The following are combat types in The Elder Scrolls: Arena.
To draw any weapon you currently have equipped you must left click the crossed swords. You will see your weapon rise onto the right side of the screen. To sheathe your weapon click the crossed swords icon again. Character movement is accomplished exactly the same way as before, by pressing and holding down the left mouse button while the cursor is in arrow form pointing in the desired direction. Swinging the weapon is now linked to the right mouse button. If you move the mouse while holding down the right mouse button the weapon will mimic the mouse movement. The following are possible attack moves:.
With a little practice you’ll find swinging your weapon is quite easy. Remember that you must be within a reasonably close distance for most weapons to hit your opponent. You must make the movement quick and decisive. Slow moving of the mouse will not trigger your arm to swing. Also remember that the right mouse button must remain depressed throughout the entire move. You do not have to release the right mouse button after every swing. Simply keep it depressed and swing again. You can also still walk while swinging by depressing and holding the left mouse button, allowing you to wade through battle chopping at the nearest foe.
