The mining guild seems really powerful now, this update solidly cement it as permanently useful content. I'm worried the combination of all the benefits there will make it OP, but better to start big I guess.
Any chance we could get Amethyst darts as an in-between Rune and Dragon?

Tbh, many of the new features come with their own requirements beyond merely entering the guild. So perhaps that's not so OP as it might sound.
Ed would be able to make new darts, sure, though given how useful the blowpipe is in so many places already, I wouldn't personally be pushing for a dart update.

Will the fossil island wyverns (82 slayer) be task-only, or will we be able to kill them off-task aswell?
Sorry for off-topic question, but I heard a rumour it will be task-only so I am curious.

We'd not heard that rumour. Including Maz, who is writing them. So perhaps it was just one of those fake news things you get these days.

Is there a reason Void mage update hasn't hit yet? I'm pretty sure it would take god ash like 10 mins to code in if not less....

Maybe a smidge longer. But I'm afraid I've been a little occupied with other stuff in the last week, including quite a lot of time spent with potential new devs for the team. Maz & Kieren have had to spend a lot of time on recruitment stuff too - it means we've not spent much time devving this week, so you don't get as much as you'd want in today's update, but in the longer term getting that extra dev into the team will help us deliver more in future. So I hope you'll find it worth the wait.

No mid summer event this year?

With limited time available in the last week for developing stuff, we've gone with the guild expansion that Mod Ed had mostly created in his personal project time. Summer's going on for another few weeks yet, so we could still celebrate Midsummer even if it doesn't coincide with Earth's solstice.

Thanks, I'm fine waiting I was just wondering why it wouldn't hit :p just seems like it would be simple for coders like yourselfs. ;P

If all our time were spent coding, you'd get more coding done. Which is, sadly, not sustainable since sometimes we have to recruit more coders, or spend time planning future things, or interact with players... We figured players were pretty good at understanding why things don't always turn up the day after a poll closes, even if they're small.

Are there any plans to higher more staff for bot busting?

That'd be handled outside the OSRS team, even though Weath sits with us and is counted as one of our team for practical purposes. I don't have any info on other teams' headcount changes or recruitment activities.
