taptap is on a distinguished road
Combat skills and other skills scale differently. Combat rolls are 1d20 (20 sided die), other skill rolls 1d10. Remembering this makes it more intuitive to "run ahead" with investment combat skills.

Fwiw, you can play the game without any abilities (as a challenge). When doing so I was surprised that at least the start felt easier than normal. Just try for a few attempts to take nothing initially (and spend the savings in evasion / melee or archery) and specialize later on.

In your current situation you may have trouble to damage opponents not covered by your slaying weapons, but judicious use of Song of Slaying may help (or doom you by attracting the whole floor).

For the next melee oriented Fingolfin, I would take 3 3 5 3 as stats.
