Players cannot destroy the headband if players are in an area that requires a light source and it is the only light source you have in your inventory. Attempts to do so yields the message: Destroying the headband would leave you without a light source.
After 10 February 2009, the seer's headbands received some new bonuses. The Seer's headband 2 used to provide an extra set of logs when a regular tree was cut down in Seers' Village without any experience bonus. After the update, Seers' headband 1 now provided that ability, across the entirety of RuneScape.
If the ability that allows a player to get 2 logs from a regular tree is combined with the Evil Tree reward ability, it is possible to get over 10 regular logs all from the same tree.
There was a bug preventing the Woodcutting bonus for cutting maples trees if the player had grown the Maple tree him/herself. This was also fixed with the 10 February 2009 Seers' headband update.
When Seers' Village Tasks were released the Seers' headband 2 would remove the player's hair and make him/her bald when worn. This could only be fixed by visiting the barber in Falador. This glitch was later fixed.
