Equipment Load
Equip Load Icon Equipment Load, also known as Equip Load, is a Derived Attribute that determines the player character's movement speed in relation to the total weight of all equipped weapons, armors and rings.

In-game description

Total weight of equipped weapons and armor.
Movement slows as load increases.
Exceed the rightmost number and movement slows dramatically.


Two types of Equipment Load can be distinguished: The current Equipment Load, which is the total weight of all equipped items, and the maximum Equipment Load, which limits how much weight can be equipped.

The ratio of current Equip Load to maximum Equip Load determines the player's movement speed during certain functions:

  • Ninja Backflip - While below 30% Equipment Load:
    • The player does a flip backwards with invincibility frames in the middle of the animation (exact amount undetermined).
  • Backstep:
    • The player steps back with invincibility frames in the middle of the animation (exact amount undetermined).
  • Fast Roll (20 Stamina Constumption) - While below 30% Equipment Load:
    • The player rolls quickly, furthest and gains more invincivility frames than Medium Roll (exact amount undetermined).
  • Medium Roll (25 Stamina Constumption) - Between 30% to 70% Equipment Load:
    • The player rolls a moderate distance. Has Poise while rolling.
  • Fat Roll - (30 Stamina Constumption) Between 70% to 100% Equipment Load:
    • The player rolls slowly and covers a short distance, also suffers -9 to their Stamina Recovery. Has Poise while rolling.
  • Encumbered Roll (40 Stamina Constumption) - Above 100% Equipment Load:

Stamina Constumption for rolls, backsteps and flips is the same for each tier.

While the duration of a dodge roll is not influenced by the Equipment Load, same can not be said about the distance covered by said roll. The lower the Equipment Load, the farther the roll distance, increasing the movement speed.

The maximum Equipment Load can increased by raising the Primary Attribute Vitality. Additionally, the following equipment can be used to further increase the maximum Equipment Load:

Item Name Stat Effect
