    Default Clerics and Strength

    It used to be that Strength was not a Cleric value, but now some cleric items come with strength stats.

    So do I need Strength now?

    I can't see how it is. It's the RNG gone wild.

    I am not aware of any item that contains both (for example) wisdom and strength. I would assume if you've found such an item it is a bug.

    What you might be seeing is an item that clerics *can* wield, but is not actually a cleric item. Like clerics and warriors can both equip 2 hand weapons, but that does not mean a two handed weapon with strength on it is meant for clerics.

    Strength is LITERALLY USELESS to Clerics. The "cleric item" - could you share its name? - is not a cleric item, by virtue of the fact that it has strength on it.

    If a piece of chain armor has strength on it, that's a bug because strength is for warriors, and warriors wear plate, not chain.
    If a hammer has strength on it, that's weird, but not a bug, and still not a cleric item.
    If you are allowed to equip any item (armor or weapon) with strength on it, that does not make it a cleric item, and does not imply that you should equip it.

    Default Strength is useless for Clerics

    Sorry- you have been visited by RNGesus. You need Wisdom and crit or stamina based on what you spec'd. You have to keep "rolling" for pieces and or planar frags with wisdom or crit power. CP is hard to come by. Good luck.

    That is not the most useful conclusion when the OP neglected to give a single example.

    This would most likely be a bug, but as no specific information was given, there is also little to be done here.

    Default RNG is a thing.

    Thank you for your response Tacitus. Perhaps there is not enough specificity in the OP. That said- in planar fragments alone the RNG is beyond frustrating.
