Not my intent to say this in any derogatory fashion, but I've heard of people donating energy to Suomi to help him power through his levels and that is how he's leveled so quickly even though he didn't start right at release. I have not seen this myself though so I wouldn't take it as 100% fact, but a possibility.


Having 100 people telling you which world to quick hop to for enriched energy doesn't hurt either.


This is a collaborative effort everyone in the fc benefits from, not just suomi.

I'm sure that the majority of high lvl players don't like the XP rates because they aren't used to doing a gathering skill..

This is the SECOND gathering skill since... RS2 came out.
Slayer, was mostly mindless killing what you are told
Construction was a creation skill, and always has been a very fast skill.
Hunter is another gathering skill, but was horribly broken on release, but a tad balanced in that the xp per action was high as you had to compete with other people for resources.
Summoning, not so much as a gathering skill but a bit of both really. The gathering is slow, but most people do it without thinking, and think that the XP for using it is really fast when they use the charms.
Dungeoneering is a minigame and not a skill

I think that if you went to do the math of training WC, mining, or fishing, while competing for spots (Especially mining) that the xp is about the same as divination

I don't buy the whole DG is not a skill argument. Do you not get more efficient at the dungeons as you progress? One might even say that all of the different experiences, and scenarios you've come across have compiled in your brain into an efficient and well thought out game plan. Because of this, you're able to venture into dungeons that you may never have risked before, had you not learned from your mistakes and moved forward with gusto.

You have now reached level 120 DG.

How is this not a skill?

The whole DG is not a skill thing has been done to death already that it's best to just ignore those comments now

Already had people calling Divination a minigame too, real big wtf right there.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

It's a gathering skill... Look back during RSC with woodcutting. All you could do is cut normal logs to make a fire. That fire either served a purpose to cook food or trap noobs in the chaos altar so you can watch them die.

Divination is so new I can still smell that new skill smell on it. Yeah sure after a while that smell gets a bit nauseating, but DAMN are you happy to experience it.

Give it time because there is going to obvious be more use to divination than just what we see. And that's not just in reference to the second new skill. We should be seeing more training methods and uses for the energy.

I was inactive during most of the DG Roid Rages, so I guess I dodged a bullet.

I think it has great potential, but in it's current state... Idk.

I got to lvl 37 today. It needs to be moar afkable, even if by just a few more seconds >.< this slow amount of xp is unexcusable. Very few people like high APM/low XP skills; people like Jebrim. and only Jebrim.

Not just Jebrim...

It'll be nice to have a skill that's under 100k/hr again. As before divination, no skill was < 100k/hr at 99.

Meh, seems i've been rushing for nothing only just hit 50, some freakazoids are at 70 already.

I think it's the first time I did an all night bender just for one update trying to profit from the beginnings. Uberfail.

I remember when dungeoneering was released, it was the same thing: "It's too slow." Look how that turned out. Though I doubt this will go the same way.

@Fishing comparison: Quite true, but since all those things are released now, they could be tied in to Divination on Divination's release, right? There is no tie-in with past content at all. For relatively old skills, like runecrafting, that's not a big problem, but we're years past that and those years need to tie in somehow.


But in-game lore wise, this skill has only recently been discovered, and as far as I can tell, you have, as the adventurer RS revolves around, just volunteered to become the leading expert in it, doubly so by being the world guardian...

And no it's not like Runecrafting, because there you merely discovered the means to teleport to the Rune Essence and a shortcut to the altars...

Expected better from tip it community moaning about a slow skill... Come on guys...

Not everything is handed to you on a plate. Everyone just got used to noob gains and 99 in a week. pfft.

A skill comes out that seems to actually take a bit of effort and everyone goes mental. Lol, its embarrassing.
