I am a little unsure about many of the rank 3 epics so clarification would be very helpful.

Burst Fire 3/Relentless 3 - What exactly is meant by a wounded enemy? Is it any enemy that has taken damage, an enemy in they yellow, or an enemy in the red or does it mean something else? Also, how much of an increase in percentage do we get vs a wounded enemy?

True Grit 3 - It says I get a bonus attack when enemy hits. I thought this meant an attack vs melee similar to Vengeance Strike. I have tried the epic out but I am not seeing anything different than I do with rank 2.

Quick Draw 3 - It says it affects sneak attacks. What does this mean? What is meant by a sneak attack?

Wounded = less than 100% health. Yes. Yes. Depending on how wounded the enemy is, the bonus may be up to 25%.

True Grit will give you a response attack vs. ranged attackers.

Some attacks are so fast or sneaky that they bypass enemy talents (as will any attack from a unit that is actually Hidden). Sneak attacks usually slip past response talents like First Strike or Quick Draw. However, at rank 3, First Strike and Quick Draw are responsive enough even to intercept sneak attacks.
