Rock, Paper, Scissors - Sub-Types of Skills
There are three different sub-types of skills.
DIRECT DAMAGE TECHNIQUE (REAL MOVE)
A common attack technique which deals direct damage. A blocking opponent will receive less direct damage.
This attack also reduces “block energy” of an enemy and thus, can break a block after a certain amount of damage was done.
FEINT TECHNIQUE (EMPTY MOVE)
Used to instantly break a block/parry stance of an opponent. This is a key ability for enemies who constantly block your direct damage attacks.
Breaking a block prevents parrying further attacks for a couple of seconds.
DEFENSE TECHNIQUE (PARRY)
Blocking an enemy attack reduces the damage you receive.
Skills labelled as Parry Skills (green circle) are activated once and work as semi-passive abilities that grant you certain buffs whenever you block an attack.
Standard short-key for blocking is 'Right Mouse Button'.
