How to create RuneScape elder rune pickaxe?

To make a level 90 elder rune pickaxe, you can use RuneScape elder rune bar which is the bar of new level 90 metal. The elder rune bar can be refined by combining 1 light animica ore, 1 dark animica ore and 1 rune bar in a furnace, requiring 90 Smithing.
If you don’t own any elder rune bar, you can also get an augmentable elder rune pickaxe by combining a crystal pickaxe, imcando pickaxe and a blast fusion hammer. It is recommended to upgrade before trying the level 90 rocks if you are using a crystal pick or dragon pick.
