I have always hated the idea that if you had 3 attacks, and seemingly the
average number of attacks characters get is about half of that. Mostly when
stats show you have 3 attacks, you should get 3 attacks. Not a percentage of

Atleast, if you have 3 attacks, the first two ALWAYS goes, and maybe 75% that
third one will go through.

Mainly, if a mob has 6 attacks, IT WILL ALWAYS HAVE 6 ATTACKS!!! That is not
quite fair for the player.

I think that mobs and players should have the same abilities, that is, if the
mob has the ability to do something the player should also.
