attack them- it is required to disarm... so don't try this in the guardzone, folks). Simply run up to your victim and when
you see "You successfully disarm your opponent!" in the lower left corner, hit last target to snag the weapon from their
See section 1.10 for more info about disarm.
NOTE: Remember that with AoS wrestling/arms lore is no longer necessary for disarming (see section 1.10). Modify your
template accordingly if you wish.
