Mithril ore detail

Mithril ore is obtained from mining mithril ore rocks, requiring level 55 Mining, and granting 80 Mining experience. Mithril can be smelted in a furnace with 4 heaps of coal to form a mithril bar, requiring level 50 Smithing. Mithril bars can be smithed into various types of weapons and armour.

Noted ores can occasionally be found inside barrels around RuneScape.

Respawn rateEdit

Mithril ore, like all other mined rocks, respawns at a rate directly proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world. If the world is empty, the ore respawns in 4 minutes; if it is full (with 2000 players), it respawns in 2 minutes. Thus the respawn rate of mithril ore is

4-\frac{x}{1000} minutes,

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 4:00 3:48 3:36 3:24 3:12 3:00 2:48 2:36 2:24 2:12 2:00

A common way to overcome the slow respawn rate of mithril ore is world switching. This is done by mining the ore on a world until you have mined all the rocks and then logging out to the lobby and switching to a different world. Repeat until the player's inventory is full.
