Feint is a special defensive skill. This defense skill makes your pirate automatically dodge one melee attack when the weapon that has the ability is equipped. It is most commonly found with Sabres and Daggers due to their being quick and light to handle advantage. This skill could be good for the new pirates to the game.
Feints are maneuvers designed to distract or mislead, done by giving the impression that a certain maneuver will take place, while in fact another, or even none, will.
