The Mining/Smithing rework does not include us making Dragon(kin) equipment. It will just have us making our own equipment out of the same material that the Dragonkin used (Orikalkum). Since we are obviously not Dragonkin, and smithing t60 gear isn't going to require While Guthix Sleeps for access to the Dragon Forge, the gear we make will turn out differently to the stuff the Dragonkin made.

Jagex made it clear that they want the actual Dragon items to remain drop/shop only.

Dragon equipment is Orikalkum equipment made by the Dragonkin, in the same way that Black equipment is Steel equipment made by the Black Knights.

They're made from the same metal, but different forging techniques create gear of different strength.

While Guthix Sleeps establishes that the dwarves aren't able to work with Dragon stuff to a large degree, not even with the Blast fusion hammer, and post-quest dialogue with Linza establishes that she's only able to "smith" dragon in the same way we are with the Dragon platebody (by reforging pieces of already created Dragon metal at the Dragonkin Forge).

The Dwarves supposedly making Dragon stuff post-Birthright of the Dwarves is a lorefail, and Zeke is the only source on the Monkeys actually making Dragon scimitars themselves.



But as we know, Dragon is not actually a unique metal, it's just what we call the stuff the Dragonkin made out of Orikalkum. Stuff we make out of Orikalkum will not be identical by virtue of us not being Dragonkin.

This thread in a nutshell



Wait until you actually know anything about the mining/smithing rework before whining about lorefails based on outright incorrect information. The rework isn't until next year and isn't even in active development.

We're getting some dev blogs this month, so maybe wait until those are out.
