Melee Combat

Melee combat consists of three skills:
Melee Focus which determines what tier weapons you can equip and your accuracy in battle.
Melee Power which determines how much damage you deal with melee weapons.
Melee Defense which determines what tier armors you can equip and your defensive capabilites against melee attacks.

Experience is gained for each attack and is equal to damage dealt times ten. You pick which skill you want to train by selecting which type of attack you want to use from the combat menu.

Weapons and armor are made using Smithing and some can be bought from vendors.
