Mithril pickaxe: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

The Mithril pickaxe is a pickaxe stronger than the steel pickaxe. It requires level 20 Attack to wield, and level 21 Mining to mine with. It can be used in combat or in mining to mine rocks. Since the 7 May 2008 update, players can smith mithril pickaxes after completion of the Perils of Ice Mountain quest. Level 55 or higher Smithing, 2 mithril bars, granting 100 smithing experience, a hammer is required to do so. Players can purchase this pickaxe from Nurmof's Pickaxe Shop in the Dwarven Mine.

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.

Its appearance was altered by the 9 September 2009 update.

  • On the day of release, when the Perils of Ice Mountain quest is completed, level for smithing of mithril pickaxes was displayed as 555, instead of 55. This has been fixed.
