Characters in the game will have a number of attributes, or stats, most of which affect them in combat. Most of a character's stats can be checked by viewing the character window (shortcut "c"). Green indicates stats that are boosted by passives, buff spells, or equipment and weapons. Red stats indicate a malus, caused by spells or necrostacy. The following is a list of attributes and their effects.
These attributes are derived from the base attributes.
- Main article: Health
The number of health points the character has is determined by their level and Constitution attribute. For more details see the main Health article.
- Main article: Mana
The amount of mana the character has is determined by their level and Intelligence attribute. For more details see the main Mana article.
This is the damage that a character will inflict on a target with normal attacks. It is not a fixed value, but rather a random value within a range. This range can be seen in the character stats window, and is calculated like so:
Attack = Damage from weapons and other equipment + (Primary attribute - 20) * a
Variable 'a' takes the following values, depending on Subclass and weapon speed:
|Warlocks, Barbarians and Marksmen:||1.5||2.0||2.5||3.0|
|Conjurers, Knights and Hunters:||1.125||1.5||1.875||N/A|
The attack damage can also be increased or decreased by powers, and the damage dealt to the target is of course also subject to reduction by armour, spells, barriers etc.
Note: The attack damage shown in the character window is buggy and can display the wrong values when switching between weapons. In order to see the correct value one must de-equip all weapons and damage-enhancing equipment, and then re-equip.
Hit chance is how probable it is for your character to land a successful normal attack on an enemy target. It is weighed against the target's evade chance and block chance to determine whether the attack will be evaded or blocked. For more information about this, see Evades and Blocks.
Hit chance = Level * 4 + Primary Attribute / 2 + Concentration + 20
Most weapons carry hit chance bonuses, and many other items do too. All classes also have powers to improve hit chance in some way.
Note: The hit chance value on the character window is buggy and does not always react to changes in primary attribute.
Critical hit chance
This is an attribute not displayed at the character window. It determines how probable it is for a "Normal Hit" to be a "Critical Hit". The higher it is, the more likely it is that the hit is a critical hit. Critical Hit Chance is only calculated if the attack lands, which means you will never see a Critical Hit being evaded or blocked.
Critical Hit Chance is affected by Concentration, as well as some powers.
Evasion determines how likely it is for a character to evade an attack. It is weighed against the attacker's hit chance to determine whether the attack will be evaded or not. The higher it is, the more likely it is that an attack is evaded. For more information, see Evades and Blocks.
The evasion value is determined by the dexterity attribute, where 5 dex points make one evasion point; the full formula being:
Evasion = Level * 0.8 + Dexterity / 5 + 6
Any decimal values, eg 34.8, are always rounded down in the character window.
Special items can have evasion bonuses, and some powers can boost it.
This is an attribute that is not displayed in the character window; It determines how probable it is for a character to land a spell on an enemy target. It is weighed against the target's Spell Resistance to check if the attack will be resisted. The higher it is, the more likely it is that the power will be cast successfully on the target.
Spell Focus is (allegedly, as it is not displayed anywhere yet) affected by Intelligence, Concentration and a character's main attribute, as well as some powers.
This attribute, like Spell Focus, is not displayed in the character window. It determines how probable it is for a character to resist a power cast on them. It is weighed against the attacker's Spell Focus to determine whether the power will be resisted or not. The higher it is, the more likely it is for the character to resist a power.
Spell Resistance is (allegedly, as it is not displayed anywhere yet) affected by Intelligence and some powers.
This determines how probable it is for a character to block a certain attack. It is weighed against the attacker's Hit Chance to determine whether the attack will be blocked or not. For more information, see Evades and Blocks.
This attribute is not actually affected by any of the base attributes, rather by the shield that is equipped, and some powers.
