For bards/paladins rolls take longer than my patience allows (im bit impatient). One day 30 minutes of rolling paid off. I had 18 in dex, int and str, 16 in con, 18 in cha, and 10 in wis. This was my skald, and this was kinda great, but then my computer deleted the game by bug and (sob) The savefile was gone!!!! Arghh!!!!
Had to do the damn rolling "nightmare" again...finally contended with 17 str, 18 dex and int, 16 con, 18 int, 10 wis, 15 cha. Some classes drive me up the wall when it comes to rolls!!!

You could have set your rolls with ShadowKeeper as well...

Best roll I ever had was for an Inquisitor:
18/42 Str
18 Dex
18 Con
12 Int
16 Wis
18 Cha

Paladins easilly get the highest stats because of their high base minimums. Highest I can get in any other class is 95 total. I never used this Inquisitor though, decided to play a Cavalier instead.

Im a rolling freak, I can literally spend hours rolling up a single char, just zone out and keep on clicking. Well that was when I was a min/maxer, Im not so much anymore.

Ive found it's rather disappointing maxing out the protagonist, as all the NPCs look rather tame compared. So Im give my NPCs all the bonus equipment first, and the stat increases from Lum's machine.

Heres a good way to adjust ur rolls- put charisma down to the minimum. Because u get a ring of Human Influence in one of the first quests u can do- It sets charisma to 18, even if it is normally higher.
This means that if u have 3 charisma (mimum for most classes), and u put on this ring, u sudenly have 18 charisma!!!!!!!
NOTE: Dont try this with a paladin- they dont gain to much from this. There minimum Charisma is about 17

What's wrong with Powergaming? What is it anyway? Isn't it the object of the game to have the most powerful weapons, armor, etc.? What's wrong with having as powerful stats as you can? Who are you giving a break to, the game?
