When can we expect new skill in OSRS?

Developers have a very specific way of deciding what a new skill in OSRS will be. The process will include these steps, with no clear timelines:

  1. Voting if a new skill is needed (done!)
  2. Community Consultation
  3. Skill Pitches
  4. Refinement
  5. Locking in the Skill
  6. Try the Beta
  7. Consulting further with players
  8. Official introduction of the new skill in OSRS.

As you can see, the process will take time, but everything will be done in agreement with the players. The new skill in Old School RuneScape is expected in 2023. How fast it will be part of the game depends on the players' feedback and the time developers will take to make it right. You can be part of the process by joining the official OSRS forum, following the @OldSchoolRS Twitter account, or joining OSRS Discord Server.
