The Dragon pickaxe is currently the fastest pickaxe in Runescape. It's about .3 game ticks on average (0.6 seconds) faster than the Rune pickaxe and Inferno adze. 60 Attack and 61 Mining are required to wield the pickaxe. The Dragon pickaxe has a special attack called Shock which drains an opponent's Ranged, Magic, and Attack levels by 5% and uses 100% of the special attack bar. Due to Eoc update the special attack is now 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.
Dragon pickaxes were released with the quest Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf on the 9th of 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.

- 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.
