statting is when you are "hunting" for stats. At level 3 you get a set of physical/mental stats. It is all random and can take a while to get something you are satisfied with. Depending on what setup you would like to play you want different stats.
As someone in abs/tank, you'd like as high str and as high con as possible, the other stats aren't as important. For someone who wants to play combo(a combination of abs and defense) you'd like a mix of high str/dex/con, and for someone who wants to play pure dodge(no abs, focus on DB, dodge bonus,) you want as high dex as possible. Generally easiest to learn the game on an abs warrior, as it is easier to put a set of equipment together compared to people in combo/dodge.
I believe there is also the option of choosing prerolledstats from the getgo, the game will assign you some set stats depending on what class you are, they are usually not super good, but decent enough to learn on and you can stat a new character later on.
I'd recommend joining one of the south eastern clans, Defenders of the stone/Mayene Winged Guard/ Illian companions to learn the basics of the mud, but if you are already familiar with muds and the PK mechanics are similar to other muds you've played you might not need as much help in that regard. I personally started in the SE and loved every minute of it.
