Types of pickaxes[edit | edit source]
The types of pickaxes range from bronze to rune and each one requires a different mining level to use. Higher levelled pickaxes will cause the player to automatically retry at swinging at the rock a greater amount of times with one click on the rock. All of the pickaxes can be bought from Nurmof in the Dwarven Mine and the following table is based on his prices.
|Bronze pickaxe||1||1 coin|
|Iron pickaxe||1||140 coins|
|Steel pickaxe||6||500 coins|
|Mithril pickaxe||21||1300 coins|
|Adamant pickaxe||31||3200 coins|
|Rune pickaxe||41||32000 coins|
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Unlike in Runescape 2, in Classic pickaxes only affect the amount of tries at an ore, not the actual chance of getting the ore.
- Prior to update of 27 May 2003 there was only one type of pickaxe, known as "Pickaxe" whose appearance was like the bubble item players see when mining. Their usefulness was that equivalent of Bronze pickaxes.
