There are many skills and over one hundred quests you can do in Runescape – you can make many new friends and have Runescape adventures with your friends. This guide talks about one of the most important features of the game.
Best Runescape Weapons
What people perceive to be the “best Runescape weapons” largely comes down to personal preference and also depends on how much you play Runescape training your combat and what sort of stats your characters has which can vary greatly from player to player. More attacks and weapons can be used the higher your level in a particular combat skill. Let’s start with melee:
Runescape Melee Weapons
First time fighters will have level one attack. This is the only skill required for wielding weapons, but people try to raise their strength, or they will only hit low amounts of damage. At level one attack you can wield only bronze and iron weapons. Both are very inexpensive, but at the same time are not very good weapons.
Runescape Range Weapons
Range is the simplest combat form, the least expensive, and the fastest and most accurate. All you need is a bow and arrows and it requires two hands. At different levels of range you can use different bows and arrows. There are long bows and short bows. Short bows are preferred as they are faster and more lightweight while the longbow can shoot farther distances. There are also crossbows and their bolts which I will go over later.
Runescape Magic Weapons
Probably the most favored combat skill for player-killing and quite complex for the game of Runescape. While magic can be used for fighting, it can also be used for other uses such as teleporting, changing the appearance of some items, helping others, and much more! While there are no magic level requirements for using different magical objects, you need magic levels to use different spells. Since this guide is about combat and weapons, we will only go over spells and items that can be used to fight:
Runescape Special Weapons – Dragon Weapons
Dragon weapons, and almost all special weapons, are P2P only. All Dragon weapons require a quest to acquire them and level 60 attack to equip them. They are red in color and have their own special attacks. Special attacks can be used by clicking the fighting style menu and highlighting the green bar at the bottom. When in combat, you will use that items special ability and drain part of your special energy bar. When your bar is empty, special attacks can no longer be used until the bar has recharged.
Other special Runescape weapons include:
Abbysal Whip – transfers 10% of your opponents energy to you.
Granite Maul – Instantly attacks enemy even if you just attacked them
Excalibur – Raises your defense temporarily by 10%
Seercullbow – Inflicts damage plus reduces the magic level by the number of damage inflicted
Darklight – Reduces an opponent’s attack, strength, and defense
Magic Longbow- An accurate shot that will definitely inflict damage
Magic Shortbow – Two quick arrow shots, but will hit with less accuracy
Crystal Bow – Does not have a special attack but is 80% more accurate than a magic longbow and hits higher than rune arrows and it does not use ammo
Rune Throwing Axes – Will hit many enemies in a multi-combat zone
Rune Claws – Temporarily increases strength and attack for that hit, but slower
Rod of Ivandis – Captures a Vampyre Juvinate that has low health (1/3), allowing you to use a Guthix Balance potion on it
Bone Dagger – Lowers opponents defence by the amount of damage you inflict. Has a very good chance of hitting an unsuspecting opponent
Dorgeshuun Crossbow – Same as bone dagger
