  • Bonus XP Mining Set: You have two options here. You can obtain the set from the lava flow mine at level 65 with the "King of Dwarves" quest requirement or start collecting Gemstone Golem fragments at level 70. At level 80, you can create it with 20 fragments. The Golem outfit not only provides an XP boost but also allows you to mine in living rock caverns without being attacked.
  • Pickaxe: Always use the best pickaxe you can afford. Consider an augmented pickaxe if your Mining level is between 70 and 80. Bane or necromium pickaxes are also good options, although dragon and the elder rune variants are worthwhile, too, especially when augmented. Keep in mind that better pickaxes yield more XP and higher hourly profits.
  • Porters: Use Porters to deposit ores into the bank. The Premier Artifact, if you have access to it, is a fantastic item to have, providing 50 free Sign of the Porter charges per hour.
  • Perfect Juju Mining Potion: This potion has a 10% chance to act as a porter, making it an excellent choice for an additional profit boost.
  • Bracelet of Clay: This is essential for a specific money-making method we'll cover later in the guide.
  • Stone Spirits: Use these to enhance your mining experience. While some are more beneficial than others, the choice depends on your preference and the specific mining spot.


If you've completed solid skilling endgame content, you can also use the enhancer for a 20% XP bonus. Now, let's delve into the various mining methods that can help you earn big in RuneScape.
