A stone spirit is supposed to be as good as an ore, except that it prevents people from getitng ores without doing some mining.

In practice, though, stone spirits are not very valuable.

This makes sense: if I want to train Smithing without doing a lot of mining to get the ores, I'd go to the Grand Exchange to buy ore, not stone spirits.

But it has occurred to me that there's another problem.

I take stone spirits with me when I mine to get "free" ore.

How often do I have to click?

Every time my backpack gets full, I click once to fill my ore box, then once back on the rock.

So to get X amount of ores, with or without stone spirits, I click the same number of times. The only thing I save is time, I get ore quicker.

Well, then, it's obvious what has to be done to fix stone spirits so that they're worth something, and it seems like each one gives you an ore for free.

Have the extra ore from a stone spirit get sent straight to your metal bank.

No way to improve them tbh, if they fixed them demand would go up a bit and gp saved getting that extra ore won't be worth much extra profit, should just be removed.


No support.

Just because you dont like something or it hurts your profitz doesnt mean it needs to be removed.

Something needs to be done to increase demand because right now they are useless and are more like a troll drop, if not worse than one because it's just not useful to anyone. .

Considering how common they are, it's not just about my profits, it's game breaking to add 200gp drops at a common rate. starting to get the feeling you don't play the game and if you do, you afk-scape while no lifing forum count.

Even if they increased demand it's locked by ore prices so removal is only way or JaGeX will be constantly changing how many we get from drops.

Just let them dissemble into something useful.

I don't think if anything is done to stone spirits at all, it won't make them close to what they were before the updates because their main purpose to lower profits from PvM.

Fail to see how it is?

I wouldn't mind if they got removed. It makes sense if they serve no real purpose.


They do serve a purpose, just not for you.

Thats completely different.
