Mithril pickaxe detail

The mithril pickaxe is a pickaxe stronger than the steel pickaxe. It requires level 30 Attack to wield, and level 21 Mining to mine with. It can be used in combat or in Mining to mine rocks. It is one of the fastest pickaxes to mine with, and it takes a minimum of 1.8 seconds to gather ore from rocks with this pickaxe. Since the 7 May 2008 update, players can make mithril pickaxes using Smithing, after completion of the Perils of Ice Mountain quest. Level 55 or higher Smithing, 2 mithril bars are required to do so, granting 100 Smithing experience.

Some people prefer using them while Runecrafting at the Abyss, claiming they are nearly as good as a rune Pickaxe, yet weigh less. This is a minor trade-off as players will have greater run energy due to the lower weight, and mid to high level miners will not notice the slight difference in time it takes to use the pickaxe for activities in the Abyss.

The mithril pickaxe can be gilded by the liquid gold nymph after receiving the full golden mining suit, creating the gilded mithril pickaxe. It is cosmetic and gives no more bonuses than the regular pickaxe.

Its appearance was altered by the 9 September 2009 update.

As of 17 June 2013, this pickaxe can be stored on a tool belt.
