Rend is the only Tier 3 skill in Athena's Xiphos tree. It grants Athena access to a unique damage-over-time condition that becomes more powerful against tougher enemies, and facilitates later skills.


  • Bleed Duration: 12 Seconds
  • Bleed deals up to +100% bonus damage against targets with high health.

Using a melee attack after purchasing Rend inflicts 'Bleed' on the target. Bleed's damage scales up with the health of the target, dealing up to 200% melee damage (including all bonuses from skills and equipment) against especially tough victims.


  • There is no limit on how many enemies can be Bleeding at the same time.
  • Bleed is its own unique condition, allowing it to stack with Elemental damage-over-time.
  • Rend scales with the enemy's total health, not with their remaining health. At less than 50% remaining health, Omega-Senshu will further increase Bleed Damage.
