Runescape classic have a very interesting combat system. A fight last 3 rounds minimum. After 3 rounds passed, a player may exit the combat to either use consumables (Potions, food to bring back hit points up to avoid dying or simply to shoot from a distance by either using ranged or magic) or you can simply stay in the fight if you do not need to eat food.
If fighting a player, you must be sure you are well prepared as an opponent will mostly have food in his inventory. So making sure you eat food after every 3 rounds is a nice tactic (Against players)
While training combat , you can select a stance either accurate, aggressive, defensive and controlled
Each stance give experience in different skills.
-Controlled Give experience in every melee combat attributs (Attack, strength , Defence at 1/3rd of the total xp gained from killing a monster).
-Accurate give experience in Attack.
-Aggressive give experience in Strength.
-Defensive give experience in Defence.
dmg to ennemy:
When your hitpoints reach 0, you are dead. To make sure this does not happen, eat food when you feel that you are at risk.
Food can be purchased in a few stores accross the realm or can be gathered from fishing combined with cooking or simply with the cooking skill.
