To get +7, you'd need to kill 128. For +8, that would be 256...and so on.

I understand that cruel blow needs a 4x! check against will to succeed to confuse for ! rounds. So much is clear, but what does confusion do exactly - is confusing a 10-will creature even resulting in a serious amount of wrong direction or will it even when confused hit me most of the time? How big is the moral effect of cruel blow - remaining in control of the crowd seems important for this build - the -2 stacks for each cruel blow hit? Last edited by taptap; June 19, 2013 at 14:37.
