|Strength defines how well a character can handle physical challenges. The more Strength, the less depletion of Stamina when wielding heavy weapons (most weapons except daggers and sabres) and the more powerful your attacks. Each level up of Strength also significantly increases the capacity of your inventory, as well as influencing how fast you can sprint with a heavy load. Strength is increased primarily by combat.
You get Strength perk points at every other level up.
Strength experience is gained by:
- Successful hits in combat against living targets
- Picking up herbs if Henry has the Leg Day perk for Herbalism.
Once Henry has completed the tutorial and reached Rattay, he can speak to Sir Bernard to start combat training. Time spent training here will increase Strength without risk. You can also ignore the instructions and continuously train during the chain strikes section.
