as for "rocking a 14 int..."
How many servers have I roamed, trying to bring a 14 Int-fighter to work smoothly? Somehow, it invariably proofed to be a serious disadvantage in the build. Why ever did I convince myself that this time a mere cautious 13 would be in order? When this is the first server I ever played on where a low int really means your char WILL run into trouble because of it, even or perhaps especially if it's "just" a fighter? No, don't take me serious, I am not complaining, far from it It's just that things really are as they should be- and it came as a surprise.
