Duplicate[edit source]

Woops, didn't see that there was already an article on this (Essence mines). I was searching for this article under various names and didn't come across anything, so I went ahead and created this one thinking that there was simply not an article for it yet - Sorry for any confusion.

Move[edit source]

In RuneScape, this is called the Rune Essence (not rune essence). Should this be moved? White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 01:05, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Where does it say that in game? O_o Swordmagic24 01:18, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Well... If it is to be moved, I think it would better be like "Rune Essence (mine)", if you insist.
But Jagex called that Rune Essence Mine. See http://www.runescape.com/kbase/viewarticle.ws?article_id=1866.
So far, all I can conclude from all the evidences is that:
The four rocks are called "Rune Essence" , but the area which holds the four rocks is called "Rune Essence Mine".
The upper part of your pic is the player who is asking to be teleported near the ROCK. The lower part of your pic is the player who hovers his mouse on the ROCK.
So, Is there still a need to move? XDRAGONAITE +Saradomin's Book of Wisdom.png 01:57, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Look at the hint for unlocking the mine's music (its lowercased there). Also, that kbase article says "Rune essence can only be mined from one location – the rune essence mine. " , "All of the NPCs above teleport you to the same rune essence mine, but only if you have completed the Rune Mysteries quest. ", and "As soon as you are teleported to the rune essence mine, head to a pillar of gray stone with magic swirling around it. Use a pickaxe on the rune essence and mine until your inventory is full.". Swordmagic24 02:02, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Okay, since Jagex defines it as the Rune Essence Mine, that's how we should spell it. Rune Essence should redirect to rune essence, with a disamiguation link to Rune Essence Mine. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 12:54, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
Didn't I say that they also use lowercase spelling? Swordmagic24 18:24, 9 July 2008 (UTC)
If they do, they don't often. Jagex doesn't usually keep small things like captitalization and spacing the same. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 19:28, 9 July 2008 (UTC)

Maybe this should be moved to Rune Essence (mine). White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 00:54, 12 January 2009 (UTC)

How about we have a forum about it? Forum's usually settle things...

New bank deposit in RC Guild[edit source]

This page is in need to update as a bank deposit box has appeared in RC Guild due to recent update...perhap Sedorier should be now fastest for ppl with 50 runecraft as he is in the basement of the tower... Thanks...--Drixomanbeta 17:22, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

I took the liberty to edit this article for the new Bank Deposit in RC Guild...The route of Aubury is still faster by 5 seconds, possibly from experimental error and other lag, but for the time being if you're REALLY concerned about time and efficiency then Aubury still is the fastest for mining ess.--Drixomanbeta 18:51, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Explorer's ring[edit source]

I used to log in daily, mine some essence, and use my daily low alchemy charges from my Explorer's ring. However, some time last week there was an update that disable the use of alchemy charges inside the mine. I'm not sure exactly when this happened, or if it affects other spells. Just a heads up for anyone willing to do more research and possibly add it to the article. Zeldafanjtl (talk | contribs) 04:23, April 6, 2011 (UTC)

Music Track Unlock[edit source]

I came to this page looking for the music track unlocked in here, shouldn't this be added to the page?

Multiple locations[edit source]

I'm supprised that no one else has ever noticed that there are (or at least were; I haven't rechecked since 2011) multiple rune essence mines (at least 4).

This can be easily checked by having a group of people/friends, and flushing the portals, keeping one person at the centre each time a new one is discovered, so that you can tell whether it is a new one or not (using vexilla and other markers can also work, but be carefull that you don't remove them or take longer than the timer for marker plants).

They were there before the Great Orb Project update (24/08/08), which was what first caught attention, as there appeared to be no reason for more than one; however, GOP needing multiple 'altar plans' allows for this (though it must have been planned for at least a couple of Years before it was introduced, as there were multiple mines in 06).

You could also find this out by the way they are different shapes and portal positions (relative to directional orientation) in the different mines.

This is all trivial, but interesting, none the less. 86.146.216.90 15:02, December 11, 2013 (UTC)

Inconsistent Location[edit source]

I'm reading 2 very different locations for the same mine. The common mine, everyone teleports to to mine is both far north of the wilderness/lunar sea and somehow also in the ice mountains east of Rellekka... Rsshadow (talk) 20:41, October 17, 2014 (UTC)

It's definitely the former. Whoever says the mine is in the Troll Country is quite wrong... User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 07:09, October 18, 2014 (UTC)
