For combat moves to be effective, a player must raise either Unarmed Combat or Melee Combat, preferably both.
Heavy changes to the combat system were made in the update.
In order to learn a combat move, an animal must be defeated in melee combat. The move learned is based on the animal defeated, but otherwise appears to be random. (Minor note: During the first iteration of combat discoveries, prerequisites to use the move had to be met. As of world 10, this is not the case and you can pick up moves at random. Some players have had issues with getting a move like chop without getting a way to gain initiative points.)
A note on "μ":
Quote from jorb:
"Spending more points on a combat effect increases the efficiency of said combat effect in that school. The meaning of increasing the weight of some particular combat effect is indicated in the descriptive text for that combat effect by a μ-symbol (Mu). The actual value of μ ranges from 1 to 1.5, depending on your weighting. Usually, a higher weight for some particular combat effect will serve to reduce its cooldown, increase its damage, or the like."
Moves in italics are available for free to hearthling when acquiring 'The Will to Power' skill.
General formula for determining amount of opening seems to be: Where is attack weight, is defense weight, is base opening % from the move, and is the current opening of that type in the target. Example: A player who has 50 uac, 25% green opening and is in lvl 4 Chin Up defense mode is attacked by a player with 100 uac by level 5 punch. Defense weight will be and attack weight will be . The opening that will be added to the defending player will thus be and the total opening will be 38%
