Actually, the Rare Battleaxe gives the best exp for Strength. Mixed with a decent attack and the Necklace Of Knowledge, you'll be racking up experience.
Lol that's a given. I'm talking about getting to the Rare Battleaxe. If you're using a claymore, it will take far more time then the Tit B'axe just to get to the rare battle axe. That's my main point.
You are completely right though.
