Unarmed Combat

Damage formula

Damage can be calculated by the following formula:

[math]damage = MoveDmg * \sqrt{(str/10)}[/math][Verify]

(Shouldn't the Unarmed Combat ability be a factor?)


MoveDmg is the listed damage of the martial art used
str is the strength of the hearthling

The base damage of a basic Punch is 10. For a hearthling with a Strength of 80, their damage would be calculated by:

[math]damage = 10 * \sqrt{(80/10)} = 28 [/math]

Damage is reduced by the current defense that your opponent has raised depending on its type. The amount of defense removed is based off the weight of the attack.


There are currently four types of moves in Haven & Hearth;

Striking, Backhanded, Sweeping, and Oppressive.

For an attack to do damage to a foe, the foe cannot have a defense up of the matching type. For example if a hearthling is using the punch ability, and the foe has a striking defense up (Marked by a green triangle in the top left corner of the move box) then the punch will damage the defense first.


Attacks are moves that inflict damage on your opponent. Using an attack will cause a cooldown based off the listed cooldown of an ability. The attacker must deplete the defense bar of the target of a matching type before actual damage is inflicted on their HP. Having a higher agility than your opponent will make your cooldowns shorter, and your foes' longer. Grievous damage is damage done to your foes HHP. New moves are discovered via green highlighted combat discoveries while fighting certain foes, there also seems to be a level requirement to unlock some abilities.
