The fourth part of the series on skills, which will look at skills related to Speed.

  • slide 1 of 4

    Athletics

    A combat skill, depending on Speed.

    This skills allows you to move swiftly, at great speed once it is mastered, and it also allows you to move freely underwater and swim like the best of Dreughs. The Argonian race is the race with most speed on Vvardenfell, and can take this skill to great heights. The Dunmer and Khajiit are also quick to move and swim appropriately.

  • slide 2 of 4

    Hand-to-hand

    A stealth skill, depending on Speed.

    This allows you to enter combat bare handed, but provides the same hit point damage and devastating effect as when using a weapon, at its highest point. When fighting bare handed you can only knock an opponent down. This happens when the opponents fatigue is damaged to the point where he/she is unable to stand up and fight anymore. Once your opponent is knocked unconscious, you can inflict damage with these types of attacks. The Monk and Rogue are particularly good at fighting this way.

  • slide 3 of 4

    Short Blade

    A stealth skill, depending on Speed.

    With this skill, you can use small swords or daggers to great effect. This includes weapons like the tantos, the short sword and exotic weapons like the wakazashi. The Dunmer race has a good short blade proficiency, with the Khajiit and Redguard also proving apt. Classes who would typically favour such weapons are Assassins, Agents or Rogues, due to how quickly you can draw a small weapon and the swiftness of the blow.

  • slide 4 of 4

    Unarmored

    A magic skill, depending on Speed.

    This is similar to wearing a shield, but instead of reducing the impact as with the Block skill, it lets you evade, deflect or even absorb damage so that your health isn’t affected. It is like wearing armor, but you have more freedom of movement since you aren’t wearing any. The Argonian race prefers not to wear armor. Classes who fare better with no armor at all include the Monk (as a major skill) the Agent or the Barbarian (as minor skills).
