The Rune pickaxe is a pickaxe that is stronger than the Adamant pickaxe. It requires level 50 Attack to wield and level 41 Mining to mine with. It can be used in combat or in Mining to extract ore from rocks. It is also the strongest pickaxe available for non-members. (Members can acquire Crystal pickaxe, Dragon pickaxe or Inferno Adze pickaxe - Crystal pickaxe needs 70 attack to wield and 71 mining to use, dragon pickaxe requires level 60 attack to wield and 61 mining to use and the inferno adze requires level 41 Mining and level 92 Firemaking and mines at the same speed as rune pickaxe.) When a player mines with a rune pickaxe, they will obtain ores at a significantly faster rate than when using an Adamant pickaxe. Players can make a Rune pickaxe with the Smithing skill at level 90 by using 2 rune bars after the completion of the Perils of Ice Mountain quest. Rune pickaxes can be purchased from Nurmof's Pickaxe Shop in the Dwarven Mine and at Tati's Pickaxe-Is-Mine in Keldagrim. One is also received at the completion of the Between a Rock... quest. It is also a drop from Warped tortoises. A rune pickaxe (or better) is required to complete the TokTz-Ket-Dill quest.
