Grapple critical table:

Important note: This table is not to be confused with the Grapple critical table (UCS) which contains messaging associated with unarmed combat grapple attacks.


Spells, such as the ranger spell Tangle Weed (610), the Minor Mental spell Thought Lash (1210) and certain creature attacks will inflict grapple critical injuries. Grapple criticals, which are similar to Unbalance criticals, are characterized by their ability to potentially knockdown and stun the target. However, the resulting critical injury levels per critical rank are one of the weakest of any damage type.

Notes:

  • Some of the stun round lengths may be slightly inaccurate.
  • Damage values are CS-based and also apply to grapple flaring weapons.
  • R6 R/L EYE messaging indicates target falling face first but there is no associated knockdown.

Rank 0 Critical Messaging

With the exception of the R/L eyes, the Rank 0 critical messaging does not include specific body location references. It is, therefore, not possible to place them in the appropriate sub-tables.

Messaging

These are the Rank 0 messages in no particular order.

  • Unconvincing strike.
  • Weak blow.
  • Ineffectual strike.
  • Impotent blow.
  • Barely touched.
  • Low grazing shot.
  • Try thumb wrestling.
  • Lame attempt.
