The god banners were released with the God Emissaries update. A player may select the options of Contact Emissary, Power, and Check Progress. It is used to show a players devotion towards one of the nine factions, and is mainly cosmetic. It is not possible to possess more than one of the nine god banners at a time.
Each banner's cosmetic look will change as the owner completes task sets provided by the chosen god's emissary. Each banner obtains the ability to boost skills for 30 minutes of in-game time based on the set completed. Each of the boosts may be used once per day and wielding the banner is not required for the boost.
Note that only one of the 3 boosts can be active at a time.
Boosts and bonusesEdit
The boost will often decay to 1 level lower than maximum, and it takes about 10 seconds for it to automatically re-boost. If you exit to lobby while the boost is active, and then login again, the boost won't go down until it actually wears off (after the 30 minutes). This is especially useful when using the boost to train a skill, and you want to get the most out of the 30 minutes. However, if you open an interface that stalls stat changes (such as the bank or make-x) the boost will start decaying again.
The boost is kept if the player levels up during the 30 minutes, boosting their level over their new level after a short delay. If the level of the boosted skill is reduced by another factor, such as a spicy stew, the stat will be restored every 10 seconds until the full boost is re-attained.
- Combat boost - temporarily boosts your Attack, Defence, Strength, Ranged and Magic levels by 5.
- Skill boost - temporarily boosts one of your choice in the following skills by 2 levels: Fishing, Mining, Smithing, Runecrafting, Crafting, Woodcutting, Firemaking, Fletching, Construction, Hunter, Thieving, Cooking, Herblore, Farming and Divination.
- Exploration boost - temporarily boosts your Agility level by 5.
Note that other items providing a visible level boost, such as spicy stews or teas in a Player Owned House, will not stack with the banner's effects. As an example, you cannot drink the best tea (+3) and use a +2 banner boost to get a +5 bonus, it will simply default to the stronger or more recent option, in this case +3 for the tea.
