Imcando pickaxe detail

The Imcando pickaxe is a gilded dragon pickaxe that has been combined by Thurgo using components from the Lava Flow Mine. To be obtained, it must be assembled from four component parts (fragment 1, 2, 3, 4), a gilded dragon pickaxe, 1,000,000 coins, and a redberry pie after Birthright of the Dwarves quest. A normal dragon pickaxe cannot be used. The Imcando pickaxe requires 60 Attack to wield and 81 Mining to mine with. A gilded dragon pickaxe that is stored on the tool belt can be used to create the Imcando pickaxe, but doing so will remove the stored pickaxe from the tool belt, and an iron pickaxe will automatically take its place on the tool belt instead.

It has an increased mining rate within the Lava Flow Mine and the same speed as a dragon pickaxe elsewhere. Unlike the dragon pickaxe and gilded dragon pickaxe, the Imcando pickaxe cannot be placed in the tool belt.

When the Imcando pickaxe is used to mine ore, it has a 25% chance of instantly incinerating the ore, rewarding Smithing experience equivalent to smelting that ore, in addition to the mining experience for mining it. Similar to the Inferno adze, any incinerated resource is destroyed immediately.

The incineration effect will not occur when mining materials that cannot be smelted, such as rune essence or granite. It also will not activate on ores mined from divine locations.

This special effect can apply to extra ores produced by the Varrock armour, but both ores still have an individual 25% chance of being incinerated, so the effect may activate on one or both ores.

Enchanting the pickaxe at a lava geyser in the Lava Flow Mine will turn it into an enchanted Imcando pickaxe. The enchanted version is given automatically when the pickaxe is first created, along with 100 enchantment points. The appearance of the pickaxe changes depending on whether or not it is enchanted with the enchanted pickaxe having a particle effect and a depleted pickaxe with no particle effect.

If a player is carrying an Imcando pickaxe with them (equipped or not) when they finish mining a geyser in the Lava Flow Mine, no additional pickaxe fragments will be received. Instead, the Imcando pickaxe in their possession will have all of its charges restored.

When killed in the Wilderness and holding it in the inventory or wielding it, on drop it will remain as an Imcando Pickaxe and not revert to gold or any other item.

The Imcando pickaxe can be reverted to a dragon pickaxe by having Lady Ithell in Prifddinas change the Imcando pickaxe into a crystal pickaxe, and then revert the crystal pickaxe into a dragon pickaxe. However, this requires 4,000 harmonic dust which will not be refunded, and the dragon pickaxe will not be gilded. Alternatively, if you meet the conditions, you may have Nastroth reset your Defence level to 1. Doing this will reset several quests and rewards, including Birthright of the Dwarves, and will revert your Imcando pickaxe back into a dragon pickaxe.

  • Initially, the design of the pickaxe was to use a blast fusion hammer, but as it required the completion of While Guthix Sleeps, it was changed to 1,000,000 coins for Thurgo to purchase.
  • This was one of three player-created pieces of content released with the Birthright of the Dwarves quest.[1]
  • Interestingly the pickaxe will incinerate things you do not have the required smithing level to smelt (Since the requirement of 82 smithing is set for Birthright of the Dwarves, this currently only applies to Runite and Corrupted ore).
