Jagex has sent word that the much-anticipated mining and smithing rework has been deployed into RuneScape. Mining & Smithing are two of the game's original skills. The updated systems will provide players with "new rewards and new gameplay mechanics".

Four new tiers of armour and weapons have been introduced, Smithing now becomes the most valuable non-combat skill in the game, as well as the ability to craft the masterwork and trimmed masterwork armour – the best melee armours in RuneScape.

An overhaul of both skills was one of the most wanted updates highlighted by the game’s community in recent player surveys. The development team have worked closely with the community, holding two beta tests during 2018 and using player feedback to further refine the experience.
