The skill determines the frequency of attacks and damage dealt. At 70 skill, the player can Disarm an opponent and at 90 Paralyzing Blow is added. Tactics is needed as well.
Training is the same for all weapon classes, even for unarmed combat. First, buy training from a Dimethro The Wrestling Instructor in New Haven for 40 points. After that, only real battle leads to improvement. Therefore, here are the best battlegrounds for the varying skill levels.
|Skill Level||Training Methods|
|30 - 60||Skeletons, preferably 1-3 at a time, which can be found in any graveyard.|
|60 - 70||Lizardmen, such as those found in the top level of Despise.|
|70 - 85||Ogres, again in Despise, but at lowest level this time (avoid the Ogre Lords)|
|85 - 100||Earth Elementals found in Shame or Despise level 2.|
|100 - 110||Cyclopean Warriors found in Cyclops Valley in the Lost Lands and Despise level 3.|
|110 - 120||Troglodytes found in the Painted Caves|
