It is a useful stat if:
- You want to be more likely to hit enemies with your spells and physical attacks, especially if they are higher level than you (such as dungeon end bosses), or if you are afflicted by spells that reduce your accuracy. Missed spells and abilities greatly reduce the amount of damage you deal, so it is a good idea to have a bit of dexterity to avoid that. Your hit rating, which is directly affected by your dexterity, is shown in your stats window.
- You use projectiles (such as arrows). Dexterity has a major influence on a hunter's abilities, as most of them are ranged physical attacks.
- You want to reduce the amount of time you take to cast spells, allowing you to use more spells in a certain time span. This lets you do more damage, or cast a life-saving spell sooner.
