Traits go hand in hand with professions, since three of them are directly linked with progression made in crafting skills.

  • Diligence increases as you craft (create something through Accessory Crafting, Alchemy, or Smithing) or as you smelt ores/ turn seeds into oils. Leveling up Diligence increases your chances of having bonuses when using scrolls as well as receiving double craft mastery when you craft at a chance (excluding Level 10, Master Craftsman and Meister level mastery).
  • Insight increases as you mine. Leveling up Insight increases your ignore monsters' Elemental Resistance rate (such as Physical resistance, Ice resistance, etc.), as well as letting you reveal equipment of higher levels for free.
  • Empathy increases as you dig up herbs. Leveling up Empathy increases your max MP and duration of buffs.
  • Charm gained by getting increased fame level or wearing special items or cash items. Also obtained through hair changing. Gives you pocket slot at level 30 and new facial expressions every 5 levels thereafter.
  • Ambition increases by killing boss monsters. Reduces EXP death loss and ignores a percentage of defense.
  • Willpower increases as you clear PQs. You also gain willpower by staying online. Your HP and DEF increases and your abnormal status resistance (stun, seal, weaken, slow, seduce, etc) increases, reducing duration of abnormal statuses.
