Combat level refers to the level derived from the skills that deal with fighting. There is a formula to calculate combat level.

  • 1 level in Attack, Strength, Hits or Defense is equal to 1/4 of a combat level
  • 1 level in Ranged is equal to 1/4 of a combat level, however it is balanced out if ranged multiplied by 1.5 is equal to Attack + Strength combined
  • 1 level in Magic or Prayer is equivalent to 1/8 of a combat level

Max Combat

The maximum combat level RuneScape Classic is 123, which is achieved upon gaining level 99 in all of the combat skills, which are Attack, Strength, Defense, Hits, Magic, and Prayer. You only need either 93 Magic or Prayer with 99 in all of the rest to be combat 123.

The combat calculator always rounds down, so you can actually achieve level 123 combat with stats slightly lower than 99 in Attack, Strength, Defense, Hits, Magic and Prayer. Players can reach a combat level of 123 with level 1 in Ranged when Attack and Strength are 99 or with level 1 in Attack and Strength if Ranged is level 99.

On Monster Hostility

Main article: Aggressiveness

Combat level affects what aggressive monsters will attack the player. To make an aggressive monster too afraid to attack the player must be twice its combat level plus one.

On Monster Attack Option


Black Dragons are too high combat level for player to ever get the default left-click Attack option

Monsters have a Talk-to-option as a default (ie. left-click) but after player reaches high a combat level higher than the monster, the default option becomes Attack. This makes it more convenient to initiate fights.

On Player Killing

Combat level plays an important role in the Wilderness, where player-versus-player combat is allowed within limits of players combat level ± Wilderness level. It is also important indication when considering players strength in duelling.
