Master Clue Scroll

The Clue Scroll Guide

Clue scrolls (Also called Treasure Trails) contain clues and riddles that a player must solve to eventually find a reward casket. Clue scrolls can be obtained from killing monsters, certain skilling methods, and through several other sources.

There are 5 Tiers of Clue Scrolls:

  • Easy
  • Medium
  • Hard
  • Elite
  • Master

Master clues can be obtained as a reward from any of the other 4 tiers, or by turning in 1 of each tier clue to Watson in Varrock. Elite clues can be obtained from PvP. You must be ranked first or second on either the 7 day or 3 hour leaderboard for a chance at receiving an Elite clue scroll when you kill your opponent. This is one of, if not the best way to obtain Elite clue scrolls. Note: To receive Elite clue scrolls from PvP you need to complete the wilderness achievement diaries.

Whenever you are fishing, woodcutting or mining, you can now randomly obtain a clue bottle, nest or geode. They range from easy to elite. The difficulty is decided at random and the type of fish, tree or rock you mine has no influence on whether you get an easy or an elite clue. The level requirement and your fishing/woodcutting/mining level do however influence how often you will get a clue. You can only have 1 of each tier of each type (so you can have up to 12 skilling clues at any given time). In order to get an actual clue scroll from your skilling clue, simply open the bottle, nest or geode. When you do, you also have a chance to obtain one of these 3 unique items:

  • From a bottle: fishbowl & net, which can be equipped in the weapons slot and can be used as a replacement for a small fishing net, saving 1 inventory space
  • From a nest: musketeer hat (no stats or special use, but you have to admit it looks really cool)
  • From a geode: black pickaxe, which unlike OSRS is as good as a dragon pickaxe (but with a lower level requirement)

Skilling clues will never contain combat steps.


The rewards for each tier are listed on the Wiki Drops page.


Ironmen can obtain additional items from clue scrolls such as custom whips, Ex-ex parrots, and Bounty Hunter Shop items. The Ironman droprate is split up into tiers:

  • For Elite and Master clue caskets you first have a 1 in 100 chance to hit the Third Age Druidic table.
  • For Elite and Master clue caskets you have a 1 in 5 chance to hit the Elite Ironman-only items (with all the Mbox items, Donator items and of course the custom whips).
  • For Hard clue caskets you have a 1 in 8 change to hit the special Hard droptable with the Rune pouch, Ring of Vigour, Ex ex parrot, etc.

If non of the above are hit, you get drops from the regular droptable. All items on the Ironmen drop table have an equal chance of being obtained.

When you receive the arrow clue, it will be pointing in a specific direction. You need to go in the direction that it is pointing. You know you are close to the spot when the arrow begins to turn white. Once it's a solid white colour and starts spinning around when you move just one spot, it means you are in the right location and need to dig. When digging, there is a chance of being attacked by a Double Agent. Pray Melee and kill him to receive a clue. Skilling clues will not contain combat steps. Below is a list of common arrow locations.
