It's been a while, but now is the perfect time to introduce our next Skill into the game.
Classed as a "Gathering" Skill, Agility is designed to provide numerous "Global Active Passives" to your character that can assist with pretty much all areas of the game. Almost all numbers can be affected by Agility in one way or another.
You are given the task of constructing your very own Agility Obstacle Course, with each obstacle you build coming equipped with different Agility XP rates, GP Rates, time to complete (Obsatacle Interval) and Global Active Passives attached to it.
Starting at the very first obstacle, your character will complete each Obstacle in their respective order until a lap is complete. Upon completing a lap, you will restart the Obstacle Course and go again. You cannot choose which obstacle to start it, it is always the first.
Strategic planning and thinking will come into effect with this Skill, and how you utilise the various Obstacles is entirely up to you.
For every 10 Agility Levels, you will be provided with an empty spot to construct an Obstacle of your choosing. All obstacles are categorized to suit their respective position within your Agility Course, meaning you can't place an Obstacle anywhere you like. In total, there is roughly 43 Obstacles to build, each with individual Masteries to complete.
These Obstacles, as mentioned above, come equipped with various benefits, buffs and debuffs. It is up to you to make a decision as to which Obstacle is best suits your current needs.
Building an Obstacle is not free. There is always a GP cost attached to it, and some later obstacles require various extra Items to build.
Active & Inactive Obstacles
When building an Obstacle, the Global Active Passives provided are always active in most circumstances.
An Obstacle becomes inactive if there is a gap in your Obstacle Course prior to it. Inactive Obstacles disable their respective Global Active Passives. The gap must be filled before they reactivate.
Remember, if you cannot reach the Obstacle during your training, that Obstacle will be inactive. This also means you cannot gain any XP or GP from this Obstacle. Don't worry though, the game will tell you if an Obstacle is inactive.
Obstacle Cost Reductions
I'll be honest, Obstacles are not cheap, especially late game.
You will find yourself swapping Obstacles quite consistently based on what your current goal is throughout the game. To help with this, there is many ways you can reduce the cost of Obstacles to ease the burden of costs.
Here are some ways to ease the pain:
- Every time you construct an Obstacle, you gain +4% Item Cost Reduction for that Obstacle only. Stacks up to 10 times maximum for a total of +40% Item Cost Reduction.
- Reaching Level 80 Mastery will grant +10% Cost Reduction for that Obstacle only.
- Reaching Level 95 Mastery will grant +10% Cost Reduction for that Obstacle only.
- 50% Mastery Pool bonus grants +10% Cost Reduction for all Obstacles.
- 95% Mastery Pool bonus grants +15% Item Cost Reduction for all Obstacles.
- Agility Skillcape (And Max/Completion Cape) grants +20% Cost Reduction for all Obstacles while equipped.
Item Cost Reduction is capped at 95%.
Upon reaching Level 99 in Agility, you will unlock the option to construct a "Passive Pillar". This is a unique benefit provided by Agility that acts like an Obstacle, when it actually isn't.
Passive Pillars provide Global Active Passives just like Obstacles, but do not provide any XP or GP, and has no Mastery attached to it. These Pillars simply sit there and provide you the bonuses, as long as the entire Agility Course is constructed (No gaps).
They cost a lot, are not affected by Cost Reductions, but you will enjoy the benefits they provide.
With the inclusion of a new Skill, that also means a new Pet is introduced alongside it!
To help you along for this journey, a new Potion has been added to the game to give you that much needed, totally not illegal boost to your Obstacle Course training.
And yes, a new Potion means new Masteries for Herblore ;)
What good is a new Skill without a nice Cape to wear and brag about?
The 3rd and final Official Gamemode that will change everything about the way you play the game.
Adventure Mode bring a whole new challenge to the game, forcing you to make strategic decisions at every step of your journey.
In this Gamemode, Skills are locked behind a GP cost that must be unlocked individually. Every time you decide to unlock a Skill, the cost of the next unlock increases.
At the start of the Gamemode, the only Skill available to you are Attack, Strength, Defence and Hitpoints. Everything else is locked.
To help kickstart your new adventure, you are given a Bronze Weapon and 10 Basic Food. So generous, right?
Adventure Mode is also bound by the same Combat Triangle Modifiers you find in Hardcore Mode.
Sounds easy, what's the catch?
Leveling Skills in Adventure Mode is completely different to Standard. Non-Combat Skill Levels cannot go above your Combat Level.
When you eventually reach the maximum level, the Skill will still continue to train as normal, but you won't receive any further XP. You will need to go back into Combat, and level your Combat Level.
Summarized Rules of Adventure Mode
- Skills are locked behind a GP cost to unlock.
- Start with only Attack, Strength, Defence & Hitpoints unlocked.
- A Bronze Weapon and 10 Basic Food is provided in your bank at the start.
- Your Non-Combat Skill Levels cannot go above your Combat Level.
- Hitpoints, Damage, and Healing numbers are multiplied by a future 10 (Just a visual change).
- Harsher Combat Triangle Modifiers. Same as Hardcore Mode.
- This is a safe Gamemode. It is okay to die.
Boss Pets have finally arrived to the game!
These cute little critters can be found in every single Dungeon in the game. Upon killing a Boss in a dungeon, you have a chance of obtaining one of the Boss Pets!
These Boss Pets provide a small Combat bonus to assist you in your adventures.
For those curious, the Into the Mist Boss Pet required a set 5 completions of the Dungeon. This is also unlocked retroactively, so there is no need to complete another 5.
Golbin Raid - Stage 2
The long awaited Stage 2 of the Golbin Raid Development Plan has finally arrived.
