Iron rock

From Old School RuneScape Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

An iron rock is a protruding rock containing iron ore. A player with a Mining level of 15 or higher can mine iron ore from rocks found in various mines, granting 35 Mining experience for each ore mined. After being mined, an iron rock takes 5.4 seconds to respawn.

Iron is the most popular ore that free-to-play players power-mine for experience. At the Mining Guild, Al Kharid Mine, Piscatoris Mine, Legends' Guild Mine, and Verdant Valley, there are three rocks in a triangle formation. Using a Rune pickaxe with a high Mining level, a player can extract the iron ore from the rock in one strike (0.6 seconds). Allowing another 0.6 seconds for the player to turn to the next rock, this means a player can mine all three rocks in 5.4 seconds, which is exactly the amount of time an iron rock takes to respawn, so players can continuously mine iron and gain Mining experience.

Banking[edit | edit source]

Iron ore rocks that are close to a bank include:

  1. Talk to Kazgar and have him take you to the mines.
  2. Mine until your inventory is full of ore.
  3. Go to Mistag and have him show you out of the mines.
  4. Go into the Lumbridge Castle basement through the hole and bank at the Culinaromancer's Chest if Recipe for Disaster is partially completed, or bank at the Lumbridge Castle bank on the top floor if not.
  5. Deposit all the ore and then go back to the mines and repeat.
