Slice is a basic Attack ability, requiring no Attack level to use.

When activated, the player deals deals 30%-120% ability damage. If the target is stunned or bound, Slice instead deals 80%-146% damage.

The stun from Backhand or Kick is too short for Slice to deal its boosted damage, as the stun only lasts for 1.2 seconds and abilities may only be activated every 1.8 seconds. Forceful Backhand or Stomp gives enough time for the user to use Slice once for its boosted damage. The bind from Barge last for 6.6 seconds, which is enough for two Slices and one Punish or two Punishes and one Slice.

The Energising perk will make Slice deal 20% less damage, but it will generate an additional 0.6% adrenaline per rank instead.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Slice used to deal 125% weapon damage and have a flat 10% greater chance of landing a critical hit. With the release of Legacy Mode its damage was lowered and the increased critical hit chance was removed. It used to be considered the equivalent of Wrack and Piercing Shot, but now Punish takes that role.
  • Slice was named Strike in Jagex's test servers for the Evolution of Combat.
