Overview[edit | edit source]

Attack, Strength, and Defence are all trained in similar ways through combat. Strength can be trained slowly through barbarian fishing, and Defence can also be trained with Ranged or Magic while on the defensive combat style.

The tier 3 and tier 6 relics are combat related.

Fluid Strikes interactions (T3 Melee Relic)[edit | edit source]

Fluid Strikes has the effect "The attack speed of all melee weapons is halved (rounded up)."

Rounded up is important here, this means that any weapon with uneven attack speed (Notably Dragon longsword, Granite maul, Dharok's greataxe, Dragon 2h sword, Scythe of vitur and Crystal halberd) gains less than 100% increased attack speed of Fluid Strikes; only 66% and 75% for 5/7 tick attack speed respectively.

As such in ex. a comparison of damage between a Dragon longsword and a Dragon scimitar the Dragon scimitar has 50% faster attack speed, compared to the normal 25% faster attack speed. (5/4 to 3/2)

In effect this means that for DPS output, weapons with uneven tick attack speed is always significantly worse and should be avoided if possible.

Notable gear by region[edit | edit source]

Regions in the required column are always required. However, only one of the optional regions is required.
