The low level 'feint' skill allows you to use feints in battle. If you successfully feint, your enemy will be open to an attack of opportunity, and will have a harder time dodging, parrying, or blocking your attacks for a short time. Falling for a feint can also demoralize an opponent. Feinting an enemy also decreases the amount of time it takes for attacks such as flourish, flick and crippling strike to regain full effectiveness. High impact weapons like hammers and axes are more difficult to feint with, as are two-handed weapons. Enemies with a high dexterity compared to yours will be harder to feint, and enemies that are smarter than you will also be harder to feint. Note that truly stupid, unintelligent entities are completely unaffected by feints, as they lack the intelligence to plan ahead. Feinting works best in conjunction with other melee combat skills, as it not only weakens an opponent's defenses and demoralizes them, but also makes them easier to disarm and trip.
