ATTACK HELP FULL: gives information about the attack, such as speed, fatigue use, and accuracy
*** Detailed Information *** Attack is a damage dealing maneuver.
Attack tends to be a moderately fatiguing maneuver. Attacking again too soon can make this worse.
Attack tends to be balance building.
Attack is a reasonably paced maneuver, but heavy or unbalanced weapons can slow the attack further.
Attack is as accurate as most maneuvers, and is equally suited to puncture, slice, and impact weapons.
Attack temporarily penalizes all defenses, but is equally suited to evasion, parry, and shield defenses.
NOTE: The Attack command has changed so that it actually issues potentially any combat maneuver below that is relevant to the non-ranged weapon held including brawling. It also chooses an attack type that is neutral in nature meaning it does not potentially choose the "best" attack but one that brings you back into a normalized state of combat related to your fatigue, balance, and position. Use ATTACK LEFT to attack with a non-ranged/non-brawling weapon in your left hand.
See Roundtime for specific weapon minimum attainable roundtimes per attack type.

Charged Maneuvers are several new commands that take a certain amount of time to "charge up" in between the command being typed and the action is executed. The maneuver will fail if you are in RT, disabled, or out of range when it triggers.
There is a small chance that the melee maneuver may trigger for offhand as well, but it is low.
