Melee Abilities

Navigation: RuneScape Wiki >> Game Guide >> Interfaces >> Action Windows >> Melee Abilities


The melee abilities interface is an action window. It allows you to view and activate all of the attack- and strength-based abilities that you have access to.

As with the majority of action windows you can adjust its size, swap and dock it with other interfaces, and move it around your game window.

Powers icon

If not visible on the game screen, you can access the melee abilities interface by clicking on the powers icon in the ribbon and going to the Melee tab.

Melee Abilities

Although it can be modified, the first time you see the melee abilities interface, it will likely resemble the image to the right.

All of these abilities can be added to your action bar in any order that you wish.

Spell Details

All of the action windows from the powers interface will allow you to hover over an individual ability or spell to see information about it. Details such as a description of the spell/ability, what requirements it has, how much adrenaline it costs (if any), how many runes it requires (if any), and the cool down time required before you can cast it again.
