Inventor's workbench

Inventor's workbenches are pieces of interactive scenery found in a selection of locations across Gielinor as part of the Invention skill. They have two options: Discover and Manufacture. Discover allows players to create blueprints for new devices or research certain components or concepts. Manufacture allows players to use their stored components to create new devices and equipment.

Attempting to use the Inventor's workbench in the Invention Guild for the first time will direct players to talk to Doc, if they haven't already.


Inventor's workbenches can be found in 7 locations throughout the game, though the Invention Guild location is by far the most commonly used. The bench in Seers' Village is the closest to a lodestone. The bench in Keldagrim is the closest to a consistent teleport (excluding a max guild skill portal), being very close to the Keldagrim teleport of Luck of the dwarves. Varrock Teleport brings the player a short distance east of one without the investment in the aforementioned ring. The bench in Seer's Village can be reached for no cost through the Lodestone Network, but is slower.
