RuneScape players are finally getting something today that they’ve been wanting for half of forever: a mining and smithing update, or at least the beta for it. Pretty much every content–related article we’ve posted on RuneScape’s plans since 2015 has touched on the desire to make this oft-requested update happen. And now it’s finally here, albet it in beta format.
Don’t look at me – RuneScape players have always been unfathomable.
In Mining and Smithing 2.0, expect “the ore bag, upgrading equipment, decorating equipment, heating with the forge, non-competitive rocks, new tiers of metal and much more!” Jagex promises. Since it’s a beta, “You’ll find yourself locked into one small area with all the Mining and Smithing content you’ll need. You won’t have access to anything else, including the Artisans’ Workshop, cannonballs, mining outfits, auras, familiars and the toolbelt as these haven’t yet been updated.”
And by the way, you don’t need to sub to access it. There’s more to the update, of course, including the new Zodiac Festival.
Today we bring you the oh-so-anticipated Mining and Smithing Rework Beta! Give it a try and help us with your feedback. ⛏
Also don't miss the Zodiac Festival, with loads of rewards, and a big batch of patch goodness! ?
