For other uses, see Stats (disambiguation).

Stats (statistics) are a gameplay mechanic in Dark Souls III. They are numerical values that determine the physical and mental characteristics of each character.


Attributes are the base stats of a character. They govern several derived stats and determine which weapons and spells the character can use.

A character's initial attributes depend on the starting class selected by the player during character creation. They can be increased by leveling up the character at the Fire Keeper, or by equipping certain items.

Attribute points gained by leveling up can be redistributed by offering a Pale Tongue to Rosaria in the Cathedral of the Deep.
