Elite clues are the highest level clue scrolls only obtained by killing certain high-level monsters. A list of all Clue scrolls (elite) droppers can be found on the Basics and FAQ Page. Elite clue scrolls are completely different from the lower level scrolls because they are the only scrolls to contain the following three clue types. You will not find these types below as any other level of clue scroll.
Orb clue scrolls only include a vague area the casket it is contained in. It will then give you an amount of paces around where the treasure is buried. This amount of paces equals the amount of land around the treasure that the attached scanning orb will work at.
In order to solve an Orb scan clue, you must enter the area the clue indicates and choose the scan option with the orb clue. Once you scan for the casket inside the provided scanning radius, a large yellow arrow will begin flashing to show you where to dig. Should you be at the right location, but on on the wrong level (e.g. the location is underground while you are above ground), you will get a message saying "Try scanning a different level."

Compass clues provide you with an arrow pointing to the direction of the casket, but it does not give any indication of the distance. To solve a compass clue you must simply move in the direction the compass is pointing. Once you arrive at the right spot to dig, the arrow turns into a cross. Known compass locations can be found in the tables below.
With a Celtic Knot puzzle, you will have to move three tracks (blue, grey and red) until every intersection has a matching rune on the top and bottom of the interlacing tracks. When two of the same runes are on top of each other because the rune is the same on both intersecting tracks, a green ring will appear on the rune. A red ring means there are different runes on two intersecting tracks. The goal of this puzzle is to have green rings at every intersection. Below are a view visual examples in the form of an image and a video which will help you understand the puzzle enough to solve it.
You can move the tracks clockwise or anticlockwise by clicking on the relevant arrow. Once all intersections have matching runes, press 'Unlock' and you will have completed the puzzle.
An unfinished and a finished puzzle
Log out to reset the puzzle, if necessary.
Use the 'Invert Paths' button by hovering over it to view what is on the track beneath the visible track.
Do not look at all the tracks at a time. This will make the puzzle seem too difficult. If you focus on getting two tracks to line up correctly first, then it won't take much to match up the third track.
You can use trial and error, or the "brute force method" to solve this puzzle. Keep the grey track locked in place and keep cycling through on another track until all intersections match up. If this doesn't work, continuing by moving the grey track one place ahead then cycling through the other track once more. Eventually, this will solve the puzzle for you. Then simply move the cycle through the final track until the intersections turn to green rings. To see this method in practical use, please refer to the video below.

**Note: Like the slider puzzles, you MUST complete your puzzle before you log out. If you log out of the game before you finish it, any progress you've made on solving it will be lost. The puzzle always resets itself when you log out of the game. When you finish your puzzle, click Unlock immediately. Remember to do this BEFORE you log out!
A Guthix Wizard is a foe you only encounter on Elite treasure trails. These may appear when you dig at a compass or scan location, as mentioned above. A Guthix Wizard can use all three combat styles (melee, ranged and magic), however will use the one you are most vulnerable to. For example, if you wear armour with high magic defence (such as Armadyl) and pray protection against ranged, he will melee you.
When meleeing, he will attack with a poisoned dragon dagger, inflicting a poison that starts off doing 70 damage. When ranging, he will use rune knives. When maging, he will use Claws of Guthix. Many players prefer to tackle these wizards by using melee armour and praying protection against magic, however some suggest using magic defensive armour combined with protection from melee. The Guthix Wizard you encounter in dangerous areas like the Wilderness or the Chaos Tunnels, is level 126, and the one encountered elsewhere is level 133.
