Life points are a statistic belonging to every player and monster that determines their current strength in continuing combat. Death occurs when an entity is reduced to 0 life points. All entities with life points slowly heal over time naturally.

All monsters have a predetermined maximum amount of life points. They will slowly regenerate life over time, and most monsters will fully heal immediately if they are out of combat for too long. For players, the maximum amount of life points is determined by their Constitution level. Every level gives 100 life points to the base amount, starting at 1,000 for level 10, and capping at 9,900 with skill mastery. Life points are also given by some higher level armours, granting a permanent increase to maximum for as long as they are worn. Certain foods and potions (such as rocktail) can heal beyond maximum life points, but these extra points will slowly drain over time similar to the natural healing mechanic. A small boost to life points can be gained by stoking a bonfire with 5 logs.

The absolute maximum amount of life points players can have, while temporary, is 17,329. This is derived from:

  • Player health and equipment
  • Boosts
    • Bonfires boost the maximum life points cap by up to 5% of the total life points originating from the Constitution level and worn equipment. This amounts to up to +495 at 99 Constitution Constitution, and an additional +202 (for a total of +697) while wearing the best life point boosting equipment available in Daemonheim - i.e. tier 99 head, body, legs, and shield slot items, in addition to owning the Warped gorajan trailblazer outfit which gives a +3 level boost to Constitution (+300LP) - and then bonfiring inside the dungeon. The boost is re-calculated each time upon bonfiring or logging in, but lasts as long as the current longest initiated timer. This means that you can pre-bonfire to set a long timer, and then enter a dungeon and buy the cheapest logs from the Smuggler to re-calculate the life point boost by bonfiring again. Without using Daemonheim equipment, the highest possible life point boost derived from worn equipment while bonfiring would be +158.
    • The thermal bath, or an Ogre flask (thermal), boosts the maximum life points cap by +3 per Constitution level, for a maximum of +297 at 99 Constitution Constitution.
    • Fortitude increases the maximum life points cap by +10 plus +10 per Constitution level, for a total of +1,000 at 99 Constitution Constitution.
  • Final boost
    • Rocktail soup and Sailfish soup can heal 15% above the maximum life points cap, which is an additional +2,260 assuming the use of Daemonheim equipment while bonfiring, or +2,253 if using only surface equipment.

Healing[edit | edit source]

Lost life points can be recovered, primarily by eating food or drinking certain potions. Being in close vicinity of a banker or banking facility will rapidly heal life points to full. Additionally, the thermal bath in Oo'glog and the Elidinis Statuette in Nardah can completely restore a player's life points as well.

There are also several items, abilities, and pieces of equipment that restore health under certain circumstances such as by manually deploying an item, falling below a health threshold, and gaining life points based on damage inflicted.

Regeneration of life points[edit | edit source]

Natural life point regeneration is equal to 0.1% of your maximum life points every 6 seconds (1% of max LP per minute).

  • Regen bracelet adds 0.2% to the base regeneration.
  • Fortitude curse adds 0.1% to the base regeneration.
  • Constitution skillcape adds 0.1% to the base regeneration.
  • Regeneration aura adds 0.1% to the base regeneration.
  • Dream lunar spell adds 1% to the base regeneration. In addition, it counts as if the player is resting.
  • Rapid Heal prayer lowers the base regeneration cycle from 6 seconds to 3 seconds (at the cost of draining 10 prayer points per minute).
  • Rapid Renewal prayer lowers the base regeneration cycle from 6 seconds to 1.2 seconds (at the cost of draining 100 prayer points per minute).
  • Resting recovers 1% of maximum life points every 6 seconds which is separate from the base life point regeneration cycle - it does not benefit from Rapid Heal and Rapid Renewal's reduction of cycle interval.

Example 1: Using natural life point regeneration, Fortitude curse, Constitution skillcape, and resting all together will result in 0.1% + 0.1% + 0.1% + 1% = 1.3% of maximum life points every 6 seconds (13% LP per minute).

Example 2: Using natural life point regeneration, Fortitude curse, Constitution skillcape, and Dream all together will result in 0.1% + 0.1% + 0.1% + (1+1%) = 2.3% of maximum life points every 6 seconds (23% LP per minute).

Example 3: Using natural life point regeneration, Constitution skillcape, Regeneration aura, Regen bracelet, Rapid Renewal prayer, and Dream all together will result in (0.1% + 0.1% + 0.1% + 0.2% + 1%)*5 + 1% = 8.5% of maximum life points every 6 seconds (85% LP per minute).
