The Wilderness

A map of the Wilderness.

Mining runite ore, which is a high-level ore that frequently sells for a high price (12,225 coins) due to its use in producing runite bars via Smithing, is an accolade in itself. They are highly popular and often are depleted of their resources, so players need to switch worlds and employ the world switching tactic in order to find fresh runite rocks. There are limited locations to mine runite, but a notable and popular place for both members and non-members alike is at Wilderness Rune Mine, which contains two rocks. It is located north-west of the Lava Maze in level 46 Wilderness. Since it is in the Wilderness, players should not take anything they are not prepared to lose. It's also suggested for players to mine with extreme caution since there is the always-looming threat of a player killer.

Before venturing out there, players should bring a few pieces of food and a Melee weapon in which the weapon is optional, but it could still help. Also, members could wear the Serpentine helm, which could help ward off threats. Also, having a scout, which is generally a low-level, noob account, can be used to assess the risks and find available rocks.

Regardless, if players wish to avoid the hassles and dangers of the Wilderness, they can try the other mine locations and employ the world switching tactic. Nonetheless, it takes around 12 minutes for a rock to respawn depending on how long ago it was mined.

With progression and luck, players can mine between 30 and 90 ores an hour, thus yielding between 366,750 and 1,100,250 coins, but the typical norm averages at roughly 40 ores per hour, which is 489,000 coins, due to constant world hopping and bank time. Theoretically, up to 60 ores per hour can be achieved (733,500).
