Ear Bite, given to you by the guy that runs the Punchout boxing tournament. I love this game. - User HeWhoIsPale sig.PNG HeWhoIsPale 13:29, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

possibly a refrence to tyson's famous ear bite?--User Gummy Joe Sig Icon.PNGGummy Joe 19:18, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
NO WAI! You think? =D --Heelz 19:26, 24 August 2007 (UTC)
Also, they probably renamed the skill because they're afraid Mike Tyson will come and eat them. --Heelz 19:26, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Can someone see a use for this skill? Every class that already goes into touch range can inflict bleeding on their own. I suppose Axe or Hammer warriors maybe? This just seems rather weak with no damage since bleeding isn't a very strong condition. - User HeWhoIsPale sig.PNG HeWhoIsPale 19:44, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

R/N touchers can use this. I got throught the Norn Fighting Tournament with a Vampiric Spirit build, I'd idle away (low energy) with wand strikes / Ear Bite / Vampiric Bite / Plague Touch (against condition spammers) until adrenaline was built up and my opponent was weakened. Then I used Brawling Headbutt (trying to interrupt a Healing Signet or similar) and spammed the vampiric touches for the kill.Hollowboy 03:10, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
I agree; to inflict bleeding, Sever Artery and Barbed Spear are both strictly better, simply by virtue of the fact that they have at least as low of an adrenaline cost, and actually inflict damage. Hopefully this skill will be buffed in future updates... right now, its little more than a novelty. --SoraMitsukai 21:12, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
meh it cant be blocked, that might be handy?--WikiWu 01:04, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
Looks like this was updated to do damage. Now it's a lead-in for Gash that doesn't suck in the same way that Sever Artery does. Unblockable + more damage at the cost of the extra delay, which is problematic vs kiting foes. I dunno, I've never tried it, though. 08:41, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
This isn't an attack skill, and that is its main failing. After using it, you have to hit again to regain the adrenaline for Gash. Sever Artery has no such problem. Vili User talk:Vili 09:17, 10 January 2009 (UTC)
...that being said, this is pretty important for running A Time For Heroes, so yes, it has its uses. Vili User talk:Vili 09:18, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

reworked the anormaly to a trivia note, seemed more fittig. since all other anormalies are skills description/effect difference and not the image of icon. 17:32, 29 June 2008 (UTC)
