==============================================================================
With this skill, and relying on his speed, a lurker wielding his kukri or some
piercing weapon can stab his opponent with a fast and powerful blow, preferably
in a nice point that will cause the victim massive damage. This skill is also
effected by the skills Double Stab, Triple Stab and Bleed. Proper use of this
skill requires a reasonably light weapon that the user can wield with ease.
Therefore, stabbing with a weapon which is quite large for one's size and
strength will incur penalties.
A specially trained lurker, against a sufficiently weakened monster, has a
chance of instantly killing his target. The target's power, as well as the
lurker's training and previous experience with such opportunist attacks will all
greatly factor the frequency of this ability.

The cost to your endurance varies based on how vicious your stabbing is.
