Hey, what is (in your opinion) the best weapon to train Strength fast with (in terms of xp/hour) ?

Here are some examples but you might add some if you prefer:

Dragon Scimitar
Dragon Longsword
Anchor
Sara Sword
Bandos Godsword
Dharoking (at lvl 167 monkeys)
Dragon Spear


Other: Please state.

Thank you ^_^

I perfer to train with the whip on controlled, it gives the same xp as the other styles just spread over 3 skills. It's perfect for the balanced meleer

It is not the weapon that will limit your XP per hour, it is the place you use to train. You can use the best equipment in the game but if you train on the wrong monster, you will not optimize your XP per hour.

Do you want to burn gp like it was going out of style? Do you mind no drops? Are you going for 100k xp or 1 mil xp? Do you want to maximize your overall XP per hour?

One of the very underutilized tools in the game are things like super strs and atts, even normal increase you stats +12%, so using them will give you an added 10% XP per hour. Fighting next to an alter, like on monkey isl, and praying ultimate str and att prayers will also increase your XP per hour by 15%. No weapon offers a 25% better XP per hour like the other related things would, well unless you were trying to compare training with a rune weapon and a drag weapon, but that is beside the point.

I like Kamakiri's idea. I kind of agree with you about that.

You fail to mention that if you were using an iron sword that you'd gain barely any xp..
You make a very good point but this only works if used with a decent weapon..

Uh... That was kind of the ENTIRE POINT of my last sentence there.

My favorite is Dragon Schimmy. My second favorite would be Sara Sword. (Even though it is slow)

Dragon Schimmy if you are just training strength. But it feels slow when your used to using a whip. I'd go along with training on controlled using the whip. It might seem slow to gain a level but when you do reach a level it should be for all three combat skills.

I would say umm Bando's god sword!! hands down but I don't have one so all I can say for not ubber high levels/rich people just use a dragon skimmy. that what I do when I need to train strength.

and if I'm not trying to get a strength level asap I use share attack with my whip. good for all combat skills.

Use keris dagger on kalphites, prefferably the soldiers (lvl 85). The Keris dagger is like any other dagger but it can be poisoned AND has a special effect (unpredictable timing like barrows special effects) where you hit 3 times as much as you would normally hit on kalphites (so if you hit a 20, you would hit a 60!). What is more, it is as strong as a dragon scimitar or whip but only on kalphites.
There is a guide about Keris here.


+ a picture of someone hitting 108 with it on a kalphite guardian:

I think that the Saradomin sword is the best for training strength. It's as strong, fast, and accurate as a whip, but can fully train strength. But because you can't use a shield with it, I just use a whip on controlled.

I think bandos godsword works the best for me. It would be fastest xp with salve ammy(e), bgs, torso, and all other str boosting armour while training on ankous or mummies etc.
