Each time your character levels up, you will receive additional attribute points (AP). You may allocate these points across any attributes you choose to customize your character. There are significant bonuses to be earned as you reach various levels of any given attribute. In game, you may hover over any attribute to read more about these bonuses and the perks table below details those.


The maximum AP is earned at level 60. At that point, you will have a total of 390 AP and you will not earn any more thereafter. This is an intentional design feature of the game. You cannot maximize all attributes and instead you will need to find a balance of attributes that serves your play style. In fact, the cost of maximizing any single attribute is dear. It will cost you 275 AP just to max out one attribute, leaving only a few more AP for other attributes.

The cost to improve an attribute increases as you move up the scale, with a higher cost at every fifth level. The first improvement to any attribute level (AV) will cost you one AP. That cost remains for the next four increases. Then the AP cost increases to two for the next five improvements. This pattern continues, adding one more AP cost at each five increments of AV.

You may reset your attribute points at any time by consuming either a Icon yellow lotus potion variant 1.png Potion of Bestial Memory or a Icon yellow lotus potion.png Yellow Lotus Potion. The potion of bestial memory will only reset your attributes, while the yellow lotus potion will reset both attributes and feats.

The cost of increasing AV is illustrated below.
