Soft clay is used in the Crafting, Construction, and Magic skills to make pottery, furniture, tablets, and urns. Money can be made by buying clay and making soft clay for a profit of roughly 178 coins. The closest water source to a bank is the fountain in the Meilyr district in Prifddinas.

Soft clay can be created by using water on clay, awarding the player with 1 Crafting experience. This is done with a bucket of water or directly from a water source.

Players can also use Humidify from the Lunar Spells spellbook to turn an inventory of clay into soft clay at once (no Crafting experience will be awarded), Soft clay can also be made with using clay on a portable well. To create pottery, soft clay must be used on a potter's wheel and then fired in a pottery oven. The exceptions are clay rings and clay skulls, which are made directly in the inventory. In addition, clay skulls do not need to be fired in a pottery oven.

Clay can be quickly mined at the following locations:

  • The Soft clay mining site in Prifddinas after Plague's End.
  • The Crafting Guild: There is a sink in the Guild that can be used to quickly make soft clay. Using the sink with the clay will automatically turn an inventory of clay into soft clay. This can then be formed and fired using the pottery ovens in the guild. The urns can then be runed and banked at the deposit box located inside the guild (members-only) or the bank chest at the Clan Camp, east of the guild.
  • Mine at Rimmington Mine: There is a well to the south. Players can deposit in the Customs Locker (further south, needs Rocking Out quest). In the absence of the quest, teleport to a bank chest using a Clan Vexillum or Ring of Kinship.
  • Burthorpe's mine: There is a well just outside it, and players can bank near the Warrior Guild chest.

Gathering[edit | edit source]

Normally, mined clay must be converted to soft clay with water. However, with a bracelet of clay equipped, players can mine soft clay directly. The bracelet crumbles to dust after 28 soft clay are mined. Also, when mining clay, the bracelets affect the extra clay gained from Varrock armour, but these extra clay do not remove extra charges from the bracelet. This means one bracelet can actually be used to acquire more than 28 soft clay if the player has completed Varrock achievements.

Another method to directly mine soft clay is at the Ithell Clay mine in the Ithell Clan area in Prifddinas after completion of Plague's End. Players can also pickpocket soft clay from Ithell workers. Since the Ithell Clay mine already provides soft clay, the bracelet of clay gives an additional soft clay each time. This does remove charges from the bracelet. The Varrock armour works here as well, making it possible to mine four soft clay for only one charge.
