Old School Runescape Sailing

It's official. Following weeks of back-and-forth debate, Old School Runescape players have voted for a new skill to be further refined and hopefully added to the game. The Sailing skill has won a close vote as a collective "arrr" can be heard on the wind from all of the players who want to be pirates.

The Sailing skill line took the win with 59.1% of the votes (a total of 105,799 votes). 178,951 players took part in the poll to determine the next skill line to be refined in the game.

Here's a breakdown of how the votes went:

(Note that this was a multiple choice vote, so totals equal more than 100% since players could choose multiple options)

Question 1 - After reading the new skill pitch blog, which concept(s) for a new skill in OSRS would you be happy to see refined further? Select all that apply.

-Sailing - 59.1% (105,799 votes)
