Findable items are the items found in many areas throughout RuneScape, that offer places to search for items that may or may not be of use. Some of these are oddities, while others are bits of armour, and while most of them may have some sort of use as skill items, a few of them are utterly useless.
Places such as chests, crates, boxes, barrels, cupboards and bookshelves may offer findable items. In some cases, these items may be required for certain quests. In other cases, the locations may offer a few gold coins. In yet other cases, various bits of trash can be discovered in these areas, or, in the case of chests, runes. Other items may be found just lying on the ground or on tables or counters at respawn points. Since a recent update, trash items have been removed from searching barrels, crates, etc.
Although trash items have been removed from searching barrels, crates, etc, there are still lots of things in Runescape that can be found. A Bronze helm can be found on the table in Draynor Manor's exit room. A bronze scimitar can be found in Rimmington's 2nd house on the left (the one beside the witch's house) 2nd floor. a Leather body can be found lying on the floor in the house behind the Blue Moon Inn.
