Stamina cost

The minimum stamina cost is 8 and the maximum is 15. Additional stamina costs are determined by the Base Weapon Speed of your attack. Weapon weight is no longer a factor in the stamina cost of this maneuver.

  • For weapons with a base speed of 5 or less, a stamina penalty of +2 per second of base speed is applied.
  • For weapons with a base speed greater than 5, an escalating penalty of an additional +1 stamina per second over 5 seconds is applied. This additional +1 stamina penalty is applied on top of whatever the previous second's stamina penalty is.
  • For two weapon combat, an effective Base Weapon Speed is calculated by taking the primary weapon's base speed, adding half the secondary weapon's base speed (rounded up), and adding 1 to the result.
