The health gained from Assassin’s Cowl and Combination Blow melee will combine with Combination Blow which will give you all your health back. Combination Blow will stack with each kill which will increase your melee damage enabling you to kill powerful enemies. One-Two Punch shotgun trait will increase this damage even further.
