Default Move and Attack Maneuver

According to Page 31 of the Exploits book:
"For a melee attack other than a slam (p. 40), you have -4 to skill and final, effective skill after all modifiers cannot exceed 9."

Let's say I have a 22 Broadsword. I might as well throw in rapid, deceptive attacks to the vials:
22 Skill
-4 for maneuver
-3 for rapid attack
-2 for deceptive attack
-3 to the vitals

10 to hit, modified down to a 9 as per the rules.

Right?

To make a deceptive attack, your final effective skill must be at least 10.
As such it's impossible to perform deceptive attacks on a move and attack.

Oh interesting. I never would have caught that you can'd do a deceptive attack by definition on a Move and Attack.

What the above said, you also can not rapid strike with a move and attack.

You can work around the Move and Attack effective skill limit by spending 1 FP for a Heroic Charge (Martial Arts page 131), thus allowing you to make a deceptive attack.

The moral of the story is if you are going to do a move and attack, either go for the eyes or use a shield. But really, if you’re going to be in melee, a shield is invaluable. DB is huge, block is superior to parry, and the no cap on slams for move and attack is gravy.

By adding to the damage you do, and subtracting from the damage the recipient does back a shield is very key to actually causing the right person to fall over

Pro tip: You’re often more likely to knock your opponent down when doing a shield rush at lower speed, since doubling the opponent’s damage requires a lower margin when the absolute numbers are lower, and the effect of you DB matters more.

Especially if your opponent can roll 0 or 1 damage.
