What Is Attack Power?

Weapon's Stat That Determines Damage

Weapon

A weapon's attack power stat determines the overall damage of your weapon. The attack power changes depending on the weapon, its rarity & type.

Higher Attack Power Increases Weapon's Offensive Power

The higher the attack power is, the higher the damage you can cause on a monster. Do note however that even with a high attack power, your overall damage per second can still be affected by the weapon type.
