One use of the ANALYZE command is used to gather detailed information about crafted items, including weapons and armor. The second use is in Combat Combos.

Syntax

Crafting:

  • ANALYZE <weapon | armor | crafted item >

Combo system:

  • ANALYZE <engaged enemy (optional)>

Barbarian system:

  • ANALYZE type

Use

  • This command will provide detailed information, including such things as the item's maker. The amount of information provided is based on an count that is invisible to players. The counter is based off the user's own experience at the forge, with items of the same skill as the object having greater weight in the contest.
    • For project that reside on a tool while being worked, analyze defaults to analyzing both tool and project with a combined roundtime. You may specify the name of the item being crafted to analyze the in-progress item by itself.
  • This command will provide information on what next combat move(s) should be landed on the creature you are fighting in order to cause a temporary penalty to a type of defense. See combo for more details.

Combat 3.1

Analyze in combat 3.1 has two functions; both are tied into the Combo system.

Generic combat version

ANALYZE <engaged enemy>

  • ANALYZE may also be used on an engaged enemy to attempt a tactical combo. Tactical combo success depends on the user's Tactics skill and require a certain number of moves be performed within a short amount of time. If done a large penalty is applied to the enemy's combat prowess. Additional ANALYZE attempts on the enemy will increase the size of the penalty when the combo is completed, and increase the time allowed to complete it.
  • Using ANALYZE without a target in combat works as above, but defaults to the creature you are facing. It requires you to be engaged with at least one enemy, and can apply a variety of effects and effect levels.

Barbarian Variant

ANALYZE <type>

  • Barbarians can analyze themselves to begin a self combo. These work very similar to enemy combos, except they use Expertise skill and can only be advanced by the Barbarian while engaged. Self combos do not have a strength, and subsequent ANALYZE attempts will be wasted. It is also possible to ANALYZE FLAME, ACCURACY, DAMAGE, INTIMIDATION, FATIGUE, BALANCE, VITALITY, RAGE or CALM.
  • This has been referred to as 'analyze self' whereas the typical combat analyze is 'analyze other'.
