Today i decided to train on rock crabs to prove that a longsword is better than a scimitar (rune long vs. rune skim.)
1 hour of my skim got me exactly 10923 strength exp. My highest hit was 14.
1 hour of my longsword got me exactly 13524 strength exp. My highest hit was 17.
And i also used my beloved battleaxe, Ol' Nellie (yes, i named my battleaxe), so here is my result:
1 hour of Ol' Nellie, my battleaxe, got me exactly 17263 exp. My highest hit was 23.
So here is the overall result:
Battleaxe> Longsword> Scimitar
17263> 13524> 10923
23> 18> 14
Ol' Nellie you've done it again!
Did you gain any levels throughout this?
I gained 2 strength levels, so now i have 59. Sadly, i did not gain any combat levels.
It is only faster by 1, and if you are comparing their stats, the scimitar is inferior to the longsword.
Scimitar is definitely way better than longsword... anyone with basic knowledge of Runescape should know this >.>
Battleaxe> longsword> scimitar> shortsword> dagger
