Rune pickaxe detail

The Rune pickaxe is a level 50 pickaxe. It requires level 50 Attack to wield and level 41 Mining to mine with. It is also the strongest pickaxe available for non-members.

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.

The Rune pickaxe can be gilded by the Liquid gold nymph after receiving the full Golden mining suit, creating the Gilded rune pickaxe. It is cosmetic and gives no more bonuses than the regular pickaxe.

As of 17 June 2013, this pickaxe can be stored on the tool belt, although it cannot be taken off. Doing this has no requirements, and it will act as the highest-level pickaxe you can use.
