Combat skills are the skills that control the player character's intrinsic, non-circumstantial, non-talent-based ability to fight. This includes fighting unarmed, with 1 handed and 2 handed weapons, with thrown and ranged weapons, and utilizing additional tactics such as two-weapon fighting, and sneak attacks.[1]

Melee[edit | edit source]
