Dragon pickaxe detail.png

The dragon pickaxe was released with the Wilderness Rejuvenation on 13 March 2014. It is the fastest and most powerful pickaxe in the game. It requires 60 Attack to wield and level 61 Mining to use. However, some players prefer the rune pickaxe because of their much lower prices. A dragon pickaxe can be repaired for 34000gp at Nurmof's Pickaxe Shop in the Dwarven Mine.

The pickaxe mines ore at an increased speed (15% faster than the rune pickaxe) and it boasts a special attack which will temporarily boost your mining level by 3. Using the special attack will use 100% of your special attack bar, and highly resembles the Barrelchest anchor's attack animation.

Note: You will need an attack level of 60 to wield the pickaxe in order to use this special attack.

A player performs the Dragon pickaxes special attack.

Players can use a dragon pickaxe upgrade kit, obtained from the Bounty Hunter Store, to cosmetically enhance their dragon pickaxes, creating a dragon pickaxe (or). This only alters its appearance, and becomes untradeable. It can be reverted, but the kit will not be retained.
