One main element of Eldest Souls is developing your own fighting styles. Each style has its own skill tree with its retrospective skills and you can unlock it as you move forward in the game.
The game allows you to choose between the three fighting styles, Windslide, Berserker Slash, and Counter. However, you can only have one of these fighting styles active at a time. You can change the style at any given point, but you can only use a single style.
Windslide: Windslide allows you to focus on mobility, gives you additional slides allowing you to remove yourself from tough situations when being attacked more easily. Windslide has more passive damage.
Berserk Slash: Berserk gives you a much higher damage per hit, though it comes at the cost of moving at a slower pace. Though the skill tree can be developed to make this option much more effective. Berserk Slash causes shock damage around you.
Counter: Counter works the way it sounds it should. When you are attacked you can dodge and use the counter ability, this will deal much higher damage on the counter move. The Counter style is the mid-ground between mobility and attack in comparison to the other two fighting styles.
This means you will need to decide which style you want to develop most and this can be a hard decision. Windslide is often seen as the handiest for newer players, while Berserk is more popular with the speedrunners of the game.
Side Note: To unlock the skill tree's options, you will need a skill point. You gain these by defeating bosses. Each boss gives you one Skill point.
