Hey guys. So, dex or def?
I was wandering about those 2. I also heard there were other unknown "specials associated to them"
Bogie, if you are out there, confirm this please
Others, choose 1 and post why you would choose that option.
Thanks, Realism

P.s didn't want to write dexter but rather dexterity full but i clicked enter on my iPad by mistake and couldn't change it after

Personally I've always favoured defence purely because it's far more satisfying to be hit for 0 than to be missed. My defence is 300x higher than my dexterity.

Defence is much more effective in battle attacks than dexterity, although some argue dexterity is more effective in defends. Defence has always seemed to scale better for me. Although with the new attack system coming in however many months this could all change, it may be best to maintain a balance until then.

Unknown specials, yes. Higher dexterity makes it easier to bust out of jail, stealth attacks and see stealthed opponents. Higher defence decreases your hospital time. All of these abilities seem to be marginal.

I prefer dexterity as my 3rd stat. Defense is nice, but I don't seem to need it during most battles. Here's how I rationalize it:

1) Strength is necessary to be able to land decent damage.
2) Speed is necessary to be able to land a hit with that strength.
3) Dexterity helps you evade the attacks of others nullifying any strength advantage they have.
4) Defense helps you sponge the attacks of others, but if you're fast enough to evade then why bother?

Right now defense makes up around 5% of my total stats, and probably will stay that way for quite awhile.

I was told that defence is better for attacking, dexterity is better for defend. So worth having both.

As a general rule yes, but I would advise you to train the stat that gives the best gains from the gym, whichever that stat might be.

My defense is a tad bit more. I can say its at least double of my dex.

Not directly. But busting helps with it which is improved by dexterity.

Although you don't need a lot of dex to be really good at busting, you don't even need to have hundreds of thousands for that though, 10s of thousands would suffice realistically.

during battle i have hit people with 5 times or more dexterity than my speed...
so i personally wont train dexterity ever while defence will work in every condition..
u can rely on defence but not on dexterity..

So far I have never trained defence,I think this is only because when I used to play defence didn't even work.

I like them both. But I'm training my dex right now to help with busting. But I plan on switching to defense to be balanced.

Dexterity is better to have

An average player will have strength as his main/highest stats
and speed compared to strength will be significantly lower

so to beat that player you need very high defence (counter his high strength)
or
decent dex (to counter his speed nullifying his strength too)

if you do get defence you will have to get it very high for it be usefull

hence i have
Defense: 20,392.8645

But i am saving army points for defence mainly for the 1m stats merit

perhaps it is hard to hit a dexwhore (sometimes)... but then again if you have the def they won't hurt you that bad
