General Info

Insight is a stat that is acquired by exploring the world and defeating bosses. Required to ring the Beckoning Bell. Higher Insight leads to world changes, including additional moves for enemies, new enemies where none were before, previously invisible things turning visible, and a damage/defense increase. Most world changes happen at 15 Insight. Frenzy Resist and Beasthood decrease with each additional point of Insight.
