Mining / Smithing odds[edit source]

Do you have a greater chance at making two bars / mining two ore if it is a lower type such as smithing bronze bars or minning iron ore?


This is something I've been curious about as well. For me it seems to work about 10% of the time when mining ores and smithing bars, even less when it comes to iron. pyrolord 01:36, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

which ores?[edit source]

Does it work for anything? Like even pure essence?--Kodeman76 21:58, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

Cooks' Guild ground floor range bonus[edit source]

Is there a bonus to cook lvl there??? Discuss here! Air rune.png Tollerach hates SoF Fire rune.png 00:23, February 15, 2010 (UTC)


I don't think so, just the Lumbridge range. pyrolord 19:01, February 18, 2010 (UTC)

Access to Bank-staff-only rooms[edit source]

I've been trying to get in them. I'm only able to tell jokes. I've removed the small portion (in the aarticle) about this, until someone explains how it's done. Amaterasu123 14:22, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

Concentrated minerals?[edit source]

Does the armor affect bonus ores for concentrated minerals? They *technaically* (excuse my spelling) are ligher level than addy, but the actual ores you get are lower level. Farming cape (t).png Ededdeddy97 Quest point cape.png 19:00, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

two bars smelting with C-Balls too[edit source]

The article says: "Chance of smelting two bars at once when smelting ores up to and including adamantite in the Edgeville furnace." Does that also work when making C-Balls - to me it's not clear, by the article, but it doesn't seem to happen when I do it myself? . . . Yours, This user admires the Void Knights.

Stop double ores effect?[edit source]

How can I stop getting the double ores effect? When wearing the golden mining suit and the Varrock armour in bank I do get the double ores, even when I destroyed it I keep getting them. Is there a way to stop this?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 81.245.112.23 (talk).

Not to my knowledge. You could try destroying your golden mining suit body/top; bnut once you've earnt your Varrock armour 3, that ajnd the golden mining suit body (if you have the latter as well) are exchangable for mining... 134.58.179.35 06:44, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Tried destroying the golden mining suit top, (this suggestion could be suitable since the varrock armour gets linked with the golden mining suit after getting both...), so I droped it and picked it back up (should have done the trick) but it didn't change anything unfortunatly.   81.245.112.23 15:08, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
No no, "destroy" implies you no longer /have/ the golden mining suit top? Aka, drop it and do NOT pick it back up. Otherwise it will undoubtedly remain linked with the Varrock armour and cause the effect to appear. 83.101.44.209 16:10, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Well got myself a new top now... Still the same =/   81.245.112.23 21:56, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
This is one of the passive features that task reward items have. It cannot be turned off, though I find it hard to see why you don't want 2 ores for the price of 1 What I've done Ciphrius Kane Talk 22:19, March 25, 2013 (UTC)
Yes it seems so... Actually, since the effect does not stack with the sacred clay pickaxe's bonus, it makes me lose xp/ore. In contrast, penance horn's bonus seems also to stack on the second ore. Could I get confirmation on this?   81.245.112.23 00:59, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
"You got yourself a new top", I am quite certain that if you at any one point in time have the golden mining suit top in your possession (be it equipped, in your bank or in your intenvory), and you are elegible for the Varrock armour 3, you will get the double ores at times. The only possibility I see for this not to happen would be to drop/destroy your golden mining suit top, and not get it again by any means. 134.58.179.35 08:02, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
 :::That would mean losing 1% xp (from the top), and on all my ores this time. But I also think it's the only way to stop the effect, if there is one...   81.245.112.23 11:16, March 26, 2013 (UTC)
PS : The penance horn's bonus does stack on the extra ore from the varrock armour. And so does the bonus from the golden mining suit which stacks on each different bonus.
For instance :
While wearing
- sacred clay pickaxe (100% bonus)
- penance horn (100% bonus)
- full golden mining suit (5% bonus)
Mining a coal ore when getting the extra ore from the varrock armour will give you 262,5 xp :
(50 xp from normal xp +5% from the suit) = 52,5 xp
+ (50 xp from pickaxe's bonus +5% from the suit) = 52,5 xp
+ (50 xp from penance horn's bonus +5% from the suit) = 52,5 xp
+ (50 xp from second ore +5% from the suit) = 52,5 xp
+ (50 xp from penance horn's bonus on second ore +5% from the suit) = 52,5 xp
=> 262,5 xp.               81.245.121.164 02:40, March 29, 2013 (UTC)

Bonus XP without golden mining chest piece[edit source]

I have Varrock armour 3, and it gives a 1% XP boost mining most ores. I don't have any golden mining suit pieces. I was wondering if this was a bug, or a hidden update. Feenix Libra (talk) 17:09, January 7, 2014 (UTC)
