Conan Exiles: The Frozen North – What Stats Do (Grit, Encumbrance, Survival, etc.)

Conan Exiles: The Frozen North has a total of seven stats that you'll be able to earn through gear. These stats have a variety of effects that have an impact on your effectiveness.

Below is what all the stats do:

  • Strength: Increases melee damage
  • Agility: Increases defense
  • Vitality: Increases health
  • Accuracy: Increases ranged damage
  • Grit: Increases stamina
  • Encumbrance: Increases weight
  • Survival: Increases maximum water and food

It is recommended that you specialize in either Strength or Accuracy. From there, a few points in Vitality and Grit before investing heavily in Agility is a good idea to maximize your sustainability.

Encumbrance and Survival are often referred to as low priority stats, although you can consider them if Weight, Water, or Food ever poses a problem. However, these stats don't scale as well as the others.
