― In-game description

Agility (AGI) is a trait that is primarily used by Rogues, who benefit from its bonuses to light weapons, armor, and trap and lock handling. Clerics have also been known to pick up a couple points when favoring lighter weapons (and to get the armor and traps and locks bonuses). This trait is also taken by those on Iron Man difficulty to increase survivability.
