According to the latest game updates, we have known that there are some changes made to RS Mining and Smithing skills on Feb. 3. You can go ahead to learn further details below.
RS Mining changes more reliant on Staminna
After the changes to Mining and Smithing were made on Feb. 3rd, now RS Mining skill is more reliant on Staminna. Before the changes, you can deal 80% “damage” to the rock while you are mining it, but now this value is reduced to 20%. Stamina can still be restored through mining the rock again, or consuming a stone spirit under the effects of a Perfect Juju Mining Potion.
Moreover, the rocks that don’t reduce Stamina are not affected by this update, such as red sandstone and Arc crablets. Besides, the “HP” of Seren stones has increased to 2,000, which needs more time to mine without consuming Stamina.
You can track your Stamina by trying to enable the Stamina Bar in the "Mining" section of the Gameplay Settings menu.
RS Smithing improvements on Invention parts & components
During the changes to Mining and Smithing on Feb. 3, the way that smithable items disassemble into components for Invention is also improved. Now every bar used to smith an item is worth four Invention parts or components while breaking down it. For example, a 2-handed sword with no upgrades that costs four bars to create will give 16 parts or components.
In addition, now elder rune equipment has a higher chance of breaking down into components instead of parts. And the Breakdown perk’s activation chance has been adjusted down to a flat 0.8% per rank to compensate owing to the increasing of the availability of parts and components.
