Seren stone would most likely be your best bet until 97, then do Alaea crablets until 99 mining. Don't forget your Urns, Juju potions, Quarrymaster auras, Lava titan, and Golem outfit/Golden mining suit. ::)

I just went from 92-99 mining in 3 days by grinding seren stones. If you have an island for the crablets, do those, but I didn't so I stuck to Priff. I think the new animca rocks are 180k xp/hour at 99 Mining, but I don't know the new rate for seren stones. Plus the new stamina mechanic might have changed things. The jury's still out on what's best for XP rates in the new system, but I imagine making burial armor tops the list for smithing.

I did the math and if you start at lvl 80 smithing with 10k Bane ore and do burial armor during dxp weekend coming up on Feb 22-25 you'll get 99 smithing. Not a bad deal at all, especially if you have the bars smelted beforehand.

That definitely sounds fair, what are those ores currently selling at? Smithing is a great skill to knock out of the way during RuneScape's Double XP weekend(s). It's quite expensive otherwise, and a handy skill to have completed now with the new mining and smithing rework.

Full breakdown of 80-99 smithing on DXP weekend Feb 22-25
80-99 Requires 11,048,363 xp
Each Bane Burial set gives 204,960 xp on DXP that is 409,920 xp per set
11,048,363 divided by 409,920 is 26.95.... so We'll round up to 27 full sets
27 sets X 192 bars per set is 5,184 bars and banite is 2 ores per bar so that means a total of 10,368 ores are needed.
I'm not sure what the prices are currently on ores and bars, all I keep hearing is that the GE prices are wrong.
What I am hearing from other people mining right now is that you can mine your ore, sell it, buy the bars and make some money and still get 99 smithing. I hope this helps.

This mining/smithing rework has made my mining cape so much more common it upsets me. I need to get smithing but it takes ages so I will probably wait until I've gotten protean bars :P

It's good to see Jagex always applying new updates with RuneScape, that's what really helps keep a game alive these days. Listen to your players! :P I think the new mining and smithing update is pretty cool.

Looking back at it now that it's been out for awhile I do like it. At least for me it made getting them to 99 together much easier than it was before the rework which I think is great for complimentary skills.
