Official Explanation of the Attributes

Cleve's explanation of the attributes in Grimoire:



Attribute Advice

For fighters: SPD/STR/AGI are the most important ones. DEV and/or INT/WIS for more skill points. CON and MET shouldn't be too low. DES is optional.

For spellcasters: SPD is most important. DEV for more mana and INT/WIS for more skill points. According the in-game description, WIL has some effect on spell-casting. CON and MET shouldn't be too low. DES is optional.

The latest experiments show that INT, WIS and WIL have some influence on the success of spell casting, but not too much. The magic skill is the most important part.

Music instruments may be relying on FEL. The diplomat in the party also needs FEL.
