1. I've noticed elbow doing significantly less damage when it
disorients. Unless the effects are cumulative, and even then,
I would like it to do its full damage, however meager that is.
2. Str is the only one of the 3 fight stats that doesnt have
a non-tumble-able skill that checks for the same stat. What
I mean is, dex has kick that isn't tumble-able and is dex vs
dex, con has warcry that is fairly con vs con, but str's
elbow seems to be more str vs con rather than str vs str.
I hope something that's strictly str vs str and cannot be
tumbled introduced soon, or have elbow switched to str vs
str. It is my reasoning that deviating from stat vs stat
skills (stat vs another stat, for example) just makes for
certain types of chars being overpowered -- it seems that
if you were to gear for leas susceptibility with 160
pts, you would just get 100 con and 60 dex over any
other combination :p

I think elbow is underpowered as it is
For a str skill it dose diddly. 15dam ouch that hurts
but also Elbow could be the reason bash is so good
Elbow should be doing just as much or more damge as kick

Elbow also disorients, which causes alot more problems/trouble than
the damage it does. No other skill can prevent the oponent from
using skills or spells like elbow can. High damage AND disorient
was, and would be again, too powerful.

Damage i don't mind much, but again, the main concern of the
post was not damage -- it's it being str vs. non-str.
It doesn't even land all that well against non-str chars atm,
and disorient isn't too frequent nor too debilitating (all
my opponents manage to flee and rent it with ease, not to mention
casting their spells the same line i've disoriented them).
Also, it doesnt make sense to me, at least, that it would do 30
some pts on a non-disorient while doing only half that on a
disorient. It should do 30ish all the time imho, it's still
25% or so less powerful than kick.
