Dirtkick is a combat manevuer that allows the character to attempt to kick dirt into the face of an opponent in order to temporarily reduce their attack strength, perception bonus, and chance at evading, blocking, or parrying attacks. Targets also receive a roundtime penalty up to six seconds. Dirtkick is just as effective when done from a defensive stance as it is from an offensive stance.

This maneuver is universally available to all professions and considered vital in many training paths.
