How to restore lowered stat?

Hi.
I've just noticed my STR dropped to 3 and unfortunately I missed how it happened. Is there a way to look up what influences the stats? How can I restore it to base level of 10?

Thanks in advance.

The alchemist sells potions of 'restore strength' and that is probably the best choice for early on in the game.

Potions of strength will also restore strength before increasing it. Same with potions of brawn (i think)

The only other low level item are mushrooms of vigor. They will restore all stats. Mushrooms are (still) pretty rare though.

Later on there are some more options. rods of restoration, priest spells of restoration, !Aug, !Life will all work.

The most lilely culprits are a red ant or a red frog.

Or melee with red jelly.

Rings of STR and several other items give "sustain STR". Like Crowns of Might. That prevents losing points from stat (only time attacks go thru that).

It all goes to show: you should pay attention to what's going on when you're fighting things.

(Another possible source of stat drain is dart traps, but you're unlikely to get drained all the way down to 3 just from those)

Thanks for answers, everyone! RESTORE CONSTITUTION did indeed work with my two point constitution drain, which is great, but RESTORE STRENGTH did nothing to my STR of 3 It didn't change at all. Any ideas what's that all about? If that helps, the colour of attribute in the upper left section of the screen is green, while the drained ones were all yellow.

Ah, that sounds like you got hit by a nexus attack that swapped two stats. For instance, if you were a hobbit mage, and your charisma was 10 and got swapped with your strength, it could take you down to 3. If the base stat before modifiers is 10 or less, and your charisma or one of your other useless stats (wis or int, depending on class) are very high, a nexus attack probably got you.

That sort of attack has resulted in the loss of more than one promising character for me in the 30s. Nexus is one of the more critical resists, just to avoid the side effects.

Yep, the only thing in Vanilla that can reduce stats while leaving them "green" is a stat swap effect. That means either Nexus (swaps the values of two stats straight out) or a stat-swap potion (like Brawn, Intellect, Nimbleness, etc.) which takes a single point from one stat and puts it in the other. Nexus is by far the most likely here. Avoid Nexus Hounds like the plague! Nexus vortices should also be avoided. Fortunately nexus threats besides those two are quite rare. Unfortunately, the only thing you can do if you get nailed by a bad stat swap is raise the stat back up the hard way -- Potions of Strength and Potions of Augmentation, both fairly rare. Or you could hope to get lucky with another stat swap, but the odds are against it...

Yeah. It's one of those mixed-blessing items that you may have read about.
