Dexterity measures a character's hand-eye coordination, balance, and aim. A character's dexterity bonus adds directly to their ranged weapon attack strength, including bolt spells, and is a factor in determining melee roundtime reduction and critical weighting.

The amount of critical weighting added to melee attacks is:

Weighting: (DEX BONUS + (STR BONUS - (WEAPON SIZE FACTOR)) / 4
Weapon Size Factor: Summation((Weapon Base Speed + 1) - 3 if open handed) * 2

The weapon penalty offset from strength cannot go ABOVE 0
Weighting added cannot go BELOW 0
the "open hand" from using a two-handed weapon / polearm DOES apply in the above weapon factor formula


1. Example for a halfling with max stats using a spear gripped 2-handed (6 second weapon):

DEX Bonus: 40
STR Bonus: 10
Weapon Size Factor:
Summation((6 + 1 - 3)) * 2
Summation(4) * 2
(4 + 3 + 2 + 1) * 2 = 20
Weighting: (40 + (10 - 20)) / 4
(40 + (-10)) / 4 = 30 / 4 = 7 CER

Dexterity is a prime requisite of the rogue and ranger profession.
