I'd rather they'd have a different drop table all together. Like instead of getting gems, noted high tier ores would be useful to me. Since right now I'm just selling emeralds, and dragonstones. Keeping the diamonds to make more ports with, and alching everything else to make siphons with. I'm up to my eyeballs in geodes, and even with spam clicking them open, and a gem bag the potential net gain isn't worth the time. It's not like its 2007 where diamonds where 10k a piece, they're not as valuable and the over abundance of them being introduced into the game with each geode only devalues them further. Honestly I can't wait until a couple years down the line (if the games still around) where they'll be 100gp a piece lol.

Geodes are not designed or meant to be a main source of income. They are a bonus and supplement profit from actual mining.

However personally speaking, other than metas they should either be completely removed or the drop rate should be significantly lower. You should not be able to get so many gems by mining normal rocks...makes shillo gem rocks pointless and crashes the value of said gems which affects profits from lower level crafting.

As usual one thing is fixed at the expense of others.

Just buy them then? Don't tell me you're eating them like candy.

The drop rate isn't *that* high - without boosters it's just 5 %, of course using boosters you can squish out quite a few more. Problem is there isn't really a sink, but a few pieces which actually degrade to dust. Might be something that could be tackled with a crafting rework.

After mining enough ore for two sets of MW I have over 1300 igneous. I’ve had about 10-12 or so metas and just completely disregarded sedimentary. While I know they won’t all be precious gems there will still be a fair few entering the system.

instead of asking them to buff geode's why not ask jagex to buff the bonuses of other items and maybe giving it a new geode mechanic while there at it.

like the gem finding its 382.4k on ge(no clue if accurate of street vallue) it used to give ya sometimes a diamond,dragonstone or rarely and onyx on trying to mine the ore and if ya mannaged to mine it but now it only gives ya an extra 2% goede bonus no clue if its a flat boost or just adding 2% to it

(gem finding)
new mechanic on rework(well old one but works with current)
give it the ability it had before rework when ya activate it every swing with a pickaxe could yield ya a goede+the same bonuses ya already have to upgrade it to methamorphic or lower.doing it this way would make the scrimshaw retain its use other then keeping it nerfdt.

(gem finding)
if the above is a no why not give the gem finding a other use when ya mine low lvl rocks (under 60) it turns all the common geode's to igneous with the same % to get a methamorphic one.


(dragonstone juwelry)
dragonstone juwelry before nerf they had a bonus of giving ya +1 gem on mining when ya got it. why not give that bonus to the new mechanic to give ya 1 extra geode, not same one if 1 upgrades to methamorphic the other one hase the same % to upgrade or keeping it normal.

this could be a solution to the complaints about. it alot of players did not want jagex to do a short rework of just lowering rune and adding in new ore so, this would not have been added most likely if the majority did not want a full rework. keep that in mind people.

No, but I still make, use, and sell:
Ring of Metamorphosis
Featherfingered Necklace
Necklace of Gluttony
Headhunter's Thrill
Botanist's Amulet
Amulet of Bountiful Harvest

And I'd like to continue making them without having to either mine lv 1-50 ores (because I still have over 10k of each) or go to gem rocks again.

What if the gem bag was buffed to allow storage of low level gems? and I completely agree with the suggestion to buff the number of spirit shards given, like why not do a random number between 10 and 500 for ignatious 1 and 200 for sedimentary and some crazy number like idk 1000 and 100000 for metamophic Ghad: struggling against the enemies of me boiz
