Ah, OK, now I kinda of get it. But, if this idea pass, couldn't be changed for a single turn passive? Like cleave, but with a small chance of activating?

Not without a Java code change in the game engine

So, I don't think Cleave is a practical skill, I prefer Taunt, make attackers loses their AP. I had it at level 52 and start getting closer to invincibility from then on (except for Suellengard, I still have to be careful in that area)

Well, comparing Cleave to Taunt is not really fair to Cleave as Taunt is an AWESOME, high-level skill.
The only downside to cleave is if you don't have your attack cost at 3 AP, then you need to get the two levels of it.

Yes, which in turn requires another level of hard hit and another level of weapon accuracy. So getting to level two of cleave requires six skill points, which is a lot.

Very worth it though.
Getting 6 AP back (per kill) when farming mob groups is broken. This skill shines the most in places like "Lodar's Cave" :)

In my opinion "Taunt" is a huge waste of points. So, "Cleave" is a much better alternative.
For "Cleave" to work successfully you need good AC which, conveniently enough you get +24 with 2 points into "Weapon Accuracy"
