Skill (Japanese: Skill) is the stat that defines the unit's hit rate and also their critical hit rate. In Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Fire Emblem Awakening, and Fire Emblem Fates it is used to calculate the activation rate of many offensive skills such as Aether or Sol. Items such as the Secret Book increase the unit's skill permanently.

Staff Accuracy

In Thracia 776, skill affects a staff user's hit rate. This applies for all staves, including healing and status staves.
