I've been looking through the update mechanics regarding the spring cleaner. I'm currently tier 2 and was going to upgrade but then I decided to look into if it would even be used after update. What's everyone else's thought? We are 2 weeks away so I can continue using it as is with no problem. Will the new version that alchs be worth it? Think it's like 7mil for springs to get to tier 3 from where I am. ( I'm cheap and currently hover around 10mil as most my money goes into upgrading armour)
I use it only for the higher dragonhide armors, rune weapons, and rune armor. I do a lot of Abyssal Demons, which drop a lot of rune daggers. When I get a rune dagger (GE:3940 gp currently), I can either high alch it for 4800gp - 428, the cost of a nature rune and profit 4372 or use 1 spring (which at minimum get me 1 runite ore) 12407gp(runite ore) - 3266pg (for spring) = 9141gp profit (more if I get the coal too). I only break down items that make more money then alching.
With new update, it can disassemble (worthless to me) or alch, with no cost of runes at cost of springs. If prices don't change and it alches a rune dagger (which will most likely have a lower alch value after update), it would be cheaper to buy a nature rune and 5 fire runes then use 1 spring.... That's how I'm seeing it so makes me unsure about spending money to upgrade it.
I mean auto disassembling cheap salvage is a neat extra. It won't even cost you any springs, at most a few xp (not sure if it granted some or not) - so it cleans up drops you wouldn't have wanted to sacrifice your springs for. Auto alching the more valuable ones might be worth a bit less than having them broken down to their raw materials right now, but considering the costs of springs the main advantage still would be you do not have to bother with parts of the loot at all. And well - other drops than metal behave like they do now, the only thing that could affect them would be changing prices for springs.Improvements: Tooltip / (F2P) QoL v2 Quick Fixes: Invention
