By clicking on the crossed sword icon (shown in the below picture), youâ€™ll be able to see which attack style youâ€™re currently using, and youâ€™ll be able to switch between the different styles. Each attack method is named differently depending on what weapon you are using. Usually, the order of attack styles is Accurate, Aggressive, Controlled, and Defensive. You can find out the exact name for each style by hovering your cursor over the button. The pictures of each style will also help you to determine how you want to attack.
You will also notice the Auto Retaliate button. Auto Retaliate basically tells your character what to do when you are attacked by another force. If you have this option on, then your character will instantly start fighting back. If this option is off, then your character will stand and do nothing, until you right click on the force and select the option to â€œAttackâ€.
When you select an attack type, youâ€™ll gain experience in that combat skill when you cause damage to an enemy. You will always earn experience in Hitpoints. You can earn experience in attack, defense, strength, or all 3, depending on the style you use.
Buying Your First House
To start off, youâ€™ll want to purchase some land from a Real Estate Agent for 1,000gp. There are a few places where you can find these characters, including:
East of Varrock Castle
East of the Furnace in Falador
Northeast of Seersâ€™ Bank
Southwest of the market
Once you speak to him, ask him about getting your own house, and then buy one for 1,000gp. After paying, youâ€™ll get a Construction Book, and youâ€™ll now be able to enter your house. So, head on over to Rimmington - this is where your house is located. Eventually, youâ€™ll be able to have it moved to another one of the available locations, but for now, youâ€™ll be living in the town-where-not-much-happens.
Cooking can be a fun and interesting skill in RuneScape, since you can often cook several different types of food at the same level. Thereâ€™s a variety of things you can do with this skill, but more importantly, itâ€™s an essential skill to survival in the game.
There are 2 main kinds of food in the game. Foods that require ingredients to be mixed together such as bread, pizzas and pies tend to take more time to make. Fish on the other hand, only need to be fished for and then cooked over a stove or fire. Once youâ€™ve decided on the food to make, you can follow the instructions on the Cooking Chart below.
If you need a temporary boost to your Cooking level, then the chefâ€™s Delight drink is exactly the drink for you. It can be Brewed, and this drink will increase your Cooking level by 1-5 points, depending on your Cooking level (a higher Cooking level means it will increase more). This drink is Members-Only.
These helpful items are a reward from the Family Crest Quest, and will increase your chance of successfully cooking various types of fish.
Pottery making is a great way to begin crafting because it gives a nice amount of experience and itâ€™s fairly straightforward. Itâ€™s main purpose is to help you with cooking, since the things you make with it are used to hold ingredients.
First, mine some Clay from the west Varrock mine, and buy a jug from any local General Store. Fill it with water from a sink or fountain, and use it with the clay to create some Soft Clay. Head to the Barbarian Village, and use the soft clay with a Pottery Wheel inside one of the houses. Now use the pottery with the Pottery Oven to bake it into a useable item.

Another good way to work on crafting is to make different kinds of armor from leather. If you have a few GP to spare, you can make a small profit from leather items.
Your Defense Class can be viewed by clicking on the body icon, which is to the right of the backpack icon. Once you are viewing the body menu, click the bottom button labeled â€œShow Equipment Statsâ€. A screen will pop up, contain an enlarged picture of your character, the equipment you are currently wearing, and your stats.
The different classes are Stab, Slash, Crush, Magic and Ranged. The more you have in a Defense class, the better your defense against that type of attack is. The better the armor, the more Defense you will have. Different armors give different bonuses.
Stab - This protects you from stabbing attacks, such as daggers, spears.
Slash - This protects you from slashing attacks such as claws and swords.
Crush - This protects you from mauling attacks, such as maces and punches.
Magic - Protects you from Magical attacks and increases chances of magic missing on you, or Dragon Breath.
Range - Protects from ranged attacks, such as arrows and darts.
Prayer - This determines how slowly your prayer drains.
