Attributes are pretty straight forward in Crowfall. Your Primary Attributes in Crowfall are STRENGTH, DEXTERITY, INTELLECT, SPIRIT and CONSTITUTION.

If you are building a character that is focusing on DAMAGE, the secondary stat you want to push as high as possible is ATTACK POWER (AP). For the ASSASSIN Attack Power is increased by DEXTERITY. 1 Attribute Point gives you 2 AP.

Here are the most important secondary stats and by which ATTRIBUTES they are influenced:

STRENGTH: Damage Bonus.

DEXTERITY: Critical Strike Chance, Critical Healing Chance and Physical Resistances (Crushing, Piercing, Slashing) and Bleed Resistances.

INTELLECT: Critical Hit Damage, Critical Heal Amount and Healing Bonus.

SPIRIT: Each Point of Spirit gives you 4 Support Power, which is the primary stat for Healers. It also increases your Elemental Resistances (Electricity, Fire, Ice)

CONSTITUTION: Each point of CON grants you 20 HP. It also influences Organic resistances (Disease, Nature, Poison)

Talents & Skills

Shadow Step (Ultimate)

Shadow Step Blinds enemies around you and let’s you vanish into the Shadows granting you high damage mitigation and CC immunity for 5 seconds and cleanses most negative effects and Dots.
