Mechanics

The Combat Mobility maneuver works automatically when you are attacked. If you are not in a standing position, you will automatically attempt to stand up before your opponent can attack you. Combat Mobility will not activate if you are stunned, webbed, bound, or otherwise immobilized. However, it will activate if you are free of these hinderances, even if you are in roundtime. Once activated, you will be charged the stamina cost and you will attempt to stand up. At Rank 1, Combat Mobility has a 50% chance of activating. At Rank 2, it has a 100% chance.

Additional Information

The stamina cost is charged once activated, resulting in an attempt to stand up. If the character is currently in roundtime, an additional penalty of 1 stamina point per second of RT remaining is applied in addition to the base 5 stamina. The stamina cost for this skill is capped at 25.

At Rank 1, Combat Mobility has a 50% chance of activating. At Rank 2, it has a 100% chance.

This maneuver only guarantees an attempt to stand up, not the actual standing result. Failure to stand could be due to injuries, encumbrance, armor (under)training, etc.

Combat Mobility can be toggled off and on by using CMAN MOBILITY OFF/ON.
