I. Skill Anatomy:?picture.


1.?Skill type:
??block?reduces damage from?attack;

2.?Style element?? internal strength boosts damage of specific element styles by 16% or 20% (this boost is not displayed in skill tooltip):
??Yang?&?Hard?internal strength boost?Yang?&?Hard?(Gang) styles damage by?20%,?TaiJi?by?16%;
??Yin?&?Soft?internal strength boost?Yin?&?Soft?(Rou) styles damage by?20%,?TaiJi?by?16%;
??TaiJi?internal strength boost?TaiJi?styles damage by?20%,?Yang?&?Hard?and?Yin?&?Soft?styles by?16%.

3.?Skill category:
??martial skill?has a chance to interrupt?spell;
? certain skills has?interrupt immunity?buff.

4.?Base Skill Damage:
??yellow?number is the base skill damage (including boost from weapon);
??base damage growth?is a fixed value and is equal to lv1 skill damage * modifier.
??armors?and?weapons?can have several?enchantments?to boost certain?skill damage?by?10%?each.

5.?Skill bonus damage:
? skill may have boost from?Brawn?(red number),?Posture?(green number) or?Breath?(blue number);
? boost is not 1:1, it vary from?10% to 150%?of?attribute value;
? skill can have boost from?several?attributes.

6.?Damage type:
? all skills do either?external?(physical) or?internal?(elemental) damage;

??external?damage does not have element and can be reduced by?armor?(1000 armor = 10% damage reduction);
? gear can have enchantment to?ignore?certain amount of?enemy armor;

7.?Control types.
Dash skills?lock the target unable to move or act during skill animation;?pull,?throw,?knockdown?and?knockair?skills will lock the target unable to move or act during effect duration; all these skills will interrupt the current target action/skill, unless it has a?yellow buff?which grants immunity to them.
Stun skill?will interrupt the current target action/skill and make it unable to move or act during effect duration, stun will ignore yellow immunity buff, but?red buff?is immune to stun effect.

??internal?damage has one of 4 elements (yin/soft/yang/hard), it ignores armor but its damage is reduced by specific?element resistance(100 resistance = 10% damage reduction);
? certain?meridians?give specific element resistance, other meridians give attribute to?ignore all elements resistance;

? example from CN website:? ????????56????(?2?,???29?)? ? when you check cn websites that?s where and how damage element is displayed, this way you can check if skill damage is external or internal type; cn text says ?does 56 points of?harddamage (2 hits, 29 damage each)?;
? damage elements are following,?internal?damage:???? yang,???? hard,???? yin,???? soft;?external?damage (waigong) is???;
? if skill does not have damage numbers in tooltip ? character attributes ?external accuracy? and ?internal accuracy? keeps the name of the last NPC hit by the external/internal type damage ? just attack a different NPC and check it.
