    I was wondering if the required strength for wearing a plate tunic is 95 then how high does ones strength have to be to avoid having it drop off when monsters curse or whatever other stat affecting spell is cast upon you? Or if your strength is 95 what mods can be imbued to prevent the armor from dropping off?

    Lower Requirements which will reduce the strength needed.

    Imbuing strength on ring/bracelet or using an artifact that has + strength (like Spirit of the Totem).

    I know there is a formula for how much a spell like curse or weaken drops your strength but I don't understand. Seems like you should be safe if you increase strength a little more than 10% but some monsters drop my strength more. It must be a combination of spells maybe by different monsters. I guess I can boost strength as much as possible and then add a lower requirements item. This is for a parry character so a shield would work. I was just wondered if anyone had a number like 120 strength where you were safe and no way would your armor dorp off.

    Weaken and Curse are based on the caster's Eval Int; I can't remember off the top of my head if the effect is lowered by Resist Spells, or whether the chance of it taking effect is.

    Some creatures (like the abysmal horrors in the doom gauntlet) have well over 120 Eval Int - in fact, I think the horrors have something like 200 in the skill.

    The formula is this ((8+ (Evaluate Intelligence)/10 – (Resist)/10) strength. My character is human with zero resist with an all 70 suit. does the suit resist not matter? I am not sure how to do the calculation Now I have the strength up to 111 but I don't understand this format of an equation. The parentases mean multiplication by the strength? the other portion of it is 8 plus 200 (if has 200 eval) divided by 10 (10 minus 0 resist) divided by 10 comes to 2.1 (rounded out) multiplied by 111? I don't get it.

    for 200 eval it is
    8 + 20 - 0 = 28%
    111 * 28% = 31
    111 - 31 = 80 str when cursed
