Charisma is a stat that helps determine the effectiveness of:
- It is rumored to affect a number of other Job Abilities and passive "Killer" Job Traits (e.g. Undead Killer).
- Certain Weapon Skills (such as Dancing Edge, Shadowstitch, Primal Rend, and Mordant Rime) and certain Blue Magic (such as Bludgeon and Eyes on Me) are affected by Charisma.
- Reduces Light Maneuver burden if master CHR is higher than automaton CHR.
This stat is associated with the Light element.
