Consider this too: You can kill a blue dragon and the guaranteed drop of the hide and bone are not much less in value than the above example and obviously it takes well less time to kill blue dragons than a mid-tier boss.

This needs an adjustment.


Consider this; how often will that Blue Dragon drop a nearly 30M drop? Hell, how often will it drop a 200-500K drop?

Not every kill on a mid-tier boss needs to be profitable, and Vindicta in particular was not affected by the M&S rework nearly as badly as people seem to believe. While the profit you make in common drops might have taken a bit of a hit, Lances and Crests have gone up a bit to make up for it, and the overall profit is very similar to what it was before the rework.

At the end of the day ore was only a small part of the profit from most bosses. The bigger problem with stone spirits is they're not even particularly useful for what they were intended to be used for.

The truth is you're the weak, and I'm the tyranny of evil men. But I'm tryin'. I'm tryin' real hard to be the shepherd.

Right. No argument here other than the fact it wasn't my point.

Well, I have quite a bit of kills across the spectrum of the main four GWD2 bosses so I disagree. There was a base value for drops, coins and like the noted raw sharks that set the floor at about 50k-60k. That seems to be by design and that has changed dramatically. The new floor is much lower now as per my example.

Maybe I didn't make it clear enough, but that's what I was talking about. The original coal/rune ore and rune bar drops weren't as common as their replacements are now. Half the drops in an hour instance weren't those items. Now they are. The frequency of those drops, now stone spirits instead of ores and bars, has increased. The lack of usefulness of those drops has compounded the issue of their diminished value.

Replacing some skilling material drops for PVM-related drops could help as I proposed here. Adding a new drop to the tables would decrease the frequency of getting the other drops, namely stone spirits.

Same, fixing them is a waste of time. Their sadly only useful to miners if their way under ore value for extra profits but so far most stone spirits I'm getting are now 'Low Tier', who is going to buy these if everyone will afk to 90+. The once T85 Runite is now T50, In OSRS i afked 40-60+ mining in maybe 2-3 days at motherlode mine while doing clues in rs3 and that's slower than power mining iron, now that it's afk and prob faster than OSRS rates who is honestly going to be needing extra runite lol. THINK JAGEX SOLD THEIR LOGIC FOR MTX TACTICS...95% focused on MTX, 5% at well thought out updates <---can't deny this lmao; Which updates have been the best designed? were they MTX related? Yes :P...can't joke on this one haha MTX Updates were all clones of the past ones, different names/items but the same. Well thought out updates might not exist anymore, would be different if they tried to fix stuff but now that months have passed and most Mining & Smithing issues still untouched , Guess me being locked in at 5$ per month and deciding to pay more for VIP and the odd MTX doesn't help JaGeX out, evidence is clearing displayed at how they value it's player base.
