Hello,

Tbh this update should be undone. It is worse than the EoC update, the number of active players is dropping faster than the price of the Rune Platebody.

Seriously, whose idea was it to over-complicate the system like this? Now we have 7 types of rune platebody, thousands of rune items, some rune items with no names so nobody knows what they are, apart from the fact that they are rune items that have the old alching price, nobody knows what does what, there is absolutely no working system anymore. The god wars armours are now worthless, making most boss fights useless. Instead of camping nex to wait for torva to drop now you can just mine some ores and make a better armor.

I have a suggestion: Take us back to the game before the rework. This rework is a failure, it is worse than EoC and it has killed what was left of RuneScape. Alternatively, release a legacy smithing and mining mode for the players who love the game.

Also, for the love of god get some british billionaire to buy the game back, we do not need chinese capitalism in the game of our childhood.

Sincerely,
A veteran.

Cool Troll attempt dude, but next time, you might wanna brush up on the actual update, instead of jumping in with old info.

Honestly unless you're making the masterwork gear it's still pretty damned simple.

MINING: you click the rock and ore comes out.
SMELTING: you take the ores and smelt them into bars.
SMITHING: you hammer the bars into stuff.

The core is still there. You mostly just get a choice as to how AFK you want those various steps to be.

"items we don't understand" are called salvage. Alch or disassemble them, just like you did to all your excess slayer drops before. It's literally all they do.

If you're confused, go to the Artisan's Workshop and ask some people about it. This isn't Invention, you'll pick up on it within a minute or two of doing any of the above actions.

Why should useless updates be added? We don't need the crappy mining back imo. this is much better. The only problem I see with this is that there was too many items with this rework. Other then that it seems fine. The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.

Somebody must be blind not to see all the used to be dead mining and smithing places including the Artisan Workshop and Lava Flow Mine are full of active players now.

Like POF, items associated with the old systems dropped in prices but the new items provide new ways to train and new opportunites to make more profits the less boring way. Players like POF and players love M&S Rework.

I am looking for more combat and skilling reworks. :)

If you look at rs3 player count right now it's 36k Near nighttime hours. Before this rework came out it was getting 32k in peak hours per day. Now we are getting 40k+ in peak hours per day so ur not fooling anyone. The brightest ideas are the most undervalued.
