The art of dying.

Dying is a skill that represents the variety of unique ways in which a character has died. The skill unlocks small, but permanent bonuses to Max Health. It also gives access to a very useful ability, therefore it is actually a good idea for new players to try to get their characters killed in a variety of situations.

Bonus Experience

The first time your character dies in a unique way rewards bonus death experience. To see a list of the unique ways in which you've died previously (and how many times each), go to Skills panel > Dying and select the button there.

New ability

At level 10 the Dying skill grants a new choice in the Death dialog, to "Enter the light". This new ability grants access to a portal to random locations, along with portals to Serbule Keep and Rahu. These last two portals have 8-hour cooldowns, however.
