Hitpoints represents a player's health. If it reaches 0, the player will die. Hitpoints is the only skill to start out as level 10 on Tutorial Island, where the player starts out with exactly 1154 experience.
A player can heal to restore their hitpoints back to its maximum. There are a number of ways to do this.
- Let it recharge on its own. A player will recover one hitpoint about every minute. However, this is very slow as a means of recovering hitpoints.
- Eat food. Players can eat various foods to restore their hitpoints. The best foods that heal a lot are the ones that can be cooked by a player. This is the recommended way a player heal themselves.
- Die. When a player dies, they respawn at full health and stats. This is recommended if the player has banked all items and wants to go to an area near their respawn point.
