The dragon pickaxe (or) is obtained by using a dragon pickaxe upgrade kit on a dragon pickaxe. It is a cosmetic addition, and provides the same benefits as a regular dragon pickaxe, and becomes untradeable. The pickaxe may be made tradeable again by right-clicking "Revert", returning it back to normal. The upgrade kit will not be retained.
If a player dies with the pickaxe and it is not one of the player's protected items, the pickaxe will revert to its default appearance, and players must use another dragon pickaxe upgrade kit to enhance its appearance again.
