Decimate is a basic Strength ability which requires dual wielding to activate. It requires level 67 Strength to use. It has a cooldown time of 7 seconds. When activated, the player instantly attacks with both weapons for 37.6-188% of ability damage, or 48.8-244% ability damage if the target is wearing a shield. This ability was buffed to its current state at the same time as the Legacy update, and is now one of the most powerful basic abilities and has the shortest cooldown of any 188% damage basic ability. Decimate no longer shares its cooldown with Havoc, its lower level Attack counterpart.
