It's all good! I had many misconceptions about how the game worked that I had to work through with forum and character questions... and I am still clueless about a fair number of mechanics. This just happened to be a question easy enough for me to field, haha :).

@lion: Cost is n*100 xp for the n-th skill point, cost for abilities is n*500 xp for the n-th ability of that skill-tree (modified by affinities for archery/smithing w/ feanor, archery/will w/ fingolfing, archery/perception w/ finarfin). I guess, how important these points are, is something one learns very fast.

Anyway, I'm sure an argument could be made that spending initial XP on skills rather than on ability points is often not a good idea. In the early game, what's better––a slightly higher crit rate or a +1 to hit? Extra perception or the ability to see invisible monsters? +1 evasion, or +3 evasion only when moving? And so on.

That depends. If I'm going stealth early I'd take disguise or assassination straight a way. Song of elbereth is only 600 pts to take from the start & pretty much makes early orcs not a problem on an elf, if your taking it you may as well start with it. I've found on characters with low melee 1 melee+power to be better then 3. So yeah, depends but usually true.
