Wazhack uses stats as units of measure to indicate how skilled a character is at combat and other activities in the game. During character creation, clicking on the stats list will allow the player to assign stats manually.

View a Table of Stats and Skills .

StatsEdit

Strength - Melee damage, melee hit chance, maximum carry weight before becoming burdened, maximum throwing distance

Dexterity - Hit chance (accuracy)

Constitution - HP regeneration speed, hunger increase rate, maximum carry weight before becoming burdened

Intelligence - chance to memorize a spell, time required to memorize spells, increases spell casting success rate

Wisdom - Mana regeneration rate, mana gain on level up, time required to memorize spells, time until spells are forgotten

Charisma - Vendor buy/sell prices, duration of control over summoned creatures

NotesEdit

All classes are subject to requirements for each stat. To see these limits, review the Table of Stats and Skills.

TipsEdit

When creating a new character and considering stats it is recommended to match the strengths of the class. Ex: Knight needs strength more than intelligence, reverse for sorcerer.

Assigning stats manually allows the player to create characters with stats that allow them better access to skills they are not normally specialized in. Ex: A spellcasting knight may be created by adding points to Intelligence and Wisdom.

Modifying StatsEdit

Stats may be modified by the following methods:

Unverified InformationEdit

The following information has been documented but needs further evidence:

  • Constitution increases amount of HP and HP gain upon level up/quaffing potions of healing
  • Charisma influences number of vendors found in the dungeon, influences critical hit chance, chance to dodge and chance of finding rare loot (e.g. most important stat)

SkillsEdit

Skills are a measure of how proficient a character is with the various weapon and magic varieties in the game.

Weapon skills have six levels of proficiency, and each character begins with a number of skills at level 1, and the rest at level 0. Magic skills also have 6 levels of proficiency; only some classes start with magical skill levels beyond 0.

Successfully performing magic and attacking with weapons (must cause damage) increases your skill in the weapon or magic type the spell or weapon belongs to. This will not benefit the character until he/she achieves enough points to level up the skill type. When enough points are gained in a skill type the player may choose to increase the character's level in that skill type.

Magic skills come with a special caveat. The opposites (life-death and light-dark) cannot be fully mastered. If you master light magic, then you cannot master dark magic, and the same applies to life-death magic.

Zapping(using wands) will increase magic proficiency (less than casting spells), but storing and using spells from a staff will not.

Magic Skill TypesEdit

  • Life & Death (opposed)
  • Light & Dark (opposed)

Weapon Skill TypesEdit

  • Knives
  • Swords
  • Greatswords
  • Backswords
  • Axes
  • Clubs
  • Polearms
  • Bows
  • Throwing

NotesEdit

Magic skills will seem to progress faster than weapons. This is due to the fact that magic skills progress each time a spell is cast, regardless of whether it affects the intended target (for example, a missed Magic Missile counts; failed casts due to spellcasting penalties/low Intelligence do not count). Weapon skills, however, require a hit with the weapon to give a skill increase. The notable exception is bows, which give skill increases every time an arrow if fired, regardless of whether it hits its intended target.

Alignment Edit

Alignment affects both the probability of finding spellbooks from specific schools and the religious beliefs of the player character.

Effects of alignment on spellbook generation in the dungeon (+ means more spellbooks, - means fewer spellbooks):

Light Dark Life Death
Lawful Good + -
Chaotic Good + -
Neutral
Lawful Evil - +
Chaotic Evil - +

(Source: Wazhack.com multiplayer page)

For information about player character religion and beliefs, see the Table of Religious Beliefs by Class/Alignment.

Speculation on Alignments Edit

Avoiding unlawful/evil acts such as stealing from shops or murdering your pet/NPC's is believed to move the character toward the lawful alignment. (False, no mechanic currently exists for changing alignment of the player character (build 1.34).

Alignments may have an effect on which artifacts are found. (confirmation needed)
