New to melee sorc, what is the interaction between Moon Strike and Bladestorm? Why are there two melee skills? Do you keep alternating between them?

Moon Strike gives you a buff for about 10 seconds. Fusillade shoots a whole bunch of swords and gives you a buff for maxblock + %mana on melee attack. Bladestorm is filler DPS.

Sort of.

Moonstrike sucks as an attack, but the buff it gives you boosts damage to all WDM skills. So you just use Moonstrike to activate the buff, then switch to Bladestorm as your main skill and drop a Fusillade when you need extra damage. You only need to switch back to Moonstrike to reactivate/refresh the buff.

The easiest way to play is to bind Fusillade, Moonstrike, and Bladestorm to keys right next to each other. Then, you can basically just hold RMB and roll your fingers across the keyboard every few seconds.

So the idea isn't to spam Fusillade?

I'm not sure that a 4-5ish second cooldown skill can be spammed.

It's not the intent, but you usually end up keeping a Fusillade active all the time anyway. You'll often need the extra DPS from Fusillade because Bladestorm's DPS drops significantly when multiple targets are in range. And the extra Mana sustain from Arcane Sustenance helps keep Mana Shield active, especially when you're taking tons of spells to the face.

So does Spell Focus do anything for melee sorcs?

Nothing I'm aware of. It might boost elemental oskills. Idk if it affects elemental procs though.

Do you think it's better to farm Duncraig for a Lachdanan instead of Fauztinville? Lower lvl mobs but sacred drop bias? I managed to get a unique Banded Plate to drop in Fauztinville but it was a Zann Prodigy ;_;
