This article or section is incomplete and could do with improvement.
Reason: Missing obscure buffs/debuffs (e.g. Shattered Worlds); need more info and images on certain buffs; Sorting them out as they are classified in game. Also needs the new buffs as of 4 December 2017 patch notes and the 10 April 2017 additions.
You can discuss this issue on the talk page or edit this page to improve it.

Buffs and debuffs are changes to an individual's skill levels and other abilities. They include activated prayers. A positive change is called a buff and a negative change a debuff. They are seen as status icons on the Buff Bar and Debuff Bar gameplay HUDs, respectively, which can be moved around, although they cannot be resized. These interfaces may only show a total of 18 buffs and 12 debuffs at once. In Legacy Mode, they can be viewed from the attack styles panel by right-clicking on the weakness icon next to the weapon name.

Category[edit | edit source]

The different categories of buffs and debuffs one can choose to toggle

Buffs are categorised under game settings as:

  • Boss-specific
  • Boosts
  • Potions
  • Prayers
  • Overhead prayers
  • Offensive abilities
  • Defensive abilities
  • Item effects
  • Pet effects
  • Auras
  • Status effects
  • Skilling
  • Invention Perks

These categories can be toggled on/off independently. These do not toggle off icons that already appear above NPCs. If toggling does not seem to affect an icon, try either checking other settings or reequipping an item.

Priority[edit | edit source]

Priority is a number associated with each buff. A buff with higher priority (greater numerical value) will appear closer to the start (top left) of the buff or debuff bar than a buff with lower priority. The priority of a buff isn't visible in game but is present in the game's cache files.

Boss-specific[edit | edit source]

Boosts[edit | edit source]

Others[edit | edit source]

These are other things that are not directly stat related at a glance, but are categorised as boosts.

Potions[edit | edit source]

Prayer[edit | edit source]

These are the prayers which do not give an overhead icon above the player.

Normal prayers[edit | edit source]

    • Over time, if your stats have been reduced or raised, most of them restore slowly back towards their default levels.

We've now fixed it so that your stats will restore normally even if you have an interface open.
