Go back and see if you can forge a weapon and look for any kind of indicator to points, perhaps you had them or started with some, and didn't realize. Another option is that they took that out in this game and the site I got this from is behind, although I doubt it.
Okay so when you are playing you notice that arrow. Basically this affects your skill activation percent, accuracy percent, and avoid percent. when the arrow is the largest green - + 10 percent green - + 5 percent none - same red - - 5 percent largest red - - 10 percent
