Executioner is a generic talent that grants increased damage when paired with crowd control. All you have to do is hit the disabled target once and you gain the increased damage right away. It's an easy way to deal quite a bit more damage consistently, the only downside being that the talent is often on heroes with limited, meaning you need good team synergy to make the talent work. Heroes like Jaina and Arthas can give you near constant uptime if they're on the same target as you. Bear in mind that this talent does not affect some crowd control effects like Silence or Blind.
