Built-in fighting stats

Every Ape has 4 built-in on-chain stats. Strength, Health, Fail % and Critical %. Together these stats determine overall fighting ability.

All 156 traits influence fighting stats. But which traits are good for fighting?

  • Fur Type is the most influential trait when it comes to fighting. Fur type determines the baseline strength, health, fail % and critical %.

  • Clothing traits add between 6 to 10 strength. Apes with no clothes therefore have considerably lower strength.

  • Hat traits add between 10 to 15 extra health points.

  • Eye traits improve the chance of hitting a critical attack because the Ape has better vision.

  • Mouth traits improve the fail %, making the Ape less likely to miss an attack.

  • Ear traits add 5 health points and improve the fail % and critical % by 1.
