Combat is a game mechanic that allows the player to gain experience and gather resources. Though it can be avoided easily on a typical day in Portia, it is required to progress through the story and complete certain missions. Combat typically involves Weapons, Creatures, Equipment, and, as needed, Consumables.
At the most basic level, the goal of combat is to defeat enemies without losing all of your HP (health points). You can view your current and maximum HP on the user interface at the bottom of the screen.
To attack, select your desired weapon in the quickbar (or if you don't have a weapon, select an empty slot on the quickbar to use your fists). Approach the enemy and left click with the mouse to attack. Be ready to dodge roll with the right click mouse button to avoid taking damage. With most enemies, they have "tells", or predictable signs that they are about to attack, so learn these tells if you want to survive particularly difficult battles.
