Mod Jack justifies ignoring other high level bosses, because it's the rare item drops that make up the majority of the long term GP/hr. However, he fails to realise that:

-> adamantite and rune stone spirits are now T40 and T50, a nerf from the previous T70 and T85 mining ores.
-> there isn't an adaquate supply of T90 stone spirits (especially light animica), therefore meaning that no one will use them as their value is 2x the price of the corresponding ore.

It just baffles me that he would think that stone spirits aren't the problem, when clearly they are in their current form. Low level stone spirits are being dropped like candy, and high level stone spirits have little to no supply. The problem of stone spirits are even more compounded when you consider how AFK mining is in its current form and that some players are using 10+ alts to further make ores worthless.

The 100% double ore is injecting so much ore into the economy, and making smithing more AFK will not suddenly make high level players do smithing past 99. People have to realise that if you make like 20-30m+/hr at high level bossing, you'd not waste your time mining with the stone spirits you obtained as a drop as you're sacrificing the potential GP/hr you'd make doing high level bossing.

Seriously, if stone spirits were removed off bossing drop tables, then PVMers would be happy as you would obtain other better drops slightly more frequently, as these drops are usually on some "common" drop table and would not effect the rare drops. Skillers would be happier, as their ores are now worth more since there's lower supply. Why not move stone spirits to the "rare drop table" that's accessed through the skilling Seren Spirits?
Hard -> 3a Range Top (#357), 3a Full Helm (#439), Barrows Dye (#1755)
Elite -> Shadow Dye (#510), Barrows Dye (#680, #1567), 3a Druidic Staff (#969), Sack of Effigies (#972), Ice Dye (#1539)
Master -> Barrows Dye (#480)

I can tell you the gw2 update wasnt anything to write home about. Still getting about as many luminite, necrite and phasmatite stone spirit drops as before. NO real improvement.

They really screwed up boss drop tables with these stone spirits, and imo the only solution is to get them the hell out of the drop tables altogether.

to be honest id prefer a nice chunk of iron ore sprites as opposed to addy, as iron/steel titans and cballs are useful in end game, where as addy has no other use than masterwork in end game

I just don't understand how spirit stones can be thought as a fine replacement for what was tier 70 and 85 tier item drops, i didn't re roll every time i got coal or addy ores, but every time i get these spirit stones i roll for the pet every time. it's awful.
