The Inferno Adze requires 92 Firemaking to earn, plus completing All Fired Up.
The requirements aren't quite as harsh as the Crystal Pick and Hatchet, but it is not as random to earn as the Dragon Hatchet and Pickaxes (dropped from certain monsters, or a rare item from certain activities like Crystal Triskelion)

How about for Augmenting it, we take a page from like the Tier 90 Power Armor:
In order to augment it, you have to attach a bunch of Divine Charges plus the Augmentor to it.
When it runs out of charges, you have to dismantle it. You can't siphon it.

In return:
The Inferno Adze stays a Level 60 hatchet with the 1/3 chance of burning a log
It gains a Level 60 mining ability (only good as long as there are charges left, it upgrades the equivalent of Rune Pickaxe to Dragon Pickaxe) but it doesn't gain any secondary effects like auto smelting an ore.

Why finally gain a Level 60 mining ability?
Well......
Augmenting the Dragon Pickaxe AND using requires:
- 60 mining
- 80 divination
- 80 crafting
- 80 smithing
- millions of gp or RNG

Augmenting the Inferno Adze AND using requires:
- 92 firemaking
- 61 woodcutting
- 41 mining (currently)
- quests
- 80 divination
- 80 crafting
- 80 smithing

so an upgrade to now doing equivalent to a Dragon Pickaxe (while it has charges) wouldn't seem like the worst tradeoff in the world
Are you questioning my insanity or my incompetence?
Some seek refuge in audacity. I seek refuge in absurdity.

I support making the adze augmentable in the manner you explained, however, I do not support granting it a free built in dragon pickaxe.

While what you stated does appear to justify the upgrade, one key difference is what is required to have the ability to use perks on a dragon pickaxe and hatchet.

As it currently stands, the adze requires:
- 92 firemaking
- 61 woodcutting
- 41 mining (currently)
- quests
- 80 divination
- 80 crafting
- 80 smithing
-280 logs of choice
-time (for completing the minigame)

The equivalent of your upgraded adze (individual tools) would require:
- 60 mining
- 80 divination
- 80 crafting
- 80 smithing
- a dragon pickaxe
-a dragon hatchet

Currently, if you want dragon level perks for both tools, you use 2 different tools that are not only separately augmented, but also have separate gizmos. This is important since some gizmos are not easy to get. Putting honed V on a t60 wc & mining adze would make it too beneficial compared to the current option, especially at lower invention levels.

While it is true that the dragon pick and hatchet can be siphoned [at 12 for full xp], I don't believe this is a fair trade-off for playing all fired up again. With magic logs costing 673 gp each, the adze is worth 188,440gp + whatever amount of time it takes for you to complete the game. If yew logs are used, the adze is worth 54,320gp + the time to complete the minigame.

Even further, when players are comfortable enough, they would use the cheapest logs, willow. For 7,000gp, you can buy enough willow logs (@25gp ea.) to light all beacons. This makes the adze worth effectively 7k gp + time for consecutive adzes. Ignoring the base price of the dragon pick/hatchet, this price is vastly cheaper than a standard siphon.

Granting an augmented adze a dpick would make it both BiS and OP for it's level (dragon/61).

And they said that about invention batch 2 not too long ago. "Not at this stage" from a post a year old isn't really a good indicator as to whether something is happening or not.


Personally I'd like to see the imcando pick and the adze combined instead of augmentation.
Don't forget – RuneScape members get TWO free spins a day instead of the usual one!
