ASPD formula:

ASPD is Attack Speed. 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 ASPD or 5 hits per second.

DEF & MDEF & FLEE & Pdodge :


DEF: (32 hard-def / 7 soft-def in the screen)

For armors refine give 0.7 def per every upgrade level.

  • Hard defense reduces 1% for each point (so 32% reduction in physical damage).
  • Soft defense reduces damage by subtraction (so, -7 from the physical damage received, which is insignificant against solid monsters, but can be useful for tanking Lunatic or poporing).

MDEF: (4 hard-def / 7 soft-def in the screen)

  • The same principle applies to MDEF but to reduc magic damage.
  • Each point of hard MDEF also provides 1% resistance to Frozen and Stone Curse statuses.
  • Each point of hard MDEF also provides ? % duration to Frozen and Stone Curse statuses

FLEE: (200 flee / 1 Pdodge in the screen )

Dodge Rate(%) = 100% - (Attacker Hit + 80 - Defenders Flee) ("Attackers Hit" also applies for monsters as (Baselevel + DEX))

Full formula for calculating your Actual Flee is:

Actual Flee = Skill Bonus + [Level + AGI + Item Bonus] * [1 - ((Mobs -2) * 0.1)]

You cannot have more than 95% dodge rate against anything in the game, however this does not ring true inside WoE/Battleground Maps, as players can have 100% dodge rate in these maps.

PDODGE: (200 flee / 1 Pdodge in the screen)

Every character starts with a value of 1.

10 luk increases your Perfect Dodge by 1.

  • Perfect Dodge allows the player to dodge a physical attack by a chance in % corresponding to the Perfect Dodge value.
  • It is calculated before flee
  • Flee therefore triggers after the fact that a player lucky dodged something or not, thus giving him even more chance to flee a monster. This part of the flee is reduced by the mob effect.
  • It does not work against skill attacks, traps, or magic.
  • This overrides (potential) critical hits.
  • Pdodge triggers before the count of hits from a Safety Wall.



Your physical-oriented attack rating for both ranged and melee weapons

There's atk 1 (100 on the screen) and atk 2 (40 on the screen).

Atk 1 represents the weapon's DMG + STR / DEX / LUK,

Atk 2 is the damage gained from weapon refinement upgrades.

(about atk2 : 40 means I will inflict an additional 40 damage with my skills / regular attacks. Certain skills like Sonic Blow or Bowling Bash / Double Strafing benefit from this bonus multiple times depending on the number of hits of the skill. Generally, weapon refinement is useless, purely bling-bling in 99% of cases, however when you are at a very low level, dealing 80 more damage with your Double Strafing can make a difference in one-shotting a monster.)


The Minimum MATK is the first number given in the stats window (518).

The Maximum MATK is the second number (864).

It represents your potential damage range with your magic skills (the reason for randomness in magic damage).

Note: Minimum MATK increases every 7 INT points, and Maximum MATK increases every 5 INT points.


  • Your critical hit rating, which does damage that fully ignores enemy DEF, both % and pure value part. Because of difficulty of acquiring CRIT without sacrificing lots of other stats or useful cards/gears, it is recommended it is used on classes that naturally has fast ASPD one way or another. Offensive Skills do not take CRIT into account with the exception of Focused Arrow Strike.
  • Critical Hit also ignore FLEE but not PERFECT DODGE.
  • When you attack a monster or a player, the target's LUK influences your critical hit rate. Every 5 LUK that the target has, you lose 1% crit (Which isn't shown in the status window). For example if you hit Angeling, that has 100 LUK, you'll lose 100/5 = 20 crit.


  • For armors, it reduces damage you take by 0.7% per every upgrade level.
  • For weapon, it reduces damage range between min - max damage (allowing you to do better average damage), it also increases your damage range.


Weapon Lv. 1 - Every +1 upgrade gives +2 ATK (+3 ATK for every overupgrade).

Weapon Lv. 2 - Every +1 upgrade gives +3 ATK (+5 ATK for every overupgrade).

Weapon Lv. 3 - Every +1 upgrade gives +5 ATK (+7 ATK for every overupgrade).

Weapon Lv. 4 - Every +1 upgrade gives +7 ATK (+13 ATK for every overupgrade).

The Mastersmith skill Upgrade Weapon will increase self-weapon refining chance by 0.5% per job level after job 50.

At job 70 the smith has a +10% (FLAT) better chance to successfully refine a weapon than an upgrade NPC does

There is no other way to increase the chances of refining on Dayone (no enriched Elunium/Oridecon, HD Elunium/Oridecon, or any other custom)
