Bucket detail

A Bucket is one of the most basic and common items available in RuneScape. They are regularly used for skills such as Crafting, Cooking, and Farming.

Players may purchase a bucket from most general stores and farming shops for 2 coins. An unlimited number can be obtained from a tool store 2 in the workshop of a player-owned house. You can also find one in the basement of Lumbridge Castle's kitchen. 

Buckets can contain any of the following items:

Players who try to make wine in a bucket (instead of a jug) will receive the message: "I'm not going to make wine in that dirty bucket!"

Obtaining bucketsEdit

Dropping monstersEdit

Players can find them as spawns in many locations throughout the game, including:

Other sourcesEdit

It's also worth noting that players can also obtain an unlimited free amount of buckets from their player-owned house, though these can only be obtained individually and thus is a very slow and repetitive process. This either requires 1) Tool store (2) (with level 35 Construction-icon), or 2) a Larder (level 9 Construction-icon). Option 1) will give a regular 'Empty bucket', where option 2) gives a 'Bucket of milk' that can be emptied.

Up to 39 buckets (of slime) a day can be obtained form Robin Hood when using the Morytania legs. Assuming the slime is used, these buckets, together with 39 pots, are a useful by-product.

Players who try to take the bucket from the respawn in Meiyerditch will receive the message: "I really do not want to go anywhere near that! It stinks!" Attempting to use Telekinetic Grab to take it will yield the message: "I really don't want to waste runes on grabbing this item."

Buckets are frequently discarded at allotments.



  • You can store buckets, compost, and supercompost in the farming store of any tool leprechaun. The most you can store is 255, the maximum number in one byte.
  • A bucket can hold 2 litres of water. This can be found by observing that filling a bucket of water increases your weight by 2kg.
