Slayer is an Ascendancy passive skill for the Ascendant based on the Slayer Ascendancy class.

This skill grants passive culling strike, increased area of effect if you have killed in the past 4 seconds, and grants immunity to reflected physical damage. It also causes life leech effects to not get removed at full life (functioning identically to Slayer's Brutal Fervour node), but reduces the total amount of life recovered from each Leech.
