There is one functionality that is lost though. The portable forge gave extra bars, something the new forge allows, yet you can't smelt gold via metalbank, so you are not going to get extra bars.

if the entirety of smelting gold and silver transfers to a portable crafter, sure then I don't see a problem. But for now smelting gold and silver is painfully awkward

So let me get this straight... First,I have to complete a quest to be ALLOWED to smelt gold more than 28 at a time... THEN you morons f****d up the gauntlets for said quest so that in order to make them smelting gloves you have to work around it by making them cooking gauntlets first THEN spending 25k to convert them because your coders are f*****g idiots and messed that up too... THEN to top alllllll that off, the gauntlets do absolutely f*** all anyway now?!?! Jesus Murphy, tell the dev team to stop letting their autistic f*****g kids play at the PCs while the grownups smoke meth in the bathroom... Be thankful your staff remain anonymous because rest assured if they were publicly known I would find enough gold to forge a pair of life sized smithing gloves and shove them straight up one if the idiot's a**es!!!

Just noticed the xp was going to write up a complaint but nice someone else noticed. Ya was another option for leveling smithing besides normal ores and even more xp if you had the gloves from doing the quest but, kind of defeats the purpose of getting them. And going out and mining and smithing for so little xp. Kind of reminds me a little of flax noone wants to do so they depend on the bots. Why not make it worth the time and effort to do for players so they don't have to depend on them...Kind of going to kill crafting more people probably won't make the jewelry much just cut gems or other stuff instead of wasting time on making the bars.

I just came back to the game after the smelting update and this whole gold smelting fiasco has really dissuaded me from playing. I even had a few thousand ore that I was in the middle of smelting that now I can't do. SAD!

Before the update, you could click on the gold bar and on the furnace and make whichever jewelry you were wanted with the gem and appropriate craft level.

After the update, you click on the gold bar and the furnace and all you get is the metal bank.

If you wanted to make jewelry to complete a achievement you are out of luck.

Im mad they went from 40kxp/hr to 7kxp/hr smelting gold though. Thats really extreme.
Especially because we have to manually smelt our gold now, which is a ******* ***** as an ironman.

Wish they would have at least warned us they were killing juju pots and superheat.
The only reason I play runescape is because its so **** that it makes me want to stop playing video games.

They did.


All of this info was available for at least six months (if not longer) before the update hit.
Provided you followed the rework and did your research.
