Sacred 2:Opponent level for death blow
When an opponent's Health Points fall below the deathblow x% threshold which can be checked by looking at sigma, the player will begin at that point to deal double damage to all enemies being currently attacked whether by melee, ranged, or spell ( by spell, only pre-expansion).
Note that in Ice & Blood, death blow no longer works with spells. Death blow still works on spells in Console versions and Sacred 2 prior to the Ice and Blood expansion.

Deathblow has diminishing returns which means that a higher percentage of deathblow will have to be worn, socketed or wielded via weapon slot than will actually manifest on the player's character. Checking sigma (F key) will report the actual opponent level for deathblow %.
The following data is an example of how socketing fewer jewelry with larger amounts of death blow will yield a better true death blow %. As a character gains levels, the percentage of death blow per piece of jewelry and on items native to it that can be found and/or bought will increase. Death blow thus becomes more efficient to use at higher levels with the possibility having higher percentage of death blow while using fewer sockets.
