Rune pickaxe detail

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 the Dragon pickaxe or Inferno Adze pickaxe - the former requires level 61 Mining; the latter 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 is required for the TokTz-Ket-Dill quest, although, an update allows a dragon pickaxe to be used.

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.

On 9 September 2009, the Rune pickaxe received an update to change its equipped figure and item image.

As of 17 June 2013, this pickaxe can be stored on a toolbelt, although it cannot be taken off.

TriviaEdit

  • The Rune Pickaxe used against TokTz-Ket-Dill in dominion tower is golden named (showing it's a member's item), unlike the normal Rune Pickaxe which is silver named.
