Waterskin detail

Waterskins carry up to four servings of water, and provides protection against the desert heat effect in the Kharidian Desert. Without a waterskin, players will lose health due to dehydration. Without them, the desert is a more dangerous place.

Waterskins can hold up to four sips of water. The number remaining is displayed in parentheses in the name.

Full waterskins are dropped by Kalphites and Desert Strykewyrms, and can be bought from various Kharidian NPCs. Empty waterskins are dropped by Desert Lizards.

Players can refill waterskins by using them with water-filled jugs, buckets, bowls, or water-filled vials which increase their content by 2; or using a knife with certain cacti, which is worth one unit of water. Cutting a cactus in order to fill a waterskin will yield 10 Woodcutting experience. Alternatively, the waterskin can be used on any known water source to fill the waterskin completely.

In addition, the Lunar spell Humidify will refill all waterskins in a player's inventory, making it possible to stay in the desert indefinitely with waterskins.

This is a highly useful item for quests set in the desert.

It takes about 1 minute and 45 seconds to use 1 portion of the waterskin with desert shirt, desert robe and desert boots.

You can buy a desert shirt, desert robe, desert boots and waterskins (0) and (4) from Shantay in Shantay's Pass for no more than 40 coins each.

Waterskins will be used automatically, thus making you able to run around and take a drink at the same time.

They are one of the possible items needed for City Quests in Menaphos.

Tips

  • Do not bring water in open containers (i.e. buckets) instead of waterskins; it will evaporate in the desert heat.
  • Cacti can be cut for a single dose of water to fill waterskins with. Cutting the cactus awards 10 Woodcutting experience. There used to be a 50% success chance but now all the attempts are successful.
