Skirmishing is the formidable third skill of Sentinels. Masters of their chosen weapon and skilled both in and out of the forests of Sapience, the sentinel class combine flawless technique with a ruthless savagery to achieve their ends.

Discarding the civilised constructs of chivalry and fairness, a practitioner of skirmishing uses both the environment and all tools at his disposal to eliminate all opposition. The true masters of the art are rumoured to be able to send their prey into a comatose state, or even destroy their enemies so completely that the remains can never be found.
