You have used all 500 sigs? That's likely your issue. The higher your stat numbers get, the more you'll get per point with charms and gear %attribute bonuses, making one point worth anywhere from 3-6 per point end game.

also in midgame if you lack stats you can rize mountain king to max to get some more. you can also use abandoned crafts if you need to. you can also just rely on defense on midgame by maxing bear stance and runemaster skills for example there is many options :)
