Stats in Vampyr are covered on this page. You don’t have a complicated character stat sheet you have to micromanage. You will have your skill trees and abilities to combine with your stats, which do have impact. For example to break someone’s will you have to have your mesmerising ability high enough to get some leverage in that force of will. There will be some check of this nature in the game. This page will be updated when more specifics on the stats are known.
