Primary Stats

Primary Stats are the six fundamental character statistics that make (or break) a character. Stats start out with a base value of 1 and can be raised as far as 99. Base stats are increased by spending stat points and higher stats costs more to raise. Stat points are gained with base level increases, the amount increasing with higher levels. Since all stats start as a value of one, the starting stat of one essentially counts as a zero.

STR

Strength: This stat affects the "melee" physical power of the character, allowing it to deal damage even if no weapons are equipped if a sufficient amount of STR is invested. The STR value is also multiplied to the Weapon ATK value for even more damage increase.

When using "melee-type" weapons such as Axes, Books, Daggers, Katars, Knuckles, Maces, Spears or when Bare Handed, every point of STR provides:

  • Status ATK +1

  • Weapon ATK +0.5% (only on Base Weapon ATK, and this bonus is pseudo-elemental)

When using "ranged-type" weapons such as Bows, Guns, Instruments and Whips, every 5 points of STR provide:

  • Status ATK +1

Every point of STR provides:

  • Weight Limit +30

  • Decreases Extreme Vacuum duration by 0.04s.

STR specific:

  • ATK

  • Weight Limit (base stat only)

AGI

Agility: This stat affects the speed of the character in many aspects, allowing it to attack faster and dodge attacks more often.

Every point of AGI provides:

  • Flee rate +1

  • Increases Attack Speed

  • Resistance vs. the following Status Effects:

    • Bleeding: -1% chance from being inflicted

    • Sleep: -1% chance from being inflicted

Every 5 points of AGI provide:

  • Soft DEF +1

The actual ASPD calculation depends on AGI, DEX, ASPD Potions and skills, the type of equipped weapon, and current job class. It can take between 1 and 20 AGI to increase ASPD by 1. More details can be found in the entry for ASPD discussion.

Substats

Substats are secondary stats which are determined by the primary stats, along with their equipment and skills.

ATK

ATK is the total physical damage output before factoring in Attacks or Skills.

Attack: The physical attack rating for both ranged and melee weapons. It is listed as A + B in the Status Window, where A represents the Status ATK and B represents the sum of Weapon ATK (base weapon damage and its base bonus damage from refinement) and Equip ATK (bonus damage from equipment and buffs). Only B is affected by Element, except when using Mild Wind. The Status Window does not show the total ATK used for the Attack damage calculation.

A (highlighted in green) + B (hightlighted in red)

MATK

MATK is the total magical damage output before factoring in Skills.

Magic Attack: The magic attack rating. It is listed as A + B in the Status Window, where A represents the Status MATK and B represents the Weapon MATK (equipped weapon and its refinement rate) and Equip MATK (equipment and buffs). The MATK as whole is affected by Element. The Status Window does not show the total MATK used for the damage calculation.

DEF

Defense is the total physical defense that is factored upon physical damage, which is generally based on ATK as whole or partially.

Defense: The defense rating against physical damage. It is shown as A + B in the Status Window, where A represents the Soft DEF and B represents the Hard DEF. Hard DEF cuts damage relatively, whereas Soft DEF is an absolute reduction with that number.

A (highlighted in green) + B (hightlighted in red)

MDEF

Magic Defense is the total magical defense that is factored upon magic damage, which is generally based on MATK as whole or partially.

Magic Defense: The defense rating against magic damage. It is shown as A + B in the Status Window, where A represents the Soft MDEF and B represents the Hard MDEF. Hard MDEF cuts damage relatively, whereas Soft MDEF is an absolute reduction with that number.

Note: Each point of Hard MDEF also provides 1% resistance to Frozen and Stone Curse statuses.

HIT

Hit rate: The accuracy rating, which is calculated as 175 + BaseLv + DEX + Floor(LUK รท 3) + Bonus.

  • The chance to land a hit is calculated as [AttackerHit - DefenderFlee]%.

  • When dealing with the monsters, the chance is calculated as [100 + PlayerHit - HitRequiredFor100%]%.

  • HitRequiredFor100% is the value from the monster's table which shows the player's Hit rate required for making 100% chance of landing hits against monster. This value is calculated as 200 + Level + AGI.

Note: The chance cannot be below 5%.

CRIT

Critical Hit Rate: The Critical Hit rating, which increases damage by 40%. Offensive skills do not take CRIT into account except for a few exceptions like Focused Arrow Strike. Critical Hit also ignores Flee rate but not Perfect Dodge nor DEF. Critical Hit Rate is doubled when wielding a Katar type weapon (not shown on Status Window). Critical Hit rate is reduced based on the enemy's Critical Hit Shield.

Note: The Crit rate being displayed in the Status Window isn't the true value which is applied against monsters. The "status crit" is calculated by dividing current LUK by 3 and adding the Crit rate bonuses from equips/cards. The real Crit rate is a little different, as LUK ร— 0.3 + Bonus.

  • Critical hit can proc physical autocasts (such as CD in Mouth), so 100+ crit for autocast builds like SC/Sorc is a viable way to make up for a low DEX build.

  • Critical damage always goes with the highest weapon level variance. Weapons under the safe refine level will always have the same exact damage. Refinement bonus variance, on the other hand, will vary.

  • Critical damage modifiers like Aunoe Card/Temporal Luk Boots goes right after the original critical damage, it goes like Final Critical Damage = Highest Weapon Level Variance Damage ร— 1.4 ร— Critical Damage Modifier % Ex: your critical damage goes for 500 with a clean Faceworm Queen Leg [2], if you put 2 Aunoe Cards inside it, your critical damage will be 700.

FLEE

Flee (or Flee rate) is a character's ability to avoid being hit by regular attacks and most melee skills. The more Flee a character has, the less likely they will be hit by an attack. Generally considered to be the counterpart to DEF/VIT. Flee does not affect being hit with some magic attacks and some skills. Flee is determined by Base Level, AGI, LUK, some skills and some items or cards.

Being attacked by more than two monsters decreases Flee by 10% per every additional monster. This reduction is counted before adding Flee from Skills that directly add Flee (ie. Thief's Improve Dodge). This means that if a character is attacked by 4 monsters and his/her Flee is 250, his/her Actual Flee would be 200 assuming that there is no Flee from any skills directly. This also means that if the character is attacked by more than 11 monsters at the same time, they will always land every hit regardless of the character's Flee.

Flee rate: The dodge rating. It is shown as A + B in the Status Window, where A is calculated as 100 + BaseLv + AGI + Floor(LUK รท 5) + Bonus and B represents the Perfect Dodge, which is a direct percentage of dodging any regular hit, including Critical Hits.

  • The chance to dodge a hit is calculated as [100 โˆ’ (AttackerHit โˆ’ DefenderFlee)]%.

  • When dealing with monsters, the chance is calculated as [95 + PlayerFlee - FleeRequiredFor100%]%.

    • FleeRequiredFor100% is the value from the monster's table which shows the player's Flee rate required for making 95% chance of dodging the monster's attacks. This value is calculated as 170 + Level + DEX.

Note: The chance cannot be above 95%. Also, there is a huge penalty to Flee rate when attacked by over enemies at same time.

ASPD

Attack Speed is abbreviated as ASPD. It depends on the player's class, equipped Weapon Type, Speed Modifiers, AGI and DEX.

Factors affecting Attack Speed

  • The player's class.

  • The player's weapon type.

  • Increasing AGI to gain higher Attack Speed. (DEX provides negligible Attack Speed increases)

  • Wearing a shield decreases Attack Speed. The difference varies by class and is more dramatic at higher base Attack Speeds.

  • Some items, skills and equipment can either increase or decrease Attack Speed.

Attack Speed: The hit/second rating. It depends on the player's class, equipped Weapon Type, Speed Modifiers, AGI and DEX. ASPD increases hits/second exponentially. It has a limit of 190 for non-3rd classes and 193 for 3rd classes.

HP

Hit Points or Health Points. It is how much life points the character has or the amount of damage the character can sustain before dying. Max HP is mainly derived from the class of the character, VIT and any equipment that may affect HP.

SP

Spell Points, Spell Power or even Mana. It is how much mental points the character has for performing skills. Max SP is mainly derived from the class of the character, INT and any equipment that may affect SP.

Elements

Elements are properties that can strengthen, weaken, or nullify attacks when they interact. Every player and monster in the game has an element and, with the exception of the Neutral element, every element has both strengths and weaknesses to other elements. The term "element" is often used interchangeably with "property" and "attribute".

Note: Physical attacks from monsters are always Neutral element.

There are 10 known elements on Ragnarok Online:

โ€ข Neutral โ€ข Water โ€ข Earth โ€ข Fire โ€ข Wind

โ€ข Undead โ€ข Ghost โ€ข Shadow โ€ข Holy โ€ข Poison

Elements can be grouped into two types: attacking and defending. Defending elements are separated into four levels(1 - 4); their resistance and weakness are amplified relative to its level. Attacking elements are always level 1.
