Christmas' Lava Flow Mine Guide

Post by Christmas on 8/10/2011, 11:38 pm

Lava Flow Mine



Requirements

  1. Completed King of the Dwarves
  2. A Pickaxe (Best that you can use/equipped)


Recommended Items

  • A Hammer for repairing the boilers
  • An Amulet of Glory, Ring of Wealth, and Gem Bag to increase the rate of finding uncut gemstones and to store them afterward
  • A Weapon and possibly some Armor to defeat randomly encountered Possessed Pickaxes (high lvls use cheep Armor)


Unofficial Worlds
  1. 71
  2. 83

How to get there

The Lava Flow Mine can only be accessed from Keldagrim, therefor the easiest way to get there is by taking the Mine Cart Transportation System. Personally I use the mine cart under the trapdoor to the north-west of the Grand Exchange since im always checking flips or selling something.



The Lava Flow Mine

Just within the entrance to the Mine, Foreman Jaak awaits adventurers looking to help. Talk to him, and he'll explain that particular segments of the lava channels which make up the power plant sometimes cool, causing for the lava to harden and form a crust; the crust creates a blockage which inhibits the flow of lava, and must be mined away for the plant to function properly.


  • There are 4 main lava channels (labelled A, B, C, and D on the map), and each channel is divided into 8 segments (labelled 1-8). Jaak can be spoken to in order to learn which channel is having lava flow problems, but he is unable to specify in which segment the problem is occurring. However, there are steam gauges attached to each segment, and by reading these, players can discover where to mine on their own. Speaking to Jaak for information is generally a waste of time, since it's faster simply to run around the mine and read the steam gauges.


NOTE

any segment can be mined, but the greatest experience is earned through mining segments closer to the source of the problem. The steam gauge attached to the segment with the blockage will have a reading of 50%, and so it is recommended to look for this. Segments far away from the blockage or in another channel entirely have readings of 100%, while nearby segments will have readings of 60, 70, 80, or 90%. When searching for the source, take notice of any reading other than 100%; once you've found such a segment, check the others in that same channel (the segments aligned to the north and south of your position), and you will find the blockage.

Steam Gauge Reading Mining XP Earned
100% 50
90% 60
80% 70
70% 80
60% 90
50% 100


Mining Distractions

While mining, you might want to keep an eye out for the following:

Distraction Description Reward
Boiler Breakage Lava crusts aren't the Mine's only problem! Whenever a boiler happens to overheat, repair it with your Smithing skill (level 70-90 randomly required) and a Hammer. There is a Hammer spawn at the entrance of the Mine. Smithing XP dependant on your Level
Finding Gems Uncut gemstones can be uncovered while mining away the lava crusts, as is the case with regular ores. Having a charged Amulet of Glory and Ring of Wealth equipped increases the likelihood of finding them. 1-2 Uncut Gems (Sapphires, Emeralds, Rubies, and Diamonds)
TzHaar Hero A TzHaar Hero chases after a Lava Monster in the Mine. Distract the monster by taunting it until the Hero manages to catch up, and he'll extend his gratitude for your help. Chances of finding Uncut Gems doubled for the next 10 minutes
Possessed Pickaxe A dwarven ancestor spirit possesses a nearby pickaxe, and will temporarily assist players with Mining if they can defeat him. 10% Mining XP bonus for the next 10 minutes
Liquid Gold Nymph This magical creature sometimes emerges from the lava in front of players, and offers gifts should they notice and speak with her. A piece of the Golden Mining Outfit OR a choice between 2.5k Mining XP or having a Pickaxe cosmetically gilded (if you've already completed the set)

Rewards

Each piece of the golden mining outfit gives you the following boost to any Mining XP you earn. The boost is cumulative for each piece of the outfit you wear (though the complete outfit actually gets you a 2.5% boost!):

Item Mining XP boost
Golden mining boots 0.2%
Golden mining gloves 0.2%
Golden mining helmet 0.4%
Golden mining trousers 0.6%
Golden mining top 0.8%



NOTES!


  1. The golden mining helmet can also be worn to enter the Arzinian gold mine (when being fired out of Dondakan's cannon).
  2. The Nymph will always give players the boots, gloves, helmet, trousers, and top - in that order.
  3. Players who own some Varrock armour (from completing Varrock Tasks) AND a complete golden mining outfit can wear either platebody, and get both the full 2.5% Mining XP boost (so long as they're wearing the rest of the golden mining outfit) as well as the chance of receiving extra ores (up to whatever ore your Varrock armour would normally allow you).
  4. Should a piece of the Golden mining outfit or a Gilded pickaxe be lost, players must continue mining at the Lava Flow Mine until the Nymph replaces the missing item(s).
  5. Once players have received the entire outfit, they can choose to gild a pickaxe that they're carrying with them every time they encounter the 'Liquid Gold Nymph' distraction thereafter. Only the standard pickaxes (Bronze, Iron, Steel, Mithril, Adamant, Rune, and Dragon) can be gilded, and it is only a cosmetic change; they gain no bonus or added effect. Pickaxes are untradeable while gilded, but the gilding can be removed by speaking to Foreman Jaak.



Thanks for reading
-Exiled

Good guide, worth a +rep if you can get me those xp rates Smile

Using one of the worlds helps a great deal (: or you can go to your own world with some friends it just makes it a little easier Razz and the current maximum experience is around 75k/hr at level 99 with a good team and a lava titan but the average xp that people get is around 50k so about the same as mining gold but you can get the mining outfit (which helps a lot when no life mining gold)

seems complicated.
is this method really afkable as in REALLY AFKABLE?
because with all these data it seems so hard, I feel as though granite would be easier haha.

I just want to know your honest opinion before I decide whether I'll complete the quest.
