Project Rebalance: Combat Changes

Elemental Weaknesses
- For every point of Elemental Weakness an NPC has, spells of that element will gain +1% Accuracy and +1% Damage. For example, if you cast Fire Wave on an NPC who's got a 50% Fire Weakness (Moss Giant), you'll gain 50% bonus Accuracy and Damage.

Elemental Spell Scaling
- Your max hit with elemental spells (Strike, Bolt, Blast, Wave, and Surge) will now scale to the highest level spell you have unlocked. For example, at 13 Magic, Wind Strike will have a max hit of 8.

Ranged Defence Types
- Ranged Defence for NPCs is being split into three categories: Light, Standard, and Heavy. However, no F2P NPC's have been affected so far.

Prayer
- Reduced the Prayer drain rate for Thick Skin, Burst of Strength and Clarity of Thoughts, Sharp Eye and Mystic Will from 5 to 1.67 points per minute. Effectively, they should drain at a third of the speed they used to.
- Sharp Eye and Burst of Strength now boost your Ranged and Strength by 1 level respectively, if those levels are lower than 20.
- Mystic Might: Magic damage while active increased from 0 to 2%.

Other
- Attacking an NPC with auto-cast enabled no longer incurs an extra 0.6s delay. This has been requested for absolutely ages, all that's left now is to figure out what you're going to do with all the extra time you'll have!
