The epistemic approach to probabilistic argumentation as- signs belief to arguments. This is valuable in dialogical argumentation where one agent can model the beliefs another agent has in the argu ments and this can be harnessed to make strategic choices of arguments to present. In this paper, we extend this epistemic approach by also rep- resenting the belief in attacks. We investigate properties of this proposal and compare it to the constellations approach showing neither subsumes the other.
