Swashbuckler is very comparable to Rampage. Both traits are stacking buffs and cap at +30% damage increase. Rampage only requires 3 kills to reach its damage cap while Swashbuckler requires 5. Swashbuckler's main draw is its ability to circumvent the 5 kill requirement through a melee kill. Swashbuckler also has a longer duration of 4.5s compared to Rampage at 3.5s.
