Crystal pickaxe detail.png

The crystal pickaxe is a level 70 Mining pickaxe. The pickaxe is obtained by trading a dragon pickaxe and 4,000 harmonic dust to Lady Ithell in the Ithell district of Prifddinas (also requiring Plague's End). Players may convert their crystal pickaxe back to a dragon pickaxe by speaking to Lady Ithell; however, they will not be given back the harmonic dust previously used to upgrade the tool.

The augmented crystal pickaxe cannot be reverted directly; the augmentation must first be removed by using an augmentation dissolver. All installed gizmos will be destroyed in the process.

If the player has an Imcando pickaxe or a gilded dragon pickaxe, Lady Ithell will first downgrade it to a dragon pickaxe before upgrading it to the crystal pickaxe. If a gilded dragon pickaxe was used to create a crystal pickaxe, it will remain gilded if it is downgraded again.

The crystal pickaxe may be added to the tool belt. Players who wish to augment a crystal pickaxe already on their tool belt may right-click it in their toolbelt to remove.

It is also one of the three required items to make the Pickaxe of Earth and Song.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Even though the mining requirement is level 70, the pickaxe can only be obtained in Prifddinas after finishing Plague's End which has a non-boostable requirement of 75 mining.
  • When trying to gild the crystal pickaxe, the nymph will say "That pickaxe is coated with crystal. I'm so sorry. I don't understand elven magic well enough to add gold to crystal."
  • Currently a bug exists where more than 4,000 harmonic dust can be taken by Lady Ithell if attempting to upgrade a dragon pickaxe to a crystal pickaxe.
  • Prior to the Mining and Smithing rework, the Crystal pickaxe had a special attack, Shock, which required 100% adrenaline and drained the opponent's Attack, Ranged, and Magic by 5%. It was removed with the rework, as well as the combat bonuses of all pickaxes, making pickaxes a skilling-only tool.
