I’ve read the concept for the skill warding and find it interesting but part of me had a different thought, what if warding was instead combined with runecraft?

The reason being runecraft is used exclusively for making runes and to a degree tiaras, smithing is used for making melee equipment and ranged weapons to a degree, crafting and fletching for ranged, but what if to make runecraft less tedious it was combined with runecraft

I propose this: add the warding skill to the runecraft skill, rename the runecraft skill to mystic craft

Being able to craft runes for mystic craft is now like how you need to have completed tourist trap to make darts or making spears with barbarian training or completed death plateau for smithing claws, it’s part of a bigger skill,

Additionally with smithing you can make melee weapons or armor with one skill

combining runecraft and warding would allow magic users to do the same with magic armor/weapons/runes

i am aware ranged armor and weapons require three separate skills but that's another story

Players can still make new items for magic with mystic craft like they would with warding, like robes and other magic armor, additionally players can make talismans, staves, battlestaves and mystic staves with crafting and- or mystic craft ( i find it weird that battlestaves can be made with fletching since fletching is meant for ranged not magic, it would make more sense to have it as part of crafting or allow fletching and crafting to make them)

Being able to make talismans would lessen the need to get them from monster or other players when you can craft them yourself, also it’s odd that you can’t buy talismans from an npc


I am aware the skill isn't released yet but i thought this would make more sense for warding

Crafting, smithing, fletching all have very high XP rates so I'd imagine Jagex would want warding to be similar. So if you merged warding with runecrafting you'd either have it be inconsistently slow compared to the similar skills, or so fast that it devalues the current runecrafting skill. So no support.

Agreed, assuming what you're saying is that runecraft needs a 5000X xp buff.

That is what you're saying, right?

If you want to merge it with anything, merge it with crafting.

Runecrafting would still be valuable if it was the main source of runes, the "tediousness" used to be balanced well by the massive reward it gave, being one of the fastest ways to gain gold at high levels.

If you removed runes from droptables RC would be valuable again.
But, if you added warding/a faster exp rate to RC? it would be just as worthless as it is in RS3.
