sara sword isnt a god sword, and i personally would get the whip, cause its cheap, and great for training.

zammy spear you probably wont be able to get cause its rising and people are junk trading 3mill for it.

and the sara sword is only good if your training strength.

Whip is best if u want a usual training weapon.



SS is good for Waterfiends



Z Spear is good for Corporeal Beat+Waterfiends



Whip is excellent

So what did you contribute? Exactly.





Whip and SS are the same thing, and Im not sure about zammy spear, but, I dont think its really worth it.

SS is good since it has a str option, but, two handed, and a decent special.

Whip is good since its cheap, and still effective, two handed, but no strength and shotty special.

Fine, but I thought that I should emphasize that in general, no weapon comes close to the whip.



Godsword - Too slow

SS - Two handed

Zammy spear - Too weak



(No, the str options doesn't make it any better. Controlled is the answer)

SS is best for training strength because its the same as a whip but two handed. All round in say castle wars, fight pits ect you'd want a whip because you can have a shield aswel. Eg. Rune defender, Obby Shield.

99 Strength Achieved 26/9/08. L0L in 3 years I've made 7m. In the past 2 days I've made 7.2m on top of that thanks to Bounty Hunter. So why play for 3 years when you can do that?

z spear is the most versatile. It'll never fail you.

Saradomin Sword

Great for waterfiends+best weapon to level STR with.



Disadvantage: 2handed. I personally find it bad for leveling strength, as a shield +scimitar is better. But it is great for waterfiends. Gives+2 prayer.



Abyssal Whip

This weapon will be your most used weapon in whole Runescape ;)



Works at bosses (GWD+Dagannoth Kings)+Dueling+Training and other things that i don't know of.



It's also very cheap weapon: it should be worth 2m if you ask me. Great weapon.



Advantage: 1 handed. So if you use it+god book/Brodooshield you will get +5 prayer bonus. This is good for praying and beats Saradomin Swords +2 prayer bonus.



Zamorak Spear

Good weapon that works well at waterfiends just like ss, and is used for killing Corporeal Beast. Cause of Corporeal Beast: it has gone up in price by 2m+.



Disadvantage: 2 handed.



Godswords

These are mostly good for bosses: and is in no way good for training. It dosen't beat whip at many things.

whip for sure, its the best weapon in the game hands down.

Zammy spear is only controlled or def training. Sara sword is 2h whip.



Get the whip

People suggest the whip with good reason. Unless you are planning to camp at Waterfiends, it is the most powerful and versatile weapon in the game in that price range.

If whips cost 1000 million gp, they would still be the best. Cost isn't a factor, it's hands down the best weapon, and even comes at a cheap price.

ss is for training str if you dont use whip on controlled because its better then d scim. Its also used as a crush weapon at waterfiends



Zammy spear is only used as a crush weapon at waterfiends, and now at the beast. It trains controlled



Whip is best training weapon ever. Get a whip

Training from 90 to 99 attack with a whip, 90 to 99 strength with a sara sword, and then 90 to 99 defense with a whip would be faster than 90 to 99 in all stats on controlled with a whip, which exposes the generally failure of controlled training.
