Backstab is a Rogue skill used to attempt to inflict critical damage to an opponent, the amount of which is based on skill, level, and the damage of the weapon wielded. The chances of a successful backstab are greatly increased by use of sneaking and hiding. Currently, only Short blades and Javelins that inflict piercing or stabbing damage can be used with this skill.
