Confusion on how stuff works.
Question 1. How do I perform an ability I learned (for example) jab (unarmed combat). does he do that automatically?
2. It says "benefits only when unarmed" but I clearly get the stat boost whether i have a dagger in his hand or not.
3. if str affects damage and dex affects chance to hit (ONLY WITH MELEE). then why does the missile weapon skill give dex? wouldn't that be pointless?

Slightly confused, but loving the game.

1. It's done automatically by random selection if you got the energy to perform it.
2. "Unarmed" referes to the weapon skill so the benefit is not the stat boost you see.
3. Dexterity affects both Accuracy and Evasion, so missile weapon users gain Evasion.

Im still abit confused on why a ranged missle rouge would care about evasion since he is not in the front line... and also im still confused about unarmed?

My rogue has every point in unarmed but he does like 8 damage . I can never equip anything in his hands right? not even a shield? or i lose all unarmed bonuses? And stats wise I meant I saw the rise in dex even though he was holding a dagger...

When you get a stats bonus for leveling a skill, it's permenant for that character, regardless if they are using the weapon involved with that tree. If you get +3 dex for leveling unarmed, it's global for any weapon.

However special skills, like "Jab", only happen if using the weapon associated with the skill. And they are automatic, think of it as a new critical strike your character can perform, as you don't "use" it, rather they just randomly do it whenever they can.

An unarmed attack is an attack with an empty hand, hence unarmed.

Any character has two hands. One free(!) hand is needed to perform an unarmed attack. In the other hand you can put whatever you want, a shield, a torch, a rock, whatever.

Because your party can get attacked from the side or rear, just like you can do to the monsters.
