You can mine high level ores with 'lower' lvl pics to make a higher level pic.

I used Dragon to mine lvl70, then lvl 70 pic to mine lvl 90 ores to make lvl90 pic

Which I have been told can not be augmented but others seem to think it can?

Seems I might have to stick to syphoning my Dragon pic :(

You can only augment Dragon, Crystal, Imcando, and Earth & Song Pickaxes.

elder rune 5 is same as song and earth


With the only difference being you can't augment the Elder Rune pickaxe.

I already said I'm going to kill things because I don't want to buy any. What I really want is to not have to do combat at all to get skilling tools, and to be able to make skilling tools through skilling, not combat, but that's not an option, is it? You have to kill things to get a dragon pickaxe or buy them, you can't get them through skilling, and yes I find that irritating.

The RNG I was talking about was for the Motherlode maw or Triskelion keys, the chances of getting a dragon pickaxe from either of those is so low its not likely to happen, so you can't count it as a way to get a dragon pickaxe reliably.

I have literally never gotten a dragon pickaxe from any method other than buying one, but at least through combat there is a better chance of getting one than from Triskelion keys or the Motherlode maw, although its still pretty low odds.

With my RNG, if it takes 3 or 4 hours for the average person to get a dragon pick drop, I expect it will take me more like 12 to 24 hours, because that is just how my RNG has mostly been in this game. But whatever, I'll pick up the other drops and sell them to get one from the GE if I don't get one as a drop in a reasonable amount of time. I might not like the idea of buying one, but I will if it takes too long to get one as a drop, or to get six as drops since I will need that many for my three characters I want them for.

Wait a couple weeks to do the content and then buy a pick after prices crash. The fucking amount of entitlement from you is astonishing.


You didn't read a damn thing I wrote, obviously if you think there is "entitlement" from me.
