Every monster and player that has the ability to engage in combat has a combat level. This level summarizes your skill in combat. Your combat consists of:
Your combat level can be Melee, Magic, or Ranged based. The minimum combat level is 3 and the maximum level varies depending on if you are a Member or not - 138 for Members and 126 for Free-to-play players. This is calculated using the following formula:
((Highest result of Attack+Strength, or Magic x2, or Ranged x2) x 13 / 10 + Defence + Constitution + (Prayer / 2) + (Summoning / 2 )) / 4
Rather than using this formula, you can use our Combat Level Calculator to automatically calculate your level for you and how many levels are required to level up.
You may notice that the combat levels of other monsters and players will appear in a color - red, green, yellow, or something in between. Enemies 10 levels or more below you will appear very green. Likewise, if they are 10 levels or more above your combat level, their level will appear very red. If a player or monster is the exact same combat level as you, their level will appear yellow. If the enemy is less than 10 levels below you, their level will appear greenish-yellow, progressing as the level gets lower; enemies above your level will appear orange.
For every monster that you kill, you will be awarded experience split between your selected Combat skill(s) (see below) and Constitution. It is divided between the two as follows:
- Combat experience = Total experience per kill/1.33
- Constitution experience = Combat experience per kill/3
The Combat Mode interface allows you to select which combat skill(s) you wish to train while fighting. This can be opened by selecting the gear on the Right side of your main ability bar that also includes your Life points, Adrenaline, Prayer points, and Summoning points.
All Combat sections allow you to choose either a single combat skill to gain experience in or a combination of two or more skills. When selecting multiple skills, the experience will be split evenly amongst them. The skills offered for each combat style is as follows:
Constitution is automatically trained alongside all combat skills.
In order to be effective at Combat, there are several basic things you need to know about: Action Bar, Adrenaline and Abilities, as well as Combat Modes.
On an action bar there are several different bars and buttons which will affect your combat.
|Action bar||This indicates which action bar you are currently using. By default there are 6 action bars, 4 of which can be on screen at once for Members and 3 for Free-to-Play. You can purchase more action bars, enabling you to have up to 10. This allows you to set up what abilities you will need for different situations, be it chosen simply by combat style or more complex by specific Boss you will encounter. It is also possible to automatically change your action bar depending on the style of weapon you are wielding. These settings can be toggled in the Action Bar section under Combat in your Gameplay Settings.|
|Health||This bar indicates how much health you currently have. The icon at the Left of the bar can be clicked to enable the "Regenerate" Ability. Right-clicking it also give a "Cure Poison" option.|
|Adrenaline||This bar indicates the amount of Adrenaline you have. Note that you will need a certain amount of Adrenaline to queue certain Abilities. For example, Threshold abilities require 50% Adrenaline. You can also click the button to the Left of the bar to toggle your auto-retaliate. 2 Swords (as seen) means that you will attack anyone who attacks you first, while a single sword indicates that you will not retaliate when attacked.|
|Prayer points||This indicates how many Prayer points you currently have. Clicking the icon to the Left will enable you to activate your Quick Prayers, while Right-clicking it will give you the option to set them up. Note that only 2 Quick Prayers can be selected and they must be Prayers, Curses will not work.|
|Summoning Points||This indicates how many Summoning points you currently have. Clicking the icon to the Left offers several options. You will need to Right-click the icon and choose "Select follower interaction" to determine what will occur when you click the icon.|
|Minimize/Maximize||This button can be clicked to minimize the amount of information you see on your action bar; minimized view only displays your Health, Adrenaline, Prayer, and Summoning bars. Right-clicking it will allow you to sheathe/unsheathe weapons.|
|Revolution Hotkeys||If you enable the Revolution Mode of combat, some of your abilities will be encircled by a yellow box. This box indicates which abilities are included in its range. You can choose as few as 1 or as many as all 14 in the Action bar. More on Combat Modes below.|
|Remaining Hotkeys||Any abilities not within the yellow box will not be triggered by Revolution. Regardless of what Combat Mode you choose to fight with, all abilities on your action bar can either be clicked to queue or the Hotkey can be typed to queue. Note that it is suggested to have the "Always-on" feature turned off in your chatbox in order to type the ability hotkeys. Having it on will cause you to type a conversation as opposed to triggering an ability. For most, typing the ability hotkey is faster, easier, and safer than clicking on it with a mouse. This could be the difference between life and death during a fight.|
|Combat Settings||Clicking this button will open specifically the Combat Settings interface. This will enabling you to make adjustments to your Combat Mode, Action bar, Targeting, and Combat XP. Note that other settings can be accessed through here as well.|
|Lock||Clicking this icon will enable you to lock your Action bars in place so that you cannot accidentally move them. Having the icon unlocked (as seen) means that you can relocate them as desired/needed.|
To succeed in combat, you will need to use abilities while fighting. To place an ability on your bar, drag and drop from a book into one of the keybinds. This can either be done with the ability books in a window, or by accessing the Powers tab, seen below.
Once you've assigned an ability to the bar, you can click the icon in it or use the associated hotkey to activate that ability. Hotkeys can be customized within the Control settings.
As you activate abilities in combat, your Adrenaline bar will fill up and allow you to use stronger abilities. The abilities are divided across the three Melee skills, along with Magic, Ranged, and Constitution.
- Basic abilities require no adrenaline and add adrenaline to the bar when activated.
- Threshold abilities require 50% adrenaline. Threshold abilities are reasonably powerful and capable of dispatching most common monsters quickly, however, they will drain your adrenaline rather than add to it.
- Ultimate abilities require 100% adrenaline. These are very powerful abilities and easily capable of killing many monsters in a single hit. Ultimates will completely drain your adrenaline bar when used.
Attack, Strength, Ranged, and Magic abilities are all offensive. Whereas Defence and Constitution abilities are designed to reduce the damage you receive and restore your Life Points.
Three different Combat Modes to choose from. These can be chosen on the Combat Mode tab within your Gameplay settings. This is quickly accessed by clicking the gear on your Action Bar. Each mode enables you to participate in combat various ways.
Full Manual - This combat method requires you to actively choose what abilities you wish to trigger and when. Many PvMers prefer to use this method of combat so that nothing is triggered out of time.
Revolution - This combat method automatically activates abilities you have placed on your current/main Action bar as soon as their cooldown period is over. This means that combat requires less input from you. The amount of ability slots included and what type of abilities (Basic, Threshold, Ultimate) that can be triggered is chosen on the Combat Mode interface.
Legacy - This combat method removes Abilities and makes it closer to the Old School style of Combat. Only Melee special attacks will be available.
Attack level dictates how often you hit an enemy. In short, the higher your Attack level, the more often you hit.
Attack level also dictates what weapons a player can wield. Weapons are what you will use to attack your enemies. Certain Attack levels are required to wield the different kinds of weapons. The higher your Attack level, the stronger weapons you have the ability to wield. To see the stats of individual weapons, please use the Items Database.

Armor is a vital part of combat. It protects you from attacks and, depending on the class, it can increase your damage. Armor comes in two main classes: Tank and Power. Tank armor generally has a very high Armor rating and Life points bonus, whereas Power armor has a moderate Armor rating and Life points bonus, but makes up for this with a Damage bonus. To see the stats of individual weapons, please use the Items Database.

When fighting another player or monster, you will notice red or blue "splats" will appear on you and your opponent when hit. The number inside the "splat" indicates how many Life Points have been taken. Note that the splat colors can be changed within the Targeting section of your Gameplay Settings.
Your base number of Life Points is your Constitution level x 100. So for example, at level 99 you will have 9900 Life Points while wearing nothing. Some armor, such as the Ports armor, has an associated Life bonus which will increase your base Life Points when worn. Once you reach 0 Life Points, you will die, and reappear within Death's office.
Here you will be able to purchase back any items that you were wearing and holding when killed - items within a Beast of burden cannot be purchased back. You can also choose to not purchase your items and run back to the location you died to retrieve them, however, they will only stay there for so long and someone can pick them up as well.
The only exception to this is if you die in the Wilderness. If this is where you meet your demise, at most you will be able to keep 5 items while the rest go to your killer, or drop on the floor if you die to a monster. Typically 3 items will be kept, but it can be boosted with use of the "Protect item" Prayer, Portent of item protection, and/or Sign of item protection. If you are the person who initiated the attack against another player and you are killed, you will lose EVERYTHING.
When you take damage, your Life points will slowly restore themselves over time. Alternatively, you can heal yourself much faster by eating or drinking a wide variety of food and potions, as well as using spells, abilities, and resting. The amount that food heals depends on the Cooking level required to cook the food and your Constitution level. To receive the full Life Points restoration, you must have a Constitution level equal to or higher than the level required to cook the food. For example, you will need level 40 Constitution to heal the full 800 Life Points from a Lobster. Standing within range at a bank booth or Grand Exchange counter will also restore your Life Points.
Using abilities such as: Regenerate, Guthix's Blessing, and/or Ice Asylum can save you a huge amount of food. If used correctly, you can last a significantly longer time fighting the same monster, or even stay there indefinitely.
Depending on your Constitution level, certain abilities will be available for you to use.
