Rune pickaxe detail

The rune pickaxe is the second best pickaxe available in Old School RuneScape after the dragon pickaxe. The rune pickaxe requires 41 Mining to use, and 40 Attack to equip. Players should note that even if they lack 40 attack, they can still use the pickaxe for mining purposes. The rune pickaxe can be purchased from Nurmof in the Dwarven Mines or Yarsul in the Mining Guild for 32,000 coins. Players cannot smith the rune pickaxe, they must be obtained either from the shop, other players, or as a quest reward from the quest "Between a Rock..." The rune pickaxe is also a semi-common reward from completing a Clue scroll (hard).
