Strength is one of the six character abilities. It's a very important character ability for fighters, paladins, rangers and barbarians. It determines how often a character hits with his weapons in combat, how much damage is delivered, how much a character can carry and a chance to open doors or chest without lockpicking. It also affects which items a character may use which are in range of the chosen class.

BashingEdit

Bashing works exactly the same as a thief's Pick Lock ability, allowing a strong character to open a locked door or chest by attacking it with a weapon, but does not grant experience for a successful lock bash, and cannot go above 80 points. Like Pick Lock, Bashing works on a threshold system - if you're within 5 points of the target lock's difficulty you have a 50% chance of bashing it successfully, while if you're equal to or greater than the lock's difficulty, it's guaranteed.
