Treasure Hunter – Protean Logs

Load up on new protean logs this weekend! These stackable supplies can be used to train Firemaking or Fletching, or turned into protean planks for Construction training – perfect when working on your aquarium.

From 00:00 UTC (game time) on the 24th of April until 23:59 UTC on the 27th of April, protean logs will be available on Treasure Hunter.

If Construction's what you're after, take your protean logs to a sawmill (either portable or the one near Varrock) to change them to protean planks for 5 coins each. Click on these and enjoy the XP!

If Firemaking or Fletching takes your fancy, simply click the logs and choose what to train. If you'd like to train both at the same time, first select the Fletching option (the knife tool) – then 'Fletch and Burn' to split your XP gain between both skills.

Note that you can train on 60 logs or planks before you must click again and restart the process. You can make up to 500 planks at a time.

Protean Packs

As a bonus, some of the other protean items on Treasure Hunter have been replaced with protean packs this weekend. These let you choose the items you'd like, giving you more freedom in your skill training.

We've made some improvements to existing protean items, too:

Protean bars:

  • Now available to free players
  • Greater ease of use with the portable forge

Protean traps:

  • Now work in instanced hunting areas
  • Quicker to deploy and redeploy
  • Quicker to attract creatures
  • Longer lasting
  • Can yield strange rocks on success
  • Improved inventory icon

Skill and Chill!

Join us in World 23 for a Skill and Chill Mod Event featuring protean logs! Meet us at Burthorpe Bank at 14:00 game time on Friday 24th April - be there or be square!

What is Treasure Hunter?

Treasure Hunter is a minigame – playable from within RuneScape - where players 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.
