New mining/smithing in Runescape

Hi,

it’s been a while since i played Runescape, but I’m starting to slowly get back into it. While I was gone it seems Jagex decided to rewamp mining and smithing. Here’s what I found was new and exciting.

New ores



A few new ores were added, that you can mine after you reach mining lvl 90. With the new ores obviously we also got new pickaxes which speed up the mining process and overall the leveling process as well. A nifty thing I also found was that ores no longer depleted, which means no more having to skip on to the next world when you mine up all the ore in your area.

Smithing news


With smithing not much changed, you can still level it up the way you were used to, however upgrading items was added with the best items being able to be used in burial ceremonies by the dwarves, however this consumes the item. At lvl 99 you can also create Masterwork armour which is also a nice way to show off you mastery of the game.

That’s the new mining/smithing news. try them out next time you play RS.

Goldfarming in OSRS

Hi,

today I’m going to present you a few ways of making decent gold without high requirements. These are in no particular order so try to pick one that you like.

1. Cooking tunas
While you do require cooking level 30 to cook them its still a very good choice to make some money while leveling your cooking as tunas are one of the most used healing items in the game. The obvious added benefit is also that you will probably be able to make a stockpile of cooked tunas for when you need them yourself.

2. Collecting ashes
Ashes are used in herblore and are generally dropped off people making fires. So to use this method simply go to highly populated area and find someone training firemaking and pick up ashes after the. People who do this generally make long lines of fires so you should be able to get quite a lot of ashes in a short while. Obviously if you’re trying to play as economically as possible when you go train your own fire making simply pick up ashes after yourself for a tidy return on the logs investment.

3. Killing chaos druids
You simply need a low level combat skill(around 25) and a weapon to be able to kill a chaos druid. They drop a lot of different herbs and most of them are very profitable. In addition to farming money from the herbs this method also allows you to train your combat skills.

There are also a few way which are not quite as safe. For example collecting Zamorak wine and Nature runes in the wilderness, however I can’t recomend those as that will leave you exposed to getting killed be other players. Hope this was educational and see you next time.
