TAEKATE - Imperian Online Help
Most of the Taekate abilities are affected by a variety of factors. First, being in a stance modifies the damage and speed of each Taekate attack. You will always want to be in some stance or another while using Taekate. Second, the higher your Taekate, the more likely you are to hit an opponent with a particular attack, and the more damage you will do with that attack. The advancement system of Taekate is a bit different from the other skills. You may progress to a certain level in the skill, and then you must be tested to see if you are worthy of a new belt. A test consists of successfully completing a kata, which is a series of moves, in front of a master, who has either black belt or at least three belts above you. To practice the form, you DEMONSTRATE the form. At first, you will have little chance of completing the kata successfully. With more practice however, your skill will improve and your chance of completing the form improves. When you are confident that you can complete the form without error, find a master to GRADE you. 1. White 2. Grey Jakata 3. Yellow Lisagi 4. Green Rhee 5. Blue Philos 6. Orange Tykorima 7.
