So this is my first time playing Deadfire and I'm no expert at these type of games, much as I love them. I'm just playing on normal. I wanted to try Ascendant Cipher (I don't wanna be pure melee so no Soul Blade.) + some type of Barbarian but not sure which. I just don't know which stats I can afford to dump. Some builds I have found say you can dump CON but I dunno about that. Maybe pro players can but I am afraid. Do I need Perception or can I at least lower it to 7 or 8? I know everyone dumps Resolve but I consider stats to be important for roleplaying. Low Resolve doesn't fit my ideas for my character. I suppose I could just come up with a different character idea. And so I'm just kinda lost. Maxing Dexterity or Intellect seem like the way to go but after that...I got nothing. Any help would be appreciated.
