PvMers crashed onyx prices?

If I recall correctly, onyx was first released with elder kiln or am I wrong? And elder kiln is a hard raid style pvm (unless you use obsidian armour which makes it much easier). In other words, Onyx used to require only pvm before the release of Menaphos thieving for Menaphite gift offerings and geodes.

In my opinion, mining sholdn't give onyxes at all. Sorry. But then you get first age coins that alch for 1m each, about the same as onyxes are currently worth.

I rather keep onyx pvm related only.

Completely wrong. Back before Wild/Free Trade removal, you could sell fire runes to shop for Tokkul. Only took 3M tokkul to buy onyx. No combat needed. So, yeah, it's all PVMer's fault.

Except for the fact when we CHOSE our limitations by making an ironman, onyxes were available from priff and helped us get ring of fortune before getting ovls etc for pvm, which I might add, takes a VERY long time.
Again you're asking for an exception for your mode to be easier.


STOP.

I see where the complaints are coming from now, and I can sympathize with the ironman players who skilled for uncut onyxes for the sake of building a safety net in combat. It can be acknowledged that in this scenario, onyxes can be wasted in bulk amounts on new content players aren't well versed in and can be a nuisance to replenish if a skilling method is removed for these types of players as they cannot access the grand exchange or trade with other players unlike us regular accounts.

Had onyxes never been implemented in Prifddinas (As I had initially assumed) until the Mining and Smithing rework before its removal recently, I wouldn't sympathise with the players who created ironmen to mine in Prifddinas as there is no way they could have made it to Prifddinas in time to complain about the removal of the onyxes.

Now that I understand onyxes have been around in Prifddinas gem rocks long enough for players to access them on ironmen, I conclude it is unfair for these players to have their habitual method of gameplay suddenly, and drastically altered. For this I can sympathize.

That said, I can offer two alternate methods to obtain onyxes without high level pvm or Elder Kiln:

1) Exchange fire runes for tokkul to purchase an onyx from the shop. This may be tedious, but it is the old way of obtaining an onyx (something I also just found out recently in this thread)

2) Thieve Menaphos citizens for offerings. Do not hand these in, open them for chances at an uncut onyx, or if lucky, 10 noted onyxes.

Hope the above helps and good luck.
