Attack is a skill in Heroes of Might and Magic V. It increases the melee damage of the hero's creatures.

  • Basic Attack increases damage dealt by your creatures in melee combat by 5%.
  • Advanced Attack increases damage dealt by your creatures in melee combat by 10%.
  • Expert Attack increases damage dealt by your creatures in melee combat by 15%.

It also allows heroes to learn these abilities:
