It is highly recommended to only do this while the Voice of Seren is in the Ithell district as the hour's effects allow the clay rocks to not despawn. In addition, it is highly recommended to use the perfect juju mining potion as its effects have a chance of automatically banking the clay as well as providing a random ore. Finally, it is recommended to use bracelets of clay which double the amount of clay received.

Wearing a charged Amulet of glory while mining increases the chance to mine gems, while wearing a Ring of wealth will cause 2 gems to be mined at once. This is a small but worthwhile increase.

Soft clay is an item that is always in demand due to its use in Crafting. It can only be mined in Prifddinas. Deposits respawn at a very high rate regardless of the server population, though having two rocks to yourself will greatly decrease the time required to fill your inventory. Once you have a full inventory, you can bank at the chest, or craft urns at the nearby wheel and pottery oven.

It is recommended to complete at least the easy Varrock tasks in order to be rewarded with the Varrock armour 1, which provides a chance of double ore per rock when worn.

Having said that, it could also be advisable to only use a Bracelet of clay and Perfect juju mining potion when mining. The reason for this is that the bracelet crumbles after 28 charges, but not while a stone spirit is active, delivering clay to the bank and giving the player bonus ores. In this case, the bracelet of clay will crumble after exactly 2 full inventories of clay, where the player has had to bank manually. If Varrock armour or an Amulet of Glory are used, the inventory will fill at an odd rate due to the extra clay and gems. This means that the bracelet of clay will crumble mid-way through an inventory. Should a stone spirit appear after the bracelet crumbles, the player will only receive one bonus ore from the spirit instead of two, for the 30 seconds the spirit is active. It could be considered much more profitable to gain these extra ores, rather than an occasional soft clay or gemstone, unless the player makes a bank trip when the bracelet crumbles.

Alternatively, players may wish to mine clay outside of Ithell Voice of Seren. For this, players will need 30 bracelets and make a profit of 653,760 per hour.
