      do you want to hear something really funny? In the spanish translation, 'Vigor' is translated for the spanish word 'vitalidad' and 'vitality' is translated to spanish as 'vigor'

      WHY? WHY???

        there is a bug with Rosario which lets you set a stat to 0 points. not sure if doing so will get you soft-banned or not though. it seems to happen randomly as well

            After the new updates, they should really buff vitality and vigor. Or at least in arenas give them extra health. I hate how battles are so fast.

              When comparing a.) the defense you see when reallocating attributes versus b.) the defense you see in the game menu, how do they differ? What are their respective effects on the character? If it's the obvious choice that they affect identical stats and in-game character abilities, then why do these two variations of the same data display different numbers? Thanks!

                    Reducing stats22 Sep 2016 16:53  

                    Is there any way of reducing stats? I tried at Rosaria, but it would only allow you to reallocate specs, and not reduce.

                      I remember in ds2 that attunement aided casting speed is the same true in ds3. Any idea if this can be increased?

                        Is it possible through glitching or strategy to get any skill permanently above 99?

                          Max level & level cap Also possible glitches10 Jul 2016 09:07  

                          Max level is 89= 99 stats/attribute x 9 attributes it might be feasible to break this level cap if you reached level 891 and then took the 5 levels of hollowing

                            I think they should change some things.25 Jun 2016 01:23  

                            I'd like to know if you agree with me or not in this issue, but shouldn't FP and att. slots also be influenced by int? If only by a really small ammount? It certainly would make mages more viable, even in the first 2 games mages would get rekt if you ever went up close to them, but specially in this game they seem lackluster.
