My suggestion could save time and is not limited to bars/ores. I would argue its not a 'lazy' option either. Look at trout. Raw trout cost near enough 4x the cooked trout. Instead of taking a huge hit selling the cooked trout for a big loss, this spell could convert it into a higher tier fish etc. It promotes skilling, reduces losses and should help everyone of all levels.


This is an effect most online games feature: While the processed item is generally more useful (as it can be used for something else, but making processed items), it will almost always worth less as the raw material as that one still has some potential xp (or in other games skill points) bound.

Big exceptions are items that are inconvenient to make for some reason, recipe locked stuff (which RS isn't featuring too much, but of course you could demand higher prices for something not everyone is able to make), endgame items (as players won't care as much about xp anymore at that point) or ultra niche stuff - the upcoming masterwork armour from smithing will be an example for the first three points for instance - you'll need to be at max level to make it, you'll need to learn how to make it and it'll take a lot of time to create one.

Thing for that is - you assume, that prices would remain the same. Reality is if your suggestion comes to live like this they will quickly adapt - due to higher demand the low tier ressource will rise in value and due to higher supply the higher tiered one will drop. Basically you've managed to average the values out and maybe even caused some overall drop.

Divination transmution solves this problem as conversion rates aren't too generous and end up as a loss in many cases.
