Artisan (Skill) & Elite Dungeon 1: Lava Hideout

Recommended Posts







The Artisan skill is a skill that's going to be used in the long run in the main game, using a huge variety of items to use within the Skill and the Rewards are endless, in the future the Forge will be updated to include Artisan when calculating your Success Chance, from Aura's that reset weekly, to passive Sigils that can used in and out of Combat, when Artisan releases with the Elite Dungeon Lava Hideout, it will only contain what is mentioned in this thread, however in the near future there will be a Batch 2 of updates, but we'll talk about that further down the line.


So what is Artisan?

Artisan is a mixture of Invention (RS3), Summoning (RS2/OSRS Thralls) & Warding (Failed OSRS Skill), this is why I previously spoke about increasing the level cap for a few skills, it's designed to be a support Skill.

Items can be broken down into their core materials and components, similar to ones found in the Invention Skill (RuneScape 3 Wiki)

Lava Hideout

The Lava Hideout is the first Elite Dungeon coming to Runique, Elite Dungeons are similar to how Catacombs of the Forsaken was, offering a fast repeatable activity, however this time you must kill all the trash mobs to continue the dungeon, every player in your party that deals damage to an trashmob receives loot, straight to their Lava hideout storage, this is also true for the bosses, all monsters inside of the Lava Hideout have the same droptable with varying drop rates depending on their levels with the exception of bosses. 





Each time an island has been successfully completed a new path to another island will appear, every 3 islands you will encounter a demi boss until you've reached full circle to take on the Enraged lava beast, introducing new weapons, capes and ammunition types, I won't delve too much into the rewards from Elite Dungeons, however unlike Raids, you can leave at any point.


I previously spoke about the Enrage system, the Enrage system will put up your dungeons difficulty for each completion you've successfully completed, however when you die your storage chest is reset and so is your enrage, as your enrage increases so does your rewards.


Please note: that the Enrage system is completely opt-in, and your entire party needs enrage mode active to start an enraged dungeon, dying inside the Elite Dungeon with 0 Enrage or Enrage disabled means your loot will not be lost, this is a risk for reward system.
