The Runecrafting update used a similiar implementation to the suggestion of the orginal poster; same difficulty in leveling up, but an increase in general profit. The effects of that update could be very relevant to this thread, so I suggest that both sides look into the issue.

Multiple ores/rock, bars/ores and items/bars, pls!

...Seriously, that's not a bad idea.

I swear I posted here before... I looked through the thread however and didn't find any post by Dr. Cox so I think I'll just post again.

I love mining the way it is. I don't mind having to powermine for levels. I just pop in my earphones, turn on the cricket and I mine away. So far I'm having a heap of fun.

I don't think that mining should be changed as a skill. It is meant to be hard to level without focus and it accomplishes that. Not every skill should be another Woocutting or Fishing if you gather things -.-

I do agree that addy/mith rocks are extremely downplayed though. Put them in better areas where banking is a bit easier (mith is located in the guild, but personally it could be better/ore places to mine/bank). And don't get me started on addy... that, at the moment, is definitely not worth mining. Most people (including myself) skip/are going to skip addy/mith for cash and head straight to runs, which is very sad imo. But there is no incentive or reason to actually go out there for an hour and mine these ores, unless you need some cash desperately or you are superheating.

And yes, most Adamantine bars come through Avanies. The price of those bars, which I believed were fairly constant, went on a decline soon after the method had become widely known. The others I'm not sure on.


Yup. Wondered if it ever crossed any of Jagex's staffs' minds that the same principle could be applied to mining.


That's assuming, of course, that you consider the runecrafting update a success. And a casual look at the forums shows that quite a few people would disagree.


Jagex doesn't need to please everyone, just the majority.

Furthermore, most of them are just 91 runecrafting nature runecrafters whining about the loss of their profit.

By that logic, Jagex should only update the middle levels that the majority of players possess. This is also logic that is completely killing the innovation and development of the gaming industry. The PvP update was an exception (which I know you are thinking of), but that was mainly because it threw the economy into wild inflation, which in turned harmed players with no relation to PvP.

The main point that the high-level runecrafter supporters were addressing (and yes, crying about as well. Some people are so melodramatic) is that the update effectively ignored any benefits for high level runecrafters; in other words, no increase in runes, and therefore profit, along with the rest of the skill. That is a perfectly valid point that you shouldn't ignore.

They're whining about nothing. Just ignore them for a while and they'll shut up.

If Jagex introduced this "scale" system from the start, would they be complaining in the first place? They've already earned enough money from their 91 RC. It's just that they're greedy for more. And regardless of the lowering of the prices of nature runes, isn't 91 RC still profitable? It's not like it suddenly became completely useless. They can still earn MORE money than those with less than 91 RC, albeit (not so) significantly less than before.

Agreed. :P

There are several good places with mixed mith/addy. If you make it easier to get ores, prices will just drop anyway so there's no point.
