Statistics refer to a character's innate physical and mental abilities and aptitude.
Your character's ten stats, or development statistics, are broken up into two categories: physical and mental. Discipline and Aura are unusual, in that they are each considered to be both physical and mental.
|Strength||Strength is a measure of physical prowess. It affects a character's Attack Strength (AS) with melee weapons as well as the amount of weight a character may carry (encumbrance) before suffering penalties. The Strength Bonus is added directly to a character's AS.|
|Constitution|| Constitution is a measure of the physical durability of a character. It helps with disease, critical hits, and affects the maximum number of Health Points a player can receive. It also affects a number of other things including encumbrance and some maneuver checks. Constitution does not affect a character's stun and Health Point recovery rate.
When the Constitution stat increases, it does not automatically increase a character's Health Point total, but will increase the character's Maximum Health Point total. (To actually increase your character's hit points, you must spend points on Physical Fitness.)
To figure Maximum Health Point total, take the Base Health Point Total for the character's race and add their Constitution Bonus.
|Dexterity||A measurement of a person's hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. This aids in actions requiring precision and deft manipulation, such as picking locks, picking pockets, skinning, and aiming ranged or targeted attacks.|
|Agility||A representation of a person's grace in motion and general nimbleness of body. Actions requiring balance, maneuverability, or quick reactions are based on this attribute. Agility directly affects a character's defensive strength (DS).|
|Discipline||Discipline is a measure of a character's force of will, determination and ability to focus on the task at hand. Discipline is used in a wide range of game systems, some of which include determining the total amount of experience that a character can gain before needing to rest, and attempts to resist mental or emotion-based attacks.|
|Aura||A measure of a character's innate connection to the spiritual, mental, and elemental magic that is woven throughout the world of Elanthia. Elemental magic is strongly tied to Aura, and a character's spirit points (SP) are determined based on this stat.|
|Logic||A person's capacity for critical and rational thought, reflecting their ability to reach logical conclusions based on available facts. Logic affects how much experience a character can gain before needing to rest, how quickly a character can absorb that experience, and the ability to activate magical items and scrolls.|
|Intuition||A person's innate or instinctive ability to sense things without conscious deduction or critical analysis. It is distinctively different from Logic in that it refers to the ability to make decisions or leap to conclusions with little or no overt supporting evidence, relying more upon subconscious "hunches." Included in intuition would be what is commonly referred to as a "sixth sense", prescience, perception, and luck.|
|Wisdom||A representation of a person's common sense, pragmatism, ability to draw upon past experiences to evaluate new challenges, and the ability to examine problems and issues from multiple perspectives. Wisdom also represents a person's conscious connection with spirituality. Spiritual magic is strongly tied to Wisdom.|
|Influence||A person's ability to influence others. Some aspects of Influence include leadership, inspiration, persuasion, intimidation, fear, presence, and personal charm or magnetism. Magic or abilities that affect the target's mind or emotions are typically more powerful for casters with a high Influence attribute.|
Starting Stats and Stat Growth
Statistics are assigned at character creation.
Statistics can only increase when your character reaches a new level. That doesn't mean they will go up every time you train, but that is possible. The rate at which statistics rise is based on race, profession, and variety of other factors.
Players are given 640 points to allocate among their stats, with their profession's two prime requisites getting an additional ten points (maximum 100), for a total of 660 points.
Note: When creating a character through the web interface, the prime requisite points are applied on the creation screen: you will see two of the stats start at 30 instead of 20. When creating a character in a client connection, all the stats start at 20 and the points will be applied after you set all of the stats.
The INFO command allows you to see your current stats. INFO START will show how the stats were originally assigned at Level 0.
Determining Training Points Based on Stats
Training points are determined using the following equations:
Note: Prime requisites count double wherever they are in the training point equations.
|Profession||Prime Requisites||Mana Stat(s)|
|Bard||Influence & Aura||Influence & Aura|
|Cleric||Wisdom & Intuition||Wisdom|
|Empath||Wisdom & Influence||Wisdom & Influence|
|Monk||Strength & Agility||Logic & Wisdom|
|Paladin||Wisdom & Strength||Wisdom|
|Ranger||Dexterity & Intuition||Wisdom|
|Rogue||Agility & Dexterity||Aura & Wisdom|
|Sorcerer||Aura & Wisdom||Aura & Wisdom|
|Warrior||Strength & Constitution||Aura & Wisdom|
|Wizard||Aura & Logic||Aura|
Raw Stat vs. Bonus
Each raw stat has a value from 20 to 100. To take a character's race into account, the raw stat is converted into a bonus by the following formula:
|Bonus = ⌊(RawStat - 50)/2⌋ + RaceModifier|
Stat Growth Rate
- Main article: Statistic growth rate
The following charts show the professional baseline values for Stat Growth Intervals along with the racial modifiers. To determine the Stat Growth Interval for any profession and racial combination, simply add the corresponding values from the two tables. The simple rule is that the higher the Stat Growth Interval, the faster the stat will increase. To determine when a stat will increase, apply the following formula:
Divide the Current Value of Stat by the Stat Growth Interval and round down to the nearest integer. If your new level is evenly divisible by this value, then the stat will increase. Stats will not increase beyond 100.
Example: A 22nd level Dwarven Rogue with an 84 Constitution has a Stat Growth Interval of (Rogue: 20 + Dwarf: 5) = 25. 84/25 = 3.36, which rounds down to 3. Therefore, the Dwarf's Constitution stat will next increase at level 24, because level 24 is the next level after 22 that is evenly divisible by 3.
Statistics and their bonuses are a factor in many formulas, with different stats influencing various actions, attributes and spells, as well as a character's AS, CS and DS. In addition, the raw values for the statistics also significantly influence how many training points a character is allocated each level.
Below is a summary of all the statistics. Here, each statistic is listed with its type, professions for which it is a prime statistic and the main systems affected by that particular statistic.
|Strength||Physical||Monk, Paladin, Warrior||Melee AS, Ranged RT, Encumbrance,|
|Constitution||Physical||Warrior||Hitpoints, Encumbrance, Disease, Criticals|
|Dexterity||Physical||Ranger, Rogue||Spell Aiming, Ranged AS, Melee RT, Picking Locks, Disarming Traps, Critical weighting, Ambushing, Skinning|
|Agility||Physical||Monk, Rogue||Melee RT, Physical DS|
|Aura||Hybrid||Bard, Sorcerer, Wizard||Elemental CS, Elemental TD, Spirit, Elemental Mana|
|Logic||Mental||Wizard||Experience Pool, Experience absorption, Mental CS|
|Intuition||Mental||Cleric, Ranger||Detecting Traps|
|Wisdom||Mental||Cleric, Empath, Paladin, Sorcerer||Spiritual CS, Spiritual TD, Spiritual Mana|
|Influence||Mental||Bard, Empath||Trading, Mental mana|
Maximum Statistic Bonuses (Non-enhanced)
Each race has a maximum non-enhanced stat bonus when the stat reaches a value of 100. This table displays those maximum values.
Note: It is not possible without enhancives for any race, at level 100, to have a 100 value in each stat.
