Rune essence rocks are rocks containing rune essence and pure essence. There is no requirement to mine rune essence however pure essence requires a Mining level of 30 or higher. Four of these rocks are found in the Rune Essence mine, the only other location these are found is the Lunar Isle mine where there is one.
The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
- patch 6 October 2010 (Update):
- Fixed a crack in the rune essence rock.
- Prior to the Mining and Smithing rework Rune essence rocks were one of the few rocks which did not deplete; if you prospect the rune essence rock, it will say "This rock contains unbound Rune Stone essence."
- If you look at the rune essence rock from the top, you can see stars floating around.
- Bronze pickaxe used to yield essence from the rune essence rocks quicker than other pickaxes. This was fixed with Mining and Smithing rework on 7 January 2019.
