Artificer's measure detail.png

An artificer's measure is a skilling off-hand that requires level 99 Crafting and level 102 Archaeology to create. It provides benefits to the Crafting and Construction skills while equipped.

Boosts can be used to meet both the Crafting and Archaeology requirements. The player also implicitly needs level 40 Dungeoneering to obtain the upgraded gem bag, which is one of the items used to manufacture it. Unlike upgrading from the gem bag to the upgraded gem bag, the artificer's measure can be created whilst gems are in the upgraded gem bag; however, all gems it is holding are destroyed.

Partial completion of Legacy of Seergaze is a required to obtain a chain link mould. Access to Prifddinas is required to obtain crystal-flecked sandstone via mining; alternatively they can be found in treasure chests in player-owned port but this is not recommended.

Artificer's measures share gem inventory, which is why it is not advised to make multiple.

Effects[edit | edit source]

Crafting[edit | edit source]

  • The chance to activate the scroll of dexterity, which can save leather when crafting items, is multiplied by 1.25.
    • If the scroll of dexterity activates, the player gains an Artificer's Focus[sic] bonus, providing a 0.5% experience buff to Crafting and Construction (which stacks up to 10 times for 5% more experience) for 5 minutes, which can be refreshed.
  • The item acts as an improved upgraded gem bag, storing 100 of each gem up to dragonstone (up from 60 each). It retains the ability to automatically store gems picked up by the player when held in the off-hand or in the inventory.
  • The Voice of Seren effect in the Ithell district of Prifddinas, which increases Crafting and Construction experience from playing harps by 20% and makes them less likely to go out of tune, is always applied while playing them regardless of the current Voice of Seren. This does not stack with the actual Ithell Voice of Seren when it is active.
  • There is a 5% chance to duplicate any manufactured items while glassblowing and forming urns. This bonus also works when crafting potion flasks, crystal flasks and ogre flasks. Duplicated items are sent to the bank.

Construction[edit | edit source]

  • The chance to activate the scroll of proficiency, which can save planks when constructing furniture, is multiplied by 1.25
    • If the scroll of proficiency activates, the player gains an Artificer's Focus bonus, providing a 0.5% experience buff to Crafting and Construction (which stacks up to 10 times for 5% more experience) for 5 minutes, which can be refreshed.
  • The artificer's measure also provides a chance to increase progress while restoring statues during the fight with Croesus.

Creation[edit | edit source]

To create, click on blessed molten glass or glorious silvthril chain in the inventory which brings up crafting glassblowing window. Don't click on onyx which may craft onyx bolt tips. It may also be created at a furnace with smelting interface and selecting molten glass and artificer's measure, then begin project.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Artificer's measure is not currently augmentable; however, augmented versions of the item exist within the game files.
  • Due to the requirements attached to obtaining the glorious silvthril chain and blessed molten glass, the artificer's measure cannot be obtained by skill pures.
