Wrestling is one of the several Combat Skills that can be used in Legends of Ultima. Wrestling allows the player to use their fists as weapons and determines efficiency when fighting unarmed and most importantly, Wrestling is used as a defensive skill for damage avoidance. Wrestling skill increases the chance that a melee attacker (player or monster) will miss their attacks.
Although Wrestling does very little damage to an opponent, it is very useful to interrupt a mages spell casting. One well-timed hit could interrupt a Greater Heal spell or Fireball, which could mean life or death in a heated battle.
Wrestling compliments Magery very well, as a mage requires 2 free hands to casts spells and to meditate, and they are more likely to dodge a weapon attack, and thus less likely to be interrupted during spellcasting. (You can also gain dodge/interrupt prevention by having at least 80 in Anatomy and Evaluating Intelligence)
Wrestling skill abilities have been added to support the following wrestling moves. Toggling these abilities will cause your next attack to attempt a wrestling move.
