A mysterious emblem is an item that can be traded in to the Emblem Trader for bounties, which can be used to purchase items from the Bounty Hunter Store. It can be obtained in several ways:

  • Killing the player's assigned target on the official Bounty Hunter world, while having a mysterious emblem in the inventory. The opponent's combat level determines the drop rate.
  • Killing Wilderness bosses on the official Bounty Hunter world.
  • Killing various monsters assigned by Krystilia. Bosses and monsters assigned by her can drop the emblems outside of Bounty Hunter worlds.

Mysterious emblems cannot be dropped. Unlike most items, mysterious emblems have a seven second timer before being destroyed, in order to prevent players from destroying them mid-combat to deny their killer the emblem as loot.

They can be sold to the Bandit Duty Free general store starting at 30,000 coins each. This is beneficial because it can give a much better return compared to selling it to the Emblem Trader for high alchemy items.

A tier 10 emblem is one of the materials required to construct a mounted emblem in the Achievement Gallery, requiring 80 Construction.

Tiers and upgrading[edit | edit source]

There are 10 tiers of emblem with increasing values. Once a mysterious emblem is obtained, players can either trade it in to the Emblem Trader for bounties (points), or upgrade the emblem by killing more Bounty Hunter targets. If a player is holding multiple emblems, only the highest tier emblem will be upgraded. Killing monsters assigned by Krystilia or bosses on Bounty Hunter worlds won't upgrade emblems in the player's inventory, instead the monsters will continue to drop tier 1 emblems.

The number of points granted depends on the tier of the emblem:

Emblem Bounties Emblem Bounties

Mysterious emblem (tier 5).png Tier 5 750,000 Mysterious emblem (tier 10).png Tier 10 5,000,000

Death[edit | edit source]

Emblems are always lost upon death, so players will have to be willing to risk their emblem to receive an emblem in another player's possession or to upgrade them.

A mysterious emblem will be downgraded one tier as they are dropped on death. For example, if a player is killed and had a tier 9 emblem in their inventory, the victor will obtain a tier 8 emblem instead.

Drop rate formula[edit | edit source]

The drop rate of an emblem from a Wilderness Slayer assignment depends on the amount of Hitpoints a monster has.[1] The exact formula is [2].

Changes[edit | edit source]

Date Changes
13 June 2019
(update)
Tier 10 mysterious emblems are now tradeable on the Grand Exchange.
29 November 2018
(update)
Emblems may now be received as a drop from other players only if the killer has an emblem in their inventory. Emblems now also have a seven second timer to destroy to prevent players from destroying it mid-combat out of spite.
2 March 2017
(update | poll)
Mysterious emblems were made more common from monsters. Previously, they had a 1/12 drop rate from bosses and 1/50 from demi-bosses. Tier 1 emblems were also made tradeable on the Grand Exchange.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The tier 1 emblem bares a striking resemblance to the Ancient statuette from RuneScape 3.
  • Attempting to destroy a mysterious emblem while in combat will yield a message reading "Running away? Not so fast..." along with a 7 second cooldown, identical to the message displayed when attempting to teleport in Deadman Mode.
