|Uri Molotov - shaken, not stirred.|
Uri Molotov is the man who delivers the next part of a Treasure Trail when the player has completed an emote clue. To summon him the player needs to perform a specified emote in the proper location while wearing (or sometimes not wearing) a specified attire. The player must talk to him while still wearing the required attire upon which he will reward them with another clue scroll or casket and utter a seemingly nonsensical phrase. This phrase has no bearing on the treasure trail.
On hard and master trails, a double agent who looks identical to Uri will appear first and must be killed before Uri will appear. The emote equipment is not required when fighting the agent but will be required to speak to Uri once he appears. It will be required to summon him again, however.
History[edit | edit source]
The following is extracted directly from the RuneScape 3 wiki.
Uri was a high-stakes gambler, often visiting the Duel Arena to bet on the victorious fighters. However, he lost his bets occasionally, and to repay his debts, he took a job as a gravedigger, though in reality he robbed their riches, one example being from the deceased Duchess of Lumbridge. During his time as a gravedigger, an unknown woman asked him to bury her husband, who is presumed to be Charos as she did not give much details about her husband. He tried robbing Charos's grave and used the wishbringer he found to wish for a vast hidden wealth. However, he also became cursed to forever guard it as the double agent. Uri is able to take control of his body for short periods of time so he can help people find his treasures and try to break the curse, but the double agent then usually takes over.
Quotes[edit | edit source]
If the player does not follow Uri's directions or is not doing a Treasure Trail, Uri will only say "I do not believe we have any business, Comrade."; however, he will say one of various phrases when giving out the next part of the trail, and the player will always reply with "What?".
