In 2016 we saw the release of Crack the Clue. After 12 gruelling months of theorising, searching and inspecting pixels, the Helm of Raedwald was finally found! Congratulations once again, Pikachu Yip! The time has come to bring you the sequel to your favourite clue-seeker event with Crack the Clue 2. Gather your friends and spades and delve into the depths of Gielinor to uncover hidden treasures from a secret organisation.
Similar to the last clue-seeker event, over the course of the next couple of weeks we will be releasing hints to help Crack the Clue. These clues will be solvable in game allowing you to unlock a piece of a brand-new set of cosmetic gear!
Once all clues have been released, the information they provide can be combined to create an especially challenging mystery. The first player to successfully solve it will be forever commemorated in the game. All players who are able to complete the clue will also receive the final piece of equipment to complete the set!
For all things Crack the Clue, be sure to follow our dedicated Clue-hunting Discord, and Reddit as well as our Official Twitter, Instagram, and FaceBook accounts.
To kick things off, here is the clue for the first week:
Please submit your ideas and designs on the following thread here or email them to OldSchoolCommunity@Jagex.com with design attachments as a JPEG file, including your display name (the name of your character in-game) and using the subject line Treasure Trails Expansion. Players whose design we use for rewards, puzzles, and challenges will have their display name forever commemorated on the noticeboard in Watson's house. So get your ideas out there and let's make this expansion all about you, the players! New Clue Tier (Beginner Clues for F2P) We want clue scrolls to be enjoyed by everyone so we would like to add a Beginner Clue. This short 1-3 step clue will be accessible to both F2P and P2P players and will offer some F2P clue challenges and rewards that you can help design and shape. With Beginner Clue Scrolls, we would like to add a clue scroll tutor to teach new F2P players all about clue scrolls and how they work. Along with the tutor, at the end of X Marks the Spot, players will be given an additional reward of a beginner clue scroll and directed to talk to the new clue tutor to learn more about them. Players who have already completed the quest will still be able to claim the clue. Please note that Easy, Medium, Hard, Elite, and Master clues will remain members only. New Clue Puzzles Following on the success of some of our bigger updates these past couple of years, we would like to add new slider puzzles featuring images of those updates. We would also like to add a completely new puzzle type that could be obtained in Hard, Elite, and Master clues. We are open to any suggestions for challenging puzzles for these clues tiers and for new design images for slider puzzles.
