maneuver [friend]
Usable by: Assassin (level 35)
Stat: dexterity
Skill Delay: 4 rounds (8 seconds)
Other info: starts fights

High Mortal assassins who are fighting in a group may use their teammates as distractions while the assassin flanks the target to deliver a vicious blow.

By employing this skill, the assassin swaps to make their victim the primary target. Their new target will also focus on the assassin who uses such nasty skills.

Example: Khayyin and Morgan are battling with the Emperor, but the Emperor's focus is on Morgan. Khayyin types 'maneuver morgan', which causes him to deal a devastating blow to Morgan's target (in this case, the Emperor) as well as making the Emperor begin pounding on Khayyin (though he has not forgotten about Morgan...)

If the attacker's focus is already on you, then you maneuver behind your ally, making him the focus of the enemy's rage.
