The warrior 'cleave' skill is most useful in melee combat with multiple
opponents. Cleave is a succession of follow-through attacks, where
your weapon skips from one nearby target to the next. Experienced
warriors may make several hits in a single swing with this skill.
Due to its nature, cleaving does the most damage when using an edged
weapon such as a sword or an axe, and is less suited for piercing
weapons such as spears and daggers. Flexible attacks such as whips
and flails can hit more opponents at once.
One extra side effect of this skill is that if you land a killing blow,
you automatically get a 'free' cleave attack.
Like many power attacks, a cleave is most effective at penetrating the
armor of enemies that are dazed, confused, stunned, knocked down,
nauseated, demoralized or badly injured.
