The Combat HQ has been updated with tantalising teasers of buffs and weaknesses, and how they’ll behave in the new combat system!
Buffs and Weaknesses have existed in RuneScape for a long time; we’ve had potions from Herblore, and plenty of stuns and binds from Magic abilities. However, with the addition of a wide variety of new abilities there are plenty more that you’ll want to keep an eye on. The Evolution of Combat will see a new interface showing buffs and weaknesses not only on yourself, but also for your current target or foe. With so many effects - such as damage-over-time, temporary damage boosts, and many more - you're going to need it!
There’ll also be changes to a whole host of RuneScape inhabitants to ensure that when a creature is weak to fire damage or stronger against ranged attacks, for example, it will have a more significant effect - particularly on your combat style and equipment setup. To find out more about these exciting changes, head over to the Combat HQ.
