Pickaxes, often abbreviated to picks, are tools used to mine any type of ore or otherwise mineable items, and some types of blockages in Gielinor. Pickaxes can either be held in the inventory or wielded; but, to wield a pickaxe, the wielder's Attack level must be high enough. Wielding the pickaxe provides extra space in the inventory. This is useful when mining for a profit, as one extra ore can be held.

Higher level pickaxes have a greater chance of obtaining an ore from a rock and thus are generally faster to mine with. However, certain low level rocks become attainable at maximum speed at higher Mining levels, even with lower level pickaxes.

TriviaEdit

  • In the early days of RuneScape Classic, there was only one type of pickaxe available, named simply Pickaxe. It resembled a steel pickaxe and could not be equipped. When different types of pickaxes were released in May 2003, all pickaxes in the bank became the bronze pickaxes that are commonly found today.
  • Broken pickaxes, before being removed after an update, were able to be wielded. But once unequipped, they could no longer be equipped by the player. They possessed the same bonuses as their unbroken counterparts.
