Respawn rateEdit

Iron ore, like all other mined rocks, respawns at a rate inversely proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world. If the world is empty, the ore respawns in 10 seconds; if it is full (with 2000 players), it respawns in 5 seconds. Thus the respawn rate of iron ore is

10-\frac{x}{400} seconds,

where x is the number of players in the world.

A table of respawn rates is given below.

Players 0 200 400 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000
Respawn time (s) 10.0 9.5 9.0 8.5 8.0 7.5 7.0 6.5 6.0 5.5 5.0

Trivia Edit

  • There was a popular place to mine iron in the mining area near Al Kharid, which has a place in the mine where there are three rocks in a triangle formation, making the player able to mine iron faster due to the three respawns. After the dungeoneering resource dungeon update, the triangle formation changed.
  • There are some spots where the graphics for the iron ore rocks have not been updated, including the mining spot to the East of East Ardougne.
