They functioned in roughly the same way as other time-limited event currencies:
- They could be gathered from almost any skilling action, or combat, every 3 minutes, or from completing daily challenges.
- They could be stored in the currency pouch.
- There was no daily limit on the amount that could be gathered.
- 20,000 boat materials were required to unlock all of the rewards.
- Players could convert boat materials into mystery boxes (500 boat materials) and big mystery boxes (1,000 boat materials).
- 500 boat materials per day could be earned at an expedited rate while performing event training
- Daily challenges
- Assisting Mr. Mordaut with an archaeology activity awarded 500 boat materials
Alternatively, boat materials could be bought for RuneCoins on the event interface shop tab:
|Boat materials||RuneCoins||Boat materials per RuneCoin||Price in terms of bonds|
When a player received boat materials, they were notified with one of the following messages:
- You find [X] Boat materials and place them in your bank. (When there was no space in your inventory and there were none in your currency pouch.)
- You find [X] Boat materials and place them in your inventory. (When there was space in your inventory and there were none in your currency pouch.)
- You find [X] x Boat materials. They are added to your currency pouch. (When there were some already in your currency pouch.)
Ironman players could gather, return, and convert boat materials just like regular players. All of the cosmetic override rewards were obtainable. However, mystery boxes and big mystery boxes only gave coins.
There were several methods of idly collecting boat materials in Prifddinas, such as balancing on the Serenity posts in the Hefin district, pickpocketing elven clan workers, playing the harps in the Ithell district, mining Seren stones in the Trahaearn district, or fishing at the Prifddinas Waterfall.
