The dragon mattock requires level 60 Arch to use, but has equal to the necrite (t70) mattocks stats, on top of being augmentable
The sooner your get it the better, and there's a xp slump for active training past level 50 Arch, so using your Nerds to gain xp while you BGH for early mattock is pretty efficient, since the BGH grind will always take the same amount of time, but you won't be in the xp slump forever.
This has been the most depressing lack of puns I've ever seen in a video game. Considering the April Fools puns, I am disappointed Jagex.
Why the hell is the requirement to use this level 80 Archaeology, when you can’t make it until 89? What was the thought process behind this???
Edit: Ok so with the Kyzaj Cache giving the higher level keys too, that brings it down to 83, still kinda of redundant to have it as a level 80 mattock
Have they confirmed/could a JMod confirm if the drop rates for D Mattock are different for each tier of dino? I've already gotten one Mattock and I know they can all drop mattocks but I'd like to know if I should do the highest tier ones instead rather than the ones with the most profitable meats. Just a simple yes/no answer would suffice, no need for specifics.
The imcando mattock is an rng nightmare and my main problem with it is that I feel trapped in the Warforge site until I finally get lucky enough to get all four of the imcando pieces. I've unlocked multiple other digs that I haven't even visited yet because I want to finally move past my crystal mattock. I don't know how rare the imcando pieces are supposed to be, but there are some people over level 85 still missing pieces. All I request is some form of bad luck mitigation so there is a hard cap on how long it can take to get all the pieces. Thanks!
I have been excavating bandos place lvl 76-85 without even one fragment. Is this normal anymore?
I’ve completed 3 dinosaur sets in Big Game Hunter today. So totaling about 21 kills. I got a double mattock drop off the only double today. That was on asciatops. Then I did a malletops set and got 2 single dragon mattocks drops in a row. And then completed an oculi appoterasaur set and got another dragon mattock drop. Am I just unbelievably lucky today? Or is the drop rate just not that high? Cause 750 million gp for like 60 minutes of BGH is insane (I was doing other stuff as well I’m not insanely slow at bgh lol). At this point my clan is tired of me saying in chat that I got another one. What’s happening lol
I know we don’t know who will drop the dragon mattock. But what Boss/creature do you think will drop it?
I've reached level 50, but every single Mattock has been working the exact same. The bar doesn't seem to be progressing faster on my Rune Mattock than on my Bronze Mattock. Focus has always been incrementing in steps of 2.
What am I missing here or is there some sort of bug going on?
EDIT: confirmed by voltsigo and the Runescape Twitch Stream: Focus on Mattocks gives you a higher chance of getting materials. They did not mention any influence on the Sprite Focus. Mystery solved and it seems like they aren't bugged after all. Perhaps they could have given the stat a different name though.
Wiki just says through archaeology but nothing specific.
Personally, I'm using Honed and Tinker, but I can't really think of anything else to use.
Anyone have any suggestions?
I was wondering this, because I will have to back track to complete the logs later, and curious how much faster it is going to be
Imcando Mattock: 80 archaeology required
However, in order to obtain the Saragorgak key, you need to be 89 (87) Archaeology. How are you able to wield an imcando mattock at 80 archaeology then? :S
Any news on what drops the dragon mattock?
I understand crystal is the t70 augmentable mattock, while imcando is t80.
Why are the best mattocks derived from Seren and Guthix lore when neither faction was present in the God Wars where Arch revolves around?
Any chance we could turn our augmented dragon mattocks into crystal mattocks? I thought they changed this for the other hatchet and pickaxe.
title says all, trying to siphon an augmented crystal mattock with a crystal tool siphon but wont allow it?
says " you can only do this with a crystal tool siphon"
sorry if this has been posted previously
Has anyone figured out what drops it yet? I've been unable to find this information. The more people are aware of it's source, the more that will be available to train with. So if you know, please share.
Happy digging, folks.
Attention players and jmods, smithing mattocks currently gives insane amounts of xp. I went afk while making a set of mattocks and returned having gone from 99 smithing to 102. Do not mass produce mattocks right now
I'm probably having a moment but I'm using the Augmentor on the Dragon Mattock and all I get is "You can't work out how to augment that item at the moment". Normally the item needs to be repaired but that doesn't apply to Dragon so what am I missing?.
Hi all, I have 4 imcando parts.
I'm reading around it seems like I need 89(!?) archaeology to make it, or I can use a "perfect tea boost"(the wiki doesn't have an article on a perfect tea item) to get it at 81? Does anyone have any concrete information on how to actually make this thing?
I want to buy it, but i don't know if i'll have to buy it again when I upgrade my mattock to the next tier?
Just curious as to what the rarity of these is, I've been at Warforge from 76 and I'm now 82, haven't had a single piece yet.
Is there something I'm supposed to do that I've missed, or am I just getting unlucky?
Just curious, thank you!
Has anyone heard any recent pc on guild master tony mattock?
I went from 91 to 99 hunter since archaeology came put doing bgh only, without getting a dragon mattock. That’s 385kc dry.
Everyone around me seems to have gotten it within 100kc.
During my 500 total kills I got 4 bgh eggs and no reinforced dino pelt.
I quit runescape 3 times in the past two days.
I was told that if I complain here I shall get reddit luck, and sorry about the rant.
It seems you have to unaugment your Dragon mattock to upgrade to Crystal. Is there any way we could upgrade with the augmentation still on?
Seeing as you can't make a crystal mattock with an augmented dragon mattock, I was wondering if the same is true for the imcando variant.
How would I find out what drops a dragon mattock?
Any help appreciated
When using an augmentor on the Imcando mattock it gives me the message "You can't work out how to augment that item at the moment." I'm not super familiar with invention, any ideas what I've missed?
Also for when I manage to get it augmented, I've chose to use honed but unsure on which other perk to use alongside it. Can anyone suggest what's supposed to be the next best overall?
Are there any plans for bad luck mitigation to be added for obtaining the pieces? I went 76-85 without obtaining a single piece, and I'm nearing 87 now and still do not have the last piece. I'm sure there are people who have had worse luck than I have.
Is the archaeology reward from chronotes applied “per” mattock? I.e if I purchase the upgrade 8k chronotes and apply it to my mithril mattock, would I have to buy it again when I upgrade to adamant?
Make it so we don't have to unaugment our dragon mattocks to turn them into crystal, crystal back to dragon etc.
I got all the keys at lvl 81 and im now level 87 with only 2 pieces and I've been training at the Bandos area for all those levels because i just want the Imcando Mattock before i leave.
Am i suppose to be farming caches or just normal excavations? Like i want to punch my screen already tbh
Can someone please explain what those properties do?
