ok, if you promise you're not fucking with me...

as i mentioned atacks from the rear of an opponent have something like a 20% higher chance of hitting than from the front. Attacks from the side have something like 10% higher. I'm not sure if damage is higher from different sides, i don't think so.

So there is a certain amount of advantage for more mobile charcaters to get round the backs of their opponents. And for any character casting an area effect spell, for example, it definitely pays to move to a point on the battlefied where you maximise the chances of getting side and rear attacks on your target area.

As a corollary, it's also a good idea to keep your characters together in a bunch so that enemies don't get behind your lead characters. This is also a good idea so that your area effect cure spells can hit as many of your own team as possible.
