The Christmas corrupt cluefest was a special clue-seeker event held over the last two weeks of 2016. Clues were released on the Official OSRS Twitter and Official OSRS Facebook account.

Damn, to provide context... there will be some clues put out over social media, somewhat similar to crack the clue but considerably easier.

Bit of a raids teaser basically. Keep an eye on the old school twitter!

The numbers correspond to letters that need to be assigned. 6 is a common number, so it is most likely a vowel. By guessing it should be O, one can assume the vertical clue 14-6-T is H-O-T, and the horizontal clue 5-O-O-T-9 is B-O-O-T-S. From there the vertical 3-B-B-O-T is ABBOT, so 3 is A. The horizontal clue 1-L-A-4 is CLAY or FLAX, but 4 is the final letter of a vertical clue, and it's much more likely a word will end in Y rather than X, so the word is CLAY. By continuing this process one would arrive at the following solution:

Take a bowl of hot water, leather boots, and soft clay to Abbot Langley.

One should go according to the order or the reverse order as needed. For example, on the top row, go left from D 2 letters, D-C-B, the question mark corresponds to B. Solving the top rows gives B-O-N-E-S. The final solution is shown:
