This is a very unfortunate change. These rocks have now become an incredibly weak source of income in comparison to most ores, and even ores similar to their own level.

Entire REMOVAL of the Onyx without some sort of replacement, whether it be a nerfed replacement or a major change to the gem drop calculation, basically kills the rocks.

I could understand for NORMAL accounts, limiting the drops and such. However there are many ironman players who are disgruntled at this change as well, as it makes it so you need to PVM or get a lucky geode to pull an Onyx now. By the way, gem rocks don't drop geodes.


A few suggestions;
1. Onyx dust
2. New geode type with high drop chance for Onyx.
3. New type of gem for alchemy (nearly the same price as uncut onyx)
4. Different types of gem shards that can be alched for different values, with no other purpose.

---

Total REMOVAL is such a shortsighted decision.

Mod Shauny and the rest of Jagex are liars. They don't care. They couldn't care less.

PVM change crashed onyx from 2.7m to 1.6 and they didn't give a damn.

Skill change dropped them from 1.6 to 1.09 (alch price) and suddenly the world is ending. They're full of crap. They don't care at all.

As a comparison to what they removed.

If I remove ALL my onyx that I've mined in the past TWO WEEKS, I have less than 75m in money. Which is nearly 8-10 hours a day in mining, albeit afk mining mostly, but mining nonetheless. Adding the 130 onyx back into the pile, and I've got a bit over 200m worth of gems, that I will be refusing to sell.

That's OVER a 150% loss of income, if I were to stay at these rocks. (-66%~)

I've simply moved to Ani for now, as I refuse to get ~450k an hour for mining gems, when I can just smash open geodes for more from ani/banite.

Onyx dust could be a nice replacement if done properly. It definitely should of been changed though, was way too OP.

Have you noticed how when jagex mods screw over skillers they all hide when the complains come in.
But when pvm'ers complain they practically fall over each other trying to kiss their butts.
This update has nothing to with balance and all to do with giving pvm'ers a better gp source.
A nerf is a nerf no matter how you word it Shauny .

the difference is, pvmers cry when things are unbalanced, and try to get them balanced again

skillers, on the other hand, like things unbalanced, because they like being able to earn as much as pvmers without having to;

1. pay for supplies
2. risk anything
3. learn anything
4. do anything
5. have any kind of real life skill

Although its unfortunate to see a skilling money making method being removed, it was for the better.
The speed at which they could be obtained from afking vs pvm was very unbalanced.
I do however agree skilling needs some more money making methods, mining anima ore was a step in the right direction but they completely messed up the stone spirit thing.
If they fixed those both pvmers and skillers will benefit as currently getting luminite drop is worse than a uncut diamond from lotd.

PvMers crashed onyx prices?

If I recall correctly, onyx was first released with elder kiln or am I wrong? And elder kiln is a hard raid style pvm (unless you use obsidian armour which makes it much easier). In other words, Onyx used to require only pvm before the release of Menaphos thieving for Menaphite gift offerings and geodes.

In my opinion, mining sholdn't give onyxes at all. Sorry. But then you get first age coins that alch for 1m each, about the same as onyxes are currently worth.

I rather keep onyx pvm related only.
