Currently copper rocks respawn in 3 seconds.
Copper rock, like all other mined rocks, used to respawn at a rate indirectly proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world before the update on 13 March 2017. If the world was empty, the ore respawned in 4 seconds; if it was full (with 2000 players), it respawned in 2 seconds. Thus the respawn rate of copper ore was
where x is the number of players in the world.
A table of the historical respawn rates is given below.
|Respawn time||4.0 s||3.8 s||3.6 s||3.4 s||3.2 s||3.0 s||2.8 s||2.6 s||2.4 s||2.2 s||2.0 s|
It is worthwhile to note that copper rocks had the same respawn rate as tin rocks.
