Basic Info

There are four battle stats in Torn. Each have different effects in combat.

Strength

  • Increases the damage you deal each hit.

Defense

  • Reduces the damage you take per hit.

Speed

  • Increases the chance of hitting your opponent.
  • Decreases your opponents chance of stealthing an attack.
  • Decreases your opponents chance of escaping from you.

Dexterity

  • Increases your chance of dodging an attack.
  • Increases your chance of stealthing an attack.
  • Increases your chance of escaping from an opponent.

Each of the four battle stats grow exponentially until the soft cap of 50 million, also known as the "stat cap" after which they grow at a relatively fixed rate.

The primary method of raising your battles stats is by training with Energy in the Gym.

Training Formulas

Variables that affect stat growth:

  • Happiness
  • Gym (Gym Dots)
  • Energy
  • Faction Upgrades
  • Education
  • Company Specials

Formula

Currently the most accurate formula to predict your gym gains is:

(Modifiers)*(Gym Dots)*(Energy Per Train)*[ (a*ln(Happy+b)+c) * (Stat Total) + d*(Happy+b) + e ]

Where a,b,c & d are constants, estimated values below:

  • a = 3.480061091 x 10^-7
  • b = 250
  • c = 3.091619094 x 10^-6
  • d = 6.82775184551527 x 10^-5
  • e = -0.0301431777

Historical Note

When the cap on happiness was raised to 99,999 the formula changed entirely, this was the most accurate formula in the old system.

The most accurate formula at the moment, according to Darkkk's Guide is:

((Gym Dots * 4) * ((0.00019106 * Stat) + (0.00226263 * Happy) + 0.55)) * (1 + Steadfast + Education Bonus) / 150 * Energy Used

**with the 0.006% - 0.169% margin of error.**
