Ashen Empires
Orbs & Attributes
Ashen Empires is one of the few role-playing games to give players complete control over their character. You are able to learn any skill or feat that you want. Your proficiency with them only depends on your attributes.

There are four Attributes in Ashen Empires: Strength (STR), Dexterity (DEX), Intelligence (INT), and Constitution (CON). Below is a basic list of the four stats and how they impact your character's abilities.

Attribute Description
Strength To hit damage, carrying capacity
Dexterity Combat/Magic hit accuracy, ability to dodge attacks
Intelligence Magic damage, stamina
Constitution Total hit points, hit point regeneration, stamina regeneration

Leveling your AttributesOrbs
When you create your character and each time you gain a level, you will gain orbs which you can then place in one of the four Attributes. Check the Skill Guide for more detailed info on how many orbs you get at each level and overall.

These attributes also impact your ability to perform both combat and crafting Skills. For instance, strong players will be more apt to fight with melee weapons and find blacksmithing to be easier, dexterous players will excel at fly casting and skinning and ranged weapons, while more intelligent players are better at spell-casting, leadership, and baking.

Bonus Orbs
Bonus orbs are extra orbs that can be a permanent or temporary enhancement to your attributes. You can get bonus orbs from your race, food and drink, totems, spells, and some weapons and armor.

Need help?
The forums are a good place to ask questions about specific builds and orbs. We also have a guide that goes into detailed discussion about orbs and attributes. If you wish to reset your orbs when you have more experience, you may purchase an "Orb Reset" or a "Runeshard" from the store.
