the latest series of community answers for The Elder Scrolls Online, the key is what kind of abilities are relevant. The skills on those slots are meant to serve as utility rather than raw damage, with your main attacks serving as your primary means of doing damage. Although a few skills will have added damage under certain circumstances, that's not the overall goal.
Beyond that, the answers also address the issue of charging attacks and moving, which is both allowed and encouraged.

Check out all of these answers and more in the full rundown.
