How to Raise Your Combat Level in Runescape

By Shirley Huang2017-04-19

Combat level is very important in Runescape. All players start playing runescape from combat level 3, and the maximum combat level is 138. Combat level is calculated by taking into account the following skills:

Attack and Strength, Ranged or Magic




Summoning (not applied toward combat level in free worlds)

Raising your combat level is not easy, and it may be boring for some players. Here MmoGah would like to share some important information with you about Attack, Strength and Defense.


Attack level is very important in Rs. Attack is a melee combat skill which determines the accuracy of your melee attacks and the types of weapons you may wield. The higher Attack level you are, the fewer losses will occur during the melee combat. When you slay an enemy, you are awarded Attack and Constitution experience, depending on the opponent's stats.


- Start out by killing cows for cash

It should be pretty easy to do. Once you have a full stock of cowhides, you should sell them, and then buy full iron.

- When you get 10 attack points, you should purchase a black long sword and then train cows. Repeat this process until you have 20 attack points. Buy a mithril scimitar, if you are not rich, pick up a cow's hide and tan it. Then start training monks. Keep on doing this until you have 30 attack points.

- Train Haakon and barbarians (level 15-17)

Keep on doing this until you can wear adamant. A good way to get enough money to buy adamant is to sell normal logs for 77 gold piece.
- Train hill giants

Keep on doing this until you have 60 attack points. Now you are available to sell rune weapons and dragon weapons.

- Train Prayer skill

Prayer is a skill which grants the player specialized buffs in combat by evoking the power of the dead. All players start with limited access to the Prayer skill. As your Prayer level increases, you will gain access to new Prayer.

Prayer skill is currently one of the quickest skills to achieve skill mastery, since it is possible to reach level 99 in just a few days by using the appropriate bones and methods.

- Train Slayer

Slayer is a skill for members, which enables players to kill monsters that are immune to damage.

Players get a Slayer task from one of eight Slayer Masters and then gain Slayer experience for killing monsters. The current minimum requirement of Slayer to be ranked is level 15. 

Keep on training them until you reach level 90. Attack experiments are useful, since you can get more HP. 


Strength Training

Strength is one of the most popular skills among players.

It is a melee combat skill which increases a player's the amount of damage, and it can inflict in melee combat by two and a half points per level. Players may receive Strength experience during the combat. 

Improve your equipment as you go. If you use a lot of food or consumable items, you probably need better equipment. You may need to take a break from leveling to craft or buy runescape gold to increase weapons and armors.

If you’re still having trouble, you can look up the monster’s weakness online or communicate with other players. Take a slashing, crushing and stabbing weapon with you, and switch between them during the combat.


Training Defense

Defense is one of the primary combat skills that grants players protection in all forms of combat. Defense will raise a player's combat level. The current minimum requirement to be ranked is level 15.

The higher Defense level you are, the fewer attacks you will get from opponents. Defense is a vital skill of enduring attacks for a long period of time, and it can be extremely helpful against opponents with high Attack, Ranged, Magic or powerful Summoning familiars.

A player's Defense level also determines which equipment the player is able to wear, since most armors and equipment require certain Defense level.

Defense can be trained in combat by using any of the three combat styles: Magic, Melee or Ranged.


Experience rewards

Players can get Defense experience as a reward for completing certain quests. There are lots of quests that allow players to choose the skills. Players can also trade points gained in certain mini games for experience in Defense level.

Skill mastery

After achieving Defense level 99, players can buy the defense cape from Harlan who in the building north of the Lumbridge general store. The defense cape is light blue in color, and it has a cream trim for players who have more than level 99 skills.
