Knock-out is an aura available as part of the Members Loyalty Programme and can be purchased from Xuan in Burthorpe, for 3,500 Membership Loyalty Points. Upon its release, it was on sale for 400 points instead of 3,500. This aura guarantees a finishing blow on an opponent if it is near death if the attack scores a hit. A miss will not cause any damage, nor will it deliver the kill. This means that a "guaranteed" finishing blow doesn't mean you are assured a hit when the enemy is near death. It has an activation period of 1 hour and a recharge time of 4 hours. Destroying and retrieving the aura will reset its recharge period back to 4 hours. As with all auras, it automatically deactivates upon being unequipped and like most combat enhancing auras; it does not work in PvP. Also, as with all auras, if the account using it is logged out while the aura is activated, the timer will continue to run out.
"Near death" is defined as 10% of the maximum lifepoints of the monster, but is limited to when there are around 100 lifepoints remaining. When the aura triggers then it emits a blue-white flash around the player.
While the aura is active, any successful hit will be increased to kill the monster as long as its LP is low enough. Also, using a special attack may nullify the guaranteed killing blow, but it is possible to use knock-out with the special attack's effect, such as dragon claws. However, the special attack will be increased by up to 100 damage instead of adding the damage onto the last hit.
Note: It's important to note that people have found the knock-out aura does not work with high level npcs such as General Graardor, Nex, the Corporeal Beast and the King Black Dragon, however it does work on Bork & Jad.
Master knock-out (tier 3)Edit
Master knock-out is a tier-3 aura that can be bought from the Loyalty Programme Shop for 50,000 Membership Loyalty Points, but only after the standard Knock-out aura is purchased. The aura will remain activated for 1 hour and has a recharge time of 4 hours.
Upon activation, it will guarantee a finishing blow to an enemy in combat when the enemy is near death. This effect will not work in player vs player combat.
"Near death" is defined as 10% of the maximum lifepoints of the monster, but is limited to when there are around 200 lifepoints remaining. When the aura triggers then it emits a blue-white flash around the player.

This aura is usable for all three styles of combat, and will activate under normal conditions regardless of the style of combat used.
- When you activate it and log on to an F2P world you will still see the blue flash around your player when you kill an NPC.
- The knock-out aura does not work with a Balmung.
- The knock-out aura doesn't work when firing with a Dwarf multicannon. Only the hits of the player will be affected, not those of the cannon nor do hits from familiars.
- There also is no Greater Knock-out aura, which makes this aura unique.
