Skilling spells are a type of Magic that aids the player in a way that is not related to combat in a direct way. They are listed in the magic section of a player's Ability book, underneath the Skilling spells sub-tab. These skilling spells can be divided into two types, Enchantment spells and Alchemy spells, in addition to a few miscellaneous spells on the Lunar spellbook and Ancient spellbook.
The ways in which these spells aid the player can be very different. For example:
- Convert items into gold
- Cast spell from other spellbooks
- Convert bones into food
- Give crossbow bolts magic effects
- Save inventory space when fighting Chromatic dragons (Make Leather)
- And more
Alchemy spells convert one item into another. By far the most popular is High Level Alchemy.
Unique to the standard spellbook, enchantment spells use cosmic runes to imbue an item with magical properties.
Some spells from the Lunar spellbook have unique functions that do fit into the above categories. As with all Lunar spells, these spells require the completion of the Lunar Diplomacy quest, and possibly the Dream Mentor quest or at least partial completion of the Livid Farm activity.
