Best Stats to Level Up in Another Crab’s Treasure

The best stats I’d recommend increasing early in Another Crab’s Treasure are ATK with a little bit of VIT. This is because ATK will boost your physical strikes with the fork. Basic attacks are a crucial damage source in the early game to have a drastically easier time with bosses like the Royal Shellsplitter. I would personally get it to 5 ASAP.

Furthermore, around 3 points in VIT with the VIT stowaway will ensure you have plenty of room for error as you get used to the game’s combat system. Higher HP is quite beneficial because your shell will drastically reduce the damage you take. The more HP you have, the more value you get out of the damage reduction. That said, I wouldn’t recommend raising RES much in the early game because you’ll be constantly switching shells. A brand-new shell instantly restores your shield meter, so a few RES stat increases aren’t impactful.

Lastly, MSG for Umami attacks isn’t usable until you unlock them in the Mooncave. Focus on ATK and VIT first. Once you unlock Umami attacks, a few points in MSG will make your shell special attacks much more useful.

Once the early game comes to a close, you’ll start noticing more and more stowaways with stat requirements. For example, the Whelk boosts spell damage but requires 2 RES. This means you should level up stats that fill your desired stowaways.

Another Crab’s Treasure Stats Explained

Here’s the full breakdown of all stats in Another Crab’s Treasure:

  • ATK: Each point in ATK will increase the damage you do with physical strikes by 7%.
  • VIT: Each point in VIT increases your HP by 5.
  • RES: Each point in RES reduces the damage your shell takes by a flat number, which is 1. Affliction also builds 3% slower for each RES point.
  • MSG: Each point in MSG increases the damage of your Umami shell attacks by 7%.
  • DEF: You cannot level up DEF, but each point in DEF reduces the damage you take by 1%.

While the first four stats can be leveled up, DEF can only be increased through shells and stowaways. Lastly, I highly recommend leveling up specific stats that your desired stowaway requires so that you can equip it.
