    First of all, we will no longer be able to smelt on Fire Beetles' ghosts.

    Second, Gargoyle Pickaxes will now bring up Dull Copper from Iron spots. I have not yet tested on TC as to whether the GPA will pring up DC elementals (will try to do so this morning)

    I would not say Big changes. Seems to me they are fixing a bug and fixing something that should have always worked.

    Over three years to fix one little fire beatle is big!!!!

    As for the DC ellie, I bet it is still not fixed. Yeah you might be able to dig up a DC ellie now but it most likely will not have the slayers groups assigned to it, Earth Ellie and Elemental. I also bet it wont give the 25 ore like all the other ellies.
     
  4. Wow that's cool. I was just mentioning that I wanted this change. Now I can take a break from killing dull copper elementals and go back to mining (with a gargoyles pickaxe).

    Made a miner on TC1 and went thru 7 GP's without one DC ellie spawning.
    Had 2 Vals, 1 goldie, 1 veri, 1 copper and a shadow but not a single DC.

    I wish they'd give us a NPC way to res pets though... my miners and lumberjacks don't have high vet skills and it's a pain to go find someone online in the middle of the night sometimes.

    What if they made it a "Pet Ressurection Scroll" like a Repair Deed... so you still have to get from players... but you can have some sitting around and you use when you need them?

    I like that solution.
     
  8. How do you get gargoyles pickaxes on TC?

    arm your miner with a weapon and go kill some gargoyles of course!!!!!!
    :scholar:

    Any type of gargoyles may drop a gargoyle pick as loot.

    You can also set your character to 70 mining, and do every BOD you get until you get a GPA (or a large BOD). After all, you got 5k over every color ingot in the bank, for the asking...

    I did both for my test.
     
  11. Thanks for the answers. I went and tried and don't think I have enough time to be helpful on testshard.
