Skills in TES Blades TES Blades guide, tips

Skills are the foundation of every hero. They have the greatest impact on combat, which is one of the main features in TES: Blades. Before we explain this tree, it would be a good idea to define your style of play - a one-handed weapon with a shield, or maybe a two-handed weapon? The advantages and disadvantages of both options were discussed in the following chapters of our guide.
