Rigid self-control over personal actions, impulses and behavior. The ability to focus irrespective of setbacks or adversity.
Willpower is resolute control over one's own actions, impulses, and behavior. It embodies the capability of focusing on the achievement of personal goals, irrespective of setbacks or adversity. In combat, the ability to concentrate on dynamic battlefield conditions and exercise patience when determining the timing of active defenses or attacks is also a function of willpower. This attribute is the consummate survival gauge: The higher the score, the more likely the pilot will be able to persevere in difficult circumstances. A crucial component for success in all forms of command, Willpower is a primary attribute for Trade, Leadership, and Advanced Spaceship skills. It is also a key secondary attribute for many combat skills, such as Gunnery, Spaceship Command, and Missile Launcher Operation.
notes: Willpower does not increase the chances of achieving success during the application of skills, only how quickly the skills that depend on it are trained.
