Skull Splitter is the only active skill for Axes
Upon Activation (Hitting a Mob/Player): Produces an AoE effect that damages other mobs within the vicinity of the first for 1/2 damage dealt. No McMMO experience is gained from enemies hit by the AoE effect. This makes 1v2 combat much more effective with an axe rather than a sword. Useful for clearing out rooms of mobs.
By default, there is a 25% chance to achieve Greater Impact. Greater Impact is indicated by this message in the chat log: *STRUCK WITH GREAT FORCE*
- This effect has a knockback effect equal to the enchantment Knockback II. In addition, it deals extra damage to unarmored enemies.
A passive skill which gives bonus damage to attacking with an axe.
The bonus damage is relative to your level in the skill, increasing by 1 (half a heart) every 50 levels. This effect caps at level 200, with a bonus damage of 4 (two hearts).
Critical Strike is a passive ability which gives players a chance to do additional damage.
Every skill level in axes awards a 0.05% chance to deal a critical strike, causing 2x damage to [hostile] mobs, and 1.5x damage to other mobs.
Armor Impact increases your ability to shatter the armor of other players.
Each skill level in axes gives you 0.02 (same as Axe Mastery, 1 more armor damage every 50 levels) more bonus damage to armor. By default, you have 1 bonus damage to armor while using axes even if your skill level is 0.
For example, having 450 skill level in Axes results you having 10 bonus damage to armor.
