In the event you’ve been hiding under a rock, Invention was released in RuneScape last week. We’ve had an impressive amount of coverage of Invention here at Informer and around RSBandB. Let’s get started with that!
Invention is RuneScape’s first elite skill. This means that you need a number of other existing skills at high level in order to begin training Invention. Invention requires 80 Divination, Smithing, and Crafting. Invention begins by disassembling items which leads to finding inspiration which in turn allows you to create prototypes from blueprints. After this it’s as simple as manufacturing Inventions that you have discovered. These could be gizmo shells (used in creating perks) or augmentors (used to augment equipment, which in turn allows it to level up). The best way of currently training Invention is to level gear and then disassemble it.
Now that you know what Invention is, let’s have a look at our coverage:
Our other articles in January covered a variety of topics. Alex began with a timely piece on 15 years of RuneScape. In which he analyzes what sets RuneScape apart and what keeps players like himself playing after 15 years. He’s been around since the beginning, which surely comes with its own unique perspective. Looking forward to the rest of the year Colton gave us a rundown of what we can expect from the impressive slate of quests in 2016. He details each quest and says why it’s important from a lore perspective and gives a rating out of 10 in regards to how excited he is for each quest. Finally, I tackled the topic of social censorship and how companies that once championed an open internet are setting dangerous precedents. This covers Google, Facebook, and Twitter, each with their own unique perspectives on the world and how that hurts openness on the internet.
January’s Skill of the Month competition saw Pyrnassius claim victory. Before that though Jake55111 gained 6.6m experience and Sorensen57 gained 2.6m experience to take second and third place respectively. Pyrnassius gained more than double Jake’s experience at 13,535,741 Ranged experience. Excellent job! Here’s your trophy:
