Is there a limit as to how high a characters stats can go? (strength, health points, mana points. focus, etc.)

Before that, the beneficial effects from stats are determined by some of the graphs in MEDIA/GRAPHS/STATS/. Two issues here:

One: The graphs use 32-bit floating point numbers. So we can assume that there's almost certainly an int-to-float cast performed somewhere along the line. 32-bit floats can represent numbers up to 3.402823466*10^38. However, they start running out of precision much, much sooner than that. They only have enough precision to exactly represent whole numbers up through 16,777,216. Beyond that, the whole numbers start rounding into each other. So, for example, if you had 16,777,217 Strength, it would get rounded down to 16,777,216 before getting put into the graph to calculate your damage bonus. The span of whole numbers that get rounded together doubles with every power of two.

Two: Some of the graphs are set to interpolate beyond the last defined point; others aren't. If a graph doesn't interpolate past the last defined point, that point is the highest output you can get, no matter how high the input.

Examples:

Finally, dodge, block, and critical damage are subject to hard caps for all sources taken together (75%, 75%, 500%), which can leave you in a situation where increasing an attribute has no meaning since you're already at the cap.

[edit: I misunderstood what you meant by "stat." The above answer applies to Strength, Vitality, Focus, and Dexterity, which are what most folks around here mean by "stats." As for health and mana, they're floats, so the absolute max is 3.402823466*10^38 and odd rounding behavior will set in above 16,777,216. I don't believe there is any cap for them.]
