Alright so right here I’ve written a guide for you Runescape players who need a little bit of extra help and/or tips on what to do in order to get 99 mining in Runescape. Now one thing I have to say now is that if you have the money it would be wise to buy all the pickaxes before you start mining as that way you don’t have to stop in between sections to buy pickaxes if not just buy the pickaxes you need for each section as you should make enough money to buy the ones for the next section.
Alright now for this part of the guide you have two options as far as pickaxes go and those are the bronze or the iron. Now I suggest you get the iron pickaxe as it mines a little faster than the bronze pickaxe and you will get all the money back from this section of the guide to pay for your iron pickaxe. Now for this part of the guide unless you plan on smithing all the ores you mine (that’s the next guide I’m going to make) I suggest you mine only copper as if gives the same xp as tin and also sells for about 50gp more than tin. Now you should mine copper ore from one of the mines that surround the varrock area either one will do. I suggest you buy a steel pickaxe at 6 mining.
Congratulations you can now mine iron. Now for this section of the guide I suggest you get a mithril pickaxe to start and then start mining iron and chugging slowly but steadily to 35 mining. Now to mine iron you can either go to the dwarven mine (which I suggest) or you can stay at the mines that surround varrock. I suggest you buy an adamant pickaxe at 31 mining.
Levels 35-60 or 35-99
Congratulations you can now mine coal. For these levels I suggest you buy an adamant pickaxe if you haven’t already bought one. For this part of the guide I suggest you mine the ore at the dwarven mine if you want to bank the ores or you mine the ores at rimmington if you want to power mine. I suggest you buy a rune pickaxe when you reach 41mining. Now you could also power mine iron all the way to 99 mining as it is the fastest xp/hour ore in the game.
Congratulations you can now mine mithril and you can also enter the mining guild. For these levels I suggest you mine mithril ore in the edgeville dungeon if you want to power mine and mining mithril ore in the Mining guild if you want to bank. Now as the mithril ores spawn slow I suggest you mine coal as you wait for the mithril ores to spawn as you can wait up to five minutes for the mithril ore to spawn.
Congratulations you can now mine adamant. Now this may take a long time but I suggest you mine coal and not adamant as adamant has no place where you can bank easily and it takes ages to spawn.
Congratulations you can now mine runite ore. Now for this section I again say mine coal as runite for the entire game as 3 rocks and it takes about 12minutes for 1 runite or to spawn and I don’t think you would make much progress that way.
Now for a little reference “Power Mining” is mining the ore and just dropping it once it’s mined.
