All kung fu styles have primary and secondary attributes. These are used for attack, damage and additional effects. This is determined by the character that learns the style and the manner their master taught them. The attributes are chosen at first level and will be used for all kung fu powers from that point on. This choice is permanent and may not be changed.

  • Champions are most likely to use Dexterity as their primary attribute and Strength or Intelligence as their Secondary attribute
  • Guardians are most likely to use Strength as their primary attribute and Constitution or Dexterity as their Secondary Attribute
  • There is no restriction on the use of an attribute, it does not need to be the same attribute used by your class.
