Sealed clue scroll (hard) detail.png

Sealed clue scroll (hard) is part of the Treasure Trails Distractions and Diversion. Opening one will turn it into an active clue scroll (hard).

Hard difficulty clue scrolls are a random drop from a large variety of higher-level monsters. Looting a magical chest from the dwarven instinct aura, or unlocking silver key chests within the Shades of Mort'ton minigame can award hard clue scrolls. Stanley Limelight Traders sell hard clue scrolls for 45 thaler each. Alongside this, the Prosper perk allows players to gather hard clue scrolls while skilling.

Killing hellhounds or pickpocketing elven clan workers is an easy way to obtain a hard clue scroll. Using at least a tier 3 luck enhancer, such as a ring of fortune, increases the player's chance of finding a clue scroll, even from pickpocketing.

Players are able to hold a soft cap of 25 of each tier of sealed clue scroll.

Update history[edit | edit source]

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 23 July 2018 (Update):
    • Fixed an issue where the luck message for receiving a sealed clue scroll could be given even when you were already at your soft cap for that tier of clue.
  • patch 14 May 2018 (Update):
    • Sealed clue scroll objects can now be distributed through lootshare, with respect to each players' individual clue scroll soft cap.
  • patch 26 March 2018 (Update):
    • Fixed an issue where the luck message for receiving a sealed clue scroll could be given even when you were already at your soft cap for that tier of clue.
  • patch 19 March 2018 (Update):
    • Receiving a sealed clue scroll from opening a lower tier casket now bypasses the 25 soft cap limit.
  • hotfix 26 February 2018 (Update):
    • Loot beams now appear for sealed clue scrolls if the setting is enabled.
  • patch 26 February 2018 (Update):
    • A new set of options has been added to Gameplay settings under the heading 'Minigame settings'. The new options allow players to individually toggle whether they receive sealed clue scrolls from skilling or monster drops, and whether they see loot beams for clue scrolls. Guaranteed clue sources bypass this, such as the Aquarium, Skeletal Horror, Triskelion keys, or the Prosper perk.
    • Clue scrolls are now dropped or looted as a new object called a 'Sealed clue scroll (difficulty)', which stacks and gives a new clue scroll of the same tier when opened. Players can only have up to one clue of each tier active at any one time, as before. There is a soft cap of 25 on sealed clues for each tier, but guaranteed sources bypass this.
    • Players will be eligible to get one free sealed clue scroll on login from Zaida at the Treasure Trail hub by the Grand Exchange main entrance. The tier is decided based on the player's total level, ranging from easy to elite.
    • Sealed clue scrolls can now be obtained when Fishing, Mining, Woodcutting, or Diving, from most standard skilling activities. The tier of clue scroll players receive is weighted based on their level of the activity, with elites appearing at level 60 training methods and higher. There is always a 1% chance for a sealed elite clue to upgrade to a sealed master clue.
    • The Prosper perk still allows for an additional chance at a clue scroll while skilling, but now has a 1% chance of upgrading a sealed elite clue to a sealed master clue.
    • Treasure Trail caskets have new graphics, and are coloured to match their tier. Sealed clue scrolls also match this new colouring.
    • Drop options have been replaced with destroy options for all caskets, clue scrolls, challenge scrolls, scroll boxes, puzzle boxes and keys. Where applicable, the destroy message will indicate where to reclaim the item; however, in most cases the item cannot be reclaimed.
  • update 26 February 2018 (Update):
    • Sealed clue scrolls are added to the game with the clue scroll overhaul.
