This's what I consider to be minimum stats if I were
to equip a mage with as much mind as possible:
Dex needs 40 con, 22 str.
Con needs 60 dex, 22 str.
Str needs 40 con, 60 dex.
Now, I'm not basing that 60 dex on the pre-req for a
certain skill, I have a char with an OLD eye, OLD
silver feather and OLD worn gloves. Even though he
started out at 30 dex, I gradually moved him up to
what I consider to be the minimum in both the ability
land hits and for the use of numerous skills as well
being able to FLEE!
From the above, dex has an extra 20 stats over con
and an extra 38 stats over str. That's just messed up.

and with all the HP gear they get a nice hp for
not having much con. but Str gets that bonus too.
well its Dexmud and doubt that will change unless
they do something where dex weapons hit REALLY weak
or backstab change or something or that major nature.
just gotta live with it.

But take a 100dex mind... and put him against a strength mage
that could only manage 75 mind.... 75 mind is a strong
sink... and bash is for free. The dex mage is NOT better off.
Take the same dex mage and put him against a con mage with 75
mind... the con mage has a lot more trouble.. I think dex prevails.
However, take that con mage and put him against the strength mage
that has no resistance to headbutt.. hm... its a like circle
Everyone has a strength and weakness... if the system makes it
so that it makes more sense to high mind dex and mid mind str
and con mages..then so be it. Thats how to make the character
most effective for pkill.
The fact is that being pkill restricts viable character options.
Low mind dex mages, never seem to have enough strength or con
to make it worth being low mind.... and on the other side, high mind
strength or con never seem to have enough dex to make the high
mind worth it.
Its just the way the ball rolls. I dont see it as uneven, just a bit
limiting. For pkill, it will always be like that.
Sometimes you can get creative and make some weirdo character
that doesnt fit these pkill "standards".
You are calling 60 dex a "min" for a pkiller.... thats the source of yor
limitation. I can assure you that 60 dex is more useful to a strength
mage than 60 strength is to a dex mage. Perfect balance makes for
a boring game! Everyone gets somepart of the pizza. Dont complain
cause you wanted the corner, and you got the middle.
