ďLook at how broken mining and smithing is. Rune items are level 50, yet I canít make rune items. BUT, I can make tier 90 malevolent set with level 93 smithing lool. Rofl rofl.Ē

Anyone still remembers the joke above?

Looks like the jokeís on us now because Jagex took it too seroiusly.

Way too seriously.

Itís like back when you order MarkDonaldís and you get kicked from the Pmod infested fc, muted for tops three days and then permed from the fc for life.

Guys, the runite ore was a joke. Chill.

So what did Jagex do? Logically, all they need is to scale all ores down to their appropriate levels. Mithril - 30, adamantite - 40 and rune - 50. Done, sorted, thank me later.

No one asked them to wreck drop tables, remove metal gear, remove ore competition, introduce afk gear making methods that beat traditional pvm dropped gear.

But thatís what they did.

Itís like someone laughed at a Jmod for having a coffee stain on his desk so every single Jmod decide to not only replace the desk instead of wiping it, they throw out everything in the office, tear down the building and rebuild their office from scratch.

Setious over reaction.

Now look at all the whining on the forums lol.

Jokeís on all of us now.

People asked for this... I warned you all, but hey its not a huge issue and they are working on it? I hope..

Really the solution is simple it just took me a while to think of it.. remove all spirits from all sources then firmly decide where they should go before adding them again.

This time they wont be everywhere and crashing themselves because of the surplus, also people who don't want ore spirits will not be getting them as drops, People who do want them know exactly where to get them. win & win & win.
You're welcome.

You are utterly and completely wrong.

A good percentage of players wanted this. Many voted in favor of this.

And I'm not sure how long you've been playing, but this has been the plan for several years. A mining/smithing rework concept has been public knowledge since 2013.
The rework itself started summer/fall of 2017.
It has had a massive amount of player input over a 16 month period.

In addition, Jagex themselves agreed that constantly putting more and more Runite items on monster drop tables was "bad", but it was the only way to make them worthwhile so high level pvmers/bossers would do the content.
In the end, the only part of the community that was pissed off at the idea was a small portion of the pvm/boss community who got 100% of their resources thru bossing.
And farming bosses for addy/runite ores and bars was certainly not the way you were supposed to get them.

Now you are correct, that the devs converting the Steel-Rune drops to stone spirits of equal amount, especially since everyone knew that Rune was going to get horribly nerfed in value, was a bit of a kick in the pants.
As it flooded the market with mid-tier stone spirits for something that was getting devalued, it exacerbated the problem, further driving down the value of mining those ores.
Yet at the same time, they didn't include at least a few of the new stone spirits on drop tables.

Part of the logic made sense: don't put the new stuff out there to essentially recreate the old problem (ie: making it so the best way to farm the mining/smithing materials was only thru high end pvm)

I do find it a bit of a bummer how higher level mobs specifically high slayer mobs now have essentially worthless drop options. I like getting airut tasks, those require 92 slayer and at least a decent weapon to kill, and part of thier drop table now is lvl 40 ore spirits (addy) with the best on offer being rune, which we all know is now lvl 50.

92 slayer isnt an easy quicky skill point to reach it requires hundreds of tasks and thousands possibly tens of thousands of kills.

stone spirits are not a bad alternative to the raw ore or bars dropping but higher level stuff should drop higher level stuff. The person with the spirits still has to go out there and bash rocks to get the material benefit

I had noticed that no one asked for drops to be removed and did point that out when Slayer got corrupted logs. I had also noticed that everyone wants ore and bar drops. This is the problem with these forums and Jagex Kijin.

This is still a recent update? The other threads on the Rants board are like 3 weeks old by now..


There are several treasure hunter threads in this forum I also noticed. Another problem with these forums and Jagex.

What's wrong with leaving everything as is? If I were a Jmod employee like you said in your post lol, I'd have taken more time with coding updates.

Make runite ore level 50 first, then think about all the other things later. Most likely people will just be happy with level 50 runite and no further change needed.

As for the two players going on about spirit stones, quite a number made a point those garbage are uwanted. To be honest, salvages actually makes no difference. I'd be fine if chance of getting stone spirits was removed and chance of savage roll as well as chance of other rolls increase to compensate. ~ The way you reject is the way that I choose
