Strength

Strength is one of the four skills that a character can upgrade in Castle Crashers. At the start, any melee attack is likely to do approximately 3-5 damage. With each point put into Strength, a bit more damage will be dealt, and new combos will become available.

Castle5 16 03

Players attacking each other in an Arena match. The damage dealt with melee is dependent on one's Strength level.

The most attack bonus you can have is 7, e.g.: being equipped with a Fishing Spear (or another weapon that gives +5 strength, like the Clunky Mace or club ) in combination with an animal orb which provides a strength bonus, like Burly Bear or Snoot. (Note that XP is earned per hit, meaning strength will give you less overall in melee.)

If no weapons or animal orbs that boost strength are equipped, the base damage is 37-43 damage.

The following are the attacks a player can perform throughout the game. Increasing your strength level will cause more damage to be dealt with these attacks.
