Focus points is a character attribute which is exclusively for the Veles class in Expeditions: Rome. This stats basically serves as a second form of action points for the character. Instead of being given every turn, these must be earned by unarmed or weapon attacks which require action points.

Like hit points, focus points can continuously change during battle and as result, there is a minimum and a maximum amount of focus points. The character starts with 0 focus points, and earns points until the maximum is reached, which is five points at the start for every Veles. These points can be used when the amount of points available is equal or more than the amount required. When that amount is reached, it can be used to perform an active skill, which may either be an attack, set a certain status effect for the Veles or to inflict a status effect on the enemy.
