To get your strength leveled up fast, there are a few techniques you can use.
Believe it or not, there are many players who haven’t trained strength to its full potential. This may seem surprising, given that it determines how much damage you do to your enemies. That said, it can take a long time to make your way up to 99 in Old School Runescape, though there are some quicker methods for you to use if you wish, though you might need to prepare to part with your hard-earned OSRS gold in some cases.
For the first 40 levels, we are going to be using scimitars. Specifically, the Rune Scimitar is a fantastic way to train strength when you are starting out. You will need to have a level 40 attack to use it, though it won’t cost you much OSRS GP to get your very own.
If you are a member, then you can also take advantage of the Brine Sabre. You are better off using this if you have the option to, since you can get strength and slash bonuses from it. However, it does cost a lot more than the alternative, so you might be wanted consider finding some cheap OSRS gold for sale so you can get to level 40 as fast as possible.
Get your attack level up to 50, as well as your strength, and you will then have the ability to use granite weapons. If you have a level 55 slayer, then you could consider using the leaf-bladed sword. Or, you could opt to use the granite hammer, which is arguably the best weapon you can use in this instance. You may need to consider going to buy OSRS gold since this weapon can be rather expensive.
Then, from level 60 you have the chance to start utilizing dragon weapons. A good choice at this point would be to use the dragon scimitar. So far, we have been discussing weapons that have actually been more expensive than usual, but in this case, we are actually looking at a rather cheap alternative. This is why so many higher-level players are using the dragon scimitar, because it is cost effective and generally very useful.
You could choose the dragon sword which is a pretty good weapons to go with as well. It is the second-best choice that you can go for, though it does have weaker bonuses and will cost more OSRS GP. For a cheaper alternative you have the dragon longsword, but it has fewer ticks that the dragon scimitar overall.
When you have reached 70 in Strength, the Sardomin Sword is a great choice. It isn’t going to cost you too much OSRS gold as you would with the likes of the Twisted Bow. Any low defence enemies will have a hard time against you when you are using this weapon. If you are up against enemies that are weak to crush weapons, then you could always go with the Abyssal Bludgeon as well.
At this stage, you also have the option to use the Abyssal Whip. When you’re at the point of being at level 70 in attack and defence, and you are training with shared XP, then this weapon is one of the strongest weapons you can use. It doesn’t degrade for attack or defence either, though you shouldn’t use it if you are only training strength.
Level 75 and Beyond
Reaching level 75 does allow you to branch out to a few decent choices of OSRS weapons to use. The Ghrazi Rapier is the best melee weapon in OSRS for training, and you can use it at level 75 attack. That said, it is going to cost you a lot of OSRS GP, and is hard to afford for a lot of players. A cheaper choice would be to use the Abyssal Tentacle, though it does degrade.
A third choice would be the Staff of the Dead. For slashing, this is a very useful weapon, and it has higher accuracy than the Saradomin Sword with a defender. However, it doesn’t quite have the strength that the sword has. If you are going to use it, then it’s best to use it against enemies that have a high defence.
These are all very useful weapons you can use when you are leveling up strength. Just be aware that there are some expensive choices for you to go through when it comes to the weapons you need. So get some OSRS gold saved up and start the grind through to 99.
