Special attackEdit

Rampage

A player using the dragon battleaxe's special attack, Rampage.

The dragon battleaxe has a special attack, Rampage; when toggled, the player character immediately hefts the weapon above their head, consuming 100% of their special attack energy. This drains the player's Attack, Defence, Ranged, and Magic levels by 10%, while increasing their Strength level by [10 + (levels drained / 4)]. The strength boost is comparable to that of a super strength potion. However, depending on the player's combat levels and preexisting boosts, it can raise strength by up to +21.

This accounts for the popularity of this weapon; although it is seldom used in combat, it is entirely possible to use Rampage for a strength boost and then revert to a primary melee weapon. The drained stats can be recovered using a restore potion.

Alternatively, drinking from a fancy/ornate rejuvenation pool eliminates the hefty stat penalties and special energy cost of Rampage while retaining the strength boost.

Trivia Edit

  • The dragon battleaxe is popularly used in lieu of strength potions in the Pest Control minigame, as the player's special attack meter is refilled along with their health, prayer points and run energy at the conclusion of each game.
  • With the highest possible levels and boosts, 120/99 Strength is achieved using this weapon's special attack.
