Agility Icon MW
For other uses, see Agility.

Agility is a primary attribute that affects one's ability to perform a number of tasks and impacts several skills. During combat increased Agility improves one's chance of dodging an enemy's attack, landing a hit with a weapon, blocking if equipped with a shield, and increases resistance to staggering. Outside of combat it contributes to movement speed, jumping, climbing steep slopes, sneaking, disarming traps and lockpicking. It is also one of four factors in determining maximum Fatigue.
