A new Final Fantasy XIV (FFXIV) attribute points guide has just been released by OsirisMethod.com. This new guide covers all aspects of attributes in Final Fantasy XIV, covering everything from the best primary attributes to discussing the accuracy cap. The new guide can be found in full at http://www.osirismethod.com/the-ultimate-guide-to-attribute-points-in-final-fantasy-xiv/.
In FFXIV, the strength of a player's character is determined by its attribute points (also known as stat points). There are many different types of stats that players must choose between, so selecting the optimal combination of equipment, manual point allotment, and weaponry can be a daunting task for players. The new guide at OsirisMethod.com provides detailed comparisons between these options so that players will know exactly which stat points to focus on improving.
According to the new guide, weapon damage is generally the most important stat in Final Fantasy XIV. While there is nothing on the screen to indicate that this is the case, extensive testing has shown the vast superiority of a single point or two of weapon damage versus all other stats. The only classes which does not benefit massively from weapon damage are Warriors and Paladins. While these two classes do have their damage improved notably from these stats, the most important stat for a tank is Vitality as extra health will help these characters survive better. The extra damage improves threat generation but it is survivability rather than threat that is the limiting factor for most tanks.
While is it clear that weapon damage is important, many players get confused when choosing between secondary stats and primary stats. Testing and evaluation as discussed in the new guide have revealed that primary stats are vastly superior to secondary stats. As an example, a few points of Dexterity will do more for the Bard class than 15 points of critical hit rating. Players will always do well by focusing on these primary stat points rather than worrying about secondary stat points. After maximizing their secondary stat points, the new guide states that players should focus on accuracy. Beyond accuracy, the best stat points for each class tend to vary from class to class. The new guide includes many examples so players can best decide how to equip their character and allot their attribute points to achieve the best possible result.
