Mithril ore detail.png

Mithril ore can be mined at level 55 Mining providing 80 Mining experience. After a mithril rock is mined, it will take two minutes until it reappears. Mithril ore is used with four coal to smelt mithril bars. Smelting a mithril bar gives 30 Smithing experience.

Wearing either superior mining gloves or expert mining gloves while mining a mithril rock grants a 25% chance for the rock to not deplete upon mining a mithril ore, allowing you to mine an additional ore before depleting.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When RuneScape was first released, smelting mithril bars required level 55 Smithing. Jagex later redefined the Smithing table such that smelting mithril bars only required level 50 Smithing. This may have been because although mithril requires 55 Mining to mine, getting 55 Mining is much easier than getting 55 Smithing, and as such it would make sense that the requirement to smith it was lower.
  • The metal Mithril features in many fantasy worlds, sometimes spelled mithral. It is found in both the novel and film series The Lord of the Rings, where it is white, as well as Dungeons and Dragons, Final Fantasy, in The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, and World of Warcraft.
  • Mithril ore weighs less than other smithing ores, weighing only 1.814kg rather than the usual 2.267kg. It along with adamantite ore do not follow this trend.
