Sever is one of the highest-hitting basic abilities available for melee and also reduces damage dealt by the target by 10% for 5 seconds. The ability has a 15 second cooldown, buffed from its previous cooldown of 30 seconds since the Legacy update.
Due to its high damage, it is commonly used as an opening move and whenever its cooldown wears off.
