Stagger (formerly Stun) is a curse spell in the standard spellbook that temporarily reduces the target's hit chance by 10% for 60 seconds. It does not stack with Confuse, although a target may suffer from both at the same time.

  • It was once possible to cast Stagger on dummies at Varrock and Lumbridge; however, this can no longer be done. Some players were upset by the removal of the ability to Stagger dummies, as it had been a popular method of training Magic.
  • Before the Evolution of Combat, Vulnerability and Enfeeble were used alongside Stagger for training Magic in metal armour because the spell would always miss with a low enough Magic attack bonus (-65). It could be re-cast indefinitely in this manner, resulting in quick experience. This training method was no longer possible after the Evolution of Combat, but is now possible again after a recent patch in 2017.
