It's so you can't make huge profits of making large granite chunks into smallers ones, and selling for huge profit. The prices are 'fixed' to eachother so they all go up or down at the same time, just like (1), (2), (3) and (4) pot doses.

Summoning. They were raised so people wouldn't massively make tons of money, and then throwing more junk into the game.

Ok here's how it is:

 

 

 

At first, granite was only worth something when it was 500g.

 

 

 

Then Jagex gives us the ability to cut down chunks of granite, therefore a 5KG chunk will be worth 10 times 500g. So the price of a larger chunk has to go up, it's common sense.

 

 

 

Actually, granite as a whole will not go up but down because it's so much easier to get large quantities of it.

WHAT? We now have the ability to Chisel large blocks of Granite into 500g pieces :shock:? I tried that back in April or so after the Summoning update when I couldn't buy Granite 500g on the GE and had to mine my own.

 

 

 

Edit: Looks like I missed the part about it, and about the new way to make 4 dose potions. That's what I get for just skimming updates.

It didn't really go up.. well it did, but in a way it didn't.

 

 

 

Think if they added 6-dose potions, they'd have to make them double the cost of 3 dose potions because you could add two 3 dose potions for a 6 dose. They basically did something similiar here. 5kg granite is roughly 10x the cost of 500g, because you can make 10 lots of 500g granites from it.

 

I kind of lost my point while pointing out the obvious, but oh well.

 

 

 

If anything this will make it go down, since you won't need to drop the ones that aren't 500g

 

 

 

I didn't read any of the other posts before this, but still

You're right there. However, I think they'll be bought often enough to make them go down, so they wont last very long as junk.

The people who lose out are the miners like me who had 10.8k granite banked, waiting for the usual upwards price swing...

Thats wrong because the granite prices have been steadily going up the 2 weeks before this update so it seems to me to be Jagex raising the prices, so people didn't see the update and try to buy all the big chunks for a small amount of cash and then wait until after peak times and make a huge profit.

How does that disagree with the first quote at all? You explained why the price was artificially raised, while the first quote explains it in a different way then states that 500g granite will go down.

It's now pretty much impossible to sell any of the 3 sizes of granite. Still, if they do sell, I just made 3m in two hours, which isn't too bad.

Why don't you just read what I typed before replying. Just like the rest of us do.

Basically used for Summoning, most people tend to make Granite Lobsters all the way to Level 85, or atleast I did.

I personally see this is a great opportunity to gain a lot expensive junk fast for expensive trades, such as godswords, phats and so on.

On a thread about cutting up granite into chunks dated 29-Aug-2008 17:35:59

 

 

I return!

 

 

 

I can confirm that this is something the developers intend to implement into the game soon.

 

 

 

Thanks for your thoughts, it's always great to get constructive feedback.

Boo hoo hoo. Stop whinging people.
