A dragon pickaxe is a Mining tool and basic melee weapon, which requires level-60 Attack to wield and level-61 Mining to use for mining rocks. It was released with the Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf quest on 9th September 2009. Dragon pickaxes are a very rare drop from chaos dwogres, chaos dwarf hand cannoneers and the chaos dwarves on the Chaos Dwarf Battlefield.
It is currently the second-fastest pickaxe in the game (except for the imcando pickaxe, which is faster only in the Lava Flow Mine). It is about 0.3 game ticks on average (0.6 seconds) faster than the rune pickaxe and inferno adze.
A dragon pickaxe can be added to a player's Tool Belt, provided a higher-level pickaxe is not already stored there. Once the pickaxe has been added to the belt it cannot be removed.
After a player receives the full golden mining suit, the dragon pickaxe can be gilded by the liquid gold nymph in the Lava Flow Mine to become the gilded dragon pickaxe. A gilded dragon pickaxe gives no bonuses and is purely cosmetic.
After completing Plague's End, Lady Ithell will upgrade a dragon pickaxe to a crystal pickaxe for 4,000 harmonic dust. Lady Ithell can upgrade a pickaxe in the player's inventory or Tool Belt. Note that a gilded pickaxe will lose its gilding when upgraded.
- An earlier concept of a dragon pickaxe was first seen on the RuneScape highscores in 2006 more than 3 years before its actual release. At RuneFest 2011 members of the QA team mentioned that the problem with this version was that it looked too much like an umbrella from certain angles.
