I recall getting occasional decapitation and more frequent arm cut off in days of yore.
Now in 3.62 it seems can only achieve “X nearly severed”.

With broad and bastard swords. Haven’t found battle sword yet. And Expert level in swords.
Has the severing business changed or am I just getting ‘unlucky’ dice rolls/RNG?
Sample rate is only 21 Njerpez (3 instakills with neck&eye shots) so far. “Nearly severed his head” on the unconscious, sleeping or stealth ... terminations.

I don't think I've ever gotten a full decapitation or severed a limb, and I've been playing since... 3.13 patch 2?

I have severed an arm this edition with a broad headed arrow of all things! I was amazed and it made me realise I should have been using them much more.

I recall getting severed parts in 2.80, never got that far in 2.40-2.50 , until I finally registered my copy. I’m about certain cutting off arms existed in 3.11 when I introduced my eldest to the game.
Had several years hiatus and haven’t seen full severing in the last decade.
