Salty crabletines are young salty crablets and despite being creatures, the crystal deposits on their backs serve as high level mining resources. Mining the deposits requires level 90 Mining and yields sea salt, an ingredient required in making arc gumbo. The salt may also be sold for 4 chimes each to Yi Yan, at the Salty Goods shop in the Waiko market. Ten salty crabletines can be found on the north-western shore of Cyclosis and seven can be found on North-Eastern Aminishi.

When mining a salty crabletine, it is "relaxed" and becomes stationary. Unlike the salty crablets found on Uncharted Isles, these young crablets do not deplete their supply of salt deposits, and allow for complete afk training, having to click only to prevent lobbying.

Experience rates[edit | edit source]

The player has a chance to harvest salt from the crabletine's back on average every four swings (less with critical swings). With level 99 Mining, salty crabletines give approximately 90,000 mining experience and 370 sea salt an hour. Utilizing some boosts (see below), experience rates hover around 105,000 experience and well over 420 sea salt can be obtained per hour.

    • 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.
