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 and Cooking.

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

Werewolf88; 931Rare


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.


Players can also buy buckets in several stores throughout the game, including:

Store name Location Amount Notes
Port Phasmatys General Store Port Phasmatys 300 Ghostspeak amulet or completion of Morytania's Hard Tasks
All other General stores* Varies, see General store article 30 * With the exceptions of:
Vanessa's Farming Shop Catherby east of the farming spot 100
Alice's Farming Shop Morytania, west of Port Phasmatys 100
Richard's Farming Shop Ardougne, north of Ardougne lodestone 100
Sarah's Farming Shop Falador cabbage patch 100

  • 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.
