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!




Yeah, I've thought of a way to implement them. It'd add yet another dimension to the skill, making it even more fun to train.



But I don't have time to add it right now, so I will when I get the chance. ;)

I'm really glad people like this skill suggestion, especially since Archaeology has been bashed as an idea in the past...

That's exactly why I did this. I was always for the skill, but a LOT of people bashed the idea down because they were too narrow-minded to think past the actual word Archaeology. Yes, at first glance it, just based on the name, most would think it would be boring.



But then again...look at the names of other skills we have. Farming? Hardly sounds more exciting than Archaeology, but people in the end loved what it brought to the game.



Hopefully this will get enough support so I can send it to Jagex.

Construction is not "con," actually, that's just what most people say to abbreviate it. When I have been talking about it to friends I've been saying "Arch," so yeah...I'd imagine that would be what people would call it.



And we don't need to go as far as a skill cape animation. It's not really needed and the idea is fine without it. Plus...stick figures wouldn't be appealing enough to put in the guide. =-p

That is an excellent idea! I will make a code that people can put into their signatures if they support the idea. That should advertise it better, as well. :)

Excellent ideas. I'm glad you expanded the idea beyond just going around digging stuff up - with the caverns that help other skills and such.

My only problem is the cape...

Where does yellow and red fit in with Archaeology? Iwould have thought black and white to be better suited to this skill.



Well done with this.

Well, the trim is brown. I know it appears to be red in the icon, but...erm...it's brown. :XD:



And I think since the skill is a money maker, it should involve some royal gold colour, and since we already have brown capes with gold trim, I thought I'd do a gold cape with brown trim. Plus, no other cape is a gold colour, and we need more variety.



That, and for some reason, when I think of Archaeology I think of the desert, and when I think of the desert, I think of golds and browns.



That's just me, though. =-p

Ill give you 5/10 for effort.



If things like mining and WC weren't boring enough? Oh, yeah, lets turn 100,000 logs into bows!



Or how about we go and brush off rocks all day! WOO!



No, sorry, wont ever happen.

Did you even read the entire thread? My money is on NO, you did not. If you had, you would know my idea is nothing like just "brushing off rocks." So next time you want to say something, lets make sure you do your research beforehand.



As for those boring mining and woodcutting skills, I'd like to bring forth the fact that a VAST majority of Runescape is clicking and doing monotonous actions. If you don't like them that much, why even play this game?



And also, posts like yours are not wanted here. You don't have to agree with the idea. That's fine. But if you don't like it, at least give some constructive criticism on how it could be improved.



Oh, and by the way, it could happen, and should it ever, I am going to come back and laugh right in your face. O:)

WOW



Great topic and excelent idea



You really put your idea out there and presented it very well



I do have a few suggestions tho:

If I have just started this new skill, It takes a long time for me to get to lvls that i can do stuff at. Maybe move some of the lvls down so that when you are new, you dont have to spend a load of time using your stupid lvl 1 tools.

Second, I love the idea of incorporating lots of other skills into the archeaology skill BUT, if you want to get into those places you have to be friggin good at those other skills. Maybe lower some of the reqs. for the other skills when you want to use them.

Its all up to you though, If you see something different than I, dont let that ruin your great ideas!



Once again Amazing job



Thanks Tron50 \<img src=/' />

i've always been fascinated by the archaeology skill, and to my knowledge, i'm pretty sure it's coming out on the 11th of october, due to the combination of hints and facts i gathered from rs forums about when new skills come out, and one of my friends knowing a j mod who gave him hints towards treasure/digging in october, who knows if it's true but no new skills have come this year and i'm sure 1 skill will come out this year atleast anyway



add me to the list ^_^ \<img src=/' />



brilliant idea and extremely well thought out! if only jagex took ideas like this on board =[

Thank you very much for your support and constructive criticism guys. This is the kind of stuff I want for feedback, so thanks for that!



And that is some VERY interesting information, Triquos. If you're right, we have the Archaeology skill just right around the corner!



But to be safe, I'll just wait for it to happen before I get overly hyped up about it. =-p



All three of the above posters are added to the list. Thanks for your support, guys. :)
