Steel ore box detail.png

The steel ore box is an ore box that can store 100, 120, or 140 each of every tier of ore ranging from copper to coal and silver. 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. After completing the Everything Is Oresome achievement the maximum capacity for each ore 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 to allow filling it without interrupting mining.

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. Placing an ore box into the bank also empties the box, placing all the ores stored within it into the bank.

Ore boxes share storage between them, so there is no use in owning multiple boxes. Having multiple in backpack at the same time prevents using the boxes.

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.
