Anybody has played with max melee ?

Since most people believe that Mournbringer is the best sword, perhaps it is very rare that someone has used melee more than 5. However, Mournbringer has only 22AP plus vampire, which is defense. There are many weapons which have damage more 30 plus special effect. I can think of a melee of 8 and magic of 4-5 would be interesting ?

I did the first time I played but subsequent playthroughs I put my skills elsewhere e.g into magic when I got melee above 3 points.

My first few playthroughs were pretty balanced with everything. At one point I beat the game three times over, with only upgrading one skill set (I.E: only melee, only magic, only bows). It made the game rather interesting actually. Especially magic only which was quite a challenge.

Full on Melee is a blast. Any way you decide to play is, really.
So many things you can't play with unless you go to 8, though.
Tempest, Maulgak's maul...
It's the same with the high level bows, and the top tier spells. I had to play multiple times to get it all in.
By the way... Multiple is a mighty understatement. I've played it a LOT 8^)
