This is a bit nitpicky about the lore, but I came to the discovery that the Earth and Song pickaxe can be created on any kind of anvil. Whereas being triggered about this is an exaggeration, I do want to raise a point that this creates two glaring contradictions in the lore.

First of, the Blast Fusion hammer. The Blast Fusion hammer is one of the three "ingredients" used to make the Earth & Song pickaxe. It is the pinacle tool of Imcandan metalurgy and in no way would be able to draw its full potential from mere human-made anvils. In the game, its only special place is the Dragon Forge, a forge that (nearly) matches the sophisticated skill that the Imcandan metalurgy matched before they went instinct.

Secondly, each of the two pickaxes (the crystal pickaxe and the imcando pickaxe) has DRAGON metal as its core material. There are only TWO places in the entire world of Gielinor that are capable of manipulating this complex material; the Sacred Forge, deep below Ice Mountain, or the Dragon Forge, in the mithril dragon lair. It makes completely no sense for traditional human stations to suddenly even further manipulate Dragon material.

Jagex, please change the final 'station' to create the Earth & Song pickaxe to the Dragon Forge. For the people that create this pickaxe, the While Guthix Sleeps step is neglectible (because people already passed that one in order to get Bane equipment, which is a 'physical' tier below Earth & Song)

Support - not only this but I thought Orikalkum was the formal name for Dragon armoury & weaponry.. so it'd make sense if it was specific to the dragon forge also with the Blast Fusion Hammer wouldn't it?

Lorewise, Orikalkum is the more plain metal version.
Dragon armor is layered with dragonkin magics and enchantments.
