Basic tools could be used in the Heart of Gielinor: Encampment event. During this five-day event, players received 100 Basic tools daily. If players did not log in on a day, then the 100 tools carried over to the next day. Players were also able to win golden tools from Treasure Hunter as well as buy extra basic tools using Loyalty Points.
- 5,000 Loyalty Points for 30 basic tools (maximum of 10 sets)
- 12,000 Loyalty Points for 100 basic tools (maximum of 10 sets)
After the event the basic tools could be handed in at Ajjat for 10 experience each in either Attack, Mining, Strength, Defence, Ranged, Prayer, Magic, Farming, Construction, Hunter or Summoning. Handing in the tools also automatically used all the other tools owned by the player, including golden and banked tools.
