Decorated mining urn detail.png

A decorated mining urn is an urn used with the Mining skill to help gain experience. It will collect ore slivers from rocks that require up to and including level 99 Mining.

It can be created at 78 Crafting by forming a decorated mining urn (unf) on a potter's wheel (granting 51 experience), requiring 2 soft clay to make. It must then be fired in a pottery oven creating a decorated mining urn (nr). The urn must then be activated with an earth rune to become a decorated mining urn (r) before it can be used. Players that do not have the required Crafting level to place the rune in the urn may use the assist system. The urn will become full when the player has earned 3,125 Mining experience with the urn in their inventory.

Once the decorated mining urn is full, it becomes a decorated mining urn (full) and can be teleported to Ernie for 625 Mining experience (781.25 with an urn enhancer). Once 10 full urns exist in a player's inventory or bank, they must be teleported before new urns can begin to be filled. Teleporting the urn does not add to the augmented mining tool experience.

Extra gems found while mining will not fill the urn, however mining gem rocks will. Mining sandstone and granite also fills up the urn. The juju mining potion's effects don't interrupt the urn's performance - the ore mined and immediately smelted by a stone spirit counts towards filling the urn.

Using a sacred clay pickaxe will not fill up the urn faster. A penance horn will not give double experience when teleporting urns. Mining a shooting star will fill the urn and mining crust at Lava Flow Mine will also. If mining multiple ores at once, using either Varrock armour or the reward effect of a shooting star, the urn only fills with experience from the first ore.

When a lower levelled mining urn is present in a player's inventory they will take priority over the decorated urn, meaning that any ores requiring lower than level 70 will fill a strong mining urn rather than the decorated. This lower tier priority also applies to cracked, fragile, and plain mining urns.

There is one challenge associated with the urns "Fire any urn in a pottery oven: 10" which is a crafting challenge.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

Steps to complete:

  1. Mine clay.
  2. Use the clay on a water source to make soft clay. (can be skipped if the clay was mined with a bracelet of clay)
  3. Use the soft clay on a potter's wheel. You may need to use the drop down menu in the top left of the window to select the urn category.
  4. Use the (unf) urns on a pottery oven to fire them.
  5. Add the earth rune to the urn.
