Oh how great, MORE UNFINISHED BUSINESS.

If you are going to poll this, then please do a proper poll and add a 3rd option to get the entire rework that was promised with re-tiering included. Not just the "80%".

Then a second poll with the 2 most popular choices out of those 3, since my vote priority would be "Full Rework" > "No Rework" > "Rework without metal tier rebalance".

We're essentially voting blind with this poll. If you're going to poll it, could you tell us what it's up against? What amazing content would we be losing if a full mining smithing rework went ahead? Click here for clan stuff. -Or- here for new Solomons outfit ideas.

Hi.:P

I think most of the people here have expressed my thoughts rather well. I definitely feel like the level of effort required to shift the tiers has been exaggerated; I could (and once did) redo the boss drop tables and come up with an idea to replace certian more general sets of Slayer drops in an afternoon.

Something else that I don't think has been widely ignored is the fact that the more you put this off, the worse the problem gets! The longer you wait, the more monsters and bosses with drop tables that will also need to be redone. As an example, Menaphos was released, bringing 12 Slayer monsters + the Magister. That's 13 drop tables that now need to be looked at, that might not have been if you'd got on with doing the rework. We know you're developing 3 more Slayer monsters (and I fear a certain TAPP project group boss, boo hiss!) that will be released soon. Will that be another 4 drop tables to do?

The longer you wait, the more mess you have to clean up later, and the more you will make the excuse not to do it, I fear.

Support for 3rd option to get the full update in 1 go, most people last year said they want full updates and not half and half like elf city and invention. Most active players already have 200m invention long before any sign of batch 2.

Maybe even add a 4th option of moving staff from TH to work on it :P

Support.

Fun fact: we've had one quest this year, or two if counting the Menaphos miniquests as one quest. Because, compared to Do No Evil, that is sort of fair.

Honestly, I just want to see this fully worked on. As iconic as Runite is as the high tier ore, it's baffling that tier 90 ore gives tier 50 armor and that shit needs fixing.

That's what the "No" option means.

Excuse my language but, jesus fucking christ, what the have you been doing for the past whole year exactly?

Edit: Agree with others, I want to see what was promised.

Don't need more dead content like as of expanding mining guild, adding new t70 etc, the only useful feature would be the overload version for smithing. But you cant justify months of work for such a small useful addition
