A clue to great treasure!
It points to great treasure!
A Clue scroll (elite) (also known as a level 4 clue scroll) is a rare random drop from high-levelled monsters and boss monsters. If a player possesses a clue scroll, they must either complete it or drop/destroy it in order to receive a new one. Clue scrolls are the start of a Treasure Trail - a treasure hunt that sends players hunting all around RuneScape. At the end of the hunt players receive a reward of items randomly selected from a specific list, possibly including very rare and very valuable items. For a guide on how to complete a clue scroll, see: Treasure Trails Guide. Level 4 clue scrolls are very long, and involve a puzzle box OR celtic knot OR battle with a Guthix wizard every clue, although you can avoid fighting the Guthix wizard if you dig with a meerkat instead of a spade. Sometimes they are known to repeat the same clue over again. They can also take the player deep into the Wilderness. They do not consist of any clues found in levels 1-3, but instead feature only Compass and Scan clues. They have a chance of offering extremely rare and valuable items, such as Third-age druidic robes, Dragon masks, and Ornament kits.
Elites are much more rare than the lesser varieties are. Very few monsters in RuneScape actually drop them with the lowest levelled being the Giant mole. If players are looking to farm elites, then the recommended monsters would be Mithril dragons, Ice strykewyrms, and the Skeletal Horror. For those with a high Slayer level, Mutated jadinko males are also a good choice. Edimmus are also a great source of elite clues, as well as triskelion fragments, which guaranteed an elite clue if no clues are in your possession.
One, and only one, may also be dug up if located using Ava's Alerter after completing the quest Do No Evil. They can be located even if you already have a clue scroll, but not picked up. Additionally, using a Gold key to open a golden Shades of Mort'ton chest has a chance of obtaining one, but this requires at least 80 Firemaking in order to burn Fiyr remains, which are currently the only source of Gold keys.
It is also possible to obtain elite clue scrolls from pickpocketing Elven clan workers in Prifddinas. Players are guaranteed an elite clue scroll from a completed Crystal triskelion, provided that they do not currently have a clue scroll.
This clue scroll may contain the following types of clue:
Completion of elite clues will either give a Scroll box (elite), containing another clue, or a Casket (elite), containing the final reward for the trail. You may also receive a Puzzle scroll box (elite) or Puzzle casket (elite), both similar to their counterparts but requiring the completion of a Celtic knot or Slider puzzle before they can be opened.
Upon completion of a clue scroll, players will receive one, or sometimes more, of these clue scroll exclusive rewards, as well as at least one other item. These can include dragon equipment (limited to dagger and longsword), 1-2 yew seeds, a palm tree seed, 3 super attack (4) and 3 super strength (4) and 3 super defence (4), 9 antifire (4), 9 prayer potion (4), antipoison++ (4), 9 super restore (4), 1-2 snapdragon seeds, Blood runes, crystal keys, onyx bolt tips, rune bars, wild pies, tuna potatoes, or amulets of glory, coins, runes and staves.

Alerter Locations Edit
After completing the quest Do No Evil and acquiring the Ava's alerter, players are able to obtain one clue scroll (elite). It can be found in one of four random locations, and can only be obtained once.
These locations are not guaranteed and that each player has one preset location. Also, you cannot wear any type of metal armour at the same time, or the alerter will not function correctly. (Certain hybrid armours like the Warpriest armours still work, however.
The alerter will notify you with a "Bwuk", "Bwuk Bwuk", and "Bwuk Bwuk Bwuk" when you are nearby; and finally "Bwuk Bwuk Bwuk Bwuk" when you are on top of the correct spot. Dig on that exact spot to receive the clue.
It is recommended to start with the easiest of the locations,and then move on to each progressively more difficult location until you find the clue scroll.
|On the Iceberg featured in the penguin quests. After getting off the boat, run northwest to the giant ice column seen on the minimap. It's on the northwestern side of the column.|
|The southwest part of Lunar Isle; west of the astral altar and south of the city. Quick access will require you turning on the Lunar Isle lodestone.|
|West of the Underground Pass exit into Isafdar in a clearing. For fast access, use a Crystal trinket to teleport to Llyeta and go past traps to get here. If coming from Port Tyras, follow the way you took to get to the camp.|
If the Branches of Darkmeyer quest is complete, you can use Drakan's medallion for fast access to Meiyerditch. Otherwise, if the Legacy of Seergaze quest has been completed, you can use either the Abyss or a Blood altar teleport to access the nearby Blood Altar. Otherwise, in Meiyerditch; get caught by a vyrewatch. Choose to do hard labour and get sent to the mines. Ask a miner for a spare pickaxe, mine 15 daeyalt ore, deposit them in the mine cart, and then talk to one of the guards to be let out. Now run south along the eastern wall. The spot is in an indent in the wall (on the minimap).
If travelling from the Myreque's Meiyerditch hideout, climb up the stairs in the room to the north, jump to the floorboards, and climb down the ladder just like in the quest. Then, open the door and head directly north across a room. Once outside of it in the clearing, it's a straight run to the crate's location.
