Abbreviation: DEX

A stat that is compared with an enemy's agility to determine the likelihood that a character's blow will be a critical.

Dexterity also has a direct impact on a character's accuracy stat. For every two points of DEX a character has, his/her accuracy is raised by one point. However, when using a Two-Handed Weapon, for every 1 point of DEX, your accuracy value is raised by 1.

Dexterity also plays a significant role in determining the damage caused by Sneak Attack when used by a Thief.

Associated with the element of Lightning. Many thunder-based items add DEX to a Player's Stats. Example: Ramuh's Staff
