Woodcutting wasn't as big a deal as Mining in classic.

In real life MMO you don't get 99 smithing by making endless bronze daggers.

What also doesn't make sense is a quest unlocking the ability to make all pickaxes, when you probably already have bought the rune pickaxe already anyway. Also what is so special about pickaxes that they cannot be made without extra knowledge? :P

Lawsuits from flying pick heads when they used to break? I don't know :o.

Most likely Nurmof, who is underneath Falador, and sells Bronze-Rune.

 

But that is not every pickaxe though. He doesn't sell dragon.

That is because dragon and for this matter crystal things are considered special, and many can only be gotten in a different way than normal.

To ensure that the Global Warming quest was slightly less than an absolute waste of time? Except for the whole part about how it totally is~

Also, adamantite and runite are hyped up as being crazy strong metals, and yet are considerably worse than both the ancient, visibly moldy armor the barrows brothers wore and steel armor from the east.

Dragon pickaxe didn't exist in Classic.

What steel armour from the east? Tetsu?

 

That's made from 'plate' which is never specified as a specific metal-type and is totally separate from the stainless steel resource.

 

Barrows its kinda debatable about whether it looks mouldy or is just brown since we have never seen it in its original state and the fact Akrisae's set takes on the same appearance and he was only wighted very recently kinda suggests its not decayed so much as it is a side effect of the wight making magics/Sliske imbuing the gear with magical properties.

"Tetsu" does mean iron though, I believe. I would give them the benefit of the doubt if not for this.

 

It's very much a decaying-cloth-sort of brown though :v

The fact that the guy who sells halberds in Tyras Camp also sells dragon halberds totally breaks your argument.

Not in the slightest. How were dragon pickaxes and hatchets added to the game?

erm no, first notice the "many" I said in my sentence. Secondly all those halberts can only be gotten in a different way than other weapons, you need multiple quests for them.

Still makes sense for ironman though, as rune plate is a lot easier to get than a dragon plate (except from diango) :P

dragon plate is impossible to get on ironman :P unless you can get it from motherlode maw thingy. As for why its impossible, you can't enter blast furnace to buy the hammer required for smithing the plate.

And you can get it from MAW.

At the top of that, isn't Hero's Quest and Shield of Arrav required as well? I know that the Legends' Quest is required and that one requires these two.

 

When I played these quests, it was literally impossible to do these quests without another player.

 

I'm not sure if it's changed now.

lol, didn't think of that... hope they will fix that.

 

@Blaze, ironman can trade quest specific items for those two quests (and get bonds from players).

Japanese armour was generally constructed from many small iron (tetsu) and or leather (nerigawa) scales (kozane) and or plates (ita-mono), connected to each other by rivets and lace (odoshi) made from leather and or silk, and or chain armour (kusari). These armor plates were usually attached to a cloth or leather backing. Japanese armour was designed to be as lightweight as possible as the samurai had many tasks including riding a horse and archery in addition to swordsmanship. The armour was usually brightly lacquered to protect against the harsh Japanese climate. Chain armour (kusari) was also used to construct individual armour pieces and full suits of kusari were even used.[10]
 
Though 2 things created with the same component don't have to end with similar results, it definitely looks to be iron.

How come you don't need a hammer or anything like that when eating lobsters?

 

In real life, the lobster shells are too defensive to chew.

 

So if they can be eaten in one bite, and doesn't require anything, how come watermelons need to be sliced?

 

You can actually eat watermelons directly without using a knife in real life.
