For each offensive melee skill in the game, there is a special quested Weapon Skill available. Each quest requires you to "break" a latent effect on a weapon, and then defeat an NM.

Each weapon requires a total of 300 "weapon skill points" to break the latent. In order to do this, you must fight Easy Prey or higher mobs, and perform weapon skills or close skillchains to build points. Once the elemental resistance bonuses from the weapon disappear from your equipment menu then you have "broken" the weapon and should trade the weapon back to the NPC that gave it to you.
