While not as devastating as more advanced power attacks, thrusts can be
difficult to parry or dodge. Even if countered, opponents, particularly
less dexterous ones, are often left with an opening in their defenses for
a few crucial seconds. Since only the upper body is employed, a thrust
can be executed even when a warrior's footing is impaired. A thrust also
makes an highly effective coup-de-gras against disabled opponents.
You must wield a weapon to make effective thrusting attacks. Even blunt
weapons like warhammers and maces can be used. Flails and whips, however,
do not lend themselves well for thrusting attacks.

armor of enemies that are dazed, confused, stunned, knocked down,
nauseated, demoralized or badly injured.
