I'm writing a walkthrough for a video game I really enjoy and I came to a point where there is a system that you can change the "power level" of monsters. It goes up and down, 0 - 1 - 2 - 3 - ect...

In my guide I wrote:

Increase/Decrease monster power level. I will explain more later in the guide (...)

I want (don't need to) put it into 1 word. It might be really simple and I just need some rest to get my mind functioning. If you could help, That'd be nice!
