How important are initiative and riposte to an aimed blow? I'm not speaking about Primus, but maybe up to AD tourney level. I've never considered initiative for be a huge concern for the style (maybe that's why I stink at them) and I think riposte skill is pretty much useless (and I KNOW that's one of the reasons I've never graduated a parry riposte.)

I'll give full disclosure on this one since one of you is going to kill her in the next rookies tourney. 12-4-7-21-8-11-21

So her starting skill base is

Int 11
Rip 11
Att 17 (at least +3, ADX in attack on rollup)
Par 6
Def 12
Dec 9

It appears that she got hosed in both Int and Rip (at least -2) according to the wit statements. I'm assuming that this will not be a big deal in the overall picture at least through basic, but with my struggles with AB's I thought I might be overlooking something that may be obvious to one of you.

Oh, and don't get to excited if you kill a Street Walkers AB in the next tourney, I'm sending 15 to 20, so there is plenty of body bags to go around for everyone.

Very nice AB! I know almost nothing about ABs so I will not comment on the INI/RIP question, but had to say Nice looking warrior and good luck

AB's are notorious for getting hosed in Init and Rip, but I think it's more of an error in the web program. Don't worry about it, every AB is in the same boat unless they're blessed in those areas.

We wouldn't consider it a big deal.
The Att bonus is needed and nice.
Hope you do some decent damage.
As you noted, the big challenge is keeping it alive.

Thanks! I didn't think it was a big deal, but to be honest I just don't know the style well enough.

She came back with normal damage, and very little endurance. I could have improved her damage and endurance, but I really the double 21's.

Anyone not taking the double-21's would be deemed "tainted"!


Note also that the vl endu will probably not be much of a negative factor either.
