With the release of Monks comes a bevy of new Combat maneuvers. Note that some of these fall into the new type of Combat Maneuver called a Martial Stance. Martial Stances are relatively strong, passive abilities that last four hours once activated or until another Martial Stance becomes activated, thus a character can only have one Martial Stance active at a time. Three new combat maneuvers are available to Rogues. Thanks goes to GM Finros for coding them, GM Oscuro for designing them, and to GMs Mestys and Estild for review and QC. The CMs are:
Skill Name: Duck and Weave Mnemonic: weave Hostile: No Stamina Cost: 30, with a 5 minute cooldown period during which the reactivation cost triples to 90. Other Requirements: Training in Dodging and Multi Opponent Combat is recommended. Available to: Rogues, Monks. Prerequisites: Evade Mastery (at rank 2) CMP Cost: Rank 1: (Squares) 4 Rank 2: (Squares) 8 Rank 3: (Squares) 12 Description: A 30 second boost to one's evasion chance, with lighter armor granting a higher bonus. Upon evading an attack, there is a chance that the attack can be redirected against another enemy in the same room. This redirection chance is based upon ranks in this maneuver, dodge ranks, multi-opponent combat ranks, agility and influence bonuses, and being in a more offensive stance.
