Clue scroll (elite) detail.png

A clue scroll (elite) is the second highest tier clue scroll after the clue scroll (master) in the Treasure Trails Distraction and Diversion, in which a player follows a series of clues leading towards a buried treasure. They are obtained upon opening a sealed clue scroll (elite). Elite clue scrolls are between 5 to 7 clues long (4 to 6 with the Totem of Treasure).[1] When an elite clue scroll is dropped, there is a 1% chance that a clue scroll (master) is dropped instead.

Completion of the clue scroll will either give a scroll box (elite), containing another clue, a puzzle casket (elite), or a reward casket (elite), containing rewards for completing the treasure trail. Elite clue scroll rewards can range from a few thousand coins to well over 5 billion coins if a very rare third-age or blood dye is obtained.
