Strategy

Relying on STR is more effective in dealing high damage than relying on the high % crits dexterity provides or than relying on the increased number of turns speed provides.
Therefore a high STR tank will deal more damage than a criter and a strength-based-DW will deal more damage than a dex-based-DW or a speed-based-dw
Nevertheless But the 2 other strat├ęgies have other pros.

STR is especially important when dealing with high-vitality glads. Also if you expect to be screamed at a lot it can be redeeming to be able to take a head off with one critical strong attack.
