new player diablo 3 x box 360 witch doctors questions

I am at level 29, act 3, using easy setting. I have not yet figured out how to strike/block using;

1 handed weapons (knifes, etc.) with sheild


2 handed weapons (axe, jewel socketed staff, etc.)


I started at level one with barbarian and the A button (skill 1) swings the axe along with right trigger (skill 6)... I am new but seems the I should have button to strike with knife/axe and block with shield. What is going on? About to give up on game. No way I am going to start over so I can have function to use all the weapons I collect. Kinda pissed. Battle net wont let me ask question on diablo 3 forum since I haven't downloaded character (WTH that is, since it gives no instructions for that)


Starting to feel like I am speaking Japanese to a german. simple question right? Well then why doesn't the game guild even address this exact question. Bout ready to just say F-it. maybe easy and diablo 3 don't go together since I am 40 hours into game and cant swing a axe or stab with knife, or block with shield.

You can't strike/block.Blocking is automatic & any weapon you pick up just increases your attack level,you dont actually press any buttons to swing it.

 You should post any other questions in the Diablo III forums here
