Mounted Combat

(E) Ride-By Attack

(E) Ride-By Attack

  • Attribute:  Constitution
  • Type:  Attack
  • Time:  One action
  • Description:  This skill is used to strike an opponent with a proficient melee weapon from the back of a mount while in motion. When calculating damage from a hit, add the mount's single action move rate at the time of attack to the weapon damage, plus one per skill point in Mounted Combat. It may be used as a Hack, Stab, Swing, or Joust attack (assuming the character has the skill) against mounted or unmounted targets, though a single target may only be struck once during a pass, with all related and general combat modifiers applied normally. On a successful skill check, the target is hit and may defend normally; if the skill check fails or the target makes a successful defend, the attack misses.
  • Prerequisites:  Four skill points in Mounted Combat
