Skilling off-hands are items that can be equipped in the off-hand slot to provide benefits to certain non-combat skills. Skilling off-hands are not currently augmentable, but this is being considered for a future update.[1]

There are currently two skilling off-hands:

Although not considered to be skilling off-hands, the Combined Catalyst fragment and its three components are items that are similar in concept.

Development[edit | edit source]

The concept was originally revealed at RuneFest 2017 along with concept art for several planned skilling off-hands, but their development was later cancelled. Mod Shauny later picked up the project for Game Jam (2019) before he left Jagex, halting their development again. Two skilling off-hands were finally released as rewards from the Orthen Dig Site.
