-Superheat mining guide-


As requested by Kirf, here is a guide on how to superheat gold ores while mining.
This is one of the best methods in the game to train mining, while getting mining experience you will also gain both smithing and magic experience.
The location used for this is the Living rock Caverns. Located in the Dwarven mine. The Lrc worlds are world 77, 84 and 88.

Xp rates.
(xp/per hour is based on my results, with clan avatar + Golden mining suit xp rates are even higher)
- Mining: ~85k
- Smithing: ~71k
- Magic: ~67k
- Total: ~220k

Requirements.
- 80 Mining.
- 40 Smithing.
- 43 Magic.
- The quest Family Crest has to be completed.

Items needed.
Spoiler:
 
Fire/lavastaff: Unlimited supply of fire runes. A must if you are superheating.
Goldsmithing gauntlets: Boosts the smithing xp on a gold bar from 22.5 to 56.2.
Golden mining suit: Gives a 4% bonus to your mining xp. Yes, 4% and not 5%. Since you will need the goldsmithing gauntlets and can therefore not use the full set of the armour. Note: I don’t have the Golden mining suit, so I am using a Varrock body.



Inventory

Spoiler:
 

Nature runes: You need these for the superheat spell.
Pickaxe: Yeah, you don’t want to use your toolbelt pickaxe.
Mining urns: Gives bonus mining xp.
Summoning familiars: Lava titans or Obsidian golems gives mining boosts. Use them for faster mining xp.

Setting up your spellbook.
Make sure your spellbook is set up like this. Only show skill spells and combat first. This will make superheating easier.

How to mine.
Kinda hard to explain, so I recorded this yesterday. Not a very good video, it was my first time mining since January this year. I might make another one if it is needed. Whenever you get a new ore, you superheat it + drop the bar in your inventory. Watch in 720p, otherwise quality is terrible.
Spoiler:
 


Tips.
- Maxzoom could possibly make it easier when you are mining.
- Clan avatars would be a better than Lava titans, if you are one of those kewl Captains. Wink
- Low alching in lrc is around 90-92k mining xp/hour and 42k magic xp/hour. That’s a total of 134k xp/h. 86k less than superheating.

Good luck mining.
Barca.

why no juju? that immediately puts low alching 90k-100k depending on luck. 105k-110k 95+ and 110k-120k with greater quarrymaster.

I've never done superheating so can't tell for that.

also, I've found titan to be better than avatar. Avatar gave me about 95k-100k~ while titan gave me 105k-110k~. May just be me but iunno.

Is the xp/h really improved that much with juju? should only save you a few ticks?
And didnt include Quarrymaster, I dont have it and I also thought no one used it lol Razz

Oh, i just guessed that a 6% xp bouns would be better lol. I have no personal experience with avatars at all since they were not released when i got 99 mining.

with that much room, yeah. you drop bars several times and you can get 1-3 ores per 2 ticks. it just adds up.

EDIT: unless you're just a master at the tick system and click back asap

I guess xp rates for superheat is probably even higher. The xp/h was based on a few trips i did earlier dis week. First time mining in ages so yeah, 3123123 missclicks.
I was a pr0 a while back, could do this while i watched movies. lol tongue

Almost made me go to lrc. But the planks ain't gonnamake themselves Smile

And yea i'm only 90 mining, but noticed that its better to have lava titan (and possibly 3% boost fromsomeonefishing in thatworld) than 6% mining. So no, al those "kewl captains" probably aren't gonna use it there for mining.

OK, like I just said. Planks ain't gonna make themselves so SI JA!
