Talk:Jacob's Pickaxe

Does anyone know if it's possible to stack Jacobs Pickaxe and Mining Gloves for a total of 115 mining? (I'd jump on TC and test it myself but I'm at work :)

I don't own one myself (missed the bit about +10 and so wrote it off as useless), but a quick google suggests that it will not take you above 100 in the way that the gloves do.

This suggests that you could take your skill to 90, then use the pick in addition to the gloves to hit the current maximum of 105. However, one forum poster complains that equipping the pick took his already glove-modified skill of 102.5 back down to 100!

If this is the case, then the pick could only be considered a useful item up until you hit a real skill of 95. From then on it only serves as a handicap.
