D&D 4E: The entry says Con is the only ability that isn't used as a dump stat, "because everyone needs hit points". Con nets you very little in the way of ANYTHING. Each point in Con raises your HP by one. That's it. It's used by only one skill. Its role in Fort defense can also be handled by Str. Sure, it gives you extra healing surges, but even wizards have six with no Con modifier. I'd never let it go below 10, but I'd still say that 4E reduced Con to the same dump stat status as Cha: not worth it unless you'll actually be using it.
