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.
Wrestling compliments Magery very well, as a mage requires 2 free hands to casts spells and to meditate, and they are less likely to be interrupted during spellcasting.
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.
