Looting is an Invention perk that has a chance of adding an additional item to a monster's drop pile when it dies. This perk only works on monsters that give combat experience when killed. The perk has a 5 minute cooldown and is unaffected by any drop modifiers, such as Slayer masks. It can be created in weapon and armour gizmos.

When the perk triggers, one of the following messages appears in Chat:

  • Your Looting perk adds a raw cavefish.
  • Your Looting perk adds a raw rocktail.
  • Your Looting perk adds magic logs.
  • Your Looting perk adds necrite stone spirit.
  • Your Looting perk adds banite stone spirit.

Analysis[edit | edit source]

The average value of loot obtained via the looting perk is 37,769 coins per hour; a maximum of 61,584 coins an hour if only raw rocktails are obtained, or a minimum of 5,496 coins an hour if only magic logs are obtained.

As augmenting a tier 70 two-handed, main-handed, or off-handed weapon with the looting perk would cost players an average of 191,435 coins, 127,623 coins, and 63,812 coins an hour to operate respectively, it is suggested to not augment a weapon with looting if the player is only interested in generating additional profits.
