Tool leprechauns are non-player characters found wandering near Farming patches around Gielinor. They provide three basic functions: storing Farming tools, exchanging harvested items into banknotes, and teleporting players to the Vinesweeper minigame. They are replaced by tool elves in Isafdar and Prifddinas.

A tool leprechaun may occasionally appear at Manor Farm, asking for help with an easy Farming Guild request.

Storing[edit | edit source]

Equipment held by tool leprechauns

Leprechauns will store many of the tools that players use for Farming, but they will not store seeds or crops. The tools stored are available to all the leprechauns. Leprechaun Larry (found on Troll Stronghold) sells an assortment of farming-related items.

The items that can be stored and retrieved from tool leprechauns are:

Features[edit | edit source]

A feature of the tool leprechaun is that they will swap harvested crops for banknotes if the player uses the item on it, or uses the right-click option, this includes clean herbs. The one exception to this is the leprechaun at South Falador allotment, who will refuse to exchange cabbages, claiming that the whole farm stinks of them. Leprechauns will not note nightshades, or logs.

Leprechauns can also automatically add compost, supercompost, or ultracompost as soon as a patch is cleared. Payment must be done before a patch is cleared, or else the leprechaun will not auto add compost. This costs 500 coins per compost, 1,500 coins per supercompost, and 2,500 coins per ultracompost. Up to 60,000 can be queued for auto adding. For this to work, the leprechaun must have compost, supercompost or ultracompost stored, and the player will be notified when the last one has been used. The bucket containing the compost will be consumed in the process.

All leprechauns, except for those on Harmony Island and Leprechaun Larry, can also teleport players to the Vinesweeper minigame. To do this, players must talk to the leprechaun and select "Winkin's Farm". The leprechaun will then say "Avach nimporto!", and the player will arrive at the minigame. There is a portal north-east of the farmhouse to return to the patch.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Audio options icon.png
A cheerful Tool leprechaun!

  • When the player attempts to exchange a non-notable item or a non-farming related item (such as raw lobsters for example) the leprechaun will say, "Nay, I've got no banknotes to exchange for that item." If it cannot be a note, the leprechaun will say, "Nay, I can't turn that into a banknote." If the player attempts to exchange a banknote, the leprechaun will exclaim, "That IS a banknote!"
  • While ashes can be considered a non-farming related item, the result from harvesting White lily produces ashes, so the leprechauns will note them.
  • The leprechaun by the Draynor Village allotment will not note cabbages. If the player attempts to exchange a cabbage for a note, the leprechaun will say, "A cabbage? Don't ye go showing me yer cabbage; this whole farm stinks of the things! Take it away and get it exchanged somewhere else." This does not affect cannonball cabbages, as the leprechaun will note those normally.
  • While doing the Lost City Quest talking to a tool leprechaun will result in them mentioning someone knocking Shamus out of his tree.
  • At least one of the unnamed leprechauns is named Patrick as revealed in Postbag from the Hedge 38.
  • If a system update occurs while cutting an evil tree the rewards can be claimed from a tool leprechaun because the evil tree will be gone.
  • Sometime during March/April 2012, the Leprechauns in the Falador Park and Rimmington areas had their magic wands updated to have colourful particle effects instead of a trail of rainbows.
  • Tool leprechauns appear to have a symbol on their chest when bloom is turned on.
