@LawBR said in Hiw often does the Stats Screen update?:
i think in the early stages of the game you shouldnt bother too much with stats, i have more than 150 hours played and my stats are still really low, far from cap, and we have the opportunity to change stats or reset all of them if we mess up. And it may be confusing to begginers that dont even know how the combat system works.
But having more info about it in tutorials/wiki would be nice. There are so good guides here in the forum but i'm dont see much work done in the wiki, most of the content there is very outdated (portuguese and poski have really low amount of content but even the russian and the oficial one in english seens to be abandoned).
Yes I made a small start on tidying up the (English) Wiki, but it is a major undertaking and gameplay seems much more attractive :-( Also if you go beyond just adding text to an existing page, the Wiki site syntax gets challenging, which must put most people off.
Adjusting Stats is interesting. Hidden below my Stats popup, I nearly missed the message above my avatar, saying that one can only reduce one stat at a time.
Stats updating seems so obvious now, As you say there was just so much in the game to take in at the earlier stages. I think I must have been maxed out for ages, I have just passed the 250 hour level.
I still have Intelligence Stats on level five, whilst Perception is well into the level 9. Looks like both would benefit from an increase.
Great. Now I am seeing the instant adjustments bottom right of screen, having opted to reduce Dexterity to increase Perception .. :-)

I note there are scrolls to increase or decrease a stat by one level. Presumably the downward one frees up experience points and the upward one only works, if there are enough free Experience points?
You mention "reset all". Did I read that somewhere way back?? Ah yes, one can obtain scrolls for this and other stats adjustment in the Shop (at quite a low price.)
Reset would have a really long term effect!
