But if I am planning on making a Kensai that will end up dual-classing to a Cleric what is the minimum roll I would need to max out all of the stats that those two classes need? (sorry I'm really a newb at these games right now but trying to learn.)
I would suggest aiming for 18s in strength, dexterity and constitution to help your fighting abilities and 18 in wisdom as well to get bonus clerical spells. With 9 in intelligence to allow you to use various magical items that means that you would need a total of 84 with a 3 in charisma. It's easy to roll more than that, so you could bump up your charisma a bit if you get a higher roll.
thanks for commenting to m question about where to put my stats. You are right my total role was 83... but it still isn't enough to gain an 18 out of charisma (I don't mind th charisma for the prices by the way, but what should I shoot for when rolling?) sorry for being a newb.
