Furthermore, there are many active abilities that allow you to perform unique skills. There are 6 weapon skill lines in Elder Scrolls Online. They include Two-Handed weapons, One-Handed and Shield weapons, Dual Wield, Bows, Destruction Staff and Restoration Staff trees.

Passive skills in all weapon skill lines have 2 ranks each. Without further ado, below are all 6 weapon skill lines.
Two Handed Weapons Skill Line

to dish out tons of damage in the front lines.

over defense. This skill line will help you to fight against multiple enemies
or against one enemy in a duel. There are 5 active and 5 passive abilities
found within the skill line.
found in the Two Handed Weapon skill line are diverse and will help you in many
situations. For instance, Cleave will be great when there are several enemies
in front of you. Critical charge will be useful for sudden attacks and for
fighting against archers and mages. Uppercut is a great spell for controlling
the enemy as it both stuns and knocks down the target. Reverse Slash is a great
finishing strike because it deals damage according to an enemy’s missing
health. Momentum dramatically increase weapon damage and gains even more extra
damage for a moderate duration. As you can see there are great skills for different

efficiency of heavy weapons giving different bonuses to different weapon types.

mindful of your stamina pool in order to be able to use these abilities
One-Handed and Shield Skill Line
tanks looking to get increased defenses One-handed and Shield skill line has a
great assortment of both passive and active skills to hold your enemies in line
as well as help you live through encounters.
Hand and Shield skills can be used if you hold a One-handed weapon and Shield
in your hands. Unlike Dual Wield abilities or Two Handed skills, this skill
line provides you with defensive as well as offensive abilities. It doesn’t
mean that there are only protective spells in this tree. No, most of the active
abilities deal damage, but the damage level is not enough to be an all-out
damage dealer. If you want to be top DD in ESO this line will not help you. But
if you would like to be a Tank it is the perfect choice.
difference from other weapon skills is this skill path allows you to use a
large arsenal of protective and controlling abilities. Puncture reduces armor
and taunts the target. Low Slash reduces weapon damage and snares the target.
Defensive Posture reflects the next spell projective and shield Charge stuns
passive abilities of One Hand and Shield skills increases the efficiency of
blocking. Although you can block with any weapon in ESO, shields allow you to
block damage more effectively. But you need to use the shield in order to get
benefits from this skill line. If you don’t use a shield often you won’t get
the most out of this line.
