Stats. What do they do?Follow

I keep hearing different definitions on what stats do and don't do. Like, DEX doesn't add accuracy only crit and VIT doesn't add defense but only HP. Kind of worried about all the DEX/VIT I've dropped into a LNC if the stats are misleading/wrong. Any help?

The only correct answer is no one knows because they have very little effect at all.

Only thing you need to worry about is that VIT = HP and MND = MP.

Patch 1.19 will see the removal of Physical Levels and a new stat system which apparently will put new weight on them.

Exactly: wait until stats are fixed before worrying too much about them.

It'll change soon so it's almost pointless to over analyze stats
