This is the Regular Mode Attack Guide

Attack is a very important skill to those who are a keen to fight. The higher a players Attack level is, the more accurate their attacks will be in melee combat. Another advantage to this skill is that it allows you to wield weapons of stronger materials which often have higher stats and deal greater damage to your enemies. Attack is a fast skill to train here on Grinderscape as it has high experience rates.

Attack Training Styles

Melee weapons vary in their attack styles. Some weapons have four options, with a controlled option, while others have only three options. Players intending to remain a pure with no Defence need to take care when changing attack styles as you may gain unwanted Defence levels.


The Accurate combat style is usually the top left option of the combat interface. Using the accurate style provides an invisible boost to your Attack level.

The Controlled combat style is usually the bottom left option of the combat style interface if there are 4 options, or the top right option if there are 3. Using the controlled style provides an invisible +1 boost to your Attack, Strength and Defence levels. This attack style is only available in some melee weapons.

Attack Experience

When you reach level 92 in Attack the experience rate is halved per point of damage.

Getting Basic Weapons

You can start at Edgeville. Inside ::shops you will the melee store which sells some basic weapons.


Where to Train

Use the command ::train to get quick access to training teleports.

Rock Crab

The best place to start training any combat skill at a low level is at Rock Crabs.

Here you will find the Rock crabs that can be killed in order to start levelling up your combat stats. Start killing these until you feel you have a high enough Attack level to move on to killing other monsters such as Hill Giants, in Edgeville Dungeon or Yaks on Neitiznot (South).


For players with higher levels, the best place train would be at the Bandits Camp, located in the desert.

Here you will find a large amount of Bandits that will automatically attack anyone who is wearing Saradomin or Zamorak equipment, allowing for easy AFK experience.
An easy god item to obtain are the god capes from the mage bank. To get these simply teleport to the mage bank, in the 'Player Killing' category, when you arive, enter the pool and then follow the path north. Pray at one of the three statues, if you got the Guthix cape, choose another statue.
Once you have a Zamorak/Saradomin item, simply wear it and the bandits will attack you.


If you are planning on training all your skills, it might help to do slayer at the same time as training combat. You can find a Slayer guide here.
