Infernal urn detail

Urns are a type of pot made using the Crafting skill, used for gaining bonus experience when training other skills. They were first mentioned in the February 2011 Behind the Scenes article and released on 15 February 2011. A second batch of urns, which also made all rune urns stackable, were then released on 24 July 2017. Urns are available for 10 different skills: Cooking, Divination, Farming, Fishing, Hunter, Mining, Prayer, Runecrafting, Smithing, and Woodcutting.

CreationEdit

To make an urn, a player must have 2 soft clay in their inventory. Next, the player must find a pottery wheel to mould the clay on. The player will then be asked to select the type of urn to be made from a drop down menu. To get the drop down menu, click in the upper left hand corner, the brown text box should say "pottery" click on it and the drop down menu should appear. This produces an unfired, or (unf), urn . The types of urns that players can craft depends on the player's Crafting level. Urns that require a higher Crafting level to create will catch scraps from higher level training activities. The Assist System can be used to craft urns that are above a player's Crafting level. Alternatively, a no rune, or (nr), urn can be bought from other players.

Once a player has an urn (unf), they can use it with a pottery oven to make an urn (nr). Players must then add a rune to the urn in order to make an urn, or (r), urn which can be used to gain bonus experience. Each urn uses the following runes to be activated:

To attach a rune to an urn, you must have the Crafting level required to make the specific urn. For example, to add a rune to a decorated cooking urn (nr), you must have at least 81 Crafting. The assist system can be used for attaching runes to urns, which allows players with any Crafting level to use any type of urn.

When a rune is attached, the player will gain 1 experience in the skill of the urn. For example, if a player adds a fire rune to any tier Smithing urn, they will gain 1 Smithing experience.

Only urns with the no rune (nr) designation are tradeable.

Calculation of materials requiredEdit

Material needed

All urns give a 20% bonus on the experience required to fill them. Therefore, you can use the following to calculate the required amount of the material gathered in order to fill the urn:

\mbox{Material needed} = \frac{5 \times \mbox{urn exp}}{\mbox{unit exp}}

For example: A yew log gives 175 experience and a strong woodcutting urn gives 1662.5 experience. The formula calculates that 47.5 logs are required, so the urn will be full after 48 logs are cut. (If a second woodcutting urn is present in the inventory, the remaining half a log worth of experience will be transferred to the new urn.)

Percentage filled

The contribution of each unit material toward filling the urn can also be calculated. The following can be used to estimate the percentage contribution of filling the urn per unit material:

\mbox{Percentage per material} = \frac{20\times \mbox{unit exp}}{\mbox{urn exp}}

Example continued: \frac{20\times 175}{1662.5} \approx 2.1\%, so each log will fill the urn by about 2.1%.

Prayer urns

For the prayer urns the formula is a bit different, since the bonus experience including the unit experience is awarded when the urn is teleported. In this case the "urn experience" above should just be the bonus experience, i.e. one sixth of the experience awarded when teleporting the urn.

UsageEdit

Full urn teleport

A player teleporting a full urn to Ernie

Urns are very simple to use. All a player must do is keep the urn in their inventory while training. Empty urns are stackable, but will generate a new item when starting to fill them. For every five normal experience points gained, one bonus experience point is added to the urn. Once the urn has been filled to capacity, it can be teleported to Ernie. A miscellaneous game setting allows players to automatically teleport full urns. After teleporting an urn, the player receives the experience held by the urn. Thus, having a suitable urn in inventory while training a skill results in a 20% higher experience gain. Using an urn enhancer further increases experience awarded by 25% at the expense of 20 divine charges.Urns differ in the skill for which they collect bonus experience, their capacity, and restrictions on the quality of resources from which they can collect scraps.

Only "base" experience from skill training counts towards filling an urn. For example, if one were to mine two ores at once using Varrock armour, only the experience from the first ore would count towards filling the urn. This also means that other "bonus" experience boosts given (such as from a Penance horn or Sacred clay item) or a special experience gain (such as a minigame reward or Genie Lamp) does not count towards filling the urn. For example, cutting magic logs with a sacred clay hatchet will grant the base 250 bonus experience toward filling the urn, but not the extra 250 experience rewarded from the hatchet's bonus experience.

Use of Crystallise currently has different effects on filling urns of different types. Fishing and woodcutting urns are filled at a normal rate when fishing a crystallised fishing spot, while mining urns are filled with the 50-87.5% extra experience from using crystallise and light form counting towards filling the urn.

Prayer urns Edit

Prayer urns are unique in that the player does not receive ashes as a drop when killing a demon with a suitable urn in the inventory. Instead, the experience one would have gained from scattering the ashes plus a 20% bonus are directly added to the urn. This eliminates having to collect the ashes and scattering them manually, and allows training Prayer by killing demons from a safe spot without having to leave the safe spot to collect ashes.

Killing demons is the only way to fill prayer urns, or imps for impious urns. Scattering ashes manually, such as ashes that were obtained as drops or by trade, has no effect on urns and receives no bonus. Prayer urns give a 20% bonus to the experience gained from </span>Demonic ashes.

Using multiple urns Edit

Only one urn of a specific skill type may be filled at a time. If a player has two or more urns of the same type in inventory and one is filled, leftovers from the first urn will automatically be added to the second urn. Players may have multiple urns from various skills; for example, filling a cracked fishing urn while also filling a cracked mining urn.

Players can only have 10 partially filled or full urns in one skill type at a time. Once the maximum number of urns is reached in total (inventory plus bank), at least one urn must be teleported away (only full urns may be teleported) before another urn can be filled. There is very little advantage to be gained from stockpiling full urns - the only use is to speed the completion of a daily challenge that requires urns to be teleported.

Assisting Edit

Players can buy an urn from the Grand Exchange and get an assist to add a rune to activate the urn. When using the Assist system, any suitable urns held by the assisted are filled, but none of the assister. However, in order to teleport the urn(s) the assisted must have the Crafting level required to make the urn.

Beasts of burdenEdit

Unlike most untradeable items, runed urns (r) can be stored with beasts of burden. It is unclear why this is the case. If this mechanic is ever changed, (nr) urns could be stored along with the appropriate runes. A partially-filled urn cannot be stored with a BOB.

TriviaEdit

  • When you "Check Level" of an urn that is exactly half full, the message shown is "This (urn type) is half full, or is it half empty?" as opposed to "This (urn type) is 50% full." a reference to the common optimist/pessimist comparison, "Is the glass half empty or half full?"
  • Previously, teleporting urns did not require corresponding crafting level to make or add runes to them. However, this was changed with the Evolution of Combat, but the requirement can be boosted or assisted. The crafting level requirement to teleport urns has been removed on 14 August 2017.
  • With the game update on 24 July 2017, urns that are filled with a rune (r) are stackable. Also, 4 new types of urns were released: Divination, Farming, Hunter, and Runecrafting.[2]
  • With the game update on 31 July 2017, cutting ivy can be used to fill woodcutting urns.[3]
