Clue scroll (master) detail.png

A clue scroll (master) is the highest tier of clue scroll. It can be between 6 and 8 steps long, and rewards a master reward casket upon completion.

Players can obtain a master clue scroll from the following methods:

  • By bringing one each of the easy, medium, hard, and elite clue scrolls to Watson, who is located in the large, fenced-in house west of the Forthos Ruin in Hosidius. It should be noted that if you have an incomplete master scroll and attempt to obtain a new scroll, Watson will take all lower tier scrolls but NOT give you a master scroll until either you complete the original scroll or discard it.
  • As a potential reward from completing any easy, medium, hard or elite treasure trails, with the chances of obtaining them being 1/50, 1/30, 1/15, and 1/5 respectively.

Like elite and hard clue scrolls, master clue scrolls also have combat encounters. They include a Brassican Mage, Double agent or three Ancient Wizards (in multi-combat areas). As their tier suggests, master clues require numerous high-levelled items, requirements, and quests in order to complete them.

It should be noted that if a player dies in the Wilderness with a clue scroll in above level 20, it will disappear whether it's a PvP death or not, unless it is an item kept on death, or if that player has a clue box. Players will find that the clue scroll will be gone upon returning to their loot otherwise. However, when dying in the Wilderness with a clue box, the clue will stay in the inventory while the clue box is lost. Players may find it beneficial to carry a Wilderness Sword (to cut webs), Royal Seed Pod/Teleport Crystal, and/or an Explorer's Ring, as clue scrolls are always kept above these items; these however will be lost upon death and duplicates are easily obtainable. In lower wilderness however (level 20 or lower) in PvP death, the unprotected clue will stay on the ground for up to 1 hour. The same goes for reward caskets. If you die in lower Wilderness due to a monster you will always keep the clue whether protected or not.
