Stat System
How does this work? Skills use certain stats each.
Swordsman mainly uses Strength and Dexterity.
Devourer mainly uses Strength and Dexterity.
FireMage mainly uses Intelligence and Strength
Mage mainly uses Intelligence and Defense
Arbalist mainly uses Strength and Dexterity
Vampire mainly uses Strength and Intelligence
But you don't need to remember this. In /skill stat, there is an explanation. Players can see which /skill improves increase with what certain stat.
Stats are colour-coded and the values that increase with the stat is colour-coded too.
Don't worry you'll see what I mean with the instructions in /skill stat. It has visual examples.

Skill types
Now you may wonder: What kind of skills are there?

1. Swordsman

Swordsman are strong melee fighters and will lose to almost nothing in melee combat, but lose out in ranged capabilities. Each attack deals bonus damage based on your STR.
Branched skills:

Parry : When holding a sword, and your attacker's STR is lower than yours, reflect a percentage of damage back

Pierce: When holding a sword, and your victim's DEF is lower than your STR, do bonus damage based on your STR

Dodge : chance to dodge melee attacks. Chance is increased, up to 30% with DEX

A Thousand Cuts: Powerful active that will immobilise a target for some time, and sword hits on these targets will deal more damage. Each hit also disorients your victim.

Strength at larger levels: Potential to deal an extreme amount of damage to players, dealing vast amounts of damage to poorly equipped players, and be the terror of cramped pvp arenas

2. Devourer

Devourers are strange aberrations that can evolve better combat traits. Attacks will deal corrupt victims, dealing damage over time based on STR

  • Level 2: Hostile mobs will naturally be neutral to you. If you attack a mob, neutrality is disabled for 30 seconds.
  • Level 3: The first attack you make before becoming invisible will deal more damage

Evolve Sadism: Remove your ability to have pity or disgust. Have a chance to heal for each attack you do.

Consume : Bite your target, dealing a flat amount of damage plus bonus damage based on your target's missing health. If the target dies, regain 50% of your maximum health

Fire Crossbow: Punching with your bow instantly fires a short range arrow with increased knockback capabilities.

Strength in larger levels: Arbalists can have different playstyles, those for snipers and those for crossbow spammers at close range. Crossbow's level reduces its cooldown, allowing you to make a powerful knockback power on any battlefield, so long as you have the energy required.

8. Vampire
