I am keeping my ores to make them too. I am going to use lrc to level my smithing and mining, and I'll reach 99 mining long before I get close with smithing, so the extra mining xp is of no use to me


I'll probably have to leave LRC and do some semi-old school mining for the diamonds. Slayer for blue prints of course. I don't have many quest left and SOF doesn't act too kind to me.

Has anyone else realized that the weapons (at least the lvl 40 and lvl 60 starfury weapons) are inferior to their counterparts? Ivl 60 starfury sword for example has 1296 attack and 1041 accuracy, but the D2H, which has the same attack requirement ans is also a 2h sword, has 1341 attack and 1147 accuracy. Is this just a ploy to make people who don't use places like the wiki spend tons of money? FOr me it just is an excuse to mine for 2 weeks for extra mining and smithing xp

I got a diamond while mining a rune ore in F2P. Examine says something to the effect of "login in P2P to use this".

Does anyone know if the ores come like gems (chance every swing) or if there is a chance every time you get an ore? And do better ores give higher chances (EDIT: just got 193 in one hour powermining ess)?

I am pretty sure it's like gems, since I have never seen I get a proper ore and starlight ore at the same time.

Yeah I'm going to probably slay all day on the weekend to get the blueprints. I might make all three, but I'm digging the bows look most.

All I can think about with regards to their choice of name for the weapons.

From the empty days of hope, deny the darkness
Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun

Did Jagex just temporarily make mining a buyable skill?

Some probabily will, but no doubt that prospect in itself also vastly increased GP from spins during the span of this promotion...

Honestly I don't like how any of the weapons look. Well, at least not enough to put any effort into obtaining them.

My question is, why does JaGEx continue to release cosmetic outfits on the SoF, rather than cosmetic overrides? Obviously they'll make a bit more money if someone really wants to keepsake an item, but I figure that most people who care about cosmetics have already used their keepsake slots. Having items that are otherwise cosmetic - and that does pretty much include star weapons - come straight off the Squeal as overrides would be quite a bit more incentivizing to spin for. That especially includes items that can't be keepsaked anyway, like these weapons.
