Starlight ore detail

Starlight ore is an ore obtained through Mining and Treasure Hunter, available from 10 September 2015 to 15 September 2015. It was previously available on the Squeal of Fortune from 26 April 2013 to 6 May 2013. It appeared in quantities of 906–1100 ores as a "common" reward in the Squeal of Fortune that has a set coin convert value of 500 regardless of the amount. They also appeared rarely while mining in batches of 61–100 during the second appearance. Players had a chance of receiving ore while mining at approximately ten minute intervals while logged in, not all of which had to be spent mining.

It is a component for forging starfire equipment. To forge a starfire weapon 10,000 starlight ores and blueprints for a starfire sword, bow, or staff were required. Starfire equipment is needed to create starfury equipment, alongside starborn diamonds. The player is able to speak to Ivar of the Artisan's Workshop to find out more about creating starfire and starfury weaponry.

Starlight ore can be obtained from mining any ore, with higher level ores producing larger amounts. The amount of starlight ore received while mining ranged from 20 - 100. Starlight ore can also be received when mining in the Lava Flow Mine. The most efficient way to collect the ore was by accessing the Living Rock Caverns and mining concentrated gold rocks, where decent amounts could be found within a short period of time.

Players are able to exchange starlight ore for Mining or Smithing experience through Ivar only during the promotion. Each ore yields varied experience depending upon the player's Mining or Smithing level. In 2013, if a player's Smithing level was 80+, a total of 5 experience was received per ore. There is a limit of 10,000 to the amount of ore which can be exchanged per day to Ivar (lowered from 20,000 in 2013).

Starlight ore was originally unobtainable after 6 May 2013, and disappeared from players' banks on 20 May 2013, after a 1 week notice warning the players. It was removed on 28 September 2015.
