Hoe do you get the stars up in these areas. I am in bowerstone now and none of these have gone up. I kill everything and have done all the quests up until this point. Is there something special I need to do.
Using them alot makes them go up but it is a relativley slow progress. Especially if your like me and I like to vary my kills. I've been told using the hammer will make your strength go up quicker than the sword will. Regardless I've kept my sword. I did go up in magic aura though but especially since getting the spell weave I launch a lot of spells.
I liked using the hammer type weapons so I had no problem buffing up. I also liked to shoot people in the face, so my stature went up too. Also setting people on fire while I electrocute them makes me giggle, and apparently gave me a more noticeable magic aura.
Just use the corresponding skill to kill enemies and that stat will go up eventually. If you like to explore a lot and tend to run into lots of baddies it won't be too hard to max them all out. Or if you're evil, just go nuts in a town and slaughter as many guards and villagers as you want.
Just finished the game, ONLY used my Pistol / Rifle, took the Hammer and only used it until I got a gun, never upgraded Magic, never upgraded the Hammer, but I did upgrade Ranged all the way and also bought every expression / work upgrade I could. This is what I ended up with:
Strength: Two stars. Stature: Five stars. Magical Aura: No stars.
I think it's safe to say that upgrading Lute / Pie / Blacksmithing contributes to Strength, since I never used my Hammer aside from the start of the game where you don't have a ranged weapon yet. Hope this info is helpful to someone.
