Overview

Electrical Melee is a standard power set that is a primary set for Brutes, Scrappers, and Stalkers, and a secondary set for Tankers.

"Electricity surges through your body and you can channel this electricity through your fists. Electrical Melee allows you to pummel your foes with various melee attack powers while jolting them with a powerful electric current. Electric Melee powers can drain foes' Endurance and temporarily halt their Endurance Recovery. Some powers may even return a portion of drained Endurance back to you."

Powers

ElectricMelee AssassinStrike.png Assassin's Shock

A signature Stalker attack. This attack does moderate damage on its own as a frontal attack and cannot be interrupted. However, if it is executed while you are Hidden, this attack will do tremendous damage as you waylay your unsuspecting foe. This attack may be interrupted if you move or are attacked while executing this power and are hidden. Using this power while not hidden will remove all stacks of Assassin's Focus regardless if you critically hit or not.
