Way of Dark
Untamed - Increase speed 20%. Increase health by 3 hearts.
If passive increases to stats are your thing, the Way of Dark's Renegade is right up your alley. You'll have Lurid Strike and Spin Slash to cut your way through opponents who select more cowardly abilities. The extra speed will help you close gaps, and the extra health will put you above even those with Durable (for one or two rounds anyway).
Leads to: Savage or Gloom
