Type: Combat skill
Elbow bite is a physical attack. It is normally learnt by heroes who are not very intelligent but possess great strength. On second thought, that means all heroes. A hero who has truly mastered this skill can cause immense pain to his/her victims and is capable of biting through solid steel.
In the Godville Times:
- Day 233 g.e. Witness report: a Robbing Hood independently and quite successfully managed to learn how to bite my elbow.
In the Character Log:
- Combined “elbow bite” with one of my other skills against the Wealthy Heavenlowerer, knocking both it and myself flat. Wow!
- With artful innocence, (Pet Name) offered his toy to the Sole Eater, giving me the chance to use my “elbow bite” skill.
- Met a wandering master. In exchange for 6961 coins, he helped to train my “elbow bite” skill to level 13. Cool!
A hard nibbling of the elbow which causes little damage, although it could require a small plaster or bandage to be applied to the wound.
The hero bites the victim's elbow viciously. This can cause severe bleeding and the wound will go septic and infected if not treated within a day of being bitten.
At this level the hero can apply his/her own alcoholic venom into the flesh, bone, and bloodstream. This is not only physically damaging to the opponent, but the high concentration of alcohol will also cause mental damage (as well as quite the hangover).
In an attempt to be tasteful, let's just say that if you filmed someone using the skill at this level, it would be rated 18+.
How to perform
Hold the victim's forearm firmly at arm's length.
Gently pull the victim's arm towards your head.
Open your mouth as wide as you can.
Sink your teeth into the victim's elbow. Aim right for the joint to increase the level of pain.
