Would also like to see a Dragon Dragon.

 

I honestly don't see how that would make any sense since a dragon bar doesn't exist.

Nor do I think it should exist since making dragon items smithable will eliminate what made them special. And that's the fact that you can only get them by special circumstances.

 

Black items are also unsmithable, though I wouldn't call them special since they are between steel and mithril when it comes to power and defense.

Most of the early dragon items are simply bought from shops, and the newer ones are almost exclusively monster drops. They were never really special, it's just that a lot of them were the best for a while, and so gained a reputation they didn't deserve.

 

The biggest difference between black items and dragon items is that dragon gear was actually good at one point.

By that logic all items that are bought from shops or are monster drops are not special items.

You do realize that most items, including the best ones, are either monster drops or bought in shops, right?

Which makes dragon items, being just like everything else, not special.

 

All dragon items had special attacks, and most of them were the best or close to it at some point. They're special in the way that they worked, similar to the Ivandis flail's permanent buff based on your vampyre kills, or Balmung/Keris' damage bonus against specific creatures. There's nothing special about killing a monster, and instead of getting 627 coins, or 2 lobsters, you get a dragon shield half.

We don't know anything about 'dragon' items aside from them being red metal.

 

For all we know, it could be some kind of ancient metal the Dragonkin worked with, and they could have infused the metal with a dragon like the others. Heck, it might not even be called 'dragon' at all

That still doesn't mean dragon should be smithable though.

 

That would make money making far too easy.

 

And before anybody points out that dragon platebody can be smithed keep in mind that I'm talking about in general not just one item.

That and the fact that we're out of room in the smithing table to put Dragon items. Although as they float closer to alch price, I wonder how much of a difference it would really make if the respective monsters dropped some sort of material that could be smithed into certain dragon items rather than the items itself...

I can easily make 1,000 steel platebodies within an hour. Heck, I think I can even make them within 30 minutes.

 

Just imagine how ridiculously easily it would be to make money if you could make dragon daggers that quick.

 

18,000 Coins might not be a lot, but it is.

 

But also think of the higher level items to make with dragon bars.

 

It's not even funny how easy it would be to make money off the dragon bars.

if it took you 10 minutes to get a bar, 2 bars for a dagger, that 18k is pointless

If dragon bars were dropped at the same rarity as say, chewed bones from mithrils, there wouldn't be an issue

Well supply and demand would dictate that they level out at an appropriate price. Otherwise, as you say, people will bid them up and smith like crazy until it adjusts accordingly. It was just an idea though, maybe make it require a super-hot (expensive) furnace or something...there is room for creativity, isn't there? ;)

How much are you willing to pay for something you can fabricate over 1,000 of in an hour?

we could also make lesser, plain versions of dragon under a different name, but i doubt it'd happen though

 

I think that was basically part of Mod Jack's idea that he outlined for a possible smithing rework.

I wonder what the name would be. Sort of but not quite corrupt dragon? :P

I can't find Mod Jack's original post (probably long gone) but I did find this one that matches up to what I remember from Mod Jack's post.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

I for one am super excited about the new Quest!

I really love the idea of walking about this alternative Varrock and having to start over with building up money for these sub quests.

It sounds like a ton of fun and will take me back to the good old days of yesteryear.

On a slight hiatus due to some college projects needing attention, but here is the design doc for the POH aquarium they discussed earlier.

 

http://cdn.runescape.com/assets/docs/external/aquarium/Aquarium_Design_Document.pdf

 

Really interested in their move with higher end food using great white sharks and combining things.

 

Also here is their Q&A style change list:

If i find time i may transcribe both of these and make a tl;dr.

Tassels shouldn't exist. Their only job is to clip through everything in existence.

I do agree with that...I guess I'm just old and don't want to see shit like this change L
