Wieldable tinderbox[edit source]

Used as a wieldable tinderbox maybe? Just speculating. :) --D E E J E 20:49, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Doubt it. Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 18:38, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Speculative images?[edit source]

Could someone tell us where both the images (inventory and detailed) come from?   az talk   08:42, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

I assume that inventory image comes from being able to search for it on quick chat. As for the detailed image, I don't even know how people get them normally. Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 08:46, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
The detailed images are taken from the Exchange price pages on Runescape.com. I've got no idea where the images come from here, though... ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  09:05, November 27, 2009 (UTC)
True, Telos, however, since this detailed image is not found on the GEDB, nor will it even be tradable (I'm 99% sure, as I'm 99% it's a reward for the Cryptic Clue Fest Lol, and we all know that holiday rewards aren't tradable!), it has to come from somewhere else... read my post below.

No one points of any significant evidence on this page that would support this item being the reward for the thanksgiving 2009 event, sounds like to me its just some random item jagex was fooling around with like they've done in the past, plus this has nothing to do with thanksgiving.

Sounds to be like this page is just a rumor.

This is a cryptic clue challenge right? Magnifying glass is usually related to crimes or mysteries.--Moneypony 19:39, November 27, 2009 (UTC)

Thats true, and I've just noticed that it was discovered the day the event started, must have missed that.

Certain images of magnify glasses (detailed images) could be found within the RuneScape cache. Star Find


The inventory image is from the leak found in a player's house, the magnifying glass is shown in your Toy Box, and this has not been fixed yet. Az, take time out to go check if you'd like before they patch it up (if they do).

The detailed image, I'm sure, is from the RuneScape Model Viewer, which we discussed here. I was in fact a main contributor to that conversation, as you remember. I found a model of a prototype of the dragon pickaxe. We reached consensus, which was to not use images from the RuneScape Model Viewer. Therefore, the "detailed" image of the magnifying glass should be speedy deleted. More proof that the detailed image is from RSMV is Serp883's video on youtube (skip to 1:20). If you need any more proof, just ask me, as I still have RSMV installed on my computer. Quest point cape.pngLil Diriz 77 Talk Summoning-icon.png 00:18, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Actually... wtf, now that I really look like it... the person who uploaded the detailed image must've drawn it in paint or something, because the model I found in RSMV (Model 50472) looks much more detailed, it actually looks like a RuneScape model instead of something I could do in Microsoft Paint in 5 minutes >_< Just ask if you'd like me to upload the magnifying glass to photobucket.

[[File:Magnifingglass.png|left|50px|A detailed view of the Magnifying glass.]]

I've decided to remove the detailed image for now... We will wait until the item is released before the detailed image is included in the article.   az talk   16:33, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

The item image is taken from the toy box, but I don't know the source of the detailed image and it bothers me. Detailed images from the Grand Exchange Database has a maximum size of 96x96 pixels, but this image is larger than that. So, I'm assuming that it is taken from RSMV. I've contacted the original uploader, so let's hope he/she helps clarify things...   az talk   16:46, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, that image was from RSMV, but sorry, i didn't realise that it was agreed not to use them. - Linker009

Why, that's alright Smile Quest point cape.pngLil Diriz 77 Talk Summoning-icon.png 20:22, November 28, 2009 (UTC)

Tradable[edit source]

How do you know if it is tradable?

It could be the phat of 2009!


-Compdude123 01:51, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Don't get your hopes up. Jagex hasn't introduced a "tradeable" rare for many years, and I don't expect one this week either. --Robert Horning 01:54, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
Any item that is in the toy chest is untradeble. --Linker009 04:43, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

Emote[edit source]

the magnifying glass has an emote when it is equieped and you right click on it and press slueth.Runite ore.png Toa vine Mining cape.png 17:03, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

its out already[edit source]

so why does the article still say all the speculative junk  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.142.67.219 (talk).

Hey, come on. Users at the RuneScape wiki are only human. Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 18:37, November 29, 2009 (UTC)
Jee, maybe it's because they don't have it yet, or they didn't know it was out? Or maybe it's because we have a policy of not deleting messages or discussions? Think things through before you post. Quest point cape.pngLil Diriz 77 Talk Summoning-icon.png 20:15, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

its out...[edit source]

its been out for a day ppl I got it 6 hours ago... yet you continue to delete when someone changes the speculative s***  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 74.75.142.225 (talk) on 19:07, November 29, 2009.

We know it's out. --Iiii I I I 00:27, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Sleuthing emote-emote page?[edit source]

Should we create a new page for the "Sleuth" emote? Or does it not count as a proper emote worthy of a page (a bit like "Play with" Eek.) -- ile:Runecrafter hat.png Helm360Talkhiscore Mithril bar.png 19:19, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Maybe on emote page, if it isn't all ready, other than that not sure might have to check if rubber chicken or kite or some such item with an emote has a page for it. Chaos knight 21:52, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

Discontinued[edit source]

Is it really discontinued yet? The event is still finishable. Mage24365 02:45, December 2, 2009 (UTC)

I think its kinda lame[edit source]

I think the Magnifying Glass is a pretty dinky reward after 4 days of clue solving.


--Oldman033 21:32, December 4, 2009 (UTC)Oldman033

Yeh, kind of. It got people asking me where I got it when I bought it at Rev hunting =9 Fishing.png NnK Oliver (600613) talk 22:21, December 4, 2009 (UTC)

It's a novelty. Just be glad you can obtain it whenever you want from Diango. Black cavalier.png Zenihdrol Tribal top (blue).png 07:07, December 5, 2009 (UTC)
