Info > Weapons


Each weapon skill applies to a specific group of armaments, and determines how
well a character fights with a particular weapon. If the character has the parry
skill as well, he can parry incoming attacks. The chance of parrying is best
if the character in question is skilled at both his weapon and his opponent’s.
