Thirded. Using your example, you end up with 350 WIS.

Note, though, that there are some debuffs (those cast in the Trial of Specialization are a good example) that also lower the stat cap. So it is worth checking to see what Lucy says about the debuff in question.

I see your logic in that, and can't say that I disagree.

To my eyes, though, they look hidden. And, well, out of place. Although that may just be a side effect from seeing them "the other way" so frequently.

The same steps will probalby be sufficient to update any custom UIs you are running too.
