To upgrade your attributes, you need Attribute Points. These allow you to upgrade any attribute of your choice and make your character stronger. There are two different ways you can earn Attribute points in Dungeons and Dragons Dark Alliance. The most obvious way is to level up. So, as you go through the course of the game and kill enemies, you gain XP points.
With enough XP, you level up, and for each level you get 1 Attribute Point. With this, your character will also get a single Feat Point every level, allowing you to level up your feats as well.
As for the second way, you can find Attribute Shrines in each stage. These shrine-like structures can be found in the game by exploring the stage. These provide you a free Attribute Point. Some of these are blocked behind different puzzles and challenges.
Since every stage has an Attribute Shrine, you can get additional 21 Attributes Points other than the ones you earn when your character levels up. So, this allows you increase your abilities very fast and choose your play style early on.
