Strength increases your Attack Power and increases the amount of damage blocked with a shield. You gain 2 Attack Power for every point of Strength. Attack Power raises your Damage per Second (DPS) by 1 for every 14 Attack power or 7 Strength. The amount of damage blocked depends on your level versus the level of the attacker and your Strength jointly with the overall damage reduction gained from your Armor Rating. Shamans who use a 1 handed weapon and a shield gain the most benefit from this stat versus other weapon/equipment variants.
