How Are Attributes Different In Wasteland 3?
There are some changes made to Wasteland 3’s attributes system. For example, Coordination will now affect your crit resistance. Thanks to the arrival of Lucky Effects your Luck attribute will work pretty much the same way, however, it is now independent of other crit chance effects.
Your Charisma will now affect how fast the Precision Strike gauge is filled. Intelligence saw the biggest changes in Wasteland 3. This attribute now decides crit chance and damage. Speed doesn’t affect Action Points anymore, the same is the case with Strength. Last but not least, Awareness doesn’t affect Combat Initiative, Action Points, or melee crit chance.
