Question What are the best stats for a Scout to have?

I'm a level 9 Scout and right now all of my stats are in the high 50's to low 60's and yet I keep getting level 6 and 7 people kicking my butt. What should I do differently? Is there one stat that I should concentrate on increasing?

Your main stat - dex for attack/evade
Your constitution - increased HP
Your luck - increase chance of critical hit

Then you can ignore strength and intelligence.

Dex does NOT effect a Scout's Evade ability. Level does not effect the ability either, once you hit level 10. It is 50% from level 10+. Below level 10, I'm not sure what the rate is.

Dex will increase your damage and your defense against other scouts though, so it serves a dual purpose.
Con will give you health, so you can try to last long enough to kill those mages you come across, but those fights are often a matter of whom hits harder.
Luck will give you an increased chance for a critical hit, but remember that it is only a chance and not a promise.

you actually need str to help with warriors not hitting as much and int for mages not hitting that much on you because you can't evade mages attacks,But dex for Better dmg,con for more hp(Warriors gain con each lvl)and Luck for chance of crit which is good

Im a lvl 21 scout and to be honest, i put a little into everything. Mainly for every 3 points into dex and const i put 1 point into everything else... It really does help so you don't take too much damage from mages and warriors. Lot's of HP and your chance to evade really helps you stay in the battle and hopefully win! Hope that helps!

I keep my base dex and con equal. I keep my base luck about 80% and my base str/int about 50% of my dex. Contrary to what some people say, luck is a great stat to have and you'll notice some epics give nothing but a huge boost to it. Critical hits mean double damage.

For this reason, don't put too much effort in leveling Luck. Right now, I have two epics that are boosting me up to 40% Critical Hit chance. At higher levels, you will be receiving items that can greatly increase your Luck.

Warrior's perspective:

I hate scouts with high HP because that means a longer battle. A longer battle means even if the scout isn't totally raping me with lucky evades, I have to land more hits with my paltry warrior damage, which is unreliable in critting. TBH, I don't even look at scout damage because 50% armor mitigation, 25% block mitigation, and relatively high Dex (don't skimp too much on defense stats, they make a difference eventually) means that it won't hurt very hard anyway. It's a matter of countdown for the scout, but a matter of luck for the warrior. If I can only kill a scout in even rounds, what is the likelihood they won't evade just one of those rounds to edge me out? I'm sure dex is important, but Con scares the bejeezis out of me.

Also, I believe that a high con scout essentially exploits the warrior's advantage against the mage, and with higher damage than warriors, this means a better chance to beat mages.
