Clue scroll (beginner) detail.png

A clue scroll (beginner) is a random drop from a large variety of lower-levelled monsters in free-to-play. They can also be received from baby implings, young implings, clue bottles, clue geodes, and clue nests. Clue scrolls are the start of a Treasure Trail - a treasure hunt that sends players hunting all around Gielinor following a trail of clues that lead to rare and unique treasures.

For a guide on how to complete a clue scroll, see Treasure Trails Guide. Beginner clues can be between 1-3 steps long. Unlike all other clue types, which are equally likely to have each number of steps, beginner clues have a 10% chance of completion at 1 step and a 45% chance of completion at 2 or 3 steps[1].

Beginner clue scrolls are the easiest to obtain and complete, and offer low rewards in return. One is given as a reward by Veos after completing X Marks the Spot should players not have one already in their possession.

Completion of beginner clue steps will give another clue or a reward casket, containing the final reward for the trail. After completing 600 beginner clues, the player will unlock the Explore emote.

Beginner clue scrolls are not required to be given to Watson in exchange for a master clue scroll. In addition, beginner clue scrolls will not give master clue scrolls as a reward.

Types of clues[edit | edit source]

Please note that it is possible to receive the same clue more than once.

Requirements[edit | edit source]

Certain clues will require items that need a certain skill requirement in order to wear or wield. The table below shows the highest skill requirement, in order to complete every beginner clue.

Skill level Details
Cooking 20 Required to cook a pike.
Fishing 25 Required to catch a raw pike.
Mining 15 Required to mine an iron ore.
Smithing 15 Required to smith an iron dagger.
Crafting 18 Required to craft leather chaps.

Ironman will require the specific crafting level for the gold jewellery for some of the emote clues.

Possible rewards[edit | edit source]

The average loot roll is worth 3,480. On average, beginner clues are worth 6,960.

As well as unique Treasure Trails rewards, players may also receive a variety of items. A more detailed overview of all possible rewards can be found at reward casket (beginner).
