Idol crablet

Idol crablets are a type of crablet found in the Arc. Despite being a creature, the crablet acts as a mining resource, allowing players to mine free the golden idol on its back; doing so requires level 98 Mining and grants 5,250 Mining experience. Rarely, one will spawn as an additional crablet in a group of six salty or alaea crablets on an Uncharted Isle. This can happen when returning to your claimed Uncharted Isle or logging in while on an island with a crablet colony.

Mining two golden idols from idol crablets is required to purchase the idol crabletine token from the Waiko Reward Shop, costing two golden idols, 2,500 chimes, and 3 Taijitu.

Note: Boosting mining levels will not allow a player to mine these crablets.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Idol crablets can be considered the rarest mining resource in the game due to their spawning mechanics.
  • Idol crablets currently have the highest Mining level requirements in RuneScape, apart from Dungeoneering skill doors.
  • Claiming an island with an Idol crablet on it will not respawn the crablet when you revisit your island as they spawn randomly with an alaea/Salty crablet colony, though they may spawn again eventually when revisited.
  • Mining an idol crablet prompts a timer above it like other crablets, and it remains even after the idol is taken.
