Introduction


Harmed Ore
is the Friends Chat based community that scouts and calls the best worlds for
Light
and
Dark
Animica ores. When the Trahaearn Voice of Seren is active,
Light
and
Dark
Animica ores have a chance to "harmonize" and replace any rune, addy, mith, or coal rocks. We relay worlds with the most efficient layouts for rockertunities. Join us for the most convenient and best source of T90 ores!

Our Friends Chats:

Harmed Ore
Harmed Ore1 (as needed)

Discord


The Discord server is provided as a platform and resource for the
Harmed Ore
community. Channels are available to help scout and get calls during Trah, as well as chat outside of Trah hours. Our goal is to help all miners, no matter the VOS. We hope you enjoy mining with us!

Friends Chat Info


If the FC is full or you're removed, please try joining again or check Discord for relays. If an FC is full and a rank tries to join, someone is randomly removed - they're able to rejoin as long as there is space. Non-participants not at Trah including those in lobby, instance/citadel worlds, and foreign servers are warned and kicked at 15 minute intervals if the FC has 80+ people. A kick comes with a 1 hour temporary ban. Accounts that are in F2P, OSRS worlds, or don't have access to Prifddinas may be removed at any time.

If there are no ranks present, please work together to scout worlds and communicate!

FC Rules


Breaking any of the following rules may result in a kick or ban.

• All Jagex official rules apply.
• Keep the chat clean. No trolling, harassing, or instigating others. No NSFW content. No politics, religion, or other controversial topics. Any severely inappropriate or offensive language will lead to removal. Alt(s) rejoining to continue will be removed as well.
• Any arguments should be taken outside of the FC. If you disrespect ranks trying to restore order and are rude to others, you may be removed.
• English only. No clan recruiting or advertisements. No spam at all times.
• During Trah, keep the FC to calls only until worlds have been found.
• When scouting, please say the amount of each ore type and the tile distance of movement between them. Don’t make fake calls. If you have questions about scouting, please ask a rank in FC.
• Try to educate others about ores during Trah! Tell them to join FC or Discord for worlds.


Strike and Ban System


If any rules are broken, you may be warned and removed from the FC. Each kick results in a strike. Screen shots of your removal with all relevant context will be kept. Kicks to make space in FC during Trah do not count as strikes.

1st Strike: warning + kick. You will be notified by a rank in FC on why you were removed and advised what to do better or what not to do at all. You can message a rank afterward for more information.

2nd Strike: warning + kick. Again, your removal will be explained by a rank. You will also be warned that if you are kicked a third time, you will be temporarily banned from the FC.

3rd Strike: warning + kick + temporary ban. After being removed for breaking the rules a third time, you will be temporarily banned for 2 weeks.

How Voice of Seren Works


The Voice of Seren is a passive buff based on each clan district in Prifddinas. On the hour, two new voices are randomly chosen from four possible voices. Out of all eight VOS, the voices of the previous hour and the voices of the current hour cannot be the new voices.

Therefore, there is always at least a two hour cool down period between the end and start of the same voice.

How Trahaearn Hour Works


Trah VOS Effects:

• At the start of the hour, every rock in the Trahaearn sector (excluding gem rocks) has a 1/15 chance to become a
Light
or
Dark
Animica rock.
• +20% chance to reward
double ore
when mining
• +20% XP smelting
corrupted ore

• +20% more base
Farming
exp from tree patch and chance to skip growth stages

T90 Ores:
Light Animica
,
Dark Animica

T90 Bar:
Elder Rune Bar
:
Light Animica
+
Dark Animica
+
Rune Bar
(Runite ore + Luminite ore)


Light
&
Dark
animica ores will harmonise at the beginning of the hour and will stay harmed until the end. These ores require 90 mining, which can be boosted.

At the beginning of the hour, the FC should be calls only. Once worlds are found, the FC is open for all discussion. Though open for chat, calls are still priority. Off-Trah, the chat is free for all.

Calls are taken in this format in FC:
<world> <ore count> <ore type> <distance walked>

Trah should be the best source of these ores due to the 20% chance of double ore, increased ore from rockertunities, and convenience to bank.

Rockertunities


Rockertunities
(RCTs) appear as golden sparkles over nearby, same type rocks. They may spawn on any same type rock within a 6 tile radius. There is a sound effect as they spawn as well. When you click an RCT, significant additional damage is done to the ore HP bar and may even do a critical hit. No progress is lost by changing to a same type rock. RCTs are not visible to other players. Hitting RCTs increases exp and ore per hour.

This pair of ores will have predictable and controlled RCTs since any additional rocks are more than 6 tiles away.


Other times, RCTs are disrupted because additional rocks are within range.


The two factors that determine which layouts are best are the amount of ores and the distance between them. The FC will always relay the most efficient worlds with the shortest walking distance as <world> <walking distance>.


Lossless Worlds


Lossless layouts are worlds with two of the same type rock within 0-2 tiles. And only two rocks! Additional rocks make RCT spawns unpredictable. 0 step pairs require no movement. Walking 1 tile or running 2 game tiles are equivalent and take one game tick. These pairs are the most efficient because the time it takes to move is less than each mining action (four ticks).

Zero step
Coal corner
and
Mith + Coal
spots, relayed as <world> (0)


Lossless one step, relayed as <world> (1)


Lossless two steps, relayed as <world> (2)


Other Worlds


Sometimes there are no lossless layouts during the hour. Don’t worry, there are a variety of other layouts! We relay all pairs of rocks as <world> <walking distance>.

How to Become a Rank


Thank you for your interest in becoming a rank in Harmed Ore! We're a cozy community and some great friendships have been made along the way. If you enjoy helping others, you could be the next addition to our team.

We seek those that:
- Scout and call ores during Trah
- Actively help others no matter the VOS
- Exemplify good behavior and maturity

Ranks must have Discord since it is our central hub of communication and houses our HarmedBot that tracks all our calls. Ranks must also meet a minimum activity requirement.

Current ranks can recommend potential newcomers to join our team. Admin then reaches out to those on our radar. Whilst it is frowned upon to outright demand rank, a rank application is available for individuals that want to be proactive.

Upon receiving application, you will be observed by ranks for one week. Your activity, helpfulness, and behavior in FC and Discord will be monitored on and off Trah hours. After this observation period, you will be informed by Admin if you are fit to join the team. We look forward to working with you!


Rank Application


Please fill out the following and send this to someone in Admin on Discord or post here in thread!

RSN:
Timezone:
How long have you used the FC:
Are you willing to help relay, scout, and confirm calls:
Will you be a role model in the FC and help others:

Frequently Asked Questions


Here's some of the FAQs we get since the rework came out. Hopefully this helps answer any questions if you're a returning player!


How does the M/S rework affect Trah?


Sadly, the old rush of scouting and world hopping for harmed rune is no more. With the M/S rework, all rocks are non-competitive now and don't deplete. Rune has dropped to T50. This also means no more west miners!

On the bright side: we are looking for new harmed ores! The T90
Light
and
Dark
Animica ores can harmonize and spawn replacing any of the rune, addy, mith, and coal rocks. These ores harmonize at the beginning of the hour and remain till after VOS changes. This means no more constant world hopping!

Instead of calling worlds with just any harmed
Light
or
Dark
ores, we look for lossless layouts for rockertunities, a new mechanic from the rework. This is to maximize exp and ore.


What are Rockertunities?


Rockertunities
(RCTs) are a new mechanic from the M/S Rework.
Rockertunities
will spawn on rocks of the same type you are mining within a 6 tile radius. When clicked, it results in a burst of additional XP and ore. They appear about every 35 seconds as
gold sparkles
on another rock and have a sound effect when they spawn.

Why is the FC only calling certain worlds?


Before we would call and keep track of every rune, addy, mith, and coal on all worlds. Now, you are able to pretty much find any world with Light or Dark ore without the help of an FC. Every rock in the Trah area has a 1/15 chance to harmonize and become Light or Dark Animica.

Instead, the FC now focuses on scouting for the best layouts of Light and Dark Animica based on Rockertunities. The two factors that determine which layouts are best are the amount of ores and the distance between ores.

An isolated pair of Dark or Light ores have rockertunities that are predictable and controllable: they will only spawn on the other ore. If there are three or more within a close range, it may spawn on any of the other ores and thus, more movement/less control. Worlds with short walking distance that are close together are ideal to minimize movement time between rocks and maximize mining time!


Is Trah still worth doing?


Yes! Even though there are native locations for both Light and Dark Animica rocks in the game world, Trah is the best time to mine each ore for a few reasons.

One effect of the Trahaearn VOS is a +20% chance for double ore. Even if you aren't clicking every rockertunity (or you’re completely AFK), you will get more ore this hour compared to regular mining sites.

Since the FC scouts for the most efficient layouts, there is more control over rockertunities compared to regular mining sites. If we are able to find lossless pairs, moving between rockertunities wastes no game ticks and has highest exp and ore per hour.

If you don't want to use porters or a Grace of the Elves, the bank is easily accessible and extremely close by. With an ore box, you don't have to waste any porter charges.

Last, but certainly not least - your favorite people from the community are st
