Axes is a PvP skill in McMMO. Axes are often used to attack large groups of mobs or people, and can greatly damage armor of another player. Axes are quite useful in combat, however, at higher levels, Swords do have a slight edge on them because of the Counter-Attack ability. This skill should not be confused with the Woodcutting Skill.
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 a 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 mobs, and 1.5x damage to other players.
