Well, you should look at perks first, you can buy some only if your ability at 5-base and ups from gear not count.

Yes, but i can check that on character creation. But skills like lockpicking, man at arms, or crafting drive me nuts - i cant plan out how many abilities should have one character to min max them all

Man at arms is 5 for warrior, perk is nice.

You are not as limited in points as you think. Once you unlock the Hall of Secrets in your Homestead, you can buy two books that give +1 Ability Score and +3 Skill Points, respectively. Every time you gain a level, these books will restock.

but ups from traits count ... for example with 4 base willpower and trait "Independent" you can buy "Comeback Kid", which normally needs 5 willpower

But you are not as limited as it seems:
After collecting 5 stones (star stones and blood stones count) you unlock a vendor at homestead (Hall of Secrets), which sells a book which increases attribute points by 1 and a book which increases ability points by 3. You can rebuy these books every level-up. If you need every point, try to delay some side quests to reduce level-ups until you get all 5 stones in Cyseal.


After spending your points on your wanted skills, don't waste the rest on less used skills, because:
After collecting 7 stones (star stones and blood stones count) you unlock a npc at homestead (Hall of Darkness), where you can convert ability points into attribute points (ratio is 5:1). Also you can convert talent points into ability points (ratio 1:10). So don't waste your points on "All Skilled Up" (adds 2 ability points) or "Bigger and Better" (adds 1 attribute point), if you have planned this, because you can can convert them into 10 ability points or 2 attribute points.
