    Bearing in mind that my build has been designed primarily to use magic (Power Within, Crystal Magic Weapon, etc) and stabbing weapons (a Balder Side Sword + 15 and the Ricard's Rapier + 15), is it worth me extending my Dexterity stat passed the 40 mark to the 45 magic casting speed ceiling, or would I be better served investing the 5 points in upping my 12 Strength stat to a slightly more respectable 17?

    The speed of spell casting increases with dexterity, max speed at 45 dex indeed. It depends on your playstyle.

    what style I have tends to levitate more towards using buffed weapons, with ranged magic as more of a back-up or to get a foes attention, and so knowing this would I really benifit from the 5 extra Dexterity points, or as I am now beginning to suspect will be much better served investing them in Strength?

    Hmm, purely from my perspective I would go 41 dex 16 str. 16 str opens up greatswords especially the flamberge which is a solid dex weapon. if not then I would get the dex. 17 str is a silly number to stop at IMO

    would I still see a notable benefit with the stats you've now suggested (41 Dexterity, and 16 Strength) if I were to stick with my preferred Balder Side Sword + 15 and Ricard's Rapier +15?

    this calc is very useful it will give you values for all of your propesed changes silly what is your int? by far int is what I would recommend if it is below 50, and if you only use ranged attacks as a secondary then the str will be more use than dex (I think) and dex scaling for weapons is awful post 40

    In this instance I think I'll be going with Strength over Dexterity.
