Salty crabletine

Salty crabletines are young crablets, and despite being a creature, the crystal deposit on their back acts as a mining resource. Mining the deposit requires level 90 Mining, and yields sea salt; an ingredient required in making arc gumbo. Ten salty crabletines can be found on the north-west shore of Cyclosis and seven can be found on eastern Aminishi.

When clicking on a crablet to mine, they will become stationary. Salty crabletines may be mined randomly between 4-5.5 minutes before exhausting the salt crystals on their back. Each crablet has a unique timer, which does not stop even if the player stops mining a crablet, or begins to mine another. The following message is shown when their salt crystals have depleted: "The salt crystals on the nearby crablet have disappeared."

Experience rates[edit | edit source]

Mining salty crabletines gives approximately 78,000 Mining experience and 705 chimes an hour at level 99 Mining. Using a golden mining suit, magic golem outfit and a pickaxe with the Honed 5 and Furnace 3 perks gives around 108,000 experience and 867 chimes an hour.

Boosts[edit | edit source]

Mining boosts such as the Quarrymaster aura, Golem outfits, and Invention Perks do affect the number of salts mined from the crablet; the effects of the Perfect juju mining potion and normal Juju mining potion will not activate from mining the crablet however.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 1 July 2019 (Update):.
    • The Mining skillcape perk will no longer affect Arc crablets.
  • patch 18 February 2019 (Update):
    • Mining crablets no longer depletes stamina, so they can be mined AFK as before. Their hitpoints have been lowered so that a crablet is typically mined in a little under 5 minutes. The XP from mining crablets has been reduced to compensate.
  • patch 5 September 2016 (Update):
    • The golem outfit and quarrymaster aura now work correctly work with crablets.
