Jump long distances and avoid damage when falling great distances.
Increasing your skill in Acrobatics will eventually earn you recognition and additional benefits. As...
...an Apprentice of Acrobatics
, you can attack while jumping or falling. However, you cannot use power attacks while in mid-jump or mid-fall, only regular attacks.
...a Journeyman of Acrobatics
, you have the Dodge ability. Blocking while jumping makes you dodge in the direction of the jump. You will do a tumbling roll and possibly avoid an attack.
...an Expert of Acrobatics
, it costs half as much fatigue to jump.
...a Master of Acrobatics
, you gain the Water Jump ability. Jump just as you touch the water, and you can jump again as if it were a solid surface. Miss your timing... and fall into the water. With practice, you can jump several times in a row all the way across a body of water.
