    OK, so I have a question about disarm...

    Does it really make much of a difference in terms of chance to hit if you disarm a mob that carries a weapon? Seems like most monsters just have wrestling skill...

    Normally you are actually worse off disarming them.

    Some monsters (like Medusa) become horrifying when you Disarm them, because in the case of Medusa, her Wrestling skill is much higher than her Archery, and her Base Damage is a lot higher than her Bow's Base Damage.

    When i first read the title, i thought this was going to be about how annoying it is that the Allosaurus can Disarm the player. Which is essentially an anti-Sampire tactic, same as the Gorillas throwing 20+ damage Bananas at anyone that hits them with range or AoE (specifically Hit Area weps).

    Ayuh... was thinking the same thing about the Eodon mobs. Handy macro to set up is to arm/disarm yourself.

    Also, does the weapon mastery disarm block work against monsters? Cause at level 2 mace it doesn't seem to make any difference.
