Does anyone know if any new skills are going to be brought into the game? Like I really liked the riding skill idea since it would mean a mount system would be put in place and that would make travelling around so much quicker and easier when teleportation and load stones aren't a option.

In streams they've talked about wanted to rework and improve current skills before releasing an entire new skill. 2019 at the earliest.


I feel like that's the best way to go about it. Yes, the joys of a new skill is wonderful! But on the other hand.. Current skills are being left in the dust and aren't really getting any love, and I'm not talking about any single New Content... I meant adding onto the Core to give the Skill more Oomph and just to make the skill more worth to sink your teeth into!

But I really believe that a riding/mount skill (or even feature! it doesn't always have to be in the form of a new skill) will turn out as a disaster... This game does NOT remotely have any ounce of basis for mounts to work. It needs a massive optimization to the FPS in general, removal or the tile/grid system that Runescape has and perhaps the notorious tick system.

Edit: Oh, and the world by landmass will also have to be massively expanded. It will be so uncomfortable to ride into Forests etc. as our Mounts will bump into everything consecutively!

Since I started RS, only 3 skills have been added (although there was a major upgrade to the next most recent skill in there).
Dungeoneering
Divination
Invention

The skill that had a big rework/update was Summoning. I've been playing nearly 10 years (I can get 10 yr cape next month). So, looks like there are a few years between them.

Yeah, I prefer them reworking & improving the current skills first rather than releasing a new one
but that will take awhile, a long one

I'm trying to really do my best to promote Sailing Elite skill... which would provide the best adventure and expansion to this game. So many options to include with Sailing. Support Elite Sailing Skill
