Just some food for thought.

The pickaxe has the same stats as an elder rune pickaxe +5 and considering how much goes into creating one, it should have additional benefits, such as a chance of spawning crystal implings, auto-smelting and banking the bars and ability to teleport around the mining sites.

It can also be combined with other pickaxes such as Inferno adze and Dwarven army axe for more benefits.

Augmenting is just not enough for the materials, quests and money that go into making it.


Up to 10 % higher chance to get double ores? Up to 6 % more chance for geodes - which more than doubles your base chance? Or whatever perks you may use based on your preferences? Or a chunk of invention experience every once in a while? That is quite some advantage over a plain elder rune pick.

Invention exp is great, I cannot contest that.

However, the completion of the master quests such as While Guthix Sleeps, Plague's End and Birthright of the Dwarves as well as all the other quests required to get to those three should give more benefits than double ores which are also given by the bottled stone spirits and the geodes since the ones of real value are metamorphic and unfortunately they are very rare.

While I would have no problem with being able to unlock some extra abilities for it, being able to augment it is more than enough of a reason to use it over the elder rune pick in my eyes.

The double ore thing is able to stack - so you're not just getting them more often, it can even become triple ores then.

As for geodes. Your base chance is 5 %, 1 % of all igneous ones are metamorphic - so 0.5 % per swing, with a 6 % trait it becomes 1.1 % or with a t4 luck even 3.3 % (since it increases your chance to gain a metamorphic by .5 percentage points per geode for each luck tier). That isn't that weak.
