PCB Ninja: what does Dex do?

I know it's important. Probably affects stealth, weapon accuracy. Maybe chance or quality of crits, generic backstabs, and/or assassin backstabs?

If anybody's dug through the code, I'd appreciate anything you can offer up. If you can point me to the file I might even be able to dig myself!

Not a coder, but have been playing a lot of Ninjas and wonder if Dex might apply more to lighter weapons like those a Ninja favors. It is hard tracking sometimes if adding Dex increases damage directly or simply by increasing blows per round, but adding Dex definitely does increase damage.

Fairly certain the major part is blows per round. Not directly affecting damage, though stealth does. Also doubt it affects stealth.

It also determines fail rate for ninja abilities.

Ultimately, unless you play a challenge combo, dex should *** almost naturally, though. At times I was at 9+ above that with my ninja.
