Do decorated mining urns at least give more xp/urn now to compensate?

If you're not an ironman, I'd suggest either biting the bullet and buying cheap gems to cut, or getting a friend/alt to idle for a while and use the assist system.

If you are an iron, consider stockpiling glass(orbs) and battlestaves and alch the result. Arhein sells 80 seaweed and Bert gives 84 Sand a day (+10 seaweed from aquarium if applicable). glue 13 sets together with lunar spell super glassmake and turn them into 14-20 a pop almost instantly. Assuming 90 sets are acquired a day, you can look forward to approximately 820 glass/week, 6300 craft xp for casting, and another 43k craft xp from making orbs. Between lunar island shop and naff, you can get anywhere from 28-100 battlestaves a day (but let's say you've done medium tasks for the sake of argument, and call it 52). Assuming you play it safe and go with fire orbs, that's 52*7=364 staves a week * 125 = 45.5k craft xp a week, OR, just shy of 95k craft xp/week for a few minutes a day.

If you don't wanna spend the extra time dealing with orbs, you can make lantern lenses for a bit more XP, and you can even buy some glass components from charter ships. After that, make lesser urns until the time comes, I guess.

Still, between this and the onyx "fix", jagex has really been showing their teeth lately.
thanks for the advice but im a level 3 ironman skiller..i cant alch or do most quests
Level 3 skiller ironman BTW

Seems like NerfScape is on a roll past few updates, I mean, wish it was few...think they're preparing this game for Mobile MTX, why else would they do so many unjustified nerfs, they want us to buy MTX like gold coin packs/bonds. Only logical at this point with nerfing Skilling/PvM profits.

'Not making enough gold coins? Don't worry buy a skilling booster pack or a few bonds.;)'

Prove me wrong JaGeX

Yes, it gives 51 xp for forming the urn, compared to 38 xp previously. The firing xp hasn't changed though, so perhaps it should be changed to something like 78 xp to be in line with the other decorated urns. However, I guess this was an intended fix for something that made no sense (to me), as I posted earlier:

Lvl 1-5 for cracked
Lvl 12-18 for fragile
Lvl 32-44 for plain
Lvl 48-61 for strong <- This is where the decorated mining urn was before
Lvl 76-84 for decorated <- This is where the decorated mining urn is now at lvl 78
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)

The fact you spent so much time in an investment is on you

Real life changes, mmos are no different

All you gotta do now is simple:

Craft strong mining urns instead until you get back to decorated

Not hard

Looks like the skill guide has been updated, so it isn't a bug, I'm afraid :(

Was this changed as part of the mining & smithing update?


That is reaaaaally annoying they would make that big of a change without any kind of heads up. I spent 15m on making decorated mining urns and I have 10m of urns to fire still which are untradeable. I can't fire them for 9 more crafting levels. Cant sell them can't use them just have 10m of unfired urns rotting in my bank now until I figure out how to train crafting another way that's profitable.


You couldve spread out your investment in other crafting xp methods such as buying bonds for th keys on protean weeks instead

You couldve also invested in strong urns as well

Gp making is not hard specially for skillers.

Invest gp made from skilling in strong urns to work with until you can use decorated

Not hard

Yeah it's REALLY annoying that this didn't even get a mention in the Patch Notes :( :(


Im not surprised

People bitch and whine too much about updates that jagex decided not to share or warn about updates anymore

Its why we have shadow updates instead

If i were a jmod id do the same

Updates/mistakes should always be mentioned in patch notes regardless of how important you perceive them or not. Period.

Also Bad w1zard add me in game. This is my main (ZA R A) :)

You're welcome to join my clan and use the crafting plot though I do think the xp isn't that great as an ironman, but it's better than 0xp you know!

You can also do the quests to unlock Temple Trekking/Burg De Rott Ramble.

Do This to get silver bars from reword tokens. This is pretty fast to get the bars, then smelt the bars into Tiaras(52.5 exp) or Symbols(50 EXP) note that symbols provide less exp but sell for twice as much to general stores so are petty profitable to do while getting crafting up.

Unstrung Holy Symbols: 60 GP each to store.

Tiaras: 30 GP each to store.

Love that business model, you would be a great JaGeX mod 'Guys, I have an idea...lets make the whole game pvp for 4 hours without telling anyone, who ever losses gp can make it back ;)'

^Joke not a flame.

All changes to a game should be declared, seems this past few months is LetsMakeManyCheapShotUpdates vs a few good ones. But then again I still think JaGeX is trying to run this game into the ground so they can close it and make OSRS main game as business wise it's more profitable ;)

1. How many people play rs3 vs OSRS? OSRS wins.
2. How many staff operates rs3 vs OSRS? oh gosh...bunch of money saved there already...
3. Graghics wise, they could roll out overrides in a heartbeat in OSRS over rs3

From a legal viewing, they are free to do whatever, just another good business transaction :P
