When was that move added?
« on: December 23, 2010, 10:20:34 pm »

Spoiler: pic (click to show/hide)

saw this when training my one-armed militia commander was in the danger room.

If you don't see it, it's the commander batting the spear out of the air.

Badass.

It's fairly common if somebody is under heavy archer fire.

Pretty sure that's been there since 40d, but regardless, it is badass indeed.

I suppose it's the ranged equivalent of blocking a regular attack.

regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.

The spear is considered to be "thrown" at the target, I think, the same way with other weapons.  So, the game treats it like a projectile, and batting it out of the air is how a warrior deals with bolts.

Its actually pretty common. Had a legendary miner bat all 4 goblin arrows out of the air on his way to safety.
