Necronium ore box detail.png

The necronium ore box is an ore box that can store 100, 120, or 140 each of every tier of ore ranging from copper to necrite and phasmatite. The initial capacity of 100 is increased to 120 as the player's Mining level increases. The capacity increase varies per ore based on the level required to mine it, as shown on the table below. Depositing gold and silver will be available after the members-only Family Crest quest. After completing the Everything Is Oresome achievement the maximum capacity for each ore except gold and silver is increased by a further 20, up to a maximum of 140.

Mechanics[edit | edit source]

The ore box's left-click option, "fill", fills the box with all ores in the player's inventory. Ores (including noted ores) can also be individually used on the box to fill it with all ore of that type. A mouse-over tooltip is displayed showing the contents of the ore box sorted from the lowest to the highest tier. The ore box can be added to the action bar, allowing the player to fill the box with a keybind.

The ore box cannot be emptied into a player's inventory. Once filled it can only be emptied into a bank, deposit box or metal bank. The "Deposit-All" option in the metal bank empties the ore box as well as having an "empty" option that works in the bank interface. With deposit boxes, the ore box must be used on it to deposit the contents without banking the ore box, as the empty option does not exist in the deposit box interface, but this does allow the player to return to mining. Simply placing an ore box into the bank also empties the box, placing all the ores stored within it into the bank. If there isn't enough space in the bank, the ore(s) will stay in the box while banked.

Ore boxes share storage between them, so there is no use in owning multiple boxes. The player cannot fill the ore box while carrying more than one of them in their inventory. Attempting to fill the ore box whilst carrying several of them simply results in the player character exclaiming "I can't hold all these ore boxes!", with no ore being added to the box.

The metal bank can be viewed via the "View metal bank" option, but no items may be deposited or withdrawn from it.

A temporary boost in Mining level can increase the capacity temporarily.

Dying in the Wilderness with an ore box of any tier, if unprotected, will result in the box and all ores contained within dropping on the ground for the killer. If the player protects their ore box, any ores contained within the ore box will be dropped on the ground for the killer; however, the ore box will be kept.

If the inventory is filled by mining while carrying the ore box, the game displays a message that the player could fill the box, even if the material mined cannot be stored there (such as when the box is already full).
