Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A popular place to mine iron was the mining area near Al Kharid. This had three rocks in a triangular formation, which allowed for faster mining due to the close proximity of the respawns. When the Al Kharid resource dungeon was added, the rocks were rearranged.
  • Iron ore, like all other mined rocks, used to respawn at a rate indirectly proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world before the update on 13 March 2017.
