Which is more efficient?

when we run into str-lacking situation for equipment,
which of the above (as title) is a better option?

for example, allocating 50 stat points & same inven. space for charm (let's say 10)

1. 50 str hard point + 10x 20hp sc = 50 str, 200 life

2. 50 vit + 10x 2 str sc = 150/200 life + 20 str

hard point str wins? any opinion?

or

str shud be better of get from other sources? and put all stat to vit + life charms?
need your advice, thank you :D

For 3 HP per vitality characters, a 20 life SC is worth 6.6 points into vitality. There is no other non-unique charm that provides that many stat points per inventory space. Even for 4 HP per vitality characters, this statement is still true.

Currently, the highest strength SC in the game is only +1 (it was nerfed, but I believe they plan to revert it in this upcoming patch). It is always optimal to use inventory space for Life charms rather than Strength.

That being said, the best place to get strength is from gear, primarily crafts and sockets. Your priority for obtaining strength should be roughly Gear > Hard Points > Charms. This is speaking for full optimization though and with planning for your end-game final strength stat. Strength Charms are fine in early/mid game, and are often necessary if you want to optimally vita-whore and still wear heavier gear.

With ED% from Strength nerfed significantly, there is no real reason to pump strength outside of wearing gear, so its always going to be optimal to squeeze every last point into vitality, only sparing hard points when obtaining strength from gear would be too heavy of a sacrifice to other mods.
