Since February, RuneScape fans have been on a roll thanks to the newly launched Fort Forinthry storyline. It was first announced during the Jagex Winter Summit last year and has already featured two chapters alongside a mini-event. During the summit, the developers also announced the introduction of the highly anticipated Necromancy skill to the game.

Well, RuneScape players are in for another surprise because the deadly combat skill is finally making its way to the MMORPG. As it’s evidently seen in the jaw-dropping trailer, the addition to the Necromancy skill really enhances RuneScape’s combat as it offers a brand new playstyle that is independent of the pre-existing forms.
