Invention is finally here and the tech-level of Gielinor is about to be pushed through the roof! Get in game today and begin augmenting your gear and discovering perks with this brand-new elite skill.

 

Requirements

You must be Level 80 in DivinationSmithing and Crafting.

 

Where to start

Go to the Guild of Inventors north of Falador and speak to Doc to begin your own journey of discovery.

 

What’s Invention all about?

 

Invention is all about changing the way you approach RuneScape and the challenges of Gielinor. It’s about augmenting and modifying your gear, adding perks that give new dimensions and possibilities. Build sets of gear that are truly your own, and finally overcome those tricky bosses by inventing items that give you a real advantage - it’s all to play for!

 

How about a weapon that you’ve modified to deal extra damage to demons? What about armour that has a small chance of reducing received damage to just 1? Or how about a mysterious enhanced chinchompa that has dramatically increased destructive power (and cuteness)?

 

Train the skill by disassembling your unwanted items and experimenting with their constituent materials at an Invention workbench. This is the core of Invention - discovering an ever-increasing number of special perks, adding them to your items and creating new ways to quest, skill and fight through Gielinor.

 

As you use your augmented gear, it’ll accrue its own XP, levelling in its own right. You’ll find this to be beneficial as you make more discoveries and train Invention further.

 

As you level up the skill, you’ll be able to branch out into specialisations, determining which type of tech you learn first. Will you prioritise Dwarven inventions, or do the volatile designs of the Goblin tech branch appeal more to your sensibilities? It’s up to you!

 

It’s also a skill that’s about looking good. Ever been jealous of that adventurer with the impressively grand leg armour? Well now you can make your own EVEN BETTER leg armour, with spinning cogs and flashing lights and some strange side-effect that you can’t quite put your finger on…

 

New inventions will be added to the game for you to discover each month this year, as part of major updates. There’ll be several bigger batches of Invention content, too.

 

Keep an eye on the news for further updates. But for now, we can’t wait to see what you come up with, and to see you blazing a trail up the hiscores. To the workbench!

 

You can check out the full patch notes for the update on the forum thread.

 

Live Streams this Week

 

Each week we stream developer Q&As, in-game events and more. Watch our streams and find a full streaming schedule over on our Twitch channel.

 

Check our YouTube channel, too, for recap videos of streams you may have missed, including last week’s Ninja Spotlight and our special 15th birthday streams!

 

This week, we’ll be giving you another taster of our new Game Client, NXT, and opening up a box of JMod tricks!

 

Monday 25th January | 16:00 UTC | A noob’s guide to Invention

 

Invention is here! But where can you start? Join us at 4pm today for a brief introduction to Invention with the team!

 

Tuesday, 26th January | 17:00 UTC | Invention Q&A

 

It's finally here! We'll be talking about first-day reactions, future Invention releases, and our plans for Elite Skills moving forward. You'd be mad as Melzar to miss it!

 

Post your questions here and don't miss it from 5pm UTC on Tuesday 26th January!

 

Tuesday, 26th January | 21:00 UTC | The 'Perks' of Invention, with Mod Shauny!

 

Mod Shauny will be trying out Invention's perks, and trying to find the best (and worst) perks for your viewing pleasure.

 

Wednesday, 27th January - 09:30 UTC - Good Morning Gielinor!

 

Mods JD and Jon are on the sofas to talk about a busy January, put another JMod through their paces in the QBD face-off, and talk about something BRAND NEW coming this year to RuneScape!

 

Thursday, January 28th | 17:00-18:00 UTC | Invention Reddit AMA

 

Head over to the RuneScape subreddit and get your questions answered by our team of cog-wielding JMods between 17:00 and 18:00 this Thursday!

Pretty much. Addy dagger are selling for around 5k GP lol. 

 

I like the idea of invention but it'll be awhile before I can do any form of training on it. Trying to get to level 25 then let the market stabilize.

If you have a calquat planted, you can get mats that only have a 20% junk rate from those. Granted, just six at a time unless you have an ent out, but at least it's something.

If by good, you mean takes a really long time to get anywhere and costs an insane amount, then yes.

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

So yes I get all the new mechanics and such that are ment to be used along side invention.  But really whats the point of releasing a skill that in about 14-15 hours of being live people already have 9million exp?  At that rate people will be 200million 3 weeks.....  If they can afford it mind you.

After careful consideration, and having really given it a fair chance, I can honestly say that this is the worst skill ever designed, with the least amount of thought put into it, and it's literally wrong in every way that it could be wrong. I could write a 10,000 word thesis on this, but I don't have the energy. It's an abomination, and it really highlights the lack of critical thinking ability or even just brain cells on the part of Jagex. This is not me being facetious or angry - I am 100% serious and sober. [bleep] Jagex, their lack of thinking and foresight, as well as their cavalier attitude.

It's like after ten years of us complaining about prices and alching someone over at Jagex finally snapped and said "Here! Take your item sink and shove it!"

It isn't even that, it is the fact that there are literally like 8 items that are worth dismantling and everything else is total garbage. All of the stuff worth dismantling outside of crystal flasks and magic shieldbows is ridiculously expensive seeing as they are hard to obtain in the first place and their low price was due to lack of utility instead of overstock. We also get the problem that getting parts for gizmos and augmenters are somewhat hard to come by. You shouldn't have to spend 20m gp to finally get to the part of the skill where you can dismantle your equipment for xp.

 

Another aspect is that the weapons cost way too much to use if they are augmented. It costs something like 500k an hour to use the weapons in their current state for ridiculously low experience. Jagex needs to alter the experience gained from the high level rare parts (make it the best but not insanely higher than other stuff), the parts received from alch priced items (aka buff the shit out of these), and the parts received from the lower tier equipment (buff these as well).

There's literally not enough hand cannons in the entire game for more than a few people to get 120/99 Invention. It's almost as if they didn't even spend more than 0.0005 seconds of thought on this. So a few people get 99/120 Invention, while everyone else is expected to do nothing.

Rune items, battlestaves, dragonhide items, onyx bolts, high level seeds, and slayer uniques are what need to be sinked, not [bleep]ing spirit shields and handcannons....

I can't wait to see what happens to the economy at the end of February with the likely DXP weekend and people hoarding anything they can for Invention.

Man, this is like the release of Construction all over again, except this time, the skill in question is EVEN MORE arbitrary in usefulness and training methods.

I'm sure there's some useful perks to be had amid the sea of garbage ones Jagex have made, but unlocking them just isn't worth the time/resource/monetary investment.

A chimp with no knowledge of RuneScape's economy would have better balanced the catastrophe that is this poor attempt at an item sink.

There will be an update in an hour or so, where they will be nerfed.

Ah man. I remember that upheaval quite well. The bottom fell out on almost everything as people panic sold for supplies.

Oh, I thought they said they weren't nerfing it? Granted I only heard that from a second-hand source. Guess they're not too thrilled with overnight 99's.
