Please update information, thank you
Default stats are determined by item type, e.g. Weapons will always have Damage. These are different than primary or other stats.
Weapons are hero-specific gear.
Primary Stat: Hero Power (Damage)
Armor has four different types, each having their own equipment slot.
Primary Stat: Hero Physical/Magical Resist
Relics come in two different forms. Each Relic has its own Primary Stat. The four relics and their primary stat are:
Both gain additional stats and slots based on drop rarity. They come with 2 additional tower stats and 0 to 3 shard sockets.
Each Relic slot in the hero equipment page corresponds to the tower/aura on the hero hotkey bar. As an example for the Squire:
1st relic slot affects the Barricade.
2nd relic slot affects the Cannonball Tower.
3rd relic slot affects the Ballista.
4th relic slot affects the Training Dummy.

Conventional wisdom dictates:
Defense Health for walls (path blockers like barricade).
Defense Critical Damage for damage towers/auras.
Defense Power for damage towers/auras as secondary stat.
Defense Speed is worst stat.
Defense Critical Hit Chance is said to be capped around 33% chance so it's not needed much after you cap it with your ascension level points.
Determines the effective Level of the item. When used in rooms with a max level lower than the required level, the item is down leveled to that room, reducing its stats.
The amount of times an item can be upgraded at the Upgrade Station. Each time an item is leveled up, the player is given a point to add to one of the items stats
An Item's Prefix defines its stats, gg based on its type and quality, split into two key words.
An Item's Passive offers one or two special stats, mentioned at the end of the item.
