Combat Strength explained in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora

Combat Strength is a number that showcases your character’s current strength level. Every quest and enemy in the game has a recommended combat level; if your level is lower than the recommended, you’ll have a hard time completing it. If the difference is too big, you won’t be able to complete it at all, as enemies will almost one-shot you.

Similarly, when hunting certain creatures, if their Combat Strength is higher than yours, you won’t be able to one-shot them and get both hunting bonuses. Thankfully, Combat Strength can increase and decrease during your playthrough. Let’s see how to do it.

How to increase Combat Strength

To increase Combat Strength in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora, unlock new Ancestor and normal skills while also making sure to craft and equip better weapons and armor. Each combat skill you unlock will increase your strength slightly, so make sure to collect any Tarsyu Saplings you can find around the map. As for where to spend your points, here are the best skills in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora.

Also, Combat Strength depends on the gear you have equipped, not the gear you are carrying. Thus, make sure to check your gear constantly and ensure that the strongest pieces are equipped. If your gear is weak and you want to increase strength quickly, gather high-quality materials and use them to craft better gear.

As for consistently getting high-quality materials, your best bet is unlocking specific skills in the Maker tree. These will increase your gathering rewards and allow you to get better materials from vendors.

To summarize, the best way to increase Combat Strength in Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora is by farming skill points and spending them in the Maker tree. This way, you’ll be able to gain access to higher-quality materials, which can then be used to craft stronger gear.
