Emote clues involve equipping certain items in a particular location and performing an emote. They were first introduced to treasure trails on 5 December 2006. These types of clues are featured in all levels of clue scrolls, and most (but not all) items required for the emote clues can be obtained in shops, although using the Grand Exchange is recommended. Once the emote has been performed, an NPC called Uri will appear and usually give the player a scroll box. If Uri is giving the player their reward rather than another clue, he will give the player a casket. If the player has been requested to do another emote before talking to Uri, and they forgot to do it, he will say, I don't believe we have any business... but will not leave. The player can then complete the second emote and finish the clue. Level 1 clues require doing 1 emote, level 2 clues require doing 2, and level 3 clues require doing 1 emote and fighting the double agent.
Many of the items asked for in these clues are obscure. The Grand Exchange is the simplest way to obtain them, but often not the cheapest. As a result of demand by players doing treasure trails, most of these items have been driven up in price considerably above what they would be otherwise worth. In many cases, emote clue items may be bought from shops for considerably less money, or even be player made with little difficulty. Note that wearing any version of a required item different than the standard one will not work (for example; a rune platebody(t) will not work in place of a basic rune platebody).
For level 3 clues, doing the emote will not summon Uri but instead an aggressive NPC known as the double agent, who must subsequently be killed in order for Uri to reappear. The agent is level 77 when encountered in the Wilderness, and level 98 if encountered elsewhere. He uses only melee attacks and is weak to air spells. The player can change equipment to take out the double agent but must change back after killing him in order to complete the clue. Performing the emote again is no longer necessary as of the update released on 28 November 2016.
For players that do treasure trails frequently, it is often economical and time-saving to keep the items for the clue level(s) they do most often in their bank. It is not recommended, however, to keep items for all emote clues banked, as a total of 94 items are used across the three clue levels.
If only hard emotes are done, there are a total of 21 items required; adamant 2h sword, amulet of glory (uncharged), amulet of power, blue dragonhide body, blue dragonhide chaps, blue dragonhide vambraces, bronze platelegs, diamond ring, elemental shield, fire battlestaff, iron pickaxe, iron platebody, iron sq shield, mithril platelegs, mud pie, ring of life, rune full helm, rune hatchet, rune platebody, rune warhammer and splitbark helm.
