Hey all,

Possible stupid question but from playing Rs with EoC as a f2p player, does strength really matter anymore? From my experience, correct me if this is invalid, it appears all it does is add your strength level to the damage. I know in f2p it might matter more but with p2p weapons hitting much much higher than a rune 2h's 1200 weapon strength, should training attack be more viable instead of strength? Thanks for the discussion!

There isn't anything wrong with training both Attack and Strength  but I feel that the system where Attack give more accuracy and Strength allows you to hit more is still there.

I would also be interested in knowing the impact of strength on hits. If the only impact of strength is to raise your maximum and average hits by a point per level, it hardly seems worth it beyond unlocking strength abilities.

I don't see any conclusive research on the matter from XP-Waste.

I'm not sure where I heard it from but do higher strength levels increase crit chance or is that strictly gear based?

This I highly doubt. I don't think there is much someone can do in terms of testing, but like No1 said, I'm curious to see what will happen.

The test would be simple enough; finding people to do it would not.

We would need two people with identical attack but differing strength levels. (Any difference would do, but preferably 99 vs. 70 or lower.) Record 500-1000 consecutive hits with the same (high-lp) monster and weapon using no abilities, momentum, equipment, boosts, or familiars. Repeat with a different weapon. Statistical analysis of the hit sets should make the answer pretty obvious.

I hadn't thought of that, but not reliable for testing purposes because of the degrading stats. You would have to keep potting pretty regularly. That could conceivably answer the question of "does strength impact hits significantly?", but not "how much does strength impact hits?".
