Other sources[edit | edit source]

Players can 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). Tool store gives empty buckets, while larders give bucket of milk that can be emptied.

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 2 kg.
  • 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.
