Axe Perks

Name Reqs Attack Pattern Rhythm Effect
Blunt Strike Axe Lvl 8   STAB-SLASH-SLASH Instead of a started strike from the right, strike unexpectedly at the opponent's face. Turn your weapon around his and strike him quickly with the blunt end. If you have a shield, use its edge for striking. 
Fehler: Blinding Strike Axe Lvl 9   SLASH-SLASH-SLASH-SLASH Attack repeatedly from various sides to confuse the opponent. If you have a shield, cover your final strike behind it. If not, get past the opponent's cover with a quick strike.
Drei Wunder: Forearm Axe Lvl 14   SLASH-SLASH-SLASH-SLASH The 'third wonder' of  swordfighting is the 'Schnitt' or cut, which doesn't defeat the opponent, but makes it difficult for him to continue fighting. After several feints, slash unexpectedly at the opponent's forearm.
