Abbreviation: DEX

A stat that is compared with an enemy's agility to determine the likelihood that a character's blow will be a critical.

  • The higher an attacker's DEX, the greater their Critical Hit Rate against an opponent is.

Dexterity also has a direct impact on a character's accuracy stat. For every two points of DEX a character has, his/her accuracy is raised by one point. However, when using a Two-Handed Weapon, for every 4 points of DEX, your accuracy value is raised by 3. (as of the November '07 Update).

Dexterity also plays a significant role in determining the damage caused by Sneak Attack when used by a Thief.

Associated with the element of Lightning. Many thunder-based items add DEX to a Player's Stats. Example: Ramuh's Staff, Thunder Staff, Jupiter's Staff and Byakko's Haidate.
