Many leveling warriors ask how to spend their stat points. I want to give a small guide how you could do that.
I want to show the way to the common final 173 str, dex or int specification for level 55. This means to have just enough str, dex or int to wear the corresponding gear. I wrote about why to chose that spec in the How to spec your endgame bear thread.
Based on that I looked up the requirements for lower level sets. The result is a tables that shows how to spend your stat points. The goal is to always have just enough stat points to wear the gear you want.
The primary stat is the one you want to wear gear of. So if you want to wear str gear, your primary stat is str. I based the table on primary str but the numbers for dex are nearly the same.
You can go a bit lower on the primary stat because the most helms have slightly lower requirements. Iíve put in example items. You can look up other items in the threads at the Traderís Market.
You can go a lot lower when using boost gear before equipping the final gear. See Ellyís Dual Spec Guide for that topic. The easiest - and expensive - boost gear is a level 10 premium 4 piece set. It adds 28 str or dex points with close to no requirements and basically allow you to dual spec from levels 12 to 50.
And of course, this is just one variant to spec. Everyone should spec according to their needs, I just want to show one variant for a balanced bear while leveling - and maybe help to save some respec platinum.
So for example, you want to use str gear, "end up" as a level 56 173 str / 111 dex bear and be able to wear the pink str sets along the way. That would mean as a level 25 you should spec 78 points str and 51 points dex.
And of course, this should work for int bears too.
