      This can be useful and you can mitigate two of the memory slots with Attar of the Blood Rose + Five Star dinner meaning it only really costs 1...just don't die...ever lol. Also with Skin Graft beforehand you can combine Thick of the Fight, Enrage and Onslaught for a devastating two turn combo. Not worth it unless you max STR and are using a two handed weapon and have high two handed stats for at least 200% crit modifier. Really all of these high level Warfare skills are just for pure warriors though,with just 3 in Polymorph. Need Ferocity Herb Mix or save ap last turn to pull it all off but its the highest physical damage possible for a STR build.

        Without Apotheosis this skill is useless. Too much memory need, too much SP cost. If this skill were guaranteed to knockdown when armor is destroyed, or cost less SP there would be a sense. Before this skill cost 2AP and 1SP and be useful for one-handed tanky builds who use shield, but now... no thanks.

          Does anyone know what the chance for knockdown is? It seems to be random, because it doesn't say "Knocked Down was blocked by Physical Armor" it says "Knocked Down Failed" and i have knocked someone down after shattering their armor with this

            I have 1600 armor, I Overpower someone with 1200 physical armor. They are NOT knocked down, because as others have said, the effect checks are out of order. Kinda lame.

              The special destroy-armor effect check is after the damage-knock down check, which makes this skill NOT as powerful as the description. If your overpower's damage is higher than your target's armor, you deals damage and set knock-down. If your overpower's damage is less than your target's armor, but your armor is higher than your target's, you destroy the armor but can't set knock-down. This means you get destroy-armor special effect or knowk-down, not both. May be a bug.

                It seems to also count as a spell when it comes to dodge%, I could be wrong but I've used it dozens of times against enemies with uncanny evasion or something similar, and it seems to always hit.

                  I used this on my lone wolf tank and it worked wonders, my guy always had more physical armour than the enemy at the start of battle or just needed to get a single hit in than you take away all their armour (10k+ damage lategame) and they don't get to take turns anymore

                    This skill is meant to be abused by ai melee sorcerers, but it's a waste for players on tactical. They always have more armor than you, so such a 'healthy and smart balance' from the devs.

                      It's a 150% damage attack than can knockdown for the same AP as a standard attack, and what else are you going to use your SP on as a warrior? That's pretty much it's only use. If it calculated the physical armor difference AFTER the strike then the effect would be useful, but it doesn't so it's just fluff text. Hard to justify the 3 memory slots for this though.

                        Just tested it, mine does about 800 armor. Hit my mate he has 400 armor and 2100 hp and it took his armor and did 400 damage. i have 1400 armor. To me for a source point seems like a waste. If my armor is higher then only benefit is if the skill did very little damage, for a non strength build. thus saving you from having to do a lot of damage to their armor.

                          Anyone note if this can backstab? Crippling blow can, so just curious if there is even more synergy with warfare/scoundrel down the road.
