Uses of stats?

#1

Sorry, im a bit new to the game (but i have been learnng it quickly) but one thing that puzzles me is how all the stats work. unless im mistaken, which i probably am, some stats dont really have an intended purpose.
Strength and Intellect are obvious, as i read earlier, with one boosting physical damage and the other boosting spells. They also effect things in the world, naturally.
Vitality is HP, and Willpower is ‘final damage’ as well as resisting things like the banquet table.
but Dexterity and Agility elude me. I read that Dexterity boosts bows, but they are so hard to come by in the first place it seems almost unnecessary. and Agility? i assume attack priority, but thats up for debate.

can someone explain in-depth?

Big thanks for sending me this. it was a bit confusing but it makes sense!
because i didnt know how they worked (and the sheer need for them at that point) I ended up investing most of my characters almost completely into either Strength or Intellect, Vitality, and Willpower.
