I dont think you have to stack or think of one stat the game seams much more open ended. For example the outlander is a ranged class however has plenty of magical ablitys so you could add in a bit of focus.|
Strength is weapon damage across the board but doesnt effect elemental damage. So say your a outlander who is using more magic based skills then you might want more dex for the dodge and focus for damage. Or maybe you only want the ranged weapon damage then you get those skills in the ranged tree. Same goes goes with all the classes i think like engineer can be a melee tank or a ranged cannon wielder.
Really is up to you which stats you want to focus on to supplement your fighting style. I think the only real exception is the embermage, appears to be very magic focused (duh) so will need focus either way.
Personally i am an outlander focusing on Dex with some focus and using the middle tree i think called 'Lore' so iam ranged weapon damage who uses magic enchanted attacks. But i can see how i could go all the way weapon or all the way magic with a few different choices.
