Protean Cogs | Invention Comes to Treasure Hunter

Invention is coming to Treasure Hunter! From 00:00 UTC on 26th January until 23:59 UTC on 30th January, aspiring inventors will be able find protean cogs in Alice's chests.

Much like other protean items, simply use these stackable beauties from your inventory for a steady stream of XP.

Note that only those who have unlocked the Invention skill by completing the tutorial will be able to use the cogs.

Other protean items will be available, too, and it will be possible to convert other proteans to cogs at the usual 3:2 exchange rate.


Have fun, get inspired, and get levelling. See you in game!

What is Treasure Hunter?

Treasure Hunter is playable from within RuneScape, allowing players to use Keys to claim in-game items as prizes. These range from useful resources to rare weapons and exclusive gear.

Playing Treasure Hunter is simple - click the treasure chest icon that pops up when you log in. If you've not played before, just follow the on-screen guide.

Everyone gets at least one Key per day, and RuneScape members get two. You can earn more Keys while playing the game, or stock up by redeeming Bonds.

If you'd like more, you can also buy Keys on the website, or by clicking 'Buy Keys' within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.
