Treasure trails are one of things in RuneScape that will give you hours of fun. You don't have the slightest idea what kind of treasure you'll get, or when you'll get it. If you like adventures, be sure to do some treasure trails. Treasure trails are members only, but some of the rewards can be used by both F2P'ers and P2P'ers.
Due to the massive amount of content involved with Treasure Trails, information has been grouped by clue scroll type.

Which Type of Clue do I have?
If you do not know which type of clue you have, we have provided a brief definition of each type of clue scroll available:
- Anagram: Anagram clues look like gibberish, but sometimes it can look like a strange phrase as well. These clues are actually the names of different non-player characters that you see around RuneScape that have had their letters mixed up.
- Challenges: These clues are often simple math equations or a task telling you to count certain objects in RuneScape.
- Coordinates: When you get a coordinates clue, it will say something like "04 degrees, 13 minutes North, 12 degrees, 45 minutes East". These clues require you to have a watch, sextant and chart in your inventory.
- Elite: Clue scrolls (elite) have three exclusive clue types that will only appear at this level scroll. You have an elite clue scroll if:
- nothing but a compass appears as the clue (Magic Compass)
- an orb is attached to your clue (Orb Scan)
- a puzzle with runes on three different tracks is on the scroll (Celtic Knot). See the Puzzle page for assistance with this one.
- Uri’s Emotes: You know you have this clue when you get a scroll that asks you to wear a variety of strange clothes, go to a specific area and perform an emote.
- Maps: Map clues are easy to identify. They are actual drawn maps with an X marking where you must dig. There may also be a series of steps to take marked on the map.
- NPC Locations: NPCs, or Non-Player Characters, are the people who show up as yellow dots on your minimap. Some clues tell you to speak with one of the many NPCs in RuneScape.
- Puzzles: There are two types of puzzles. One is a sliding puzzle which requires that you slide different squares around one at a time in order to unscramble a picture. Another type of puzzle is the Celtic knot, where you must align runes in order to unlock your next task.
- Riddles: Riddle clues require you to figure out the true meaning of a strange phrase. They often require that you have a decent knowledge of RuneScape and the people within.
- Search: Search clues are simple clues that say, for example, “Crate, Burthorpe”. They only state a searchable thing like a sack, a chest or even drawers and then a vague location within RuneScape.
