The crystal pickaxe is an item used in Mining. It requires 71 Mining and Song of the Elves to create and use, with 50 Agility and 70 Attack required to wield it. It possesses the same special attack as the dragon pickaxe, and has a 1/4 chance to mine an ore one tick faster than a rune pickaxe (an improvement over the 1/6 chance of the dragon pickaxe). Thus, the crystal pickaxe is roughly 3.03% faster than a dragon pickaxe and 9.09% faster than a rune pickaxe, if constantly mining.

Players can create a crystal pickaxe via a singing bowl by combining a dragon pickaxe, 120 crystal shards and a crystal tool seed. Doing so requires level 76 Smithing and Crafting to sing the crystal (the levels can be boosted), and grants 6,000 experience in both skills. If the player does not meet the Smithing and Crafting requirements, they can have Conwenna or Reese sing the crystal for them for an extra 60 crystal shards, for a total of 180.

When created, the crystal pickaxe starts off at 10,000 charges and degrades like all crystal equipment, with one charge being depleted for each ore that is mined using it; once the pickaxe's charges have been fully depleted, it can no longer be used for mining until more charges are added to it. Wearing an elven signet while using crystal equipment will provide a 5% chance to not consume charges.

In order to add charges to the crystal pickaxe, crystal shards must be used on it (this can be done before it is inactive as well), with each shard granting 100 charges, up to a maximum of 20,000. Dismantling a crystal pickaxe will return the dragon pickaxe and crystal tool seed to the player and doing so will lose all crystal shard charges that were previously loaded.

A dangerous death in PvP causes the crystal pickaxe to revert to a dragon pickaxe, which will be then dropped for the killer. All crystal shards will be lost should this happen.

Special attack[edit | edit source]

The crystal pickaxe's special attack, Rock Knocker, temporarily boosts the player's Mining level by 3 (players will need to have 70 Attack and 50 Agility to utilise this special). This consumes 100% of the player's special attack energy.

As long as a player can wield the pickaxe, the special attack can be used to mine with the pickaxe starting at level 70.
