Learn how to use your Stats appropriately!
The following are the stats that your characters use in Legionwood and how each of them work. If you know how each of these values actually affects your character's combat ability, your time with the AP System will be so much easier and you'll find character building a lot
Attack determines the base power for your physical attacks (attacks using the Strike command) and physically geared Techs. The higher your Attack stat, the more damage these commands deal.
Defense determines how succeptible you are to enemy physical attacks. Higher Defense values reduce the damage you take from an enemy's physical attacks or physically oriented Techs. (Basically, any attack where the enemy sprite actually moves up to your character to attack and does not include a casting animation)
Intellect determines two things important for spellcasters. Firstly, it determines the base power of your magically geared Techs, and secondly it reduces the amount of damage you take from an enemy's spells. Higher Intellect means that your spells are stronger and that your enemy's spells affect you less.
Agility determines the order in which the combatants act. If you have a higher Agility, you will be able to take your turn before the other participants in the battle. Agility also affects the success rate
of fleeing; if characters have higher Agility, the party can flee more often.
Accuracy determines how often your physical attacks and physically oriented Techs will hit. Your Accuracy value represents the percentage (out of 100) that your attacks will not miss. It is important to note that Accuracy only determines your base hit rate; the Evade rate of the enemy is also important in determining if you hit.
Evade determines how often you are able to dodge the enemy's physical attacks and physically oriented Techs. Your Evade value represents the percentage (out of 100) that you will dodge an attack. Like Accuracy, it is important to note that this stat only determines your base evade rate; even with a high Evade, an enemy with higher Accuracy may still hit you often.
Critical determines how often your physical attacks will hit for critical damage. The Critical value represents the percentage (out of 100) that your attack will be a critical hit. Higher Critical values
mean you hit for critical damage more often.
Threat determines how often you are targetted in battle by the enemy. Higher Threat values mean you'll get attacked more often. Combine high Threat values with high Defense, Evade and HP to create the ultimate "Tank" character.
