The new cannon looks awful and all the smithing update did was speed up experience. You can now level your useless skill faster, to reach nothing. This is what it took Jagex well over a year to come up with? Smithing still only has purpose in dungeonering, this update changed nothing.

Support! Atleast give the cannon some cool properties like the ability to fire 2,5%-5% faster or similar.

My lame drops:
6 Effigys
1 D Med - 1 D Dagger
1 Verac's Helmet - 1 Guthan's Platebody

Say what you like about the cannon, but it's a darn sight more realistic. Despite the fact the cannonball storage is still a bit weird.

How on earth are you ever going to make smithing worthwhile again? You won't especially not if you just focus on combat.

I'm not an efficienado.

cannon looks cool, but it is damn near impossible to find small drops like herbs under a cannon, let alone seeds or charms

i don't expect anything useful from updates anymore
what gives you the idea that jagex makes good updates?
just be happy with what you have right now
jagex rarely produces good updates and anticipating them will kill you

This. I pay money to access some of the existing content; nothing else.

In any case, I agree with OP.

Probably because you've outgrown most of the content.

I don't understand how that applies to the OP's rant at all. Are you saying that he's outgrown wanting a better smithing update? How in the world does that work? It can't be that he's outgrown the existing smithing update, because for that to be the case the update would have to be useful and there'd have to be something in it to outgrow, which there isn't, so what the hell are you talking about?

Also, inb4 you turn this into an efficiency argument for the umpteenth time.

Either way, before this turns into an argument, this update sucks. We wanted new REWARDS, not crappy content with exp rewards that aren't much better, if better at all, than the current methods.

I'm also agreeing with blade that the new cannon look is a much bigger pain with seeds because the whole ground below the cannon is covered by the base now.

I agree the new cannon is terrible; makes me think a little too much of WoW-style graphics. For the record, I think the cartoony WoW graphics are just an eyesore and a blemish on the face of serious MMOs.

Who cares about the cannon's looks? I'm mildly happy about this update because if I wanted to train smithing I would now have a better way of doing so. Then again, I don't train smithing often. A pity - my early RS days were all about mining and smithing, how I kept mining to make bars to make armor to be able to make better armor... but okay, that's beside the point.

About smithing, yes, what the skill really needs is new content. However, it isn't easy to make good content. I, for one, don't want another super untradeable skill perk unlocked at 95 smithing. If we went that way, then average and somewhat above average players would no longer stand a chance of doing anything eventually. If such content is to be introduced it should begin from a medium level (70-75) and should not get overpowered even at the end (example: curses are not particularly useful until 92, then suddenly it gets insane).

The smithing xp isn't good nor cheap. I still didn't see any reward so it seems a bit pointless to me <_<

When the new cannon look makes it take up twice as much space as it did before, I care a lot about the looks, and have a reason to bloody hate it. This isn't the dragon scimitar where people complain about jagex changing the looks, with people both for and against the change; by changing the size of the cannon, you change the mechanics of how they are used.

Oh okay. I guess that cannon problem makes sense then, although TBH I always find herb drops a pain anyway, so I click the seed then the bones.

The smithing update was what I expected. i was looking forward to it. I am satisfied.

You expected it to be more expensive and slower exp than normal smithing? Okay.
