I've been trying to use the Strong Mining Urns whilst mining Luminite rocks, but they're not being filled. I'm F2P and I remembered that strong mining urns were a members item, till after this Mining and Smithing rework, so I'm unsure whether it is a bug/oversight, or whether it is supposed to still be a members item but I somehow managed to make them?

Just to clarify, I'm level 55 mining, and the text when I click on examine says: "This will collect ore slivers when I mine ore at or below Mining level 70". I also do not have any incomplete urns in my bank/inventory, and have enough space in my backpack to store the urn if it were to be filled.

Has any F2P players encountered this, and if so is it because it IS a member's item, and for some reason no text like "You must be a member to use this item" doesn't come up when examining it?

Cheers, and sorry if this is the wrong place to post.

I would imagine that it's an oversight and wasn't changed in the crafting interface as the urns are still probably coded to the understanding that adamant ore is level 70. Rather than the level it currently is. ~Tranq~ C7-456-18

Have you checked to make sure you don't have any full urns already. If you have 10 filled or partial filled already you can't fill anymore according to the wiki. Until you start sending them away. ~Tranq~ C7-456-18

Perhaps it's not really a bug the way you think.

Strong Mining urns were members-only before the M&S rework, just like every other strong urn of a free-to-play skill. Free-to-play can now only mine rocks up to level 50, which is all covered by the normal mining urn.
Apart from a lower amount of urns needed when gaining x amount of xp, there's no real use for them in f2p.
Perhaps Jagex made the mistake of turning them half into a f2p object so f2p can make them, but still half members-only so f2p can't use them. If this is the case, f2p was never meant to have them in the first place.

Just a thought I had, it could be wrong.

This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

This happened to me, also... I can fill other urns just fine, even other mining urns, but not these ones. Definitely a bug. I think they were made F2P by mistake somehow with the M&S update, but it doesn't apply to actually using them?

I submitted a bug report, then tried again a few days later, but I haven't heard anything.: ( I made a ton of them before realizing, too. Now I guess I have to just sell them and accept that I wasted a bunch of time & runes. Disappointing.
