Hello Tip.It,

With the recent announcement regarding RuneScape 3, we thought it was about time that we also shed some light on the two new skills we are adding later this year, and what better way to get the ball rolling than a fansite exclusive!

The first new skill is something our players have been suggesting for a while, and will tie into the recently released player owned ports update, as well as Soul Wars and the Varrock museum. That's right, the Eastern Lands are finally going to open up for your personal exploration with the release of the Exploration skill!

The Exploration skill opens up the ability to travel to the many islands of the Eastern Lands for yourself, courtesy of an expedition for the great Varrock museum. However, massively expanding the size of the world map is just the beginning, as the Exploration skill will open a gate to researching and exploring the Eastern Lands, participating in archaeological digs, trekking through dangerous jungles, and even commanding your own ship in search of lost lands and sunken treasure.

We aren't ready to release the specifics just yet, but through your explorations you will not only become more proficient as an explorer, but will gain knowledge and skills unique to the Eastern Lands, such as the ability to create brand new scrimshaws, and access to brand new resources to be used in new and exciting ways in conjunction with Exploration and the existing skills. As an added bonus, your exploration of the Eastern Lands is tied to player owned ports. For those who have already discovered new regions, you will find you have ready access to these regions upon your arrival. For those who progress faster than their ship captains, or who are not yet able to send out their own ships, your progress in the Eastern Lands will be reflected by the missions you can take in port. You might even manage to secure some resources for your port on your travels.

As promised, we are also releasing a skill for free players and members alike later on this summer. The Engineering skill truly has something for everyone, and like Exploration the focus is on enhancing your other skills in new and exciting ways. Craft better items such as armour or crossbows with the help of new technology you develop through the Engineering skill allowing you to enhance stats and add new effects. A sword that does extra damage, or armour that helps you keep your balance. You might even find ways to help you move around the world in a quick and flexible fashion. One could go so far as to say you'll be able to feel the wind beneath your wings.

For our members, the Exploration skill is not to be left out. The fusion of new technology with ancient techniques as you combine Engineering and Exploration is going to be truly spectacular!

Stay tuned as later on this week will be the first of several BTS videos showcasing the new skills, starting with Exploration followed by Engineering. This year is truly shaping up to be one of the largest and most exciting in history!

If it is an april fools it seems a bit dry compared to the usual obviously ludicrous stuff we get.

The engineering half does seem much more plausible than the first half due to things like: We won't have sailing skill, no plans to go to the Eastern Lands anytime soon, Varrock Museum expedition...why when they haven't even managed Kudos Isle yet?

But then 'wind beneath your wings' eg flying, does sound a bit too puntastic as well.

I think this is another April's fools. Jagex wouldn't release this on April 1:st...Sadly. Because those skills sounds awesome.

Exploration sounds perfectly feasible - Engineering, less so. Jagex are yet to update Smithing and various other skills..

Worst April Fools' ever, not believable in the slightest, whoever thought of this idea has no creativity at all.

Just my opinion, not meaning to hurt any ones feelings.

Yes, this was done as an April fools. I do realize it was certainly different from our usual style, which you can perhaps blame on the person who wrote it who comes from a culture which loves the serious style of prank where you aren't sure if they're joking or not.

That's the best kind of prank.
