― In-game description

Strength (STR) is a trait that is primarily used by Warriors, who benefit from its strong bonus to 2-handed weapons and to a lesser extent hand weapons. Clerics have also been known to pick up a couple points when favoring heavier weapons (and to get the hit point/level bonus).

You can also equip certain armour items to give this trait a boost.
