As I said to another poster, Well you killed mining, Jagex. What is the point of all those ores, now, if you just sit in front of one, like a bot, and fill your inventory?

You also killed the investments of many. Luckily I saw what a mistake this was going to be, weeks ago, and sold over 200k ore. Runite is already crashing.

I've said this before, in this move it is even more apparent: You seem to miss the point of your own game. You seem to think that people just want to get stuff easy, with no competition, with no challenge. That is not how people are. The fundamental excitement over this game is because you have to fight to get stuff, win stuff, and it hurts because you lose stuff. If you just hand it to them... us... it might be fun for a few weeks, but after that, what is the point?

You may as well just hand a few billion gp to everyone... a few million ore... and walk away. But of course, that would be boring as crap.

... as mining is, now. Pointless.

You have new more valuable ore to mine now.


No we don't. P2P does, F2P only has cheap ores now instead of the expensive ones we had.


Sorry, but the focus of the rework was to specifically rebalance ore and metal tiering.

Runite was never intended to be as expensive as it was for as long as it was.

Ah yes, balancing it for the sake of being able to call it balanced. We could also continue that trend and mess up slayer. Level 70 seems like a decent req for abby demons, considering the whip only requires 70 attack. And since slayer creatures don't drop gear above level 99, let's just revert it back to max at 99 instead of 120. But most players don't want that, do they? That's kind of where the hypocracy comes into play. If it's F2P that's getting the shit end of the stick it's fine, but if the exact same thing would've happened to a beloved P2P skill shit would hit the fan.
Also, your last argument is moot. The price of rune was decided by Jagex themselves (alch price), if anything the actual value already decreased a lot due to inflation. So yes, it was intended to be as expensive as it was.

Except Slayer mobs aren't tiered out like combat gear... Because that's not how mobs work. Sorry.

I woulnd't mind f2p getting the tier of ore above rune but I have no problem with f2p getting nothing in this rework. They can make maybe 1 ore available in the future for f2p. F2p has been given so much over the last 2 years.

They drop specific combat gear that cannot be acquired through other mobs. So if it makes senses to lower rune to level 50 then it also makes sense to lower slayer mobs to the requirements of their unique drops. It doesn't make sense to have someone slay their way to 85 just to get a t70 weapon, which is precisely the argument people used for lowering the requirements on rune. I guess people only want tierscape and balance if it suits them.
