- The Dread Curse spell, that the Greater bonewalker uses, depletes Strength and has a permanent drain strength effect. If given sufficient time, the Greater Bonewalker can drain strength to 0, leaving the Nerevarine only able to carry a maximum of 5 weight. One way to counteract the curse is to consume a Restore Strength potion.
