Ok, this small test proves nothing.
By the way: while stats like e.g. HP are straight-forward, I have no idea how to socket and balance the offensive stats (accuracy, attack, crit) for my chars. It certainly also depends on the equipped weapon and the stigmas used. So much outdated, incomplete and contradicting material on the web... - trustworthy formulas would be a great help in finding out the optimal setup for one's goals.
