Clue Scroll Overhaul | Lightning Weapons

Clue Scroll Overhaul | Lightning Weapons

It’s the week you’ve been waiting for!

Clue Scroll Overhaul

Didn’t think we’d forgotten, did you? The Clue Scroll Overhaul is here, as promised — the perfect hangover cure for Double XP burnout.

Master scrolls

Looking for a new challenge? Take on Master-tier, full of harder, all-new clues and puzzles, and show us what you’re made of.

You can get them by completing any easy to elite clue scroll; furthermore, any method that drops an elite clue scroll has a small chance of upgrading it to master. ⭐ Premier Club Gold members get one pro bono — available to claim until 11th March!⭐

Hidey holes

Conserve that precious inventory space by stashing the items you need for emote clues in hidey holes, which can be found close to your clue coordinates.


We’ve made some of our old Clue Scroll rewards available to non-members, which freed up some room. As such, you can now get your hands on over 60 new rewards, including:

  • Ice dye
  • Second-Age Saradomin armour
  • Robin Hood outfit (including the higher-level elite version)
  • Tuxedo
  • Evening dress
  • Pyjamas
  • New dragon masks
  • And much more!
  • Globetrotter outfit

    Grass greener elsewhere? Swap your clue for something new with the Globetrotter outfit, and even teleport to clue locations! The clinch? You’ll look positively stylin’.

    Patch Notes

    Highlights from this week’s patch notes:

  • Sealed clue scrolls can now be obtained when Fishing, Mining, Woodcutting, or Divining, from most standard skilling activities. 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.
  • Players will be eligible to get one free sealed clue scroll on login from Zaida at the treasure trail hub by the Grand Exchange main entrance. The tier is decided based on the player's total level, ranging from easy to elite.
  • Five new activity high scores have been added for lifetime clue scrolls completed of each tier. These can be accessed from the hiscores tab of the Community parent interface in-game, or from the hiscores page on the RuneScape website.
  • Upon first login after the update, players will be given treasure trail points based on their lifetime completed trails (since tracking began). Players can check their progress on completions for each tier via Quick-chat.
  • Gold Premier Club members are eligible to receive an additional free, sealed master clue scroll from either Zaida or the Vault Guardian for the first two weeks after the update.
  • A Treasure Trail collection log has been added to the Treasure trail hub that tracks players' loot from every tier since tracking began on October 2nd 2017. This functions much like the Boss collection log and can be used to quickly shout out players' progress and finds to various chat channels.
  • Clue scrolls are now dropped or looted as a new object called a 'Sealed clue scroll (difficulty)', which stacks and gives a new clue scroll of the same tier when opened. Players can only have up to one clue of each tier active at any one time, as before. There is a soft cap of 25 on sealed clues for each tier, but guaranteed sources bypass this.
  • A new set of options has been added to Gameplay settings under the heading 'Minigame settings'. The new options allow players to individually toggle whether they receive sealed clue scrolls from skilling or monster drops, and whether they see loot beams for clue scrolls. Guaranteed clue sources bypass this, such as the Aquarium, Skeletal Horror, Triskelion keys, or the Prosper perk.
  • Clue scrolls are now completed when the casket is obtained, not when the casket is opened. This allows players to begin new clue scrolls before opening the caskets, and to save them up if desired.
  • Visit the patch notes forum thread for the full list.
