  • Offensive Mult: See Defensive Mult. The higher the number, the more likely a character will attack, the more often they will attack, and the more often they will power attack.
  • Defensive Mult: See Offensive Mult. The higher the number, a character will block more often, hold their block up longer, and bash more often if they're capable of doing so.
  • Group Offensive Mult: This will override the offensive mult above. The more actors that are attacking the player, the less offensive they will be, based on this mult. The higher the mult, the more offensive they'll be in groups.
  • Avoid Threats
    • Avoid Threat Chance:
    • Dodge Threat Chance:
    • Evade Threat Chance:

  • Bash
    • Block When Staggered/Recoiled:
    • Bash Mult: The higher the number, the more likely an NPC will bash the player either with a shield or a special attack flagged as a 'bash'. This can result in the player being staggered, thus interrupting animations and temporarily disorienting & disabling actions.
