|Attack potion||3 to 12 (3 + 10% of Attack level).|
|Super attack potion||5 to 19 (5 + 15% of Attack level).|
|Combat potion||3 to 12 (3+ 10% of Attack level). Also boosts Strength.|
|Zamorak brew||2 + 20%. Also boosts Strength, lowers Defense and Hitpoints, and restores some Prayer points.|
|Prayer||Clarity of Thought, Improved Reflexes, and Incredible Reflexes boost Attack level by 5%, 10% and 15%, respectively. Chivalry and Piety also increase Attack level by 15% and 20%, respectively, in addition to their other boosts to Defence and Strength.|
|Black mask||15%. Also boosts Strength. Only works when fighting monsters assigned to you by a Slayer Master.|
|Cup of tea||2 points.|
|Ruby harvest||20% when used in a multi-combat zone.|
All percentage values given are calculated and then rounded down. For example, a 10% boost on a level 55 stat would result in
0.10 * 55 = 5.5 --> rounded down --> 5.0, resulting in a +5 boost to that stat.
