This game is so frustrating with its stats. And the best I could get (after I don’t know, um, 10 hours of game time checking them all out?) was being a Mage Knight (Oh yeah, is it possible to become a Paladin? Religion+Healing+Blades? ). I can’t focus on just one field of profession because it just gets too high and to get through the game, you need to focus on others as well.
Charm (omg, life saver—70+)
Magic and Blades (Managed to get them in high equal levels—80+)
At the beginning of the game, I chose spellbook, magic magic, magic but choose physical attributes over academics and then chose charm options (slept with somebody but if it has to happen…plus, +10 charm is worth it). Soon, I chose Sir Grady and was taught blade skills and chose squire to get a +blades bump. But after, I chose wizard apprenticeship so that my magic can catch up with my blades. Over the game, I switched between using magic and my sword and we asked my way through charm.
However, my will is slow but I try to keep it up. So far, this is the institute I have taken. Being an assassin and thief is so hard to achieve…
And saved my money for good stuff.
