Mining Luminite is a vital part of playing Runescape for Free-to-Play players and Ironmen. The Luminite Ore is half of the required resources to create Adamant (T40) and Runite (T50) bars. There are several locations where you can mine Luminite Ore, each with its own restrictions and benefits.
The place to mine Luminite in Free-to-Play
The primary location to mine Luminite Ore in Free-to-Play is in the Mining Guild. Within the Mining Guild, and the nearby Dwarven Mine, players can access a total of eight Luminite rocks. The Luminite Rocks within the Mining Guild require 60 Mining, and 45 Dungeoneering, as they are found within the Mining Guild Resource area. However, if a free-to-play player has these requirements, the rocks are closer together and closer to the Falador East bank, allowing for a higher experience and profit rate.
Another downside of utilizing the Falador Dwarven Mine to mine Luminite is the nearby King Scorpion spawn, which is aggressive to players under combat level 79.
Mining at the Keldagrim Dwarven Mine
One of the overall best places to mine Luminite Ore is at the Keldagrim Dwarven Mine. The Mine is in the North of the Keldagrim city and has 19 different Luminite Rocks to pick from. In addition, the Keldagrim Dwarven Mine is quite close to a bank on the west side of the city. However, there are several massive requirements for mining here.
Accessing the mine requires completion of the Forgiveness of a Chaos Dwarf quest, which has several pre-quests and high skill requirements. At least level 10 Fishing, 61 Hunter, 61 Firemaking, 69 Strength, 30 Defence, 40 Mining, and 50 Smithing, 12 Crafting, 14 Thieving, and 33 Magic are the lowest possible requirements. These requirements lock out many players, besides late-game Ironmen, from utilizing the mine.
My favorite spot to mine Luminite Ore
One of the most underutilized mines is the Ourania Battlefield Mine. The mine, located southeast of Ardougne, and just north of the Observatory, includes five Luminite rocks. The rocks are close enough together not to be an issue, and accessing a bank is simple through using the Castle Wars teleport on the Ring of Duelling. Despite the easy access to a Bank, you should still utilize an Adamant or above Ore Box to extend your trip.
