  • Luck (LCK) – This is one of the most helpful Stats in GoW Ragnarok. This is because an increase in Luck Stat will increase the chances of receiving more quality loot from the chests and enemy drops.
  • Cooldown (CLD) – This Stat is responsible for the duration of your Cooldown period while using special abilities. Upgrading this Stat will reduce the Cooldown period making Kratos use his abilities more often during combat.
