Silvthril rod[edit source]

Hi, I noticed you just made a few edits saying that making silvthril rods doesn't use mithril bars anymore. I find that a bit strange, so I was just wondering if it might be possible that it still is required, but the bar was taken from your metal bank when you tried it? I would check myself, but can't right now.

Thanks, realised that this might be possible since it is created at a furnace. I had 2 mithril bars in my inventory untouched that was why I was confused.Dzpliu (talk) 11:40, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Sorry to be a bother, and thank you for helping to keep the wiki up to date! -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Me Talk III The Spark.png- 08:35, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Nevermind, apparently the edits have already been reverted -Hourglass (2011 Hallowe'en event) detail.png I Am Me Talk III The Spark.png- 08:56, 1 March 2021 (UTC)

Anachronia Agility rates[edit source]

Hey, Thanks for your input on the Agility training page. When you want to discuss a change to an article, the a talk page is the place to do it, either the article's or a user's if you can track down who made the change you want to discuss. In particular, there's already some information on the Talk:Agility_training#Anachronia_Agility_Course_Section_G page. If you're confident in your changes, then checking the talk page and making the change to the article is fine too, it just seemed like you wanted to discuss your change first. Another way to discuss changes would be in the wiki's discord (runescapewiki), though not everyone is on there. I also acknowledge that the talk page is gigantic and messy for the agility training article, and that sometimes talk pages don't get anything done. [[File:Anachronia Agility Course map.png|200px|left]] In particular about your testing of the rates for the novice section of the Anachronia course: I'm not sure if you were testing the norther (F on the map) or southern (B on the map) versions, but from my testing, rates on both are closer to 30k per hour than the 20k/hour you noted, and this is without any bonuses, and without surging. It makes me think that you might not have started or ended the lap at the correct obstacle. Each lap (which is one-way, doubling back to where you started is 2 laps) should take around 1 minute on F and B (though B is shorter and F is longer), and you should get a 400xp bonus when you complete a lap, in addition to 20xp per obstacle. Also worth noting is that each section starts and end with shortcut icon on the world/mini map, and there are no other shortcut icons other that those that start and end sections. (Maybe this information would be useful on the Agility training article?)

After reading your note, I went ahead and did 10 more laps of the southern (B) section, and found they took under a minute each (if you average clockwise together with counter clockwise), which matches the notes I made on the talk page. When I multiply that by the experience in the table found on Anachronia_Agility_Course#The_course of 520 per lap, I get the same number as is on the agility training article of over 30k per hour. I'm leaving your note as is for now, but I am asking you to move the note to the talk page, and try to figure out what the difference between what you did to get 20k exp/hour and what I did to get 30k exp/hour is so we can make the training guide more clear. The anachronia sections don't have the table of images of obstacles that the other courses have, and my wording is a bit sparse, so it's a lot easier to get confused. Maybe adding those would help too, though that's a lot more work than adding words. 11:38, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

RE: Archaeology training table rework[edit source]

In the new template the collectors are fetched using DPL. This means that the lists are automatically updated if the wiki is updated with new collections. However this also means that recreating the original layout is much harder. It is probably possible, but I don't personally have the technical know-how to actually change it to look identical to the old layout.
