Combat level

A player attacking a man.

Attack is a melee combat skill in RuneScape Classic that determines the accuracy of the player's melee attacks. Having a higher attack level will allow players to hit more frequently on their opponent.

Combat selector

To train attack, pick the accurate option

The amount of attack experience gained while in Accurate stance can be found using this formula: $ 3 \times H = Experience $

While in Controlled stance, the experience is divided between the three skills (Attack, Strength, and Defense), so you instead use this formula: $ H = Experience $

In both cases, H = the amount of Hits experience received from the kill. This is different for each opponent, and unlike in RuneScape 2, is unrelated to the opponents' Hits.


As players gain attack levels, they are able to use better weapons that allow them to inflict damage more frequently. Better weapons have higher WeaponAim and WeaponPower bonuses meaning that players are not only able to hit more often but can also inflict more damage.
