I really like all the new additions.
What kind of fighting styles do you recommend? for someone who is just starting out?
I was going to ask you to add more healers but you did it before i could ask you hahaha
I don't know what you mean by fighting style. I have an entire thread on Battledome Tutoring.
So I recommend you starting off there if you are new to the Battledome.
Also... i was wondering what are my pets attributes for?
like if i buy the Sword of Reif wouldnt it still do the same amount of damage now
then say if i were to train my pet to have strength of 100+?
No not at all. Read the TDN - Battledome Strength and Defense Boost Guide to further your understanding of how it works.
So what is the point of strength?
To make your pet stronger. Again please review the TDN - Battledome Articles if you are serious about getting into the Battledome.
Agility makes it so people miss more often when they try and hit you right?
and HP is obvious...
Agility doesn't do anything. If you read the guides I have clearly linked several times then you will see clearly that the only thing agility does in the Battledome is help you meet certain requirements for several Battledome items, such as the Heavy Robe of Thievery.
so what do the other ones do for you in the battle dome?
The only other stats are Intelligence and Defense.
Intelligence again is really only good for a few items in the Battledome like the Heavy Blue Tunic. Other than that there isn't much that Intelligence is going to do to help you in the Battledome.
Defense, based on Defense Boosts, will reduce the amount of damage you take from your opponents attacks leaving you with more HP after getting hit.
