Dungeon Master of Middle-earth
Unless you have other odd scores that you care about, it is a waste. Otherwise, it would be better to raise one by 2, then the other by two, instead of raising each by one twice.
You're missing my point. The investment is worthwhile not only because you get to raise that odd score to even, but also by raising your even score to odd with your extra point you're setting yourself up to raise that score to even and still have an extra point you can use elsewhere the next time around.
