Stat Points Allocation

At Level 50

Stat Point Enhancement
Vigor 30 ・Raise to 30 to increase HP & durability
Mind 9 ・Initial value
Endurance 12 ・Initial value
Strength 17 ・Raise to meet the weapon requirement
Dexterity 13 ・Raise to meet the weapon requirement
Intelligence 7 ・Initial value
Faith 8 ・Initial value
Arcane 33 ・Raise to 33 after obtaining the Black Whetblade.

Prioritize raising Vigor, Strength, and Dexterity. With some luck, Grave Scythe can be obtained in the early game and it can be used if the required stats are met. In addition, Black Whetblade is a necessary item for Occult Affinity upgrade that can be obtained in the middle part of the game, and raising Arcane can be done later on.

At Level 120

Stat Point Enhancement
Vigor 45 ・Raise to increase HP & durability
Mind 21 ・Increase FP according to your preference
Endurance 20 ・Increase Stamina according to your preference
Strength 17 ・Raise to meet the weapon requirement
Dexterity 18 Rivers of Blood can be used with 18 points
Intelligence 7 ・Initial value
Faith 11 ・To equip Dragon Communion Seal & use Swarm of Flies
Arcane 60 ・First to prioritize to strengthen Blood Loss Buildup

It is good to raise Vigor, Mind, and Endurance for durability & survivability. Raise Dexterity to 18 so you can equip and use Rivers of Blood which is obtainable from Bloody Finger Okina at Church of Ripose in Mountaintops of the Giants.
