Hello,

I've recently gotten into killing the gwd2 bosses, though after the smithing rework update, Vindicta has been substantially less valuable. On my most recent trip, I received stone spirits for every drop of ~10 kills, which was ridiculous. Stone spirits do not have value, and hardly sell on the ge.

Removing stone spirits from boss drops would return their value to pre smithing rework values.

Please fix this, I am losing money by killing this boss as it costs more to repair armor and weapons than anything I am getting from this.

I suppose this could be expanded to higher level bosses in general. I understand the specific stone spirits were changed out for gwd and gwd2, but these drops still have very low values.

Support. I'm killing Greg right now and about a quarter of my drops are stone spirits, which are now absolutely worthless. I shouldn't finish an hour bossing having lost money at GWD2.

I think I've read a Reddit(?) post somewhere from a Jmod saying that they will look into these drops again. They didn't dit it yet because they didn't know how it would impact DBXPW.

Cba to look for source.

Support :)

I think removing them entirely off the drop table would be best

It could either be replaced by drops that are already on their drop table, or something else added in their place which are worth more than spirits are currently

Boss may as well be Solak and you still get worthless spirit stone drops.

If none of the runescape bosses interest you how about you go play a ‘real game’ that actually interests you so you can leave us in peace?

Support, these stone spirits overall nerf pvm/slayer and it's questionable to me why these even got added over noted ores....like why would I or anyone else want 4 addy stone spirit drop from a high slayer monster...300gp vs normal 4k+ per kill.

JaGeX's logic....guys these used to drop 4 noted addy ores so lets add 4 addy stone spirits instead even tho addy is no longer a high leveled ore and way less demand, because miners will want these items for x 2 ores right?

^ that statement is basically true for all boss drops as well something that maybe dropped t85 ore runite got replaced by t50 runite, before update runite ore was a pain to mine, had to hop worlds constantly (mainly wrote this for jmods, no offence but you obviously never played the game/ know supply and demand)

Overall just remove the stone spirits even if you added 300+ noted ores of the higher ones would still be bad gp due to mining being highly afkable @AFKSCAPE

Ores don't need to replace stone spirits as drops. Yes there is no question the drops are terrible and stone spirits have no uses but I think it's best to add salvage drops to all pvm droptables and allow disassembling of stone spirits to make pvm profitable again.

Support, slayer and pvm has become increasingly less enjoyable with the stone spirit drops and hard to cover costs of gear repair and instances. I hope this gets reworked soon, been a long time player/member and I hear more people now complain and consider quitting over the stone spirits.
