      Made 1 char with base intelligence, gets 8 SP per lvl, another with max Int that gets 10 SP, wouldn't surprise me if there were other bits that aren't disclosed in the descriptions.

        You can raise every attribute one tier beyond "Very High" which is called "Maximum". For example, if you consume a drink that gives +1 Mind attribute, your Intelligence if it's currently at Very High (+35% Crit Dmg), will temporarily reach Maximum (+50% Crit Dmg).
