Welcome,

this comprehensive thread discusses the mechanics of the Old School Runescape combat system.

The posts below contain an elaborate explanation of how combat skills work in Runescape and how the game uses skill stats with equipment and various bonuses to calculate damage output. I recommend the use of a spreadsheet or some sort of advanced calculator to complete the steps. I've made a google spreadsheet myself, the link is publicly available and can be found on my twitter (see signature below).

Credits:

The maximum hit formula below is largely based on the original maximum hit formula thread by Obliv from back in 2007. I've taken the liberty of updating it for Old School Runescape.

Also thanks to the following players for their contributions, corrections and suggestions to this thread:

Feel free to leave a comment or question, as I'm always looking for feedback and improvements.
