I just had a few questions re: the dodge and deflect skills, as I'm not entirely sure how combat works in conjunction with them in the game.
It feels like I'm using the dodge skill here, but I read somewhere that it's deflect?You sidestep a large, aggressive wolf with sandy fur as she bites wildly at you!
Actually, when do I use the dodge skill? I read that it applies when I'm fighting unarmed.
Again, dodge skill, deflect skill, or was their attack roll so low that no check was run on deflect?A large, aggressive wolf with sandy fur bites at you with her sharp teeth but broadly misses.
Finally, I have noticed a trend that if a wild creature roams into my room and attacks me first, they often easily get their first hit in with considerable damage. Am I defending against their first attack with the dodge skill, rather than deflect, and then it switches to deflect as combat proceeds? It feels like that, but I have no idea if that's true.
