Old School RuneScape is set to introduce a new skill, and players are being asked to vote on their favorite concept. The three potential new skills are Sailing, Taming, and Shamanism, each offering unique gameplay experiences.
Sailing is a support skill that allows players to command their own vessel and explore the open seas of Gielinor. This skill will enable players to unlock new content and expand the world of Gielinor beyond what they have ever experienced.
Taming is a utility skill that lets players build a unique bond with creatures they seek out and train over time. These creatures will have special abilities to help players on their journey, making them valuable companions. However, players must take care of their new friends and train them well to unlock unique ways to interact with the world.
Shamanism is a combination of Gathering and Production skill that allows players to harness the power of nature and the Spirit Realm to create powerful utility and support items. The gameplay loop is familiar, yet magical, offering players a unique and exciting gameplay experience.
To decide which skill will be introduced, players are being asked to vote on their favorite concept, and the concept with the most votes will be refined further. Once refined, the concept will be put to a lock-in poll, and if it passes, work will begin on the New Skill Beta.
Old School RuneScape has been gathering input and feedback from the community, with over 138,000 votes and 44,000 survey responses received. The development team is grateful for the input and is excited to offer players a new skill that will expand and enhance the gameplay experience.
