I was trying to come up with a new skill, and the best thing I could come up with was multi-tasking, it's hard to come up with a new one because it's either already there in a different form or would make an already overpowered game even more overpowered..

So I was thinking, this skill would encourage people to train multiple skills at once, what I was thinking was something like you gain XP each time you gain XP in two or more different skills in a give time, say 10-20 seconds or something... For instance, if you were training melee and using a cannon, or mining and superheating, or fletching and alching...

Rewards would be the ability to "multi-task" quicker, for instance... Say you're mining and superheating, the higher multi-tasking level you have, once you perform the combination once, each time after you would either mine and superheat quicker, or possible have a temporary increase in both skills, such as +3 magic level and +3 mining level, or even gain more XP in magic and mining whilst doing both...

Just a thought, it's probably a horrible idea, but coming up with a new skill is difficult... So i don't know.. Input and discussion welcome..

I think multi-tasking is reward enough in and of itself that it doesn't require further incentive to encourage it.

I'm afraid I agree with the above poster - I can't see this serving much purpose as a skill.

Dungeoneering pretty much is the multitasking skill. Sorry sir.

That's by far not the worst idea for a system, but I don't think a skill is really the optimal way to reward multi-tasking. Nice concept though.

not to mention jagex hates emergent gameplay (which most multi-tasking is).

DK drops (solo/LS): 66 hatchets, 14 archer rings, 13 berserker rings, 17 warrior rings, 12 seerculls, 13 mud staves, 7 seers rings

QBD drops: 1 kite, 2 visages, 4 dragonbone kits, 3 effigies, lots of crossbow parts

CR vs. CLS threads always turn into discussions about penis size.
...
It's not called a Compensation Longsword for nothing.

I've sent a 12k combat mission to have Aiel assassinated (poor bastard isn't even Pincers-tier difficulty).
