<blockquote><hr>DrAtlasX wrote:What reset of character traits?

I haven't seen any choices (where you get the green "+" sign in the corner of your screen) in about 6 levels.So, at some point, the devs are going to reset everyone's choices and you can pick them all again (including the ones you've missed).

<DIV>here is what has been said if you don;t want to use link</DIV> <DIV>__________________________________________________ _____________________</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> <DIV>Just wanted to let folks know that we're aware of the issue of characters not receiving their traits, traditions, and tactics properly. We've got the issue corrected on our development server, but we want to test the system for a while before it goes live.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>When the update goes to the live servers, everyone's trait/tradition/tactics choices will be reset and will need to be made again. This means you will be able to make different choices if you so desire.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Sorry for the inconvenience.</DIV> <P>===========================<BR>Moorgard<BR>EverQuest II Community Guy</P></DIV>

<DIV>Which then brings up the "what do I pick" debate. Seeing how alot of ppl ive spoken too havent seen a trait since lv12....like me. Im going to have zero clue what skill or trait does what. Which are the Triggered or Innate skills....it will for sure be a daunting task. I just hope they decide to put better descriptions as to what each thing does and how it is implemented. Going back to my experiance in beta...the descriptions, well they sucked. Leading me to choose a couple skills that with prior knowledge I would not have chosen.</DIV>

<DIV>if your a Dark Elf don't pick the racial hide.....you have to be stationary (no biggie) 1800 sec refresh...only lasts for 3 MIN...what a waste..</DIV>

<DIV>What I've heard is that Wisdom affects your base resists, while Intelligence determines how much damage you do with offensive spells.  Not sure if that's true, but it would fit the "every stat is useful for everyone" maxim stated by the devs.</DIV>

In order to answer the initial question this is taken from the crusader guideStrength – Strength determines the amount of weight a character can carry and modifies how much damage they do in melee combat.Agility – The higher your character's Agility, the greater their chances to hit an opponent in melee combat and avoid physical attacks.Stamina – Stamina modifies the amount of Health Points a character has. It also affects how much damage an unconscious character can withstand before dying.Intelligence – Intelligence modifies how much damage your character inflicts with magic-based attacks.Wisdom – The higher your character's wisdom, the more successful they will be at both landing and avoiding magic-based attacks.looks like Int affects damage, and wisdom affects whether or not you land. which ones modify resists or power I don't know.
