Watson chathead.png

Watson is a Treasure Trails expert who lives in Hosidius. He can be found in the large, fenced-in house west of the Forthos Ruin. Players can trade him one each of easy, medium, hard, and elite clue scrolls to receive a master clue scroll. Be careful, he will take clue caskets if you are holding them and use the turn in all option. Challenge scrolls, such as ones from Sherlock, may be given to Watson.

If you are holding an unfinished master clue in the bank, Watson will hold onto all 4 clues you have given him until you have finished or discarded the master clue you are holding. The player may also use the NPC Contact spell to check which types of clue they have given to Watson.

Players can receive additional clues of the same type as clues they currently have stored with Watson.

Watson's House has an upstairs portion that contains the Strange Casket which is used to fight The Mimic.

Watson's house also contains a noticeboard where players can view a list of the STASH units they have built and/or filled. For a fee of 500 coins, one can buy a blueprint so they can build a STASH unit tracker in their player-owned house's Study, which works just like Watson's noticeboard.

He owns a bloodhound named Gruff McScruff.
