Rune pickaxe detail.png

The rune pickaxe is the third best pickaxe, after the crystal pickaxe and the dragon pickaxe variants. It is the best pickaxe in free-to-play. The rune pickaxe requires 41 Mining to use, and 40 Attack to equip. Players lacking 40 Attack can still use it for mining. Players cannot smith the rune pickaxe, so it must be obtained from other players or from a shop, as a monster drop, or as a quest reward from the quest "Between a Rock...".
