The Wanderer and Pyromancer classes have the most stat points for their starting level (84, to be exact).
Newer players may consider picking a class that has good starting gear, such as the Warrior. The Thief also posesses the Master Key, which allows many doors to be opened earlier than normal.
While some classes start with more stat points, the end difference is only a few Soul Levels, so it isn't a big deal.
