Runescape Skill Suggestion - Archaeology


Posted Image


IMPORTANT! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE YOU START:

This is an extremely long, but well thought out suggestion for an Archaeology Skill. I have, to the best of my ability, made sure not to suggest anything overpowered or unrealistic. My goal is to show people the potential this skill could possess if done correctly. I can only hope, that as you read through this, you will find yourself wanting the skill to be real, as I have for a while now.

Also, please, do not post on this thread unless you have thoroughly read through ALL of the post. It is long, yes, but I want intelligent posts with comments, compliments and construction criticism.

Please no flaming. No rude behavior. No foul language. Follow ALL of Tip It's Forum rules, and then some.

Thank you. I hope you enjoy your read.

i dont think the digsite quest should be needed, just if you have it done, 10k freee experience. The reason is because at the end of digsite, you are a pretty good archaeologist. :wink:

First of all, very well thought out; good job. =D>



The way you portrayed the archeology skill would fit well in Runescape in my opinion. Add me to support. :)

This is one of the most well thought out suggestions on the Tip It Forums. You clearly nearly every catagory for this skill unlike most people-who just come up with a skill and leave the rest for Jagex. 10/10. I would love this skill, but if it came out- it would probably be members(and I'm F2P) :( .

May as well make my support official. ;) As a F2P I won't be able to enjoy this thing, but as I told you I've always liked the treasure hunting thing, and the little surprise you get at the end. This is a great idea - I admit I wasn't all that convinced with Archaeology at first but the scope of the skill has gotten me hooked. :P



I'll try and get those item images to you before the end of next week, but things are getting a bit hectic now even in the holidays, so the prospect is less likely. :| I'll do my best. :)



Good job again! :D

Thanks, Faelenof! You have helped me quite enough as it is, so don't worry if you can't make any images. We have plenty anyway, I think. =-p



Thanks to everyone else who has posted, too. Your support is much appreciated.

You've put a lot of effort into this, and it would most likely work out very well if it was put in to the game.

Thank you Soz, that's, um...very encouraging. :XD:



I will add you to the supporters list.



And I will be sending this to Jagex once I feel I have enough supporters behind it. They won't even consider reading it if they think no other players have given feedback on it.

This has got to be the most intelligent suggestion I have read in these forums! The rewards are good, but not overpowered. The challenge involved makes the rewards you do get worth it, and everything suggested just seems to make perfect sense.



Perhaps we could add on an additional benefit. A new set of armor for each of the combat classes, requiring Level 75 in that skill to use? Maybe even make it so you have a rare chance of obtaining a piece of the armor from the SES' and require a high Smithing and Crafting level to assemble them. And just to [anger] the merchants, make it untradeable!

That's a very good suggestion, and something that I had originally intended to put in from the beginning, but never did.



I think the approach we want to take with the armor is not combat, though. Perhaps more skill related. I will think on this some more and update it when I come up with a good solution.

Perhaps we could think of several ideas for skill "boosts" which the rare armor could offer. Perhaps a Runecrafting armor which gives a bonus X% experience when crafting runes? Or maybe an increased speed when mining and fishing? Who knows, the possibilities are endless!
