Help : Critical Attack

If you are new here, you may want to download one of many MUD clients, and see our getting started guide.

(such as "spell" or "MUD Basics")

   Critical attacks can be turning points for the battle, whether it be a
well-aimed strike or an unfocused swing for minimum damage.

   A 'Well Aimed' hit is considered a critical hit, and deals out more than
the maximum damage capable by your weapon, i.e., based on stats up to 150%
your maximum damage.  Items that affect critical affect your chance to land
a critical attack.  In addition, two-handed weapons have a greater chance of
dealing a critical hit.

   On the flip side of the coin, low strength and focus or negative bonuses
can result in very 'Weak' hits.
