Characters have 5 basic stats (strength, stamina, energy, agility, and intellect) and 33 secondary parameters (for example, chance to inflict critical damage, chance to dodge enemy attacks, resistance to physical damage). Gear can provide bonuses to any stats and parameters. Selected and well-directed gear improvement along with the opportunity to change secondary parameters ensure you can fine-tune your character. Revelation Online offers flexibility in that the resources needed to boost gear can be obtained in different ways — in dungeons or in the open world, through completing quests or by buying with reputation or currency.
Some secondary parameters are revealed on gear under certain circumstances: for example, additional damage from different elements is unlocked when an item is awakened. And only precious stones get parameters such as additional damage and resistance to damage in PvE and PvP.
