The interface of a Court summons.

A Court summons is an item required to take part in the Court Cases Distraction and Diversion. Completion of the King's Ransom quest is required to obtain a court summons. Players can only have one court summons at a time.

Reading the court summons, the player is inform which case has been assigned to them. Players seeking a specific court summons can destroy unwanted summons, allowing for another summons to be obtained.

  • Caskets — Purchasable from the Grand Exchange, this is potentially the quickest method of obtaining a court summons. However, each casket will cost the player 1,888 coins.
  • Dwarven instinct aura — For players with a total level of 1401 or greater, magical chests have a chance to award court summons; up to 7 chests can be opened in an hour.
  • Hill giants — Can be killed quickly by players with medium level combat skills. They drop court summons relatively often. Large numbers can be found within the Edgeville dungeon and resource dungeon.
  • Pickpocketing — Players with a medium Thieving level will rarely be caught pickpocketing Al-Kharid warriors. It is suggested to equip a bow without arrows, or a weapon which prevents attacking, such as the Sculpting chisel to avoid entering combat against your Thieving target. Knights of Ardougne should be considered for players above level 70 Thieving.
