Boats are utilized regularly in OSRS gold . You constantly have some NPC sail into some island. But why can't YOU bring yourself and not have to pay that small amount of money which takes up inventory space. Well with the newest Boating Skill you can. This is how it works. You'd purchase planks like in Building and you would work on your own boat. You'd need a saw to cut the boards, Nails, Planks (Of different types like building ) hammer and then of course yourself. Then after you assembled all the sections of your ship you can add things such as a flag or possess the symbol of a clan on it. Then you can hire a crew. It's possible to employ a navagator, chef, pirate etc. to help take good care of your ship. You might also put cannons or catapults on your boat to combat other enemy ships. This could be part of a mini-game. Then you can sail your ships to various islands, but you would have more direct control over your boat. To sail your boat you must have a navagator and a priest to help show you the way you can steer and operate the ship. As soon as you get to a certain level you will not require a Captain or Navagator. You can have different rooms such as cottages, a kitchen (That's where the Chef comes in) and even war-room where you co-ordinate battles (Part of the mini-game see below). The way to playYou set sail with Buy old school rs gold your boat and you're able to sail in any waters in runescape. If your boat sinks that you don't lose any items you have on you personally, you just lose your ship. Then you have to re-build your boat or you can just rent one or purchase one from another player or NPC. You also get kill-points for killing other players ships in which you are able to purchase items for your boat like boards, navagators, sails etc.. Overall it seems like a fairly cool skill. I would really like to hear any questions or suggestions which you have with this amazing new ability! Thanks!
