Strength Stature and magical aura are all affected by what you do in combat eg. if use your rifle or pistol more your stature will go up. strength-character looks slightly bigger gets muscles stature- character gets taller magical aura- character gets magical glyphs and glow when using magic
Does it take very long to get up strength and stature because I think im pretty far in the game and I've upgraded my sword and my pistol and the road to rule three times each but my strength and stature are both still at 1 star. Is that normal?
Upgrading Strength, Skill, and Will in the Road to Rule upgrades the stars for WEAPONS. You can view /those/ stars at the bottom of the Heroic Stats page. The three stats at the top only increase when you use the appropriate weaponry in combat.
