This Week Update Will Separate Sailing as Skill from Minigames in RS07
As sailing was announced in Old School RS at first, Jagex confirmed that sailing would be a new skill, instead of a minigame or anything else. But the primary description shows that Sailing is minigame. For this dispute, Jagex has promised that the next update about Sailing will push out more specifics to make a distinguishment.
What factors sign that Sailing is a mini game?
In fact, the difference between a skill and a minigame is that skills need multiple tiers of progression and enough content to fill 99 levels, but a minigame not. However, there is still much confusion from current sailing as a skill.
1. Construction. Similarly to minigames, sailing allows players to build ships in specific areas, explore and be rewarded.
2. Rewards. Generally speaking, by training the skill you gain something that directly pertains to it. But as you train sailing, you are able to build up your ship and sail to different locations.
As for minigames, currently people can buy three RS 2007 fire capes to get one for free on RSorder. If you are enough lucky, you will be able to get a Jad pet as well.
What decisive features make sailing different from minigames?
1. There are multiple ways to train sailing, unlike dungeoning where it is all just doing dungeons.
2. As reported before, sailing will not be self-contained, which is the most different one from dungeoning and will be the main point cut to introduce Sailing in the next update.
3. Construction will play a less role in building the ships. As is the case with most skills in the game, it is not necessary to have a certain level in another skill to be a pre-requisite for training sailing. This is a feature for Sailing than a difference from minigames.
The specifics of Sailing plan to be posted out early this week in order to clear up some of the confusion. And the developers are confident to convince the community to accept their decision happily. Anyway, enough RS 2007 gold is full in stock on RSorder to sell for you. Have fun!
