Version 0.12: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Might is a status effect that adds +5 to strength and +1d10 to melee damage for its duration. There are two sources of might:

Tips & Tricks

Might is useful for dealing with monsters that are troublesome, but for which berserk or Haste would be overkill and/or unsafe - compared to those, might has no drawbacks unless you extend it, so it's safe to use. Unfortunately, as it is only available through a potion or by going berserk, you may find yourself with a very limited number of uses per game.

Short Blades-users should be sure be bring along might before engaging in combat with extremely powerful foes. The 1d10 extra damage adds up quickly when you're attacking with a quick blade.

Be careful with picking stuff up during might. You don't want to become Overloaded or Encumbered when the duration runs out.

Monster Version

This effect is usually far stronger for monsters: it multiplies their damage output by 1.5, instead of simply adding 1d10. For this reason, one should exercise extreme caution around monsters such as moths of wrath, deep troll shamans, Rupert, and Wiglaf.


Prior to 0.12, extending might through further quaffing of potions would inflict one point of magic contamination.
