I searched for this and couldn't find any thread dedicated to it, just a bunch of little tid bits here and there, so I figured I'd post...

What exactly do each of the Attributes do? and what about the Elements?

So far this is what I've noticed, however I could be off because I haven't experimented too much.

Strength is mainly for your DPS
Vitality is mainly to add HP's
Dexterity is mainly adds evasion

I haven't messed with magic at all and have no idea what piety is for. Also, not sure where defense or magic defense comes from...

I know the formula for what exactly they do hasn't been figured out yet, but anymore info than I have here would be great. Maybe I can even keep it updated with the info posted.

Elements deal with a number of things... think of it as your affinity with that element. Things like attacks/spells/resistances/crafting/harvesting are affected by it.

I've been looking for something like this, all of the starter guides I've read were nothing as detailed as this..I shoulda expected as much from the good ol Allakhazam!

What adds to evasion? I've heard that Pugs are supposed to have high evasion, but none of the stats say it adds to it? I thought it was Dex, which would kinda make sense still.

With that said, I'll update my initial post, and add this link..maybe it'll help someone else out.

Actually your thread made me realize I need to add in a little blurb about the elements into the newbie guide, so thanks for that!

One more thing. For a fighter char, does elements really matter except for resists and crystal/shard drops? Tried to find info about this aspect but so far found none.

So, basically is it a good idead for a fighter to spread points between all elements? (Unless needing a lot of drops from one element or mainly fighting monster that do dmg in one element)
