When's the long overdue mining and smithing rework coming? We've been told it would be done this year but when is it going to be done and any news so far?

Since we've already waited for over a year now and it still hasn't been released yet?

The reason it didn't come out last year was because the players complained so much. They were afraid it would kill the market. So Jagex stopped and went back to the drawing board to see how to consider that.

They said that it wasn't supposed to come out to the second part of this year. And the first part is just now ending. They still have 6 months.

Expansion 2, with Invention Batch 2, is most likely a Godless/Skilling based expansion. Mining and Smithing might come out with it.

They have been having a lot of Dev Blogs and videos over it if you care to look that are rather recent. They can be found here in the forums somewhere, videos on Youtube and Twitch.

I also want to know when it will be released, I trained up a new character but I didnt train mining and smithing because I want to wait for it, but I have missed a lot of content, especially invention

Don't forget that the rework will have a massive impact on RuneScape.

The value of all metal armours are going down, new ores/armours are coming in to the game.
Droptables have to be reworked, minigames/quests have to be done.

T92 power armour is going to be a thing, should be balanced.

I'd rather have that they take another year and that the rework will be perfect, then that they rush it because we want it so bad.
You know what happens when Jagex rush things.

I have to agree. There is going to be a massive impact on the entire game. And needs to be done perfectly.

And even then, I think it will bring in a lot of hate. Getting run items from high level slayer monsters will be like it was getting black and mithril armor and weapons from Abby Demons ect.

I understand wanting to tweak it to perfection but I really don't think listening to player complaints is the way to go.

Slayers aren't going to agree to anything that removes Rune from drop tables, they'd rather the actual progression of the game remain broken so they can keep getting gains from useless tier 50 gear.

If you keep pushing it back to listen to people like that, the update will never get released.

This is what frustrates me with jagex, they release dev blogs get people involved then you hear nothing for months.

Given that jagex is known for ditching projects without saying anything, you would of thought the communication would be more transparent.
