Dragon pickaxe detail.png

The dragon pickaxe is a pickaxe that requires 60 Attack to wield and level 60 Mining to use. It takes a minimum of 1.8 seconds to gather ore from rocks with this pickaxe.

Dragon pickaxes are very rare drops from monsters on the Chaos Dwarf Battlefield after completion of Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf, and Chaos Giants after Birthright of the Dwarves. The quests do not need to be completed in order to use the pickaxe. They are also a possible reward from the Triskelion Treasures and the Motherlode Maw. The ring of wealth does not affect the chance to get the pickaxe as a drop.

The dragon pickaxe can be gilded by the Liquid gold nymph after receiving the full golden mining suit. The gilded dragon pickaxe is cosmetic, cannot be lent, and gives no bonuses over the regular pickaxe.

The dragon pickaxe can be permanently be upgraded to a crystal pickaxe by talking to Lady Ithell in the Ithell Clan district of Prifddinas at the cost of 4,000 harmonic dust.

The pickaxe can be stored on a tool belt. Players who wish to augment a dragon pickaxe already on their tool belt they may right-click it in their toolbelt to remove.
