I want to create a combat system, what should I do?

Okay ive spent the last 5 hours reading tutorials and watching videos on how to implemetn an attack into the third person template. So far I have not been able to find a single one that doesn’t use clunky premade animations. I have no idea what to do, this is my first time using unreal engine. Im trying to create a basic combat system based on Dark souls. Example - YouTube
I Want to be able to create this, but not spend 30$ and have it be done for me. Can anybody tell me if this is even possible for me to do and how I would have to do it.
