    So, have you heard about the Archaeology skill? You probably have – it has, after all, been the worst kept secret of 2019. But the joy is that there is so much more to talk about.

    That’s because Archaeology is so much more than a skill. On one hand, it's a gathering skill, much like woodcutting or fishing. It's about getting your knees dirty to amass puzzle pieces from our past. On the other hand, it's a manufacturing skill like Smithing or Fletching, putting these artefacts back together to create real treasures. It’s also five new areas including the depths below Al Kharid, the far reaches of Morytania, underneath the Wilderness and more. And it's swathes of loot, all eager to be unearthed, including three new types of reward that will change how we all play (particularly higher level players)!

    You'll get all of this and more in January 2020. Let's start digging in...

    Oh cool, I was just in an "Indiana Jones" mood recently lol. Let me guess, this skill is only for members, right?

    Yes*, free-to-play has access up to level 20, which is weird but I suppose is the first logical "set" of level unlocks. Better than the typical 5-level cap though.

    Is this skill profitable?

    That's a question that'll have to wait until the skill actually exists in-game.

    Oof, goodbye, my Max Cape. Nonetheless, I look forward to checking out the new Archaeology skill when it launches; I assume it partially has something to do with exploring things.
