Fiona – Lifts up the poor victim, then delivers a powerful knee to it’s spine. Ouch…

Wall + Pillar


How to:
Your back must be close or against the wall, then use the smash button.
Action:
Lan – Throws enemy against the wall then delivers a fatal kick in the groin…or the stomach.
Fiona – Throws enemy against the wall then rushes up towards the enemy and gives the victim a painful blow from the elbow.

Wall


How to:
Your back must be close or against the wall, but it must be in an angle shown in the picture, then use the smash button.
Action:
Lan – Grabs the enemy’s head and smashes it against the wall, then swings his arm causing the enemy’s head to slide across the wall with it’s body still attached. Lan howls like a sadist during the performance [not]!What a hostile fanatic!
Fiona – Grabs the enemy’s head and smashes it against the wall, then swings her arm causing the enemy’s head to slide across the wall with it’s body still attached. Fiona then shouts out a victory screech which only ends up pissing off the other players[not]

Cliff


How to:
Drag the enemy towards the cliff and use the smash button. You must be facing away from the cliff before using the smash button.
Action:
Lan – Swing the enemy around, causing Lan and the enemy’s back face towards the cliff. After the quick transition, Lan will scream appropriately, “THIS…IS…SPARTA!!” [Not really] and delivers a decisive kick causing the enemy off the cliff and into its grave.
Fiona – ^ What he said

Objects


How to:
Position yourself so that your back should be facing towards the pile of objects. After that, use the smash button.
Action:
Lan – Lan grabs the enemy then throws himself backwards with the enemy tightly grasped in Lan’s arms then bashes the enemy at the pile of objects.
Fiona – ??

Mob


How to:
You should be facing close towards the mob (Enemy should be facing away),then hit the smash button.
Action:
Lan – Lan will quickly kick the victim at the mob and score a strike! Wait this isn’t bowling…
Fiona – ^ What he said

Pickup Object


How to:
Use the grab button on an object that only your character is capable enough to carry(You’ll be able to carry heavier objects as your STR grows). You can either throw it, normal attack with it, smash with it, or maybe all the choices if it doesn’t fall apart by then. Use the Secondary weapon button to aim if you wish to throw it will accuracy.

Tips

  • You can only grab minion type training dummies, gnolls, and kobolds. You cannot grab anything else, even mini bosses and bosses.
  • Grab smash causes massive damage and has the ability to 1HKO certain monsters depending on your attack power.
    (White Gnolls + Green Kobold will bare with your grab smash)
  • Grab smash would be the fastest method to kill an enemy
  • With enough stamina you can normal attack combo the enemy, grab, 2x normal grab attack, and then a grab smash.
    Key = S (x4?) + W + S (x2) + D
    Mouse = Left Click (x4?) + E + Left Click (x2) + Right Click
    (Shorten the combo depending on the monster’s hp or your stam)
    Throwing the victim should be used to hit mobs or objects if your distance is limited for a smash.
  • Additional tip, if you want a nonstandard animation, a key with the right mouse button on it (similar to the one for E that shows when you can pick up an object) will appear to indicate you meet the conditions for a different animation.
  • Need an object to throw at a boss? Why not use it’s minions before they’re slaughtered by you or the boss itself.
