    Introduction

    As explained previously in the guide about Attributes, each skill in Morrowind is governed by a particular Attribute, which’s value determines how well you do in the related skills. In all there are 27 separate skills, which serve your character depending on how you decided to build him or her.

    Skills also have a particular specialization which outlines what your character is best at. These are Combat, Magic or Stealth. In this article we will focus on Skills related to Endurance.

    Heavy Armor

    A combat skill, depending on Endurance.

    This skill allows you to wear a full plate of armor and move without inhibitions as the skilled warrior or soldier does. This may be common armor plates such as iron or silver armor suits, or more exotic suits such as glass armour which, although labelled as heavy armour, is actually less imposing and allows more freedom of movement. The best armor in the game is Daedric armor which offers an unequalled amount of protection, but logically it is very difficult to find it, with only one suit being available in the whole of Vvardenfell.

    Medium Armor

    A combat skill, depending on Endurance.

    Types of medium armor are the chain, scale and bonemold armor. Typically weighing less and allowing for more freedom of movement, it is durable and offers adequate protection for characters who typically need more speed or stealth. However, the best type of medium armor in game has flaws, since it isn’t as good as either the best light or heavy armors. The best cuirass in Vvardenfell is the Ebony Mail, which offers a minimum Armor Rating of 100, and a maximum of 300 (depending on your character’s AC).

    Spear skill

    A combat skill, depending on Endurance.

    This skill allows you to be able to use long thrusting weapons such as Spears or Halberd. The Argonian and the Nord are naturals at using such weapons but no particular class has the Spear skill as a major one. Types of common spear weapons are the Chitin Spear or the Iron Halberd whilst more exotic types include the Dwarven Halberd or the devastating Daedric Spear.
