This article is about the item used in Treasure Trails. For other uses, see Clue scroll (disambiguation).
Clue scroll detail

A Clue scroll sends 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 open one Sealed clue scroll if they do not already have one of the same type active in their inventory or bank.

As of Monday 26 February 2018, sealed clue scrolls can now be obtained when Fishing, Mining, Woodcutting, or Divination, from most standard skilling activities in addition to Thieving which was already possible previously. The tier of clue scroll players receive is weighted based on their level of the activity, with elites appearing at level 60 training methods and higher. There is always a 1% chance for a sealed elite clue to upgrade to a sealed master clue. This can however be boosted to a 2% chance if the invention perk Prosper is in use.

Difficulty

Puzzle box (castle) detail

There are five 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 600,000 coins if a suitcase is obtained.
  • Medium clue scroll can range from a few thousand coins to over 1,400,000 coins if a pair of ranger boots are obtained.
  • Hard clue scrolls can range from a few thousand coins to over 620,000,000 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.
  • Master clue scrolls can range from a few thousand coins to over 2,150,000,000 coins if any of the rare items are obtained.

Rewards

Trivia

  • After the Clue Scroll Overhaul update on Monday 26 February 2018, there were many changes to Treasure Trails.
  • 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.
