Dragon pickaxe detail

The dragon pickaxe was released with the Wilderness Rejuvenation on 13 March 2014. It is the fastest and most powerful pickaxe in the game. It requires 60 Attack to wield and level 61 Mining to use. However, some players prefer the rune pickaxe because of their much lower prices.

The pickaxe mines ore at an increased speed (15% faster than the rune pickaxe) and has a special attack which will temporarily boost your mining level by 3. Using the special attack will use 100% of your special attack bar, and closely resembles the Barrelchest anchor's attack animation.

Note: You will need an attack level of 60 to wield the pickaxe in order to use this special attack.

Smouldering stone

A player uses a smouldering stone to create an infernal pickaxe.

Players can combine a smouldering stone with a dragon pickaxe to create an infernal pickaxe, requires 85 Smithing (boosts not allowed) to do so. This process cannot be undone.

The infernal pickaxe will grant the player a 1/3 chance to smelt ores for smithing experience whilst mining. The infernal pickaxe will be able to smelt 5,000 ores before degrading, requiring another smouldering stone or dragon pickaxe to charge it.

Players can also use a dragon pickaxe upgrade kit, obtained from the Bounty Hunter Store, to cosmetically enhance their dragon pickaxes, creating a dragon pickaxe (or). This only alters its appearance, and becomes untradeable. It can be reverted, but the kit will not be retained.
