    I have a macer bard with 100 of bushido ( then i need mana). What the best stats? I have 255 as stat cap.
    I thought
    100 str
    105 dex
    55 int
    It' ok or for a macer is more important strenght instead of int?

    There are three factors for dexterity:

    1) Bandage speed

    If you aren't using bandages to heal, then this isn't a factor for you.

    If you are, you typically want dex maxed out at 125, and add in some enhancements to get 4 second bandages if you can.

    2) Swing Speed

    1.25 swing is the fastest you can achieve, and this is ultimately what you want with a weapon, though some heavy hitting mace weapons are worth swinging a bit slower. The higher your dex, the easier it is to achieve a low swing delay with a better weapon.

    Consult swing speed charts, but you have to balance against your need for mana - this is usually the warrior's question. Strength is usually the one that gets the last consideration. You do get a bonus for 100+ strength, and of course it determines your hit points - it's always a squeeze!

    3) Parry restrictions

    As far as I know, the current minimum dex to be able to parry effectively is 80.
