General Information

The Mabinogi combat system is a turn-based combat system; after a series of hits, the opponent is knocked back at which time they have a chance to retaliate. Running straight at the opponent immediately after attacking give a chance of either:

  • Attacking the opponent and the opponent doesn't strike back.
  • Attacking and damaging the opponent at the same time the opponent retaliates and damages you, causing both characters to be stunned and hurt.
  • Not attacking/damaging the opponent at all and the opponent retaliates and likely kills you.

Depending on your weapon speed, skill used to knock back/down, recovery speed (differs in Dual Wield and Single Wield), your latency, the monster's latency, the monster's attack speed, AI, your distance from the monster and a wall, one or two of the above may occur at a lower or higher chance. (Ex. Normal Skeletons - it is possible to normal attack them until they skill, also they do not have time to skill when you are using normal attack if they are only knocked back and not down on a wall. Wolves, however will charge right back at you most of the time.)

It is highly recommended to disable Nagle's Algorithm when attempting many of these tactics as some of them require close to no lag.

Mabinogi Battle Tactics are generally designed to maximize your attacks and minimize (or completely circumvent) getting hit. They generally fall into one of five families shown below.

Attack+Defend

Go on the defense during the opponent's retaliation cycle; this means that you are not attacking in any way, only trying to minimize damage. Thus usually some damage is incurred, so HP potions are recommended.
