Strength is a Combat skill, and is used alongside Attack for Melee combat. The Strength skill increases the player's Max Hit when using any Melee attack style. Max Hit determines the maximum potential damage which can be dealt on a successful attack before accounting for Damage Reduction.

Strength experience can be earned by using the Slash attack style in combat. 0.4 XP is awarded per point of damage done to enemies. Fishing in the Barbarian Fishing area grants Strength experience as well, making it the only Melee skill that can be advanced outside of combat.
