Drow Slicers are trained to make the most of an enemies failure, using its temporary disadvantage to move into useful positions. Slicers attack in swarms attempting to overpower enemies with sheer numbers rather than strength. When going into battle, Slicers know that they will most likely die and so have no fear of death.

Rushing into battle in swarms, Drow Slicers use Slicer Training to move into flanking positions and surround enemies.
