Unofficial Mini game world suggestion[edit source]

World 58 seems like a good choice for this since it has the Blast Furnace. Sanctumanon 16:07, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Sacred clay pickaxes[edit source]

Dwarven ancestor spirit.[edit source]

As you've managed to catch possessed pickaxe, and happen to have ghostspeak amulet(or cramulet), you'll be able to have lil' chat with this dwarf.

First off he yeld 'Ok, you got me!', 'I'll add a bit of spirit to your pickaxe. You'll get extra experience from mining for ten minutes!'. Then you have few options to ask, talk about, first i asked who is he. He told me story by that, then.. Wich goes here then:

'A hundred years ago, i was the second-best miner in Keldagrim.', 'No - I was the best miner in Keldagrim. I know it!', 'There was a mining competition coming up. I had won second place the year before, and I know I would have won this time...', 'But on the day before the competition, a lava monster killed me!', 'Maybe if i had won the competition, I would have been able to move on. Now i'm stuck.'

Now there also was option to rage to him, stating: 'You can't go round possessing people's pickaxes!', wich to this fella answers: 'Hey, I was just having some fun. I didn't mean anything by it.'

There was 3rd option wich i missed some what, but it was an option leading to cancel the talk, surely.

So yeshhh, this dwarf simply was bit too greedy fella, wanting to be BEST, wich backstabbed him to death, cause of the lava monster, how unfortunant, isn't it? Eh!?

-Unknown, unsane lad. ^^

Thanks very much for this info. I've used it to create an article about him. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 18:02, May 16, 2011 (UTC)

Golden mining suit - is it worth it?[edit source]


I see this is very similar to the lumberjack outfit and i know the time spent collecting the lumberjack outfit isnt worth the small exp boost.

Is this the same? i will have to do about 9 quests to access this feature (i was planning to do them sometime anyway to improove my grave) so just basically wondering is this worth it?

no signiture

The armour is definetely worth the time more than lumberjack, mainly because you don't get (much)woodcutting xp from doing temple treks, but you still get quite a lot of xp from mining in the lava flow mine. This makes your xp continue to rise fast enough, but you also get the armour for future use outside of the mine. I think it's definetely worth the time. You just got to have patience though. And quite a lot. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 01:52, May 17, 2011 (UTC)
Personally, I don't think the suit is going to be worth it. For one, I find wearing Strength equipment while mining makes a significant difference, and the Varrock Platebody allows you to occasionally mine double ores, which alone is better than the full mining suit.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Taneer (talk).
2 very good points of view, but since i just want to quickly raise my mining lvl (not going for 99) i think the varrock plate (besides all the other advantages) will be much more efficient as that gives an approximate 10% bonus exp for mining the extra 1 coal in 10. so maybe if i was going for 99 i would consider the gold suit but since i just want a quick boost i will just attain the varrock armour. thanks alot!
First time posting on runescape wiki but fyi golden mining platebody counts as the varrock platebody so actually u will get even more xp with the suit

Dwarven spirits[edit source]

You don't need a ghostspeak amulet to earn the reward from them aslong as you hit continue on chat box was removed which got that edited on dunno by who

+10% for 10minues


Strange Rocks[edit source]

Although chopping Ivy produces strange rocks, Lava Flow Mine does not seem to produce any. Is it worth adding to trivia or a relevent section?

Thanks for pointing that out! ~~Gielinoran~~

Exp per hour[edit source]

Could somone sort out the amount of exp per hour?

And could someone possibly add this to the mining training p2p?

I was getting around 35-40k xp an hour, 81 mining, dragon pickaxe, lava titan.

Requirements[edit source]

It says in the requirements that you also need 77 Strength, what's that for?? Also, isn't the 70 Smithing just if you want to fix a boiler? People who don't have the smithing level won't train there because they think that is a requirement to train in there. Vecna skull.pngWildbeast300Dragon claw.png 09:42, May 21, 2011 (UTC)

Those are requirements for the quests which you must complete in order to access the mine. 21:12, May 30, 2011 (UTC

Time between boiler - No source needed?[edit source]

After exepriments with my clan for 3 days recording most if not all of the boiler breakage, it comes to an average that every 1 hour 10 minutes a boiler explodes.

I'm not sure if we can take this as an actual info, but it will be good to say it somewhere. 10:10, May 22, 2011 (UTC)

Gildered pickaxes, usable in f2p?[edit source]

I was wondering if u could use these gildered pickaxers in f2p - i see it's p2p only, but that's because it's only obtainable in p2p. but using it, i can't see that anywhere. does anyone know? Leon Art 08:20, June 8, 2011 (UTC)

Trick to get rid of bots[edit source]

Type : "The flow blockage has moved to a new segment." And the bots will automatically check! You can let them run back and forth, it's fun! 15:25, October 6, 2011 (UTC)

changed xp[edit source]

The listed xp values seem to be entirely incorrect; going for the correct segment seems to give 40-60 (average close to 50) xp per hit, rather than 100. 14:02, 14 August 2020 (UTC)
