Quote taken directly from runescape.com
 

Miners throughout Gielinor are uncovering a mysterious new element: starlight ore, as well as even more precious and rare starborn diamonds. On top of that, monsters have been dropping blueprints for extraordinary new starfire weapons.
 
 

Starfire_Weapons-25163243.png

 
 
For the next twelve days, most mining tasks in the game will have a chance to yield the ore needed to forge these spectacular new weapons. The blueprints can be obtained as drops from most monsters in the game, and - for members - there's a chance to pick up the diamonds when mining, too.

You can also pick up starlight ore, the blueprints and starborn diamonds on the Squeal of Fortune during this time.
 
Ivar at the Artisans' Workshop can forge the new weapons for you, in exchange for the necessary ore and blueprints. If you're a RuneScape member, he can also embed a starborn diamond into any starfire weapon, upgrading it to an amazing starfury weapon.

You’ll find starlight ore, starborn diamonds ,blueprints and even starfury weapons on the Squeal of Fortune and across Gielinor between Friday 26th April 00:00 GMT and Monday 6th May 23:59 GMT.
 
Any unused ore, blueprints and diamonds will disappear from the game on Monday 20th May. You’ll be reminded of this in game, during the preceding week.

You can purchase spins here, or by clicking ‘Add Spins’ in the Squeal of Fortune interface. Don’t forget that members get two daily spins instead of one, and can wield the mighty starfury weapons!

Discuss this here.


FAQ from the forum:
 

What do I need to make the weapons, and how do I do it?
To create a starfire weapon, bring 10,000 starlight ore and any of the three sets of blueprints to the Artisans' Workshop in Falador and speak to Ivar. You can also upgrade any starfire weapon to a starfury weapon (a members-only version with higher level ranges and an adorned look) by bringing it - along with a starborn diamond - to Ivar on a members' world.
 
What weapons can I get?
There's a choice of two-handed sword, a shortbow and a staff.
 
Do they need to be the right blueprints for the right weapons?
Yes. There are separate blueprints for the three weapon types.
 
Do I need a certain skill level to use starfire or starfury weapons?
The weapons are designed to be useful for players of a wide range of levels, and can be wielded right from level 1. Like other weapons available during past Squeal of Fortune releases, you can change the stats and required level of the weapons with a right click. Level ranges for the weapons are as follows:
 
Starfire: 1, 10, 20, 30.
Starfury: 1, 20, 40, 60.
 
How many can I have?
You can have one of each type.
 
Are they tradeable?
No.
 
Do I need to be a member?
Free players can pick up ore and blueprints or win them on the Squeal of Fortune, and make starfire weapons. However, starborn diamonds and starfury weapons are members-only items.
 
What activities will get me the parts I need for the weapons?
Most mining activities have a chance to yield starlight ore. That chance is increased if you're mining a shooting star. If you're a member, there's also a chance to pick up starborn diamonds while mining.
 
The blueprints have a chance to drop from most monsters in the game.
 
You can get any of these parts on the Squeal of Fortune.
 
You can obtain the items through any of these methods until 23:59 GMT on Monday the 6th of May 2013.
 
What if I don't want to make the weapons, or if I have stuff left over after the promotion?
Ivar will take any unwanted starlight ore you have, in exchange for modest amounts of Mining or Smithing XP. Don't forget that it'll disappear from the game on the 20th of May, though!
 
Help! I lost my starfire/starfury weapon!
Not to worry - Diango can return it to you for a fee of gold coins. The cost will vary, depending on the weapon's highest level requirement that you meet. Note that you can only retrieve a starfury weapon from Diango on a members' world.

This sounded like a great new addition to mining.... then they had to go and make it expire on the 20th of May... :down:

I think calling these weapons amazing or powerful is a bit of an overstatement considering they only go up to level 60. :P Personally, I'll be trading in the ores for Mining XP.

The ore is tradeable and I've seen people buying it for quite a lot of money, but the weapons are untradeable.

Right now, depends how lucky you are. I'm seeing prices of 600-1000gp each ore. Sold all that I got from SoF for 600 each.

Maybe this is going to be a test run for ideas they might have for additions to mining and smithing (#hereshoping) (not "here shoping")

Since you can reclaim the item if you lose it. Does that mean If I die in the wildy, I could just reclaim another. You could annoy people in the wildy with those.

hehe good idea sadly the damage is probably just not there except on ftp worlds but you cant take the starfury to ftp worlds so the only real way to do anything other than minorly annoying ppl would be a team of starfury wielders  it costs 50k to get the lvl 60 starfurys back so in order to be cost effective you would have to have a preaty good team or im not sure if this is possible but maybe a healer

I'm not sure on exact stats, but I wouldn't expect them to be anything spectacular, the maximum level of the Starfire weapons is only 30, and the Starfury only 60.

I'm selling the ores because I haven't won that many on SOF ; plus I went mining and only got a few mining concentrated coal deposits (nowhere else) and that's a pain.

Hello, this topic has been locked. There are many possible reasons for this...

  • the question you are asking has been answered,
  • you may have posted in the wrong forum,
  • the topic could be degenerating into/has already started a flame war,
  • the posts were straying too far from the original topic.

Your topic may have also expired. This means that no one has posted on it for a while, and it would be better to start a new topic to keep the conversation fresh.

This list of reasons that your topic may have been closed is given instead of a specific reason because moderators have the option to close multiple topics at once, with this standard reply added to the topic. This is much faster than closing multiple topics manually, and gives us more time for our other work.

If you have any further questions as to why this topic was closed, let me encourage you to check the FAQs, and to PM me if you do not find the answer there.

Have a nice RuneHQ day. :D
