A temporary skill boost is anything caused by an item or action that temporarily raises a player's level in one or more skills. It allows the player to do things above their current level. For example, a Dwarven Stout, which boosts a player's mining and smithing level by one, will let the player enter the Mining Guild (which requires 60 Mining) with a Mining level of 59.

Temporary boosts do not stack - for example, an Asgarnian Ale provides +2 Strength, and a Strength Potion provides 10% + 3 to the same skill; using them together will not produce 10% + 5, but keep the 10% + 3, as that is the maximum boost.

UsesEdit

  • Entering a guild that requires a certain skill level, such as drinking a dwarven stout to enter the Mining Guild.
  • Doing an action that requires a higher level than the player is currently at, such as using a Fishing Potion to fish sharks.
  • Meeting the skill requirements to finish off quests, such as Fishing Contest. Players should note that temporary boosts may not work on all quests.
  • Having a better experience rate in skills since a better level reduces the player's failure rate.
