Hiya, have been looking on a few templates to aid me making my own, but im not sure whats really worth capping, everyone says diffrent things...

Some say Str isnt really needed on a low weapon spec.
Some say Dex isnt worth capped, as it as low affect on minstrels (?).
Some say Qui totaly kills my template.
Some say the complete diffrence :)

So can anyone guide me thru this madness? My spec is 50/33/30 (instru, stealth, slash).

The only way dex affects you is to increase your demezz cast speed,
Str affects your damage a lot cap and cap increase this
Qui has up and downsides.. up to you if you want to fully stat this
con and + hits are important
and resists help a lot..

Thats my take on it

Cap and cap increase str...VERY IMPORTANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dex dont even bother with it...no point

Quiness need to cap, however not so important to overcap my minstrel has 215 quick on a highlander (Buffed), I do wish I had more though...but its 2 from cap.

Hits important should be aiming for 2k hp..(buffed)

and also super extremely important to cap charisma...second only to str but not by very much.

No its not worth char overcap...just make sure you get the full 75..

Skills unless your gonna charm pets i would only cap stealth and slash, you need to get as much con and strength cap and possible and cap all resists..

So in summery I would say

Overcap Str/Con
Cap Slash and Stealth Skills
Cap Charisma
Get all resists above 22% and make sure you cap slash and thurst resists
Get as much af bonus as possible
Include spell dmg in your template (atlantis tablet for 5% passive resist peirce for DD's)
Get +hits on armour
And remember you loose con when swapping to a weapon with hits or con on it.
Make sure you get as much style damage bonus/melee dmg bonues and swing speed as possible.
