Can anyone confirm if power/str boosting equipment helps with mining now? or just your actual lvl in str to hit rocks harder? my skillers could invest in some jewellery and i'm wondering if it would help or not.

Many thanks

Hi hipky.

The official Runescape Wiki is a mine of useful information (sorry!).

Here's the section on mining boosts:

thanks for that, but it doesn't quite answer if it's worth wearing other str gear like bandos to increase damage dealt to rocks?
some items on there could be useful to a skiller though. didn't know about glory ammy or scrimshaws

Earlier on that page it is said that the Strength level is used, which can be boosted. Both visible and invisible boosts apply. Unfortunately, power armour isn't listed as a Strength boost.

Power armour boosts your weapon damage instead, which isn't your Strength level, so I think wearing bandos armour when Mining will have no effect.

From what I understand, the strength factor is more-or-less negligible in the grand scheme of things, so it's probably just best to wear gear that directly benefits mining like the golem outfits, golden mining suit, Grace of the Elves and LOTD for Seren Spirits, and the like.

that's the conclusion i've come to; however, rocks have hitpoints and i just wondered if increasing damage of any kind helped? probably not.


The hitpoints of a rock are not the hitpoints of a monster, so it's logical that it doesn't help.
