Attack Categories - Midkemia Online Online Help

13.1.1 Attack Categories

Almost all offensive skills have an associated Attack Category, which determines the type of attack and which defenses are strong or weak against that attack.

Each Attack Category has different strengths and weaknesses, and it is generally wise to vary your attacks among the different categories so your opponent must often switch defenses, making it more likely that your attacks will connect.

The Attack Categories are:

     Attack Category           Strong Vs.          Weak Vs.
     ---------------           ----------          --------
   - Shoot                     Parry, Block        Duck
   - Slash                     Dodge, Duck         Parry
   - Splash                    Parry, Block        Jump
   - Stab                      Jump,  Duck         Dodge
   - Touch                     Dodge, Jump         Block
