In RuneScape 3 (RS3), the Ore Box is an item used by players to store and transport mined ores while engaging in Mining skill activities. The Ore Box is a highly useful tool that helps players increase their efficiency when collecting ores, as it allows them to carry more ore before needing to deposit it in a bank.
The Ore Box has multiple slots where players can store different types of ores. The number of slots and the type of ores it can store depend on the level of upgrade the Ore Box has. As players increase their Mining skill level, they can unlock upgrades for the Ore Box that allow it to store more types of ores and increase its storage capacity.
To use the Ore Box, players simply need to equip it in their inventory and start mining ores. When their inventory is full, they can open the Ore Box and transfer the stored ores there, which enables them to continue mining without having to return to the bank as frequently.
The Ore Box is particularly useful for players engaging in intensive mining activities that would otherwise require banking ores (this is especially useful if no bank is nearby). With the Ore Box, players can maximize their ore-collecting time and gain more benefits from their mining efforts.
Overall, the Ore Box is a valuable tool for RS3 players looking to enhance their efficiency and productivity in Mining skills, and it is a significant upgrade for those regularly involved in ore collection.
Storage Capacity: Ore boxes can hold 100 of every ore. This limit increases by 20 when the player hits specific level milestones. Once the "Everything Is Oresome" achievement is unlocked, which demands 90 Mining, the storage capacity for all ores, except for gold and silver, rises by an additional 20, reaching a total of 140.
Accessing and Depositing Ores: To use the Ore Box, players need to equip it in their inventory. While mining, they can deposit the ores directly into the Ore Box by right-clicking on the Ore Box and selecting the "Deposit" option. This allows them to keep mining without having to return to a bank until the Ore Box is full.
Withdrawing Ores: Players can withdraw the stored ores from the Ore Box by right-clicking on the Ore Box and selecting the specific ore they wish to take out. They can also withdraw all ores at once by selecting the "Withdraw-X" option.
Note: The Ore Box does not work for ores that cannot be stored in a bank as notes, such as some quest-related ores or specific ores found during certain activities.
Mining Benefits: The Ore Box is especially useful when engaging in activities that involve intensive mining, such as the Motherlode Mine or Volcanic Mine. It increases the efficiency of mining by allowing players to carry more ores before needing to bank, resulting in more gathered resources per trip.
