What is RuneScape Invention?
The Invention skill was introduced to RuneScape back in 2016, bringing the first elite skill to the game. There were requirements needed to unlock the skill, which included being at level 80 in Divination, Smithing and Crafting. Capping at level 120, this would be only the second skill that would reach a cap as high as this, with the first being Dungeoneering.
Getting Started with Invention in RS3
As mentioned, there are a few skills that you need to reach level 80 with to start leveling Invention. Once you have reached those levels, go to an area near Falador known as the Invention Guild. You will notice that there is an Invention logo outside on the ground, so you will know that you are in the right place if you see it. You will then be able to participate in a tutorial courtesy of Doc to help you get to grips on how the skill is used.
If you have been following us so far, then it would be fair to assume that you have noticed that a lot of the Invention skill revolves around the use of a workbench. You can find a number of these in the surrounding areas, in places such as the anvil in Seer’s Village and in the Constorium building over in Keldagrim. There are also anvils in Varrock and Yanille too. You can also use the furnace near the Ardougne church, plus there’s Oldak’s lab in Dorgesh-kaan as well.
RuneScape Invention Guide – Leveling
To get started with actually training the Invention skill, there are a few things you can choose from. You can level up equipment before taking them apart so that you gain a lot of experience. Siphoning is good in the sense that it means you get to keep the equipment, though you won’t be awarded as much experience. You can make gizmos too for leveling, but this can be a costly method. Then there’s item creation, so you can create the likes of siphons to help you grind to level 120.
The best way is to focus on leveling up equipment. This is because it can be done with other skills, since your equipment will level up as your skills do. Once you have gotten to a point where your equipment is of a high level, you can then siphon it or dissemble it to reap the rewards.
Once you hit level 40, you will then be able to switch up the Human tech tree to either dwarven or cave goblin tech trees. This will make a difference on which items you unlock first, but ultimately it doesn’t make much difference. After all, no matter what tree you start off with, you will be able to craft all items down the line.
You will also become more familiar with the Inspiration currency when leveling Invention. During the leveling process, you will see blueprints being unlocked, which need a particular amount of Inspiration in order to be discovered. You gain Inspiration just by playing through RuneScape and getting your levels up. You will then need to solve a puzzle for the blueprint so that you don’t have to use as much Inspiration.
Disassembling and Leveling
When a player disassembles an item, they get parts that are used to craft gizmos. This can be done by bringing them over to the Invention button next to your currency pouch in your inventory. This will give you some experience and parts depending on what the item is. Once you start the leveling up process, you will be unlocking more gizmos as well as items. This will eventually give you the opportunity to augment your certain weapons and other items.
In order to do so, you will need to go to an Invention workbench and make an Augmentor. You can then use it to apply to an item which allows you to add gizmos that have perks. These can be added via the Invention interface, which will have better perks as the quality of item goes up. You will need to make a gizmo shell firstly before adding parts to it. There are five slots in total, with five common items going into each slot and one rare material for each slot.
Now that you have augmented your item, you can then start with the leveling process. If you are planning on using this process for Combat or Slayer, then the method would be to augment the weapons and armour of choice, add the relevant perks to help increase its combat ability, then simply train Slayer as you normally would. Once you hit level 10 or so, you can then disassemble your item to gain experience.
Your augmented equipment will use up charge, which you can increase by purchasing divine charges. It is advised that you do create your own, since they can be quite expensive to buy outright.
That is more or less everything that you need to know when it comes to RuneScape Invention leveling. The process is pretty straightforward once you have gotten your head around the method that is used. Having an idea of what tools to make, such as Siphons, can really go a long way in getting the most out of your items. This can ensure that the Invention skill is something that is going to be of use when playing RuneScape. With this knowledge under your belt, you should be well on your way to hitting level 120 in the Invention skill.
