Cryinghawkesaid: Support! i'd love to be able to play music with friends on runescape
I do have some question though,
Will the instruments need/have an equipment slot? How will the instruments be played/used during combat and/or skilling? Was this skill envisioned as a form of support skill such as prayer?
The instrument will be in your inventory, since we think that having to switch to other interfaces might make it harder to use during combat.
The instrument will be played during boss encounters, to trigger the special move with the God that it's set too. During skills, it can be activated before or during the skill, you would have to play the instrument to farming locations for example, during the growing process. For most of the other skills, it can be played just before or during and in some occasions have a set time for it's activity such as thieving.
This skill was envisioned as supporting invention, but also other skills and PVM.
Archeinsaid: You've done an extraordinary job developing the new Music skill! I totally support you and hope your thread gets the attention it deserves.
I do have 1 thing to add (but is just a side thought). With the introduction of Invention being an Elite skill, have you thought of this being developed as an Elite skill? In your introduction, you state the need for Construction, Smithing, and Crafting being necessary for instrument creation (lvl 80). However, an elite version could potentially conflict with some of the ideas/quests you have already created.
This idea is still in production and we will be looking at all the conflicts that could possibly happen and taylor this skill to fit.
