UPDATE:The official Tiers of Godhood as revealed in Runefest 2013 by Mod Ollie, is now on this thread, all information on this thread has been confirmed.
UPDATE:There is now confirmed to be a Tiers of Mahjarrat scale, not too dissimilar to the tiers of Godhood. If you like comparing power levels, you may enjoy this thread for the Mahjarrat, by Lumen Vector.
If you're a newcomer to this thread, the Seven Tiers of Godhood was originally revealed to be a scale of the god's power levels, something for the Jagex mods to use when using these gods in content.
It was first revealed here in Mod Osborne's Lore Campfire. Well, one of them anyway - there's multiple now.
First off, this does not mean if a god on a higher tier fights a lower tier, that the higher tier would necessarily automatically win. As an adventurer, I'm sure you've fought many things that are more powerful than you, but it was your skill and cunning that brought you to be the victor. Power is still an advantage, and a relevant thing to keep track of, though.
Secondly, there are tiers within a tier, like two gods on the same tier don't have to have the same amount of power. You can rise within the tiers and not actually advance a whole tier of power.
Thirdly, the tiers of the gods have changed over the ages, and will likely continue to change. Especially when gods are scavenging Guthix's lost power, and getting beaten in battles and whatnot.
The tiers of godhood go from 7 to 1, with Tier 1 being the most powerful - Home to exclusively Elder Gods at this moment. Tier 7 being not truly 'gods' but 'honorable mentions', usually beings blessed with divine power, though again, not exclusively - you would be surprised at some of the things confirmed to be tier 7. You can only fully appreciate a story when you experience it through the eyes of one of its characters.
