A Small Dune is a piece of interactive scenery that spawns as part of the Dune Fractures event. It can be interacted with for either Runecrafting or Mining experience. Players can also check daily progress in the event while at a rift. Small Dunes provide 20% more experience compared to the Large Dune located north of the Lumbridge Crater.
The Small Dune spawns at a random location on each world and moves every 15 minutes. A small yellow bar (similar in appearance to the players' Adrenaline bar) fills gradually over time - once this bar has filled, the small dune despawns and reappears at another location within Gielinor.
This bar will fill regardless if there are players interacting with it or not. Members-only locations do occur on free to play worlds resulting in unreachable locations. If that happens, attempting to use the dune mender to teleport will result in the message: "To go here you must login into a member's server."
