Anagrams[edit | edit source]

An anagram is a string of letters, which can be rearranged into another word or phrase. For example: orchestra is an anagram of carthorse.

The solution of an anagram is always the name of an NPC. Once the solution is found, the player can get their next clue by talking to that NPC. Often, when talking to an NPC, the player will receive a challenge scroll, puzzle box or light box that they must solve before receiving the next clue.

The anagrams in clue scrolls do not correspond with the number of spaces in a name; an anagram with no spaces may have an answer with a name corresponding with one or more spaces.

Ciphers[edit | edit source]

Ciphers are a method of encrypting information. In Old School RuneScape, ciphers are used as a step in a Treasure Trail. They use a Caesar Shift in order to encrypt a NPC's name.

Coordinates[edit | edit source]

Quick links: 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25

During a Treasure Trail, a coordinate clue is a clue scroll that contains a set of coordinates. Much like the real-world longitude & latitude geographic coordinate system, coordinates in RuneScape indicate a precise point somewhere on the surface where the next clue scroll, or potentially the treasure casket, is buried. Coordinates are presented in the following format:

(click to enlarge)

03 degrees 00 minutes north/south
02 degrees 00 minutes east/west

In RuneScape, one square of space is equivalent to 1.875 minutes.

Although a chart, sextant and watch may be used to determine one's present coordinates, players only need a spade in their inventory to dig up the clue.

On hard Treasure Trails, digging on the correct spot will cause a level 108 Saradomin wizard to appear, which must be defeated before the next clue scroll or the treasure casket may be dug up. If the coordinates are located in the Wilderness, a weaker level 65 Zamorak wizard will appear instead, which must also be defeated in order to dig up the next clue scroll or the treasure casket. Saradomin wizards are poisonous and use both Melee, using a Dragon dagger (p++), and the Magic spell Saradomin Strike. It is advised to wear dragonhide armour and use the Protect from Melee prayer when fighting Saradomin wizards. Zamorak wizards use only the spell Flames of Zamorak. It is advised to use the Protect from Magic prayer when fighting the Zamorak wizard in the Wilderness, and to look out for player-killers, as other players can interrupt your fight.

On elite Treasure Trails, digging on the correct spot will cause either a level 97 Armadylian guard or a level 125 Bandosian guard to appear, which must be defeated before the next clue scroll or the treasure casket may be dug up. Armadylian guards must be killed with either Ranged or Magic attacks, since they are in the form of an Aviansie. It is advised to use the Protect from Missiles prayer when fighting them, and Protect from Melee when fighting Bandosian guards.

Due to the current threat of player-killers, if the coordinates for your scroll is near level 36 Wilderness, it is advisable to use the waka canoe, which requires 57 Woodcutting. This can take you to level 36 Wilderness so that potential player-killers don't immediately spot you going into the Wilderness and kill you. In addition, potential player-killers won't know whether you went into the Wilderness or to a different area. As a result, you should go to one or more different locations, and then take the waka to the Wilderness. This is because if another player spots you in the Wilderness, they might attempt to kill you. Using a games necklace and teleporting to Corporeal Beast works in similar fashion.

On master Treasure Trails, digging in the correct spot will cause either three Ancient Wizards (levels 112, 98, 98) in multi-combat, or a level 140 Brassican Mage, which need to be defeated before the next clue scroll or the treasure casket may be dug up. If the coordinates are located in a multi-combat area, three Ancient wizards each attacking with a unique attack style. Melee wizards are poisonous with poison dealing 8 damage to a player. In single-combat zones, a Brassican Mage will appear, and its attacks cannot be stopped by protection prayers.

Following is a list of all known coordinate clues and their corresponding locations. The list is organised into ascending numerical value (for example, 00:00 north first, then 00:05 south, then 00:13 north, continuing accordingly). Shorthand writing is used together with normal writing. An example: 09.34N, 25.12E = 09 degrees and 34 minutes north, 25 degrees and 12 minutes east.

Remember: You must have a spade with you to dig up coordinate clues.

Note that some of the clues may require skill or quest requirements before you will be able to get to that location.' These quests, which must be finished or partially completed, include: Bone Voyage, Regicide, Legends' Quest, Nature Spirit, The Grand Tree, Fairytale II - Cure a Queen, Troll Stronghold, Cabin Fever, The Fremennik Trials, and Watchtower. Some coordinates will also require a certain skill levels to complete the clue, though the required level is low.

In Tirannwn, dig by the western spawn point of the roving elves south-east of the catapult, near the Tyras Camp. Watch out for the stick trap. Port Tyras is accessible via the charter network if the player wishes to avoid walking long distances.

From Tyras Camp: go north past the dense forest, walk a few steps east and go south past the stick traps. Also can use fairy ring BJS and run north to Tyras Camp (requires 76 AgilityAgility icon.png).

From Lletya: go out of the city, past the trip wire, south over the leaf trap, past the Elf Tracker, west through the dense forest, over a second trip wire, north through another dense forest, then west and south past the stick trap.

Location notes
In the hunter area directly south of the Iorwerth Camp, past a stick trap, dig by the north-east edge of the pond. An Iorwerth camp teleport can greatly reduce the difficulty in reaching this position.

From Lletya: Pass the tree, go west across the tripwire, continue west through the dense forest. Turn north and up the path to Prifddinas. Before the bridge and the water, head west through the dense forest. Then, keep going west past the leaves pitfall trap, then south-west past a stick trap.

From Port Tyras: Go north through dense forest then east; go south through dense forest; step over tripwire; go east through the dense forest then north-west for quite a while; jump over the leaves. Finally, continue west till you arrive at a elven lamp next to mushrooms. Head south down the small path to the pond. Pass the stick trap and dig by the north-east edge of the pond.

This clue can be frustrating due to the frequency of activating the stick traps, which deal significant amounts of damage. There is a better success rate of passing the trap by turning off run and walking past the trap.

It's recommended to follow this map in order to not get lost.

Cryptic clues[edit | edit source]

Cryptic clues are common riddle clues that can be found in all level Treasure Trails. These clues demand a fairly wide variety of tasks. The tasks range from speaking to an NPC, searching a designated crate, or directing the player to dig in some fairly obscure location. For higher difficulty Treasure Trails, players may have to complete additional side tasks in order to complete the clue. These side task challenges may include finding a key or completing a puzzle box.

When doing medium Treasure Trails, clues will occasionally lead to a locked chest or drawer, which requires a key to open. Attempting to open the chest or drawer will provide a clue to which specific, usually local, monster to kill. Monsters that drop treasure trail keys drop them only when the player is in possession of that clue. It is worth noting that for clue steps involving keys, it is possible to obtain the key before reading the hint, which could save the player some time.

During hard or master clues, players may receive a puzzle box challenge from a NPC. Players must unscramble the image in order to receive the next clue or the reward.

During master clues, players are given three cryptic clues. Players must go to the destination each cryptic provides and dig at the correct spot to obtain a torn part of the clue scroll. When all three are obtained they automatically fuse to become the next step in the treasure trail or a casket.

Emote clues[edit | edit source]

Emote clues involve equipping certain items in a particular location and performing an emote. These types of clues are featured in all levels of Treasure Trails. Once the emote has been performed, Uri will appear and give the player the next clue (or the reward, if the emote clue was the final step of the Treasure Trail). If the player has been requested to do another emote before talking to Uri, and they forgot to do it, he will say, I don't believe we have any business... but will not leave. The player can still perform the second emote and then talk to Uri to finish the clue. Easy clues require performing one emote, medium clues require performing two, and hard and above clues require performing one emote, then fighting an enemy such as the Double Agent. Elite clues do not involve fighting the Double Agent.

Note that wearing any version of a required item different than the standard one will not work (for example, a Rune platebody (t) will not work in place of a Rune platebody).

For players who do Treasure Trails frequently, it is not recommended to keep items for all emote clues banked, as hundreds of different items are used across the Treasure Trail levels and can take up bank space. Players with the appropriate construction level can build STASH units to store emote clue items near where the emote clue is located, saving bank space.

Maps[edit | edit source]

Map clues are an image of a location the player needs to search to advance along their trail. Maps are found across all clue scroll difficulties. They are rough pictures of a very local area. If the map leads to an X, the player needs to take a spade to the place indicated on the map with the X and dig there. If the map leads to a crate, it must simply be searched. Sometimes, players may find a small pile of crates, or a multitude of them. Search all of them until the next clue or the reward is found. Maps can include landmarks such as buildings, fish to indicate fishing spots, roads, rivers, bridges, and so on.

Digging in the location pointed to by a map clue will never spawn any monsters.

Maps are sorted by boxes and then by X, and then from left to right based on the location of the mark.

Puzzle Boxes

Occasionally, players will need to solve puzzle boxes for a hard, elite or master clue in a Treasure Trail. Puzzle boxes contain a scrambled image that players must work to unscramble by clicking on tiles to move them to an empty space. Once the puzzle box is completed, players will need to talk to the NPC who gave the puzzle box to receive the next clue or the reward.

A guide on how to solve puzzle boxes is available at Treasure Trails/Guide/Puzzle boxes.
