The OFFICIAL Guide to AO (Part One)

Part 1: Stats
The World of
Magic Arcane Online has four main stats, which can be assigned in your skill menu. These stats can do a wide range of things and you get 4 per level up. It is important to choose where you asskgn your points because they are key to AO’s classes (More on this later).
Strength is the first stat in Arcane Online, and is widely considered to be the strongest. Strength affects your melee damage, ranged damage and emotional damage. Strength allows you to uze larger weapons, or foregoing weapons entirely, master complex fighting styles. Like punching style, water punching style and hey isn’t this one from one piece? A higher Strength score will grant you increased door kicking abilities and your clicks will be more powerful in the menu.
Magic In this world of magic-al beasts, give em a taste of their own medicine with the magic skill! The magic stat dictates the player’s magic damage, mana and allows them to use more complex magical spells and decreases their likability. A good mage knows that pumping their magic stat is key for unleashing elemental destruction.
Vitality The Vitality stat makes you tankier, and not much else really. Increasing the vitality stat will actually help with your natural regenerative powers, unlike those weird Facebook ads. Players with lots of vitality are both scared of dying and somehow also huge masochist.
Is this really a stat? This just seems lazy we already have strength what more do you need?? The weapons skill allows you to use more complex weapons with their own fighting styles. Also less complex weapons like hammers, also with fighting styles now included! Weaponmasters study the blade, and the bow, and the cudgel and every other weird niche weapon.
