Main article: Melee

Strength Strength ultimately determines the amount of damage you can deal to an opponent. With a strong weapon and a high Strength level, you will find yourself able to deal a significant amount of damage to a monster or player!

Strength is required to wield certain weapons and armour, and is a stat required to overcome several Agility grapple shortcuts, is a stat require to do Barbarian Fishing, and is a requirement for several Quests.

Strength is the most common level 99 skill and the skill with the highest minimum requirement to be ranked on the hiscores. The current minimum requirement for strength is 15.

To train Strength, you will need to select 'Attack' from the Combat Settings interface. You can also select 'Balanced' to train all Melee styles (Attack, Strength & Defence) at once.
