Sword Attacks are Melee Attacks performed with swords. Sword attack can refer to either a normal attack made with a sword or a specific type of attack skill performed with swords. Sword attacks have the same damage type as the sword used to perform them.

Many skills will refer to "sword attacks". These skills will affect both normal sword attacks and sword attack skills.

Like all specific weapon attacks, a Sword Attack cannot be used without a sword equipped.

Notes[edit]

  • All sword attack skills belong to the Warrior profession.
  • Disarm is the only sword attack skill that is not linked to Swordsmanship.
