For stone spirits to be useful, They have to be worth half the price of the regular ore. If anyone is using them all it does is crash ore prices twice as fast. Instead of getting a double ore can it be changed so that they give double xp instead? For example light and dark animica stone spirits would have 20k xp in each of them. You get double xp from mining and stone spirits would only count the base xp for them. You get 120 xp but it would only count as 60xp for the stone spirit. This would work with mining urns.


I also think we should have an option to disassemble these. Maybe have a chance for 4 materials and have a chance of simple and imbued parts/components. This should help give stone spirits more value.


Outside of perfect plus potions does anyone use these? I doubt it.

The double ore itself is fine, it just should give more (not necessarily double) xp for the extra ore - they're detrimental to use if your actual aim is getting xp, since you need to bank more often. If it just was something around 20 % more xp, it certainly could become something xp focused miners would use.

And yeah - disassembly would be a must, but likely just 1 material, since ore wouldn't give more either. Maybe spiritual as common as opposed to simple.

And well - they need to fix the still massive influx of adamant, runite and gold spirits and replace them by ones more adequate to the content they drop from. Also would help replacing some of them outright by salvage (especially when the drop was bar(s) before the rework).

Jagex doesn't set the price, the market does.

But if you want to bring life (and money) to skilling you need to remove all resource drops from monsters.

How would that bring more money to skilling?

Ppl dont like them for w/e reason now so i fail to see how removing them from drops will get ppl to magically start liking them?

Taking drops away from loot tables and making them only obtained from skilling means there is less of that item coming into the game. When there is less of an item coming into the game ot gains more value. How would that not make skilling make more money? Lol.

Stone spirits are just another ore. You either split even or lose money mining with them.

Its so very simple: One of the reasons people don't like doing it is because its poor money compared to combat. Removing sources while demand remains unchanged will increase the prices and could therefore entice more people to do skilling.
