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.






How so? Training strength with a saradomin sword would surely not gain you as much xp/hr as using a whip/defender. Training controlled gives 1.333xp/damage, which rounds up to 4xp/damage. Just interested :P

You get defense experience faster at 99 attack and strength than you do at 90 attack and strength, and I'm pretty sure that experience values don't round(or at least not to whole numbers) because I know that at least summoning and prayer don't.

WHIP IS BEST WEAPON IN THE GAME. :thumbsup: Can be used for many, many things.


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.




its called he emphasized the point, the whip is the best hands down. sara sword is worth nothing.



seriously, buy a whip, train on controlled while doing slayer. sara swords are not worth it, as you cant wield a rune defender or w/e shield you want to wield.



and a whip is one handed smart one =D>

sorry for double post, but i didnt want to be quoting and commenting twice in the same post



training 99s on controlled is faster,

training with a sara sword would be taking away +19 slash for all of 99 str, thats...8m xp from 90? whip is just a better weapon hands down
