Common sense tells you that they put Sailing in there on purpose. Pretend you were writing it, would you actually choose the world "sailing" over anything else accidently...?


:? I probably would, it's just a commonly used expression.



OP, you're going to have to better than that if you're going to convince many people that Jagex are thinking of a Sailing Skill. :|

Personally i just think theyre trying to mess with people. Theyve done it in the past when people got too excited about certain rumours.



Besides, seems rather odd that they would announce that 2009 is going to focus on tweaks and updating old content, then less than a week after drop hints about a new skill. To me, it feels like they want to take a break from the whole "1+ skill a year" thing that theyve been doing for very long, to focus on what theyve already got, which would be a very smart move in my opinion.






Look for Diango to start selling toy sailboats on April 1st.

I personally think this is just another matter of misinterpretation, much like the "niggles" thread on the RSOF.

^ Probably the most accurate estimate of this whole skill-a-year shenanigans going on. This also matches what has already been stated by Runescape Mods: this is an update year.

After the "The world is about to end" signs, they needed something new.



aaaaanyway, even though sailing would be awesome, everyone is way too hypey about every single thing JagEx says or does. Relax dudes.

The only thing you did in that post is prove my points further. Changing your phrasing and saying the skills were "in the grapevine" is the same as saying they were rumored, talked about, fought over, ect ect.



You had no proof of hunter until about 1-2 months before released. It still happened. Jagex hid it from everyone more carefully than they did previous skills.



Sorry hun, but just because the almighty Omali hasn't cracked any codes yet doesn't mean something can't be in the making or on the way. Jagex announced Summoning to help keep people from quitting over the trade limit update. A smart individual such as yourself should be very aware of that. They don't necessarily have to announce the next skill if they chose to keep it under wraps.




Uhh huh. Summoning and Construction, as well as player owned houses, were confirmed since 2001, as in Jagex said "we're going to do this". Nothing has been said about Sailing or Archaeology, there is no proof.



Hunter was speculated before it came out because of the random animals that were appearing in various places that couldn't be interacted with.



They don't have to announce the skill to be working on it. You're using the "There doesn't have to be proof for it to be true" strategy, and it's not working. Notice how I'm not saying "Sailing isn't coming out", I'm saying you don't have any proof that they're working on it. There is no hard evidence that Jagex is going to release a sailing skill, none.



It's quite difficult for the almighty Omali to crack codes that aren't there to begin with.

This thread is absolutely EPIC.

Here is what I think on the matter:



Sailing would be great, but Jagex love the thrill of teasing us with development diaries, so it wont be released soon. I think the reference relates to the 150th quest, which will be the Kudos quest from the Varrok Museum!



Ever seen those people building barges north of the digsite? I think the quest will revolve around you having to make/ use the barge to sail to the quest area, and maybe more in the quest...



I love the idea of sailing, but somehow I doubt they could conjure it up in such short notice...

If a new skill comes out, I want them to surprise us like they did with hunter and construction.

No plz.



Me no want.



No wanty means no plz.



And on that bombshell(Yay Clarkson), its apparent that I don't want sailing.





And I doubt that by saying that phrase in the post means sailing is coming out.

I also hope it isn't.

Want.

Sarcasm on the Internet is like winking on the phone. That's what's happened.

I plan to laugh at all of you when Sailing is actually released.



Sorry to say, but every skill in the past that people have said "were only rumors and would be lame," came out. Farming. No one thought it would be cool to plant a seed and watch it grow. Did it happen anyway? Yes. Summoning. People made rumors about it for years. Did it happen? Yes? Player Owned Houses. Did people talk about them since RSC and expect them to eventually be released? Yes. Did it happen? Yes. Construction came out. Did people think Hunter would be lame and exactly like Slayer? Yes. Did it still come out? Yes.



So, I'm sorry for telling you, kiddies, but if rumors have spread this largely over the community of Runescape players and it has caught THIS much hype, even if Jagex wasn't planning on making it before, they sure as hell are thinking of it now.



I give it a year tops. We'll have Sailing soon enough. Just wait and watch.


I'm going with Outsanity on this one. If it's not in development now, they sure have considered it.

I personally think that if Sailing ever comes out it won't be a skill but a reward from a Quest that you unlock the ability to own a boat and sail to any port from any port.



To be fair, there is no point arguing, if it comes out, those who said it would can brag, if not, then those who said it wouldn't have the right to insult you. Simple.

I bet my entire bank that the makeover mage will be the one with the skill cape.


Winged Fish on a RWT complaint-

There's four complaints on the whole site, one from a mother who was convinced by her son that the RWTers she was buying him items from were from Jagex (and then got scammed and is taking it out on Jagex), two people complaining about having their accounts taken away, and one ranting on the trade restrictions and wilderness removal.

Now just change the background color and page layout, and you have the RSoF

"There's something big on the horizon!"



Yet... there was no horizon involved. Just stop getting all hyper because you heard the world sailing said by Jagex. Yeah, I'd like the skill too, and I think it's probably coming eventually. However, you don't need to quote Jagex whenever they say something even sailing related.






shunn the none believer, shunnnn shhhhhhhhun




You watch too much Charlie the Unicorn, if you ask me.

Besides about this so-called sailing skill (magical sailing!), JAGeX ain't hyping it, the players are!

Who was that idiot a while ago who declared sailing false? He must feel like a jackass.



Really though I don't think you can speculate much past the word itself. It's not like there is any other new evidence to suggest anything, and that banner wasn't a sailing cape.

The banner showed a green dragon attacking crandor, and at the time the tutorial island was getting replaced, but the dragon mod simon was quoted saying "Could it be elvargs mother?" in more than a few words, and threw in a few Jack Sparrow quotes after, but if that thing on the highscores the icon wasnt false then fair enough, however.



On miniclip, the advertisement made my jagex, said 25+ skills, theres currently 24 skills, and the genie lamp has 24 icons on, with space for 2 more, and that was ony updated about 2 months ago, i believe this year isnt just 1 skill, and that it's 2, i believe its like smithing is to mining, and fishing is to cooking, jagex throw in a few quotes for jack sparrow, and the word sailing in the poll post, the evidence to me doesnt point to once skill, but infact two.. flame me all you want.



I believe it's sailing + one other yet to be named... Ned could also be the Achievement cape owner, since he is a retired sailer.
