Hello everyone,

Today, we released a hotfix to remove the ability to mine Uncut Onyxes from Gem Rocks. The reason for this that the amount of Onyxes in-game has increased by almost double since the Mining and Smithing rework and that it was an unsustainable amount of Onyxes being produced from Mining.

The amount of Onyxes being mined from Gem Rocks meant that over 10,000% more Uncut Onyxes were entering the game from Mining than before the update. This has completely saturated the game with Uncut Onyxes and meant that the gem has hit its alch price.

This hotfix allows us to try and salvage the Uncut Onyx market, it is a very valuable commodity in the RuneScape economy and had a healthy market prior to this problem. It will take time to recover but we hope that this hotfix today will allow it to start recovering.

We realise that this may be seen as a nerf to profitibility of skillers and want to reassure that this simply isn't the case. We want skilling to be profitable and will continue to release content in the future that help promote this.

Thanks,

What a load of crap, items fall all the time, stop screwing with the market to keep a small community happy. The philosopher troll, born with the hands of a skiller and the mind of a jester.
