Severance is a rune effect in Spirit Walk, a Spirit Realm Witch Doctor skill.

This rune effect causes the Witch Doctor to deal 100% weapon damage to all enemies he passed through while in Spirit Form. This is a nice damage bonus and could even be used to finish off an enemy that was nearly dead, but on the downside it could alert other players to your location, when used in the Battle Arena.
