The Infernal pickaxe is a special pickaxe that requires level 61 Mining to use. It is created by using a Smouldering stone on a dragon pickaxe, requiring level 85 Smithing to create (cannot be boosted). Doing so grants 200 Mining experience and 350 Smithing experience.

A player uses a smouldering stone to create an infernal pickaxe.

Mining rocks with it will give a 1/3 chance for the ore to automatically combust. This will consume the ore and will grant some Smithing experience based on the amount that would usually be gained when creating a bar from the ore, without requiring coal. For rocks that cannot be smelted, smithing experience will be gained based on the level required to mine the rock. For gold ore, 9 xp is gained. For sandstone, and Granite, between 6 and 21 experience is gained. At some mining spots, such as Motherlode Mine, Volcanic Mine, amethyst, gem rocks, or dense runestone, the infernal pickaxe does not consume ores and acts as a regular dragon pickaxe.

Players must use the tradeable dragon pickaxe to create the infernal pickaxe; attempting to use other variants will result the chatbox stating "The cosmetically upgraded pickaxe is too beautiful to convert into an infernal pickaxe."

The infernal pickaxe possesses the same special attack as the dragon pickaxe, which will boost a player's Mining level by 3. This consumes 100% special attack energy.

When mining in the Mining Guild the smithing effect will not negate the ability to receive unidentified minerals.

The infernal pickaxe cannot be reverted back to a tradeable dragon pickaxe or smouldering stone. If not protected on death above level 20 Wilderness, the infernal pickaxe is converted into 11,000.

Degradation[edit | edit source]

The infernal pickaxe has 5,000 charges before degrading. When fully depleted, the pickaxe can still be used as a regular dragon pickaxe. However, it will remain untradeable. Recharging the infernal pickaxe requires another smouldering stone or dragon pickaxe.
