Clue scroll detail

A Clue scroll send the player on Treasure Trails, a series of clues leading towards a buried treasure. Clue scrolls can be randomly dropped by various monsters, found while pickpocketing H.A.M. Members and Elven clan workers, looted from a Treasure chest decoration, or purchased with Thaler. Players will only be able to receive a new clue scroll if they do not already have one of the same type in their inventory or bank.

DifficultyEdit

Puzzle box (castle) detail

There are four levels of clue scroll difficulties, with better rewards available as the difficulty increases. After the player has completed the last clue of the set, they will receive a reward. Due to the small chance of receiving rare items worth millions of coins, a player may choose to complete Treasure Trails to make money. However, players may complete thousands of clues without finding anything of grand value.

The value of clue rewards can range from as few as 100 coins to well over 2 billion coins.

  • Easy clue scroll rewards range from as few as 100 coins to over 3,900,000 coins if a Suitcase is obtained.
  • Medium clue scroll can range from a few thousand coins to over 5,200,000 coins if a pair of Ranger boots are obtained.
  • Hard clue scrolls can range from a few thousand coins to over 1,070,000,000 coins if a rare Shadow dye is obtained.
  • Elite clue scrolls can range from a few thousand coins to over 2,150,000,000 coins if the very rare Third-age dye is obtained.

Members, rewarded from felling Evil trees, obtained from the Shades of Mort'ton minigame, looted from Caskets, and obtained from the resources collected managing Miscellania.

Medium clue scrolls are generally more complex than easy clues. They can be obtained as a random drop from a large variety of mid-level monsters. Stanley Limelight Traders sell medium clue scrolls for 15 thaler each. An easy way to obtain a medium clue scroll is by killing pyrefiends or yeti. Wearing a Ring of wealth increases the players chance of finding a clue scroll.

RewardsEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Previously, if a player had more than one reward casket in their inventory and opened both in quick succession, the first casket would place its rewards in the players inventory, while the other gave a new clue scroll. This has since been corrected.
  • It is possible to obtain more than one clue scroll of a given level if the player has one dropped on the ground and receives a new one from a magical chest.
  • It is possible for players to receive the same clue multiple times in a row.
  • If a player dies while doing a clue scroll, it will be kept automatically unless within the Wilderness.
  • Prior to the 18 May 2015 update, players were able to have only one clue scroll at a time.
