A compass pointing due North
A compass spinning when on a different layer than the clue is pointing to.
compass clue can be part of an elite treasure trail. Compass clues were added to the game as part of the Treasure Trail update on 4 August 2010.
When a compass clue is clicked on it will display an interface with an arrow that points in the direction of a spot that the player must locate. The arrow only shows the direction of the required location, and not the distance to it. Therefore, the most common method for completing compass clues effectively and efficiently is by
triangulation. This is done by teleporting around RuneScape to gain an idea of where the location might be e.g. teleport to Taverley; if the compass points west, the player should go to a location to the west of Taverley; if the compass points east, the player should go a location to the east of Taverley. Additionally a player can tell if they are near to or from the correct location based on how fast the arrow changes direction (if the player is close to the right spot the arrow will change the direction in which it is pointing more quickly as the player moves around). Once the player has established that they are close to the correct location, they should move in the direction indicated by the compass.
When the player is standing at the correct location, the compass' arrow will change to an 'X' symbol. When standing on the spot shown by the X the player can dig to receive their next clue or casket. Digging may spawn a
Guthix wizard, however players can avoid this by using a Meerkat's fetch casket scroll to retrieve the next clue or casket.
