A jab is a sudden, unexpected punch in the middle of combat. This skill
allows a trained fighter to get sucker punches and jabs in at the enemy
between weapon blows. It works best if you have a free hand, but you
can get in a quick jab even while using a two-handed weapon. When using
a shield, however, a jab is generally not an option.
While jabs and other punching styles are common in unarmed fighting, hand
to hand attacks are unusual when fighting with a weapon. This is what
gives the jab its value. A particularly successful jab to an opponent's
head (if they have one) may leave them dazed.
Gauntlets and gloves with special damage types may even be effective
against ethereal creatures.
Hitroll and Dexterity on gauntlets and gloves will help make your jabs
