Free-to-play Mining training/Former methods
This page was created to try and preserve information from the Free-to-play Mining training guide that has since been replaced with information about more effective methods (see here on the guide's talk page for full context). We do not and should not attempt to document information about ineffective/obsolete training methods in the mainspace. It is unnecessary and confusing when presented alongside the up to date training guides. While historical training information is sortof interesting, it is not practical to write about on the wiki. Are we supposed to have subpages for each time a method is changed in the guide? How do we go back and verify what methods were "popular" or efficient in the past?

Accept verdict as article creator. Speedy delete it, or I can move it to my userspace. I don't mind hosting these nostalgic training methods at all — It'd be my honor in fact to keep this piece of history alive. Especially since some of them might have to be restored anyway once mining changes. (Hoping for a general buff that maybe forgets rune essence or nerfs it to what a level 1 "ore" should be. Air runecrafting in Daemonheim gives ~0.1 xp, comparably.) Note: I mustn't be the only one who considers this bronze pickaxe speed-mining thing a bug and thus refuse to (ab)use it. Clever use of gameplay mechanics though! Other notes: Although we are documenting Level changers now, so the line has been drawn well to the left from my history / archival effort, on the allowed article significance scale. Not exactly the same category of course. Note 3: How do we format these discussions again? I thought it was bullet points with votes in bold. But then bullets were discouraged. If this is even up for a vote. And do the comments go above, below, or in line? Hope this "one long line" is okay. I looked at another RFD for reference and it looked the same. Except shorter. Yes, I'll shut up now. 3ICE (talk) 14:03, February 26, 2018 (UTC)
