Advice on Character Progression please :)

Hey guys!

I currently have a Fingolfin Elf who looks pretty promising.

The current question I am mostly asking is how I should spend my current xp pool and the archetypal direction you would recommend I take.

I have gotten a lot of heavy armor, so I went hard into that... I traded some +0, 1d2 greaves for the boots of Irime for the dex sustain and immunity to acid damage.

I've been using light weapons with finesse and switching between the gondolin/doriath to dispatch my foes... but since I finally ID'd this great axe and found it to be Hador's House it gives me a new style.

Please help this little elf go on strong!
