Mystery box detail.png

Mystery boxes can be obtained from the Quiz Master random event. Players can choose between 1,000 coins or the mystery box upon successfully completing the random event. This item is bankable.

It is recommended to wear a ring of wealth before opening this box, because of the significant chance to roll on the rare drop table. Doing this (along with completing all owned clue scrolls before opening the box) will make it possible to completely eliminate the chance to receive nothing from this box.

If opened on Entrana, the mithril scimitar drop is replaced by five mithril bars, while the steel platebody drop is replaced by five steel bars. This does not however occur while challenging Koschei the deathless, and the box can be used to gain an extra advantage from its weapon and armour drops.

The following drop rates are provided by Jagex, unless otherwise specified.
