===Backstabbing and Critical Strike===
According to the Daggerfall Chronicles, the proper formula for the damage done by a successful [[Daggerfall:
<code>3 × Base Damage</code>
And the formula for a successful [[Daggerfall:
Skills#Critical Strike|Critical Strike]] is:
<code>( 1 + (critical strike skill ÷ 100) ) × Base Damage</code>
<code>( 3 + ( 3 × critical strike skill ÷ 100) ) × Base Damage</code>
Backstabbing and critical strike combined work very efficiently in conjunction with [[Daggerfall:
Skills#Archery|Archery]] and an adequate ranged weapon.
<code>Maximum Damage = (div hand-to-hand skill 5) + 2</code>
mentionable aspect of [[Daggerfall: Skills#Hand-to-Hand|Hand-to-Hand]] is, any type of enemy can be harmed by it, even such ones that require weapons crafted of special material to be hit. In conjunction with a high [[Daggerfall: Attributes#Speed|speed]] rate hand-to-hand is even more efficient in combat.
