The Hitpoints skill determines the maximum amount of Hitpoints the player can have and their passive regeneration rate.


Increasing Max Hitpoints

For each Hitpoints level the player has, their maximum hitpoints will be increased by 10, to a maximum of 990 at level 99.

There are also several other boosts which can increase the player's maximum hitpoints:

Name Type Boost
Dragonfire Shield (item).svg Dragonfire Shield Equipment +30 Maximum Hitpoints
Finn, the Cat (pet).png Finn, the Cat Pet +10 Maximum Hitpoints
Mud Dive Agility (skill).svg Agility Obstacle +20 Maximum Hitpoints
Cliff Balance Agility (skill).svg Agility Obstacle +20 Maximum Hitpoints
Rocky Waters Agility (skill).svg Agility Obstacle +50 Maximum Hitpoints
Raft Building Agility (skill).svg Agility Obstacle +20 Maximum Hitpoints
Ice Jump Agility (skill).svg Agility Obstacle +20 Maximum Hitpoints
Total +170 Maximum Hitpoints

Hitpoints experience can be earned by dealing damage to Monsters. 0.133 XP is awarded per point of damage done to a monster. This experience can be increased by 7% by equipping the Gold Emerald Ring (item).svg Gold Emerald Ring.

Recovering Hitpoints

Hitpoints are passively regenerated once every 10 seconds, with 1% of your max health being gained per interval by default. This can be increased by an additional +10 if the Hitpoints Skillcape (item).svg Hitpoints Skillcape is equipped, and by +6 when the Shaman Ring (item).svg Shaman Ring is equipped. In Adventure.png Adventure mode, these flat regeneration amounts scale to +100 and +60 respectively.

Equipping the Gold Ruby Ring (item).svg Gold Ruby Ring increases this amount (including any flat bonuses) by +10%, and using the Unicorn (item).svg Unicorn familiar increases by +50% (with many Unicorn synergies providing additional regeneration bonuses). The Rapid Heal (prayer).svg Rapid Heal Prayer further doubles the resulting amount. Regeneration Potions provide a 3-12% chance to double the amount. These multiplicative bonuses may stack.

Hitpoints may also be replenished by eating Food. Raising Hitpoints to Hitpoints Level 99 will unlock the Hitpoints Skillcape (item).svg Hitpoints Skillcape for purchase from the Shop.

Hardcore.svg Hardcore characters will not regenerate hitpoints passively and must eat in order to regain lost HP.


The skillcape can be purchased from the store for Coins.svg 1,000,000 after the player reaches Hitpoints Level 99.
