Axes is a PvP skill in McMMO that allows players to have more powerful axes when used in combat.
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.
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) and 10% critical hit chance.
Critical Strike is a passive ability which gives players a chance to do additional damage, up to 3 hearts if you activate Skull Splitter and with Strength II
Every skill level in axes awards a 0.05% chance to deal a critical strike, causing 3x damage to [hostile] mobs, and 2.5x damage to other mobs.
