Where Do You Get an Axe In RS?
Battleaxes are a great weapon to use if you are about to battle a heavily armored opponent and can be bought from the Grand Exchange for anywhere between 15 coins for the basic Bronze Battleaxe to 120,800 coins for the Dragon Battleaxe. The main advantage of the battleaxe over the two-handed sword in terms of battle abilities is that the battleaxe is a one-handed weapon, meaning that you can combine it with a shield for added defense and to gain any stat bonuses that the shield would convey.
Though the battleaxe is one of the slower weapons in the game, it is also among the hardest hitters. In terms of strength, they come second to two-handed swords, but have a decent slash attack and an acceptable crushing secondary attack.
One of the drawbacks of the battleaxe is that it gives the target a lot of time to recover between strikes, meaning that a swifter foe will be able to strike you twice for every one time you hit. So, naturally, the key to wielding the battleaxe effectively would be to make every hit count. Keep in mind that accuracy is the key to this weapon over strength, though, so you need to ensure that you have a pretty good attack level.
Also always keep in mind that the battle-ax is one-handed, so you can always pick up a decent shield to supplement your defense if you feel like your opponent is still getting one too many strikes in. If you feel like buying this weapon, you can always head to Brian's Battleaxe Bazaar in Port Sarim, or Bob's Brilliant Axes in Lumbridge, if you are looking for an in-game store, and there is always the ever-available Grand Exchange.
