I have a guild mate who is just enthralled with his maxed out mechanic. His DD/Search/Spot/Open Lock all hover around 80 or more. Some how he made it to lvl 25 (God knows how??). He has around 300 HP's...8 Str (Not even an Item to boost str) Says he doesn't need str. He rarely fights and tries to find a safe place to stay out of the way of a fight.
But hey...at least he can get us the ingenious debilitation bonus.
