This talk page is for discussing the Temporary skill boost page.

Full list of temporary boosts[edit source]

I think it would be useful to provide a (sortable) list of all the temporary and invisible boosts available. What does everyone else think? Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 20:19, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Each skill page has the corresponding boosts listed, but I think it might be good to combine them all on this page, each skill having its own section. dictature 15:57, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

Additional information: Requirements[edit source]

The table could be improved with a new column: Requirements. This column includes skill and quest requirements. Example:

Boost Skill Level
Visibility Other info Requirement(s)
Agility potion (or mix) Agility 3 Visible Mix heals 60 Hitpoints. 34 Herblore
Summer pie Agility 5 Visible Also heals 110 Hitpoints and restores 10% run energy. 95 Cooking

Both of the values in the other info column are wrong.I've corrected them for you. 07:00, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

They are not really requirements either, since most items can be bought, it might be worth adding though, but only if the list is complete.--Tharkon 02:17, January 9, 2011 (UTC)

Lifepoints Conversion[edit source]

I made some fixes, but some were not simple find and replace, so rather than do too much damage, I left them as-is. Thanx. --Balton 15:42, March 26, 2010 (UTC)

Crystal Saw[edit source]

Should the Crystal saw really be listed as temporary boost? The boost does not really decay like a temporary boost is expected to do. The saw itself decays with use but the boost does not, so I would suggest removing it.

Boost decay[edit source]

I noticed boosts, and penalties, don't decay at exact 1 minute intervals. In a small test I did going from 94 to 84 Defence, it dropped at these intervals: 65, 66, 65, 68, 65, 65, 66, 68, 67 and 67 seconds. Until we know exactly how this works I edited the article to state approximately 1 minute. There should also be something in it maybe about the Rapid Restore which accelerates the decay of boosts and penalties.

Prayer Boosts (for diary?)[edit source]

noticed a bunch of different options for raising prayer, and I have also looked at various (elite) diaries concerning prayer requirements. Those diary pages do not specifically say "cannot be boosted", and this page does not say if boosts can be used for diary; all it has here are encouraging phrases such as 'visible' and '+15%'.

I don't have any experience with boosting prayer, and I'm only level 79 prayer at the moment, so cannot test for diary. It would just help in planning to know. I suspect these boosts will fail for diary -- if so, I would like to see "cannot be boosted" messages across the 'Falador diary', 'Varrock diary', and 'Temporary boost' pages.

When boosting prayer, it only raises points, and you can't activate any higher prayers, they're still greyed out. The diaries both require the prayer to be activated.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 16:26, 10 May 2011‎ (UTC).

Best Summoning Boost?[edit source]

What is the best boost for Summoning level? Puretppc (talk) 02:16, October 2, 2014 (UTC)

The only one that works is the one in a clan citadel battlefield, and it's only good for effigies. Otherwise, Summoning cannot be boosted. --Saftzie (talk) 02:28, October 2, 2014 (UTC)
