Dexterity: Dexterity controls the player’s Attack Power for weapons that scale with Dexterity and increases casting speed for most spells.
Resistance: Resistance increases physical and flame defense and resistance to poison.
Intelligence: Intelligence governs the power of Sorceries. It also controls weapon attack power for weapons that scale with Intelligence.
Faith: Faith governs the Miracle Power and also increases the Magic Defense. It also controls the player’s attack power for weapons that scale with Faith.
Stamina: Required for various actions. Depleted by various actions, but self-regenerates.
Equip load: Total weight of equipped items. Higher number slows movement. Exceeding max causes sluggishness.
Attack Power shows the total damage inflicted by various weapons if they strike a target without any Reduction. This value is a combination of all damage types that the weapon inflicts (physical, magical, etc.).
Defense and resistances
Defensive stats show you how strong your character is against basic types of attacks (strike, slash, thrust, magical, etc.). Your Defense against each is determined by your character’s attributes. Your Reduction is controlled by your equipment.
