Would you ever like to see Warding in RS3? Does it fit RS3 thematically?

Warding is a proposed New Skill for OSRS, where players make Mage Armour. It is the equivalent of :

- Crafting for Range
- Smithing for Melee

RS3 has mage armor crafted from both crafting and runecrafting, so no, I don't think it'd fit RS3 anymore, unless they reworked those to the new skill (but would that really be worth it anymore?).

so in runescape for melee armor you
- use mining to get resources
- use smithing to make armor

so in runescape for range armor you
- ... umm... kill I guess...
- use fletching to make armor

so in runescape for mage armor you
- ... kill like imphides i guess... or buy them from the store
- use crafting

the only difference is in POP where you need runecrafting to create mage armor. so i guess i would just like them to be more consistent. we should have more armor u can make with rc

The currently proposed idea is that if the M&S Rework is successful, Crafting and Fletching will be used for Ranged gear, and all magic gear will be moved solely into Runecrafting.

Crfting and fletching are already used for Magic equipment, and Invention is the quivalent of enchantment, so there really is no use for Warding

That was mentioned nowhere in the their public design documents. On discord, Jagex made it clear that fletching, crafting and runecrafting would remain unchanged with this update.

As you said, with this update.

In other words, they're not going to change those three skills as a part of the Mining & Smithing Rework. However they have said that if the Mining & Smithing Rework is a success, then they might look into reworking other skills as future projects. It's not mentioned in the Mining & Smithing documentation because it's nothing to do with the Mining & Smithing project, just a possible future spin-off of it involving other skills.
