HOW SKILL WORKS
Fewer injuries in the fight.
It is priority to quickly buy this skill only on the highest difficulty setting. On lower difficulty setting you do not have to buy it right away, but it can save your life many times.
Blinding enemies in the melee fight.
This skill can help you in starting phase of the gameplay but later on you should rely on dodges connected with axe attacks.
Stunning enemies with an axe.
This skill unlocks automatically after spending 7 skill points on novice skills, i.e. those available from the very beginning.
Stunning or killing enemies with an axe.
This is more advanced version of the previous skill and the main difference is the possibility to use an axe not only to stun enemies, but also to kill them (melee fight and stealth kills). I recommend buying this skill, because melee fights are very often.
Piercing opponent's knee with an arrow to slow down his moves.
Contrary to appearances, this skill is not useless, because the ability to slow down enemies is very useful in fights with armored bandits, i.e. those with spears and shields.
Executing light armored enemies after a successful dodge.
It is worth to buy this skill, because melee fights are very often.
Dodge Kill Mastery
Executing enemies after a successful dodge.
The main difference between this skill and the previous one is that you can get rid of harder armored enemies. I definitely recommend buying this skill, because it makes eliminating toughest bandits easier.
