This topic is as old as the game. There was much discussion about this in the beta forums and I was a vocal proponent of abolishing the stat allocation system entirely. As others in the thread have pointed out, it conflicts with the armoury system and adds more headaches than anything else.
This topic encouraged me to make another video explaining myself, and my "general allocation" method.
My video is an example of how to "generalize" your stats and "swing" them with minimal reallocations and traits: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGNlv1cO8m4
This is a good baseline for most players until they know what class they plan on taking to 50. In which case they can move to a "prime allocation" setup for the 1 class they want to play. I will make a video explaining that in the future.
Mog, your archer has 75 INT, which only has a marginal effect on Shock Spikes and 50 PIE, which actually does absolutely nothing for an archer. How can you with a straight face keep saying people are doing it wrong when you're literally wasting dozens of points? Then you instruct us how useful the point traits are, and they are, but they don't add anything to your argument. A +10 STR -10 PIE trait will benefit a melee class no matter what his stats are. They're not a tool for tilting your balanced stats, they're a tool for adding useful stats at the cost of useless stats and every class has both of those regardless of how you've allocated your points.
I know you go on and say focused stats are ok if you only level DoW or DoM, but that's where the alarm bells should start ringing in your head. Don't you realize you're gimping yourself by trying to level multiple jobs? I mean, you just confessed you can't support an optimized stat allocation because you need to be able to play your THM as well as your ARC. Do you not see how that is a problem?
I personally leveled both THM and CON to 20 not too long ago even though I really had no interest in maining either. It took me days to switch over my stats from full physical to full magical. It then took me another several days to swing them back. And yes, I use stat traits but that makes no difference as I'd still rather have 105 STR and 5 PIE than 100 STR and 10 PIE.
