Urn (Shifting Tombs)

Urns, Vases, and Vessels are located in Shifting Tombs. Within the tomb, they can be smashed to cleanse corruption, one of the three main objectives within the minigame that must be completed before the time limit of 5 minutes is reached.

Objectives[edit | edit source]

There are two ways to cleanse corruption and work towards the corruption objective, namely breaking urns and mining crystalline corruption. Breaking urns can be done at a distance as long as the urn is considered within visible range of the player and is done near instantaneously, while mining crystalline corruption takes time and is done like any other ore. Smashing urns will also yield a varying amount of coins, although the maximum gained is around 1,500 from each one.

However, if players break 5 urns in quick succession, players gain a buff Shifting Tombs urns status icon.png that will allow them to break crystalline corruption quicker than they normally would by aiming a long blast in a line in front of them, which will cut down a row of crystals terminating in an AoE blast. The player can carry up to a maximum of 3 stacks of this buff by breaking more urns, but if they idle for longer than 21 seconds without breaking an urn, all of the stacks will be lost.

Smashing urns can cause the Menaphos cat Bestopet to appear, provided the player has the Menaphos journal.
