Star sprites are beings that live within a Shooting Star, a Distraction and Diversion. Star sprites appear once the star has been completely mined to the core. Star sprites are willing to exchange Stardust, which are obtained while mining the star, in exchange for Mining experience and rewards, such as runes, ores and coins. However, it is recommended that up to 200 stardust is collected before exchanging, as this is the limit for the rewards granted per day. A day is defined as the 24 hour period beginning at 00:00 (UTC).
In addition to item rewards, a player is also granted the ability to mine an additional ore (25% chance) for 15 minutes for any ore up to runite. This ability stacks with the Varrock armour, meaning players can mine up to three ores from a single rock or four ore at once from concentrated rocks.
Star sprites disappear ten minutes after the star has been completely mined.
