Bucket detail.png

A bucket is one of the most basic and common items available in RuneScape. They are regularly used for skills such as Crafting, Cooking, and Farming.

Buckets can contain any of the following items:

Players who try to make wine in a bucket (instead of a jug) will receive the message: "I'm not going to make wine in that dirty bucket!"

Obtaining buckets[edit | edit source]

Spawns[edit | edit source]

Players can find them as spawns in many locations throughout the game, including:

Other sources[edit | edit source]

Players can also obtain an unlimited amount of free buckets from their player-owned house, though these can only be obtained individually and thus is a very slow and repetitive process. This either requires 1) Tool store (2) (with level 35 Construction-icon.png), or 2) a Larder (level 9 Construction-icon.png). Option 1) will give a regular 'empty bucket', where option 2) gives a 'bucket of milk' that can be emptied.

Up to 39 buckets (of slime) a day can be obtained from Robin Hood when using the Morytania legs. Assuming the slime is used, these buckets, together with 39 pots, are a useful by-product.

Players who try to take the bucket from the respawn in Meiyerditch will receive the message: "I really do not want to go anywhere near that! It stinks!" Attempting to use Telekinetic Grab to take it will yield the message: "I really don't want to waste runes on grabbing this item."

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • You can store buckets, compost, supercompost and ultracompost in the farming store of any tool leprechaun. The most you can store is 255, the maximum number in one byte.
  • A bucket can hold 2 litres of water. This can be found by observing that filling a bucket of water increases your weight by 2kg.
  • The bucket is turned sideways when empty, this is to show that it is empty. When filled with something, it will revert back to what it previously looked like.
