Heard this was the new skill coming soon. I had no idea what this was so I looked this up. Basically, its supernatural things like readings, omens and other religous/occult based stuff. Appaently this will involve the gods. What I don't understand is how this can used or even useful in game. I would also like to know if anyone know more about this subject.

i must admit that i don't really understand the reasoning behind it since we already got prayer but i guess it will be kind of like Woodcutting+Firemaking.
i guess we'll have to wait and see what it is all about and pretty much the only thing to do before we're told more about it

It might be useful if you have to uncover things with lore behind them, and they can be used to enhance your performance skilling or training combat. I say this because at sometime throughout this year they are supposed to add more to the 'pocket' slot which is currently only used by scrimshaws.

That being said, they have to reach pretty far to create whole new skills since what else is there to do? There isn't much to generate a whole new skill without creating a whole fictional reason for it to exist. It's not like one day they'll just say "we really should add sailing" since that is already part of PoP and doesn't warrant a whole skill by itself.

Tl:dr new skills pretty much have to be of fictional origins because there has to be content from 1-99 (at least) and there isn't much they haven't added which actually does provide a basis for a wealth of new content.

I also wrote about it in our most recent news post on the site, and actually personally interviewed Dean Ollive (Head of Content, RuneScape) about it. Check it out.

We also caught wind that alongside the development of RS3, two new skills will be introduced into the game. The first of which, Divination, will be released this summer. We asked Dean Ollive, Head of Content for RuneScape if he could give us any details about it. "That skill will be impact-able on the game world" says Ollive. "Elements of this skill and player skilling will affect the outcome you will get. So choose wisely is what I'm saying to players, I don't even know where this sort of thing is going because the players have to tell me." We also asked about the second skill, and what relationship it would have to Divination. "You'll probably have the relationship similar to woodcutting and fletching, so that's what we're looking for. Whether they will come out one after the other I'm not sure, it depends on how the design is going and how crazy they take it with this. The second skill is the one with the real meat on it." At least we can look forward to a new set of skills coming in RS3 with Divination leading the way. Jagex seems to be keeping those details behind closed doors, so we can only wait and see what they'll be.

I assume the skill is about siding with a god for some reason, whilst you go to places related to them and
Spoiler

If the skill is the spoiler, then the later skill might be the "finishing" skill where you could possibly break down objects into energy to use it for other things....either that or Archaeology..

I think their will possibly be flying mounts. With the addition of a clear sky always present in RS3 it is very possible this is true. In the latest development video right when Mod Mark exposes divination as the new skill you can see several RS NPCs looking up into the sky as if they saw Superman. Theres also a scene where a player is riding on the back of a winged Zamorakian Demon.

The game is too small for that. It's probably just an action shot of in air combat we will never be able to do.
Always good to keep an open mind though.

I wouldn't say the game is too small, but probably not run off a powerful enough engine to be able to do flying mounts. We'll see though, unless I quit first. LOL

It has something to do with the god's coming back so maybe you need to have done TWW quest? I guessing it is the skilling verison of prayer.

Maybe the skill will increase your chance of getting a rare SoF item.

No need for the violent response...I was just pointing it out for you, now you've learnt something. Just because I know what they are, does not mean that I buy them myself, not that there should be any problem if I do buy something I want to get.

This new skill could be the opening to new things such as new armor, items, quest, etc.

Hopefully it will be as cool as it sounds.
