Character Attributes

Wings, Legs... The main thing is the Tail!

All character's attributes in Guild Wars 2 are divided into main attributes and additional attributes. Main attributes are increased proportionally to the player's level. They also can be enhanced by using Traits and applying upgrades to the armor.

Main Attributes

  • Power - Increases character attack.
  • Precision - Increases critical hit chance.
  • Toughness - Increases character armor.
  • Vitality - Increases character maximum health.

Additional Attributes

Additional attributes can only be increased by spending Trait Points and applying upgrade components to the armor. Additional attributes are divided into three types:

Offensive Attributes

  • Ferocity - Improves the damage multiplier on critical strikes.
  • Malice - Improves the damage done by conditions like burning, poison, confusion, and bleeding.
  • Expertise - Improves the duration of all conditions inflicted by the character.

Supporting Attributes

  • Concentration - Improves the duration of all boons applied by the character.
  • Compassion - Improves all outgoing heals that your character does, including self heals.
