Yes defenitely strenght, as many points as you can shove in therer... i dont kow how i manage it but i always seem to carry around everythign i pick up... 'just in case' it ever comes up i need 25 scrolls of grey death or 7 amulets of summon ancestor... or a wizard staff, blessed spear, 3 swords, 2 knives, and an extra set of boots... i cant ever seem to get my wieght below 450... but ya I enchanted items as soon as i could afford it... which wasnt very soon. that CE 100 pts night eye is the best buy i ever made, get it as soon as possible! im just rambling on... ya enchanted items rule, but try to get rings casue they dont weigh as much, you wouldnt think hta 1 lb amulets would be that heavy... but they add up. ok good luck. and yes training 'the natural way' is always nice becasue it gives you experience, like how to aim your blade, but after level 10 go for the trainers, if yfou can afford it.
