I am in my thirties level-wise. Got 18/18/18/14 on Vit/Str/End/Dex and 12/12 on Attunment and Int. So I'm low high-end on Melee and have basic magic functionality. I wonder if I shall go deeper into magic or go after freak weapons and armor. I got a Sword and Shield combo from some giant moss covered statue and the stats are INSANE! I love the idea of it.
Would I hamstring myself if I don't go for crazy gear and build a well-rounded character? I mean going for the 40 strength treshold seems a bit extreme and I would only be able to pull it off if I focus on strenght first and foremost.
