Killer Scythe

Required Level
18
Prerequisites
Poison Slash (1)
A New ES Skill
Killer Scythe is based on the Amazon's Fend skill, but requires a 2H melee weapon to use.
Notes
Killer Scythe is faster than LoD Fend, but slightly slower than the improved ES Fend. This is because it proved Fend works much faster with other classes than Amazon and Sorceress.
For this reason, oskill Killer Scythe has no limitation while oskill Fend has. Oskill Killer Scythe is as fast as Amazon's Fend for most classes, but isn't so fast for Sorceresses. Please use Fanatic Swing if you play Sorceress.
Pros
Fast attack. Triggers CtC spells frequently.
Cons
Not so fast against a single target.
