    Runescape strength bonuses are one of the most important factors to get very high hits against any monster or opponent you may be fighting. For strength training, you want to wield items which increase strength bonuses. The best Runescape strength bonus items range from weapons to gloves.

    Runescape Strength Weapons

    The best Runescape strength bonus items are the Runescape strength weapons. The best Runescape strength weapon is the Saradomin sword, which gives 82 strength bonus and two prayer bonus, when wielding the sword. Although the weapon is the ideal weapon for fast Runescape strength training, it comes with a heafty price tag of around $8 million gb.

    As many Runescape players can't afford the Saradomin sword, the next best Runescape strength weapon is the dragon scimitar. The dragon scimitar gives 66 strength bonus and has a very quick attack. In order to wield the dragon scimitar and use it for strength training, one must complete the Monkey Madness quest. This is also a great wepon for training defence, as featured in the 99 Defence Guide.
