Retreating is the act of disengaging from combat. Both player characters and monsters can retreat during combat, but only after the first three rounds. Because of this, it is often desirable in Player Killing to be able to kill your opponent in these first three rounds of combat before they are able to retreat. Also because of this, aggressive monsters are much more dangerous in RuneScape Classic than in RuneScape 2 as a player could potentially be killed before they have a chance to retreat.
