A volatile clay needle is one of the possible tools that the Volatile Tool can transform into. The needle gives 29,340 bonus experience in the Crafting skill and it can be obtained by chance in the Stealing Creation minigame by purchasing the Volatile Tool for 20 stealing creation points and making it transform. Once the bonus experience is gained it is not necessary to carry the discharged tools around to benefit from it. The tool will lose 10% of its potential bonus experience if you revert it. If you attempt to revert it when it is depleted it will be destroyed.
After the 8 October, 2013 bonus experience update, these tools have become much better to use. The player may simply revert and transform the tool until they get the type they want, then recharge that tool. This makes them better than a Proto-tool if you aim to gain a good amount of experience.
