Attack is a Combat skill, and is used alongside Strength for Melee combat. Raising the Attack level increases the player's accuracy when using any of the three Melee attack styles: Stab, Slash, or Block. The Stab style also provides +6 hidden Attack levels, which further increases the player's accuracy while using that style. Most Melee weapons also require a certain Attack level in order to be wielded.

As a Melee attack style, Stab (which is powered by Attack) receives Combat Triangle bonuses when used against Ranged and penalties when used against Magic.

Attack experience can be earned by using the Stab attack style in combat. 0.4 XP is awarded per point of damage done to enemies.

Skill Level Unlocks

Increasing the Attack skill allows the player to equip more powerful Melee weapons. The player's accuracy rating when using the Stab attack style also scales with Attack level.
