Runite ore rocks are a type of rock that can be mined through the Mining skill in various places throughout RuneScape. Runite rocks can be mined with a Mining level of 85 or higher, granting 125 Mining experience upon receiving runite ore. After being mined, runite rocks take an average of 18 minutes and 45 seconds to respawn. Due to this length of time, nearly all players who mine runite prefer to switch worlds rather than wait for it to respawn. It is recommended not to hop to busy servers, as busy worlds are more likely to have their ores already depleted.

When mining runite, players may find it useful to keep track of the time that they mined the ore, as well as the world number and population. If done accurately, players can hop to other worlds (keeping more notes along the way) to mine runite while keeping an eye on the time, and then hop back to worlds where they previously mined runite when it is about time for the ore to respawn. This method of collecting runite ore only applies when mining in popular areas like the Keldagrim north mine. Runite rocks in places like the Lava Maze Dungeon mine are rarely targeted by players, and as such there is little need to worry about the ore being gone. However, such places are usually dangerous.

Respawn rateEdit

Runite ore, like all other mined rocks, respawns at a rate indirectly proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape server. If the server is completely empty, the ore respawns in 25 minutes; if it is completely full (with 2,000 players), it respawns in 12 minutes and 30 seconds. Thus the respawn rate of runite ore is

25-\frac{x}{160} minutes, or 1500-\frac{3x}{8} seconds,

where x is the number of players in the server.

At the reinstatement of Free Trade in February 2011 runite ore respawn times in the Wilderness were reduced to 2/3rds of their normal value, resulting in a faster respawn rate. The respawn rate in the Wilderness is thus \left(25-\frac{x}{160}\right)*\frac{2}{3} minutes, where x is the number of players in the world.

A table of respawn rates is given below.
