We need a new player guide imo
Things like, the shift key allows sliding down stairs. Armor pen only works against players that take the armor buff (?) I think that is true.
Please add more! :D
Actually, in regards to armor pen, every warrior has a base armor rating. Armor pen should work against everyone. Armor buff only increases your armor for the round (reducing the effects of the penetration).
Ah, reading the tooltip, "ignores damage reduction" lead me to believe it was just for people who took damage reduction/armor.
I think Merrik has an extra passive dmg reduction (not just armor), so maybe thats why its worded that way.
Motz posted a good new player guide that may help - https://forums.playbreakaway.com/topic/2665/motz-s-introductory-guide-to-breakaway-for-beginners
Let us know if you have any other questions.
