Why oh why did Jagex change crafting Redstone from Potion Flask to Ogre Flask??

For I don't know how long now I have been crafting Redstone into Potion Flasks, for the whole time I have been it was set automatically on crafting Potion Flasks so by habit I just automatically hit the crafting button. And because of the change, you lose out big time financially and I just can't work out why Jagex would do this??
Are Ogre Flask's more popular than Potion Flasks?
What was the point of this change?
If they wanted to make a change why not have no items selected so no one can make a huge financial mistake??

I just don't get this change :|

Haven't logged in for about 5 days so didn't know this change had taken place.

I'm assuming it defaults to Ogre flask as this gives considerably more xp than the ordinary Potion flasks.

Oh well, at least you only lost one day in profits. Not the end of the world.

Solution: pay attention to the game and don't try to (semi-)AFK everything ;)

I wasn't afking ty very much - if you play the game you will know after doing something for a long period of time you automatically do things, it becomes habit.

I would still like to know why they changed it??

^twice now :|

Does it give more xp - I'm not sure??

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All I know it makes two flasks out of approx 26 ores and you can't sell them - I am not sure what they are used for. I am not sure how much in-game use they have? <- That's what I want to know, do players mostly make Ogre flasks? Are they are popular thing to make and if so is this the reason they changed it??

Another similar change they made I noticed at the same time is when I go to Weave I now have to click what I want to weave they have removed the default from a specific item. <- I don't understand why they made this change but with the potion flask to ogre flask they switched the default item??

I just don't get it.

It looks like this happened back in March



You can read more about it at

https://runescape.wiki/w/Ogre_flask_(empty)

but it seems the primary purpose/reason is to enhance the effects of the spa pools: It can be used on any of the spa pools in Oo'glog to hold 6 doses of ogre spa pool waters, allowing the effects to be used anywhere.

This seems to be a user error that can easily be corrected, as Arch mentioned, by paying attention.

It's still not answering my question though why make this change and thank you for your explanation Twillow.

It's a habit, like giving up cigarettes and such - you do something repetitively it becomes automatic, it's not that I am not concentrating as I watch the game - when I do my dailies I am watching what I do, no other screens are open, nor is anyone around. It's creating a new habit which often doesn't happen overnight <- I hope I don't do it again.


I would really like to know why they made these changes.
