Analysing an item

Analyse is an Invention ability unlocked during the Invention Tutorial, located under skilling spells. It requires 1 Invention (which in turn requires 80 Divination, Crafting, and Smithing) and the Inventor's tools (which are added to the tool belt during the tutorial). It can be cast on any item for free to determine what materials any item can be disassembled into, if it can.

Analyse cannot be used in the same places disassemble cannot. Additionally, items that cannot be disassembled will give the same message when analysed.

It will display an additional "This item is of very high value." warning for items worth more than 500,000 coins, as well as for some special cases such as Death lotus darts.
