Crowd Press is a combat maneuver available to rogues, warriors, paladins, and monks. When in use, the character will attempt to maneuver in close to a target, preventing both the character and the target from moving away and performing some actions, increasing attack strength and aiming chance for small, maneuverable weapons, and lowering it for large weapons, ranged weapons, and bolt spells.

While under crowd press, the target cannot hide, move rooms, stand up, or use the Cman charge, Shield Charge, Dust Shroud or Bull Rush combat maneuvers.

Weapons with a base weapon speed of 3 or less will see benefits from use with this maneuver.
