Reaper's stance was an exploit that allowed a fighter to hit all opponents within reach and with an improved chance for critical hits.[1]


Once per day, a fighter who learned this exploit could take the reaper's stance and hit all adjacent enemies with a melee weapon which caused bleeding wounds that continued to drain their health for as long as the fighter had the opportunity to attack. This exploit lasted up to a maximum duration of five minutes.[1]
