On the Mining/Smithing Q&A, the Mod Jack mentioned they were changing the names of the new ores to something more in line with Runescape Lore.

The thing is, I disagree with doing this 100% of the renaming.

Granted, the names were never set in stone.

But for the T90 ore, the new name is going to be something like "Elder Runite".
tbh, I prefer the Aetherium (sp?) from the original design documents.

If anyone else has a thought on the names, feel free to go on about it.

T70 was Necronium
T80 was Invictum
T90 was Aetherium

renaming stands at
T70 Necrite
T80 Bane
T90 Elder Rune/Runite

Why can't they just use names from the real world, for instance titanium or tungsten? This is what people aren't getting. Some ******* "coder" releases OSBuddy or some other "helper client", people get hyped because they're stupid like sheep, and then down the road once the "helper client" has a ton of downloads he releases an "update" to hijack everyone.

Because we already move into magical metals with mithril. Mithril is usually depicted as much stronger and lighter than steel. (See: Fellowship of the Ring, for example.) Adamantite is usually depicted as vastly stronger and tougher than any real-world metal could possibly be. (See: Wolverine.) In Runescape, Runite is even stronger and tougher than Adamantite.

Tungsten and Titanium don't even approach this level of strength and toughness, so they wouldn't really work as T70+ metals. Runescape is a magical world filled with magical materials, so it makes sense that these materials can be mined and smithed.

I was using those two metals as an example, but whichever.

Here's a thought: Use the tier 6+ metals found in Daemonheim.

...unless that would somehow "weaken" the Dungeoneering skill or something...

We could do that. Why would that be better?

Well, because you've already established the precedent. The metals exist within the RuneScape universe, just they haven't been "exported" out of Daemonheim yet...

With the introduction of the M&S rework, voila! Lorewise, the Fremmeniks could have decided to abolish the no-smuggling-items-in-or-out-of-Daemonheim law (or are trialing such a law by experimenting with the ores/bars).

I dunno, beats trying to invent new names for stuff when you already have it in game.

I'm also a little sad that it's not being called Aetherium.
But why call the lv80 "bane"? We already have a Bane Ore unless they're somehow related.

Assuming you didn't change the look of the T80 gears you've already shown us in artwork, I think Invictum still works. Or maybe Regium?

*shrug*

I just can't wait to make my own T90 metal gear.

EDIT: Not opposed to Necrite. In terms of other metal naming schemes, it works. Runite ore to rune, adamantite ore to adamant.
