Neverwinter Ability Scores Combinations List

Neverwinter Ability Scores Combinations List by derangedhero

As no doubt many people have already noticed, the ability scores we roll (and re-roll, and re-roll… ) on character creation are actually drawn from a list of possible combinations, rather than individually randomized.

I took some free time at the end of the second beta weekend to exhaustively test this system, and figure out what’s in that list.

And this is what I discovered:

Aside from the primary and secondary ability scores, each class also has something like an order of importance for the remaining three stats (affectionately labelled A, B, and C).

The primary ability score is always the highest, and the secondary ability scores can safely be swapped with each other. The remaining three, however, only take the combinations shown in this table:

PrimarySecondaryABC
18131310108
18131310810
18131381010
171413101010
171313111110
171313111011
161612101010
16151311119
161414111010
151513121110
151513111012
151413121211

And here’s a list of which stats A, B, and C are, according to class:

ClassPrimarySecondaryABC
Guardian FighterConStr/DexWisIntCha
Trickster RogueDexStr/ChaIntConWis
Devoted ClericWisStr/ChaIntConDex
Control WizardIntWis/ChaDexConStr
Great Weapon FighterStrCon/DexIntChaWis

So, now that you know all the possible ability score combinations, you can pick the one you like best, and click “reroll” until you get the one you want!

Notes:
The numbers shown in the table above are before any racial +2 bonuses.
