Adamantite ore is a type of ore that can be obtained through the Mining skill in various places throughout RuneScape. It can be smelted with 6 heaps of coal through the Smithing skill to form an adamantite bar, which can then be smithed into various types of adamant weapons and armour.

Adamantite ore can be mined with a Mining level of 70 or higher, granting 95 Mining experience.

If a player is determined, he/she can use Dwarven Stout or Mature Dwarven stout to mine adamantite although that player will need quite a stock of these drinks because the effects of these drinks are temporary.

The Hobgoblin Mine contains the most free-to-play adamantite rocks, but it is far from a bank, filled with aggressive Hobgoblins, and dangerous since it is in the wilderness. However, with the "Canoe" update, the mine has become more convenient. The Lava Titan familiar, with a requirement of 83 summoning, allows players to teleport to the Lava maze, after which it only takes a few seconds to reach the mine. Hobgoblins will not keep you from mining, but you will still undergo attack from them. Revenants make this even harder because they can kill players who are unprepared or unlucky. The next best way to mine adamantite ore would be to go to one of the other mines and switch worlds as you mine the rocks.

The lowest level of the Abandoned Mine has 13 adamant ore veins, but requires retracing the steps of the Haunted Mine quest to get the glowing fungus. The fungus can be safely dropped while mining to free an inventory slot. The Jatizso Members mine is also a good place to mine as there are 11 rocks, however there are ice trolls to worry about, they are decently high levels and the males can hit 17, and the females can throw rocks over the rocks you are mining.

The Isafdar mine is only a decent Adamant mining spot once you have completed Roving Elves and started Mourning's Ends Part I since you will be able to bank at Lletya which is a small run away. The mine is small, only containing the 7 Adamant rocks and is completely unguarded except for a small trap at the entrance.

## Drops

Adamantite ore can be obtained from:

• Players can also choose to get adamant ores from some random events.

## Respawn rate

Adamantite ore, like all other mined rocks, respawns at a rate directly proportional to the number of people in the rock's RuneScape world. If the world is empty, the ore respawns in 8 minutes; if it is full (with 2000 players), it respawns in 4 minutes. Thus the respawn rate of adamantite ore is

$8-\frac{x}{500}$ minutes,

where x is the number of players in the world.

A table of respawn rates is given below.

Players 0 200 400 600 800 1000 1200 1400 1600 1800 2000
Respawn time 8:00 7:36 7:12 6:48 6:24 6:00 5:36 5:12 4:48 4:24 4:00

## Trivia

• Adamantite may be based on Adamantium, a metal from the Marvel comics, the metal covered the Marvel Hero Wolverine's originally bone-claws and skeleton.
• Adamantite is most likely derived from the word Adamant, which is defined as, "any impenetrably or unyieldingly hard substance".
• Adamantine has, throughout ancient history, referred to anything that was made of a very hard material. Virgil describes Tartarus as having a screeching gate protected by columns of solid adamantine.
• Adamant and similar words are used to refer to any especially hard substance, whether composed of diamond, some other gemstone, or some type of metal. Both adamant and diamond derive from the Greek word αδαμας (adamas), meaning "untameable". Adamantite and adamantium are also common variants.
