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.
