Main Page / Characteristics / Body / Body control


Body control is a characteristic that helps with weapon accuracy and stealthing, and determines the mounts a player can ride.


Smithing, carpentry, tailoring, and archaeology skills all offer decent Body Control skill, as do archery, shield skills, and some weapon skills.

Chopping trees with a longsword and two handed sword also offers good Body Control gains. Note: this only works until 20 skill, or 20 effective skill on Epic.

Archery on an archery target is excellent until about skill level 30.
