This is my only problem with the newest update to the game. I mostly just PVM, so the mining and smithing aspect of it doesn't concern me all that much but the drop table's they changed aren't working for me. The Plated Rune Salvage hardly sells for under alch price, and not very fast. So i'm and other are basically forced to alch it or disassemble it. My friend's reply to this with oh just use a spring cleaner! That idea doesn't work either at boss like Araxxor, where you loot the corpse.

The other drop that just plain old sucks. Are the stone spirits for example i'm doing a high level pvm boss like Araxxor who used to drop Adamanite ore and coal. Now he drops there spirit versions which I haven't managed to sell a single one of even under 50% of their current G.E Value.

Anyone else feeling the same way about these new drops? I hate them.

Be right back, setting up a load of GE purchases to buy plated salvage at current prices before it goes up to ~1k under alch :)

Edit: Nothing buying... If you've reached your sell limit I'll buy a load at 3k under alch price ;)

@Roxas I completely agree.

Ran a vindicta run of 32 kills last night. about 15-20 of those kills ended up being stone spirits so I basically only got 12-17 kills worth of drops from vindicta.

I hope they fix this fast as I now have zero motivation to run bosses that have a chance at dropping these. Why would I want to run a boss that has the potential to "not drop anything" fairly frequently? I can't speak to the salvaged rune stuff as I didn't get any during this run but the stone spirits need to be replaced 100%.

@David, Shut up and take your negativity elsewhere.

Only the nerd lazy afking skillers and trash pvmers like the fact that boss drops got nerfed. This update is complete trash for us bossers. I'm quitting rs if this bullshit isn't fixed. Nobody wants some gay ass stone spirits. And why are they the same tier when rune is now nerfed? They make no sense at all. All these morons are rejoicing in their skilling gp and easy slayer tasks because us skilled bossers are losing gp to this trash. It takes more skill to boss plus upkeep, supplies, etc... so bossing should make more gp.

The drops aren't the problem.

Stone Spirits are essentially bottled ore. They should be just as easy to sell as the ores themselves. They're not, but that's because there is a really low buy-limit on Stone Spirits - ie. the players out there who would be buying thousands of Stone Spirits cannot do so easily without using alt accounts. If players can't buy them, even when there are a ton on the market, how are you supposed to sell the ones you get as boss drops?

This is something the team have said they're going to look into and fix.

I would like to make a slight correction: Stone Spirits generally should be worth less than the ore (otherwise, skillers are spending extra time for the 'convenience' of going back to the bank more often.

Furthermore given that stone spirits need to first be used by skillers in order to convert them into items usable elsewhere, it presents a similar issue to herb seeds in that it is entirely possible for the supply to completely outstrip demand due to the time it takes for skillers to use them before producing the final product. Acknowledging this, it is even more likely that a stone spirit be worth less than their respective ore.

Hopefully this won't be anywhere near as wide a divide as seeds vs herbs since stone spirits are much faster to convert to their ore. But given that they only provide one ore per spirit when seeds provide several herbs, it is entirely possible that they be worth far less than their respective ore.

Only time will tell as the market settles.
