Stats are numerical representations of a character's power in certain aspects of their build.

Basic Stats

Stat Description
Gear Score This is the sum of all Gear Score values from the gear your character currently has equipped.
The Gear Score is a numerical representation of your equipment's power.
Some dungeons have minimum Gear Score requirements, but greater rewards.

Off-hand items do not contribute to your Gear Score (eg. Shields, codices, and one-handed weapons)
Attack This stat represents how effective your character will be in combat.
Affected by weapon attack, physical attack, magic attack, critical rate, and critical damage.
Defense This stat represents your character's overall defenses and reduces damage taken from enemies. Affected by Defense attributes on your equipment.

Attribute Point Stats

See also Attribute Points

Players can receive Attribute Points from completing various activities in-game including levelling up, completing quests, earning trophies, etc. These Attribute Points can be used to increase certain stats. Similar to Skill Points, Attribute Points can be freely reset at any time if a player chooses. No more than 100 Attribute Points can be allocated to each of these stats except Critical Rate which is maxed at 60 Skill Points.

During the Closed Beta, some of these skills did not properly increase the other stats the description says they are supposed to. For example, LUK not giving Critical Rate as stated.
