The Strengthen Enchantment is gained from Whackagi, which makes it kind of difficult to gain, but what happens if someone does? Essentially, my question is How Will The Strengthen Enchantment Benefit People?
1. What Is The Strengthen Enchantment?
The Strengthen Enchantment, quite simply, strengthens creatures and objects, tripling their strength and durability. Strengthened creatures thus exert three times as much force as they would normally when moving, which of course requires them to be three times as durable.
However, A) the increased strength does not come with increased energy output, the Enchantment takes care of that and B) the Enchantment has reasonable limits. While the increased durability of a Strengthened creature or object makes them 3x harder to deform, bend, weaken, or break, Strengthened creatures can hear and feel texture, pressure, and temperature just as well as normally. It's just that the body parts necessary to gain this sensory information are harder to break.
If an object or creature with this Enchantment kills another Whackagi, the Strengthen Enchantment is strengthened slightly, and the Enchanted creature or item then hits five times harder and is 5x more resistant to damage. The creature's increased strength and resistance is not multiplied by five; rather, it's original strength and resistance is multiplied by 5 instead of 3.
If that creature or item then kills a third Whackagi, its effect doubles; the Enchantment holder hits 10x harder and is 10x harder to damage.
2. How Do You Get It?
In order to gain a monster's enchantment, you must use one of the following methods:
A. Be Inside It When It's Killed
If a monster eats you and you're still alive when it's killed, you gain its Enchantment and are healed of whatever injury may have resulted from being exposed to the mercies of another's digestive systems.
B. Kill It With Your Own Body
A good example would be Hercules strangling the Nemean Lion. If your body is the weapon used to kill a monster, then you gain its Enchantment. However, there must be no buffer. Put in clearer terms, strangling a monster for its Enchantment will do you no good if you're wearing gloves, because the gloves will get Enchanted instead!
One way to do this would be to eat a Whackagi, alive and whole, making your digestive system the weapon that kills the monster. However, the size of a Whackagi should make this impossible, so....
C. Using a Better Weapon
There are two ways to do this. The first is to kill the Whackagi with an weapon incorporating your own body, while the second is to kill a Whackagi with part of another creature and then use A or B on that creature, after it gains the desired Enchantment. (The latter's pedantic, eh?)
The first can be accomplished by simply forging one's nail clippings and/or baby teeth into a sword, then killing a monster with it. This will enchant both you and the weapon. The second requires you to take a horn, claw, or fang from a living creature and either forge that into a weapon or use the creature part itself as a weapon. Once the Whackagi is killed by this method, you can then use A or B on the unlucky creature to gain the Strengthen Enchantment from it.
So, what would be the benefits of hitting 3, 5, or 10x harder while also being 3-10x harder to bend, break, or deform, for a person in medieval Europe? Please Note: For the purposes of answering this question, people with the Strengthen Enchantment have titles. Someone who's killed one Whackagi is a Strongman (or Strongwoman), while someone who's killed two Whackagi is a Strongerman. Someone who's maxed the Enchantment is called a Strongestman, or Strongest for short.
Specifications For Best Answer:
The best answer will analyze and account for the benefits of Strengthen and determine its potential uses and relevant career paths for those holding it, whether they are Strongest or merely a Strongman.
Additionally, as this Enchantment is most likely to affect construction and combat, the best answer will also take into account how Strongmen would affect those areas.
