Introducing The Mining Skill




Mining is a very useful, but tedious skill. It allows you to extract ores, pure essence, gems, and other auxiliary resources from rocks located in mines throughout lunaris the main one being the Dwarven Mine. Extracted ores can be smelted into bars and then utilizing the Smithing skill, can be habituated to create weapons, armour and other auxiliary items.


A player gains Mining experience by extracting these ores from their rocks, and as a player's Mining level increases, this allows them to wield better pickaxes, and mine increasingly arduous ores (such as adamantite and runite) that sell for sizably voluminous amounts of coins in the Trading Post. This makes Mining a great money-making skill for those who have the patience and assiduousness to reach those higher levels.







A pickaxe is critical for Mining, because without it you can't mine! Depending on the player's Mining level, this affects the type of pickaxe they can mine with, with the higher leveled pickaxes being more efficacious at Mining, as well as a weapon in their own right. Pickaxes can be bought from Bob, who is located at ::Shops/Edgeville General Store. The highest tiered pickaxe - dragon, is not in Bob's Store, however, it can be bought from other players and from the Trading Post, inside Edgeville bank.

Mining Sites




There are plenty of mines located throughout Lunaris, with certain ones being preferred over others due to certain factors, such as the ores available and the mine's distance from a bank. Here are the best Mining sites:


The Drawven Mine (Falador Mine)


Low levelled rocks, such as copper, clay and tin rocks are all located south of the main entrance.


The higher level rocks, such as coal, gold, mithril, and adamantite rocks are near the Mining Guild. 2 gold rocks are located to the East of the Mining Guild. 5 coal rocks may be found there also. A bit to the North-West, there are 3 adamantite rocks, 2 mithril rocks, 3 iron rocks, and 3 coal rocks. To the East, there is the Falador entrance. Further North, there are iron, tin, copper and 3 coal rocks.


The very South of The Dwarven Mine is the Mining Guild. You can find 2 runite rocks if you turn East soon as entering the Mining Guild. There is also a bank chest on the far West.
