A clue scroll (medium) is a valuable random drop from a large variety of mid-levelled monsters. Clue scrolls are the start of a Treasure Trail - a treasure hunt that sends players hunting all around Gielinor. At the end of the hunt players receive a reward of items randomly selected from a specific list, possibly including very rare and very valuable items. For a guide on how to complete a clue scroll, see: Treasure Trails Guide. Medium clue scrolls are mostly easy to obtain and complete, and offer average rewards in return. The rewards can range from mithril armour to ranger boots.
Medium clue scrolls offer coordinate clues along with more complex puzzles than easy clues, and occasionally a monster ranging from a chicken to a Market Guard may be fought. However, there are no clue steps that brings you to the wilderness.
They can take between 3 and 5 steps to complete.
As for all tiers of clue scrolls, only one medium clue scroll can be held, kept in death's office or stored in a bank at one time.
If a player dies in the Wilderness with a clue scroll 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. In lower level Wilderness, unprotected clue scrolls will stay on the ground for an hour if killed by another player, or remain in the inventory if killed by a monster.
A one-time medium clue scroll can be rarely obtained (1/256 chance) from feeding a monkey bananas. When this happens, a message appears in the player's chat box saying "The monkey chews on the banana and spits out a clue!".
