New Clue[edit source]

Err, sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place, I'm a wiki noob =P

I got a Level 2 clue:

"Cry in Catherby archery shop.

Bow or curtsey before you talk to me.

Equip a round red and black snelm,

a hard leather body and an

unblessed silver sickle."

I believe its new?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by SwiftrTaylor (talk) on 10:08, 6 August 2010 (UTC).

I believe from what I've read on the RuneScape forums, items needed for some Clue Scroll's are now slightly random (selected from a list of several items), I've also had something similar.

- TLKit 13:39, August 8, 2010 (UTC).

i found this:

Beckon in the Digsite, near the eastern winch. Bow or curtsy before you talk to me. Equip a pointed red and black snelm, snakeskin boots, and an iron pickaxe.

its very similar to another one, is that snelm a blood'n'tar snelm btw? Pryon 18:02, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

Wow[edit source]

Since when did this page go so far downhill? It used to be as short and concise as possible. I think we should remove all of the superfluous information about how to obtain common items such as armor and just make it a wiki link if someone does not know where to get them. This will clean up this page a lot and lower the size of this page. It was already a big page to begin with without all of the unneeded and long-winded explanations that were added. If you support me making this article much shorter and more concise please post support below. Once I get a few I will go through the entire document and do some additional editing (I have already removed some of it). -Sardaukar857 18:14, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

Yes please. (wszx) 20:47, 6 August 2010 (UTC)

Pages[edit source]

I think Treasure Trails Guide and Full Treasure Trails Guide overlap a lot and information can be cut out, I suggest a page called Treasure Trails Guide (what to do when you get them, what coordinates mean, how to do puzzle boxes etc) and Treasure Trails Locations (coordinates, scans, puzzle solutions etc). I also think having scrambled and solved pictures for the puzzle boxes isn't necessary. PikachuMayhem 18:53, August 9, 2010 (UTC)

Agree about overlap. Disagree about un/solved puzzle pictures. Not everyone already knows what they look like. We need to provide information for new people and not just veterans. Mamabear47 17:25, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Not sure where this would be catagorized and can't find answer[edit source]

"The cheapes water for miles around, but they react badly to religious icons."

I am pretty sure this is Nardah but I don't know what to do there. I talked to almost every one there including water salesman, prayed at the shrine and searched boxes, crates, and bannana trees. Does anyone know what I need to do and where to put the answer?

Darth Paramecium 16:36, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Try the Bandit Camp. I'm not sure where their water would be, perhaps the bar, but they definitely react badly to religious icons, seeing how if you're wearing some sort of God item, they attack you. :P sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 16:37, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
I just got that same answer on the RS forums, I was so focused on Nardah I didn't try to think of other posibilities. Does any one know what page the answer to this clue scroll should be. Darth Paramecium 16:45, August 18, 2010 (UTC)
The answer is already on this page. Maybe you typed it wrong when searching or something. :( Riblet15 16:48, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

Compass location groups[edit source]

Is there any reason in particular why the compass locations are grouped into southwest, southeast, etc? I think it would be much more useful if grouped into runescape regions: Agarnia, kandarin, morytania, etc Henneyj 23:29, August 30, 2010 (UTC)

hi[edit source]

hihihihihihiihihihihiihihiihiihihiiihihihihihui wiki is awesome 17:50, September 22, 2010 (UTC)

Chart, sextant and watch absolutely required for coordinate clues?[edit source]

Would it work to just dig in the spot the coordinate is without having a watch, sextant and chart or are they absolutely needed else you can't get the next clue? Because, I'm digging at the exact same spot the person is shown in the picture in the guide, but it isn't working. XJoMan112x 00:05, February 6, 2011 (UTC)

You absolutely need them otherwise you won't find anything. Cortanakya 15:03, February 13, 2011 (UTC)

New coordinate[edit source]

I found a new coordinate: 15 degrees 48 minutes north, 13 degrees 52 minutes east

Any clues? 17:23, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

I have a new one as well: 16 degrees 20 minutes north, 12 degrees 45 minutes east. I'm working on figuring mine out now. Dsctatom 22:38, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

Handled mine. Yours is roughly where the old clue on top of Edgar's cave on Trollheim was. Dsctatom 22:58, March 15, 2011 (UTC)

And another new coordinate :/

04 degrees 41 minutes north, 03 degrees 09 minutes west 23:30, March 16, 2011 (UTC)

I have the 27 paces on Mos Le'Harmless, and all the places that have pictures on here is not it :( could screen shots be taken for the rest of the locations that dont have pictures?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 22:32, 9 May 2011 (UTC).

Once you find it, how bout you upload it? (; sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 22:34, May 9, 2011 (UTC)

Neitiznot-Jatizso clue group?[edit source]

I do not see the Neitiznot/Jatizso clue group on the Compass page. Am I missing it? If wiki needs it, I'll add that I almost got my tail kicked because Another Fansite (*cough*) did not include the Jatizso northeast mine area on their list of possibilities.. Scroll reads "This scroll will work on the Fremennik Isles of Jatizso and Neitiznot. Orb scan range: 16 paces." >.> Pokemama 02:23, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

What if we can't equipt a certian item?[edit source]

What do we do if we arent a high enough level to equipt something, but it is required to equipt the item? what do we do?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 16:43, 9 June 2011 (UTC).

Start leveling. (: sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 16:44, June 9, 2011 (UTC)
but i hate ranging!!!! lol  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 17:05, 9 June 2011 (UTC).
You could also drop the clue and wait for another one if you really don't want to level to complete the treasure trail. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 17:22, June 9, 2011 (UTC)

Guthix wizards[edit source]

Some scans mention that Guthix wizards may attack, and some do not. Do some scans have the chance to trigger the wizards and some do not? I have removed instances of mentions of "No Guthix wizard" or "A Guthix wizard may attack" and "A Guthix wizard will attack", as clue trailers should be aware of them throughout any of these clues anyway. Meow! ChainChomp2 (Talk) Runecrafting! 19:28, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Wrong Cooridinate?[edit source]

With the 00.20 S 23.15 E clue, i stood exactly where the guy in the pic stood, but i never got anything when i dug at that spot. Is that pic correct, or am i doing something wrong? Dragon scimitar.png Candle Max Dragon claw.png 08:44, June 29, 2011 (UTC)

New Clue Scroll[edit source]

There is a New Person to talk to on Clue Scroll help me figure out who this is please!!

This Anagram receals who to speak to next:


who is this please Help 19:36, July 23, 2011 (UTC)

That's not "P. AK MI" that's "R. AK MI". The anagram is "Kamir" and he is the kebab seller in Al Kahrid. -- NO MERCY FOR THE NOOBMASSES 18:32, July 26, 2011 (UTC)

Caroline[edit source]

For this NPC, the guide states that the answer is 0 after Salt in the Wound, 11 before. However, I haven't yet done this quest and the answer is still 0. Presumably, it changes at some other point after another quest. Or this is a glitch. Egdcltd 16:30, August 21, 2011 (UTC)

I saw the same thing today. I have completed Kennith's Concerns but not yet started Salt in the Wound and the answer was 0. I took the boat over to the fishing platform and sure enough only Jeb and the cook were there. 03:11, 9 December 2020 (UTC)

Morytania Compass[edit source]

Hi all! I have a new Morytania Compass clue location, but it's a strange one. It's trying to send me into an area that there's absolutely no access for. I don't know if this is a glitch in the clue scroll, or whether I just don't know where it's really trying to send me. Here's a screenshot of the area it's trying to put me in:


I've tried from every angle, but I just can't get in there. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!--Darkdeath19 17:22, August 21, 2011 (UTC)Darkdeath19

It was accessible before the graphical updates to Morytania. An oversight by Jagex. You should submit a bug report or post on the forums or something. User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 17:26, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
You're fabulous, thank you for the quick response and the help! I submitted a bug report immediately, so hopefully there's some response. In the meantime, this clue gets stashed in the bank. Thank you again! --Darkdeath19 17:31, August 21, 2011 (UTC)
No problem! Smile User_talk:Fswe1 Fswe1 Brassica Prime symbol.png 18:15, August 21, 2011 (UTC)

Out of curiosity, how did one access the area before the graphics update rendered it inaccessible? --Darkdeath19 20:59, October 21, 2011 (UTC)

Help[edit source]

So I got a medium clue scroll from a guard and did a bunch of stuff then I got the coordanants that lead to south of taverly I stood in the exact same place as the guy I dug and it said nothing interesting happens I did that for 20 freaking minutes and still came up with nothing! Please help me someone! I really want to finish it.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 01:52, 19 October 2011 (UTC).

you need to have your sextant chart and watch with you otherwise you cant find the coordinate clues. --Henneyj 02:06, October 19, 2011 (UTC)

Help[edit source]

Can't find 1 degrees 50 minutes north, 24 degrees, 0 minutes east. Can someone help?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 00:23, 30 December 2011 (UTC).

Doesn't look like we have it in the guide, so you may be on your own. Looks like its somewhere in lummy swamp. Is it a treasure trail clue or something else that uses coordinates? --Henneyj 01:08, December 30, 2011 (UTC)

Witchaven cryptic clue[edit source]

I'm having trouble with the Cryptic clue in Witchaven. On the Fishing platform, in the specified shack, the crate where the next clue is supposed to be in is empty for me, and i have the clue scroll with me to let the crate have the next clue inside. I'm wondering if having Salt In The Wound unfinished is creating an instance where the crate remains empty?  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 04:03, 2 January 2012 (UTC).

The coordinates for Green Spider Island[edit source]

I've dug all around that area and have come up with nothing.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Silvercell (talk) on 02:26, 7 January 2012 (UTC).

New elite clue[edit source]

I uploaded a picture and put it in Elite Clues, I am new to editing so if someone could fix it for me, it is the Melzars Maze compass clue, Daethman7  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Daethman7 (talk) on 23:52, 21 June 2012 (UTC).

New clue (medium) map[edit source]

Medium Clue scroll map

Anyone know where this might be? I've looked and looked at the world map, and I cannot find where this building next to water might be.  Sal  21:35, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

Chemist's house in Rimmington. I will rename the file accordingly. Also, please template your signature. Small recharge gem.png AnselaJonla Slayer-icon.png 22:23, July 4, 2012 (UTC)

Content menu shouldn't autohide[edit source]

What it says on the title. The menu should stay open by default since it's the easiest way to navigate the page to the desired guide section.  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) on 04:46, 16 August 2012 (UTC).

East Karamja clue[edit source]

The clue at 01 degrees 18 minutes south, 14 degrees 15 minutes east (which is on the east side of karamja) has a Shaikahan prowling around the area. Anyone who runs to that area to dig is very likely to be attacked. Should it be considered a fight? --Lord Daedraconian (talk) 09:34, November 2, 2012 (UTC)

ToC[edit source]

The "Table of Contents" part is missing from the article.

It had existed some month before (see in the previous versions).

It is hard to search for cryptics without it! 14:05, November 27, 2012 (UTC)

The ToC is working perfectly fine. Please check your connection, or try reloading the page, as it appears after the page has fully loaded. Hope it helps. --Alchez 14:10, November 27, 2012 (UTC)

Broken links to pictures.[edit source]

They say "The deletion and move log for this page are provided here for convenience:

Compass - Seer's village[edit source]


None of the pictures are at this location, and the one that is missing is "At the centre of Seer's Village". I'm pretty sure that location isn't the center, so what should I call the location?--Jlun2 (talk) 09:43, April 30, 2013 (UTC)

Nexus update[edit source]

update since the nexus was put in the lumby swamp: (00.30N,24.16E) is now (00.50N,24.16E)

needs a new picture and such, it is five steps north of Ysondria, two steps west.  wish i had the ability to add a photo of location and such, but i can't, sorry. good luck whoever is a better wiki editor than i! 05:47, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

Emote clue not working[edit source]

I reread the clue so many times yet when I do the emote "Panic" it doesn't work. The clue:

"Panic by the pilot on White Wolf Mountain.

Beware of double agents!

Equip mithril platelegs, a ring of life, and a rune hatchet."

I really don't understand why it's not working. I'm equiping the platelegs, ring, and hatchet, but its not doing anything when I panic. I'm at the right mountain because I checked the map and took the gnome glider there (so I'm standing next to the pilot). Is there something I'm doing wrong. 02:19, 17 June 2013 (UTC)Unmocked

Maybe you're not standing in the right spot? sssSp7p.pngIjLCqFF.png 02:20, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
I had this clue yesterday and it worked fine for me. I always stand 1 square north of the gnome pilot. IP83.101.44.209 (talk) 05:48, June 17, 2013 (UTC)
This worked for me like a charm standing only one square north. Thanks so much! 14:14, June 17, 2013 (UTC)Unmocked

Please edit the image for 00 deg., 50 min. north, 24 deg., 16 min. east[edit source]

The current pic for:

00 degrees, 50 minutes north

24 degrees, 16 minutes east (For me, it was "15 minutes east," regardless of how in the clue it said 16 degrees east.")

I think it's outdated, and I had problems looking for it myself using the current pic that's with it in the wiki.  So I made my own:

Puzzle box clue[edit source]

Hi guys. Regarding TT, I am currently on a hard trail. So, I've completed the puzzle box Zenesha gave me but upon completion I went and talk to her. She doesn't acknowledge that I've completed the puzzle box and instead offers to sell me armour. I don't know what to do and if I log out the puzzle box will reset. Help anyone? 04:18, January 7, 2015 (UTC)

New (easy) clue[edit source]

I found the following (easy) clue: "A crate found in the tower of a church is your next location." Couldn't find this one with ctrl+F while searching for "church" or "a crate found", so I suppose this one's not on the list. I don't know yet which place is meant... 14:57, April 19, 2015 (UTC) QueenOvNoobs

New Map Clue?[edit source]

New Map Clue?

Zamorak Wizards remaining that are confirmed[edit source]

Lord Iorwerth cryptic after Plague's End?[edit source]

Is there any confirmation as to whether the "There is no worthier lord" clue is still doable after Plague's End? Like for instance, would it direct you to speak to Iestin Edern instead since he becomes the new Lord Iorwerth? Cheers. -- Chilled Socks 22:14, December 16, 2016 (UTC)

I went ahead and added it to the guide, thanks for the image :) In future it would be helpful if you say what kind of clue you got when submitting - I assumed this was a compass clue since there are no scans in the area, I hope that's right?

I've moved this to the proper place in the discussion (seriously, how do you expect to get an answer if you bury your message in the middle of the page?), and removed the image link. Thank you, but we already have the new coordinate image, and you shouldn't upload an image purely for use on a talk page. So I have removed it.

Can someone add that you can teleport to Braindead island with Hoardstalker_ring to this clue: "You will need to wash the old ash off your spade when you dig here, but the only water nearby is stagnant." Thank you, 13:31, September 13, 2017 (UTC)

Anagram Arc O Line answer[edit source]

The anagram "Arc O Line" claims that the answer is 0 after Salt in the Would, but my answer was 0 and I have yet to complete Salt in the Wound. Mistake? Or chance of it being either before Salt in the Wound and only being 0 after starting and/or finishing Salt in the Wound? X3you4zl (talk) 19:26, 5 February 2019 (UTC)

Now that we have subpages, what level of detail do we have in the main page?[edit source]

For reference, the need for subpages arose due to the interactive map extension causing extra strain on the Lua server - causing timeouts. Moving to subpages meant that the server wouldn't time out for the one big page.

Now that we have multiple subpages (one per region: Misthalin, Asgarnia, Morytania, etc.) we should have a consensus on the level of detail that the main Treasure Trails/Guide/Compass page has. Should it link to every area in every region (in Asgarnia: Burthorpe, Falador, Goblin Village, etc., in The Arc: Aminishi, Cyclosis, etc.), or just link to the region (and with each, their subpage)?

To compare the two versions as previous edits:

[2] Link per region

[3] Link per area per region

[4] What it used to be before moving to subpages (for complete transparency)

I find #1 the most readable, even if #2 is the closest to what it was before (#3) and provides everything in a single page-search function (Ctrl+F/Cmd+F). I propose that we either go back to #1 because it is the most readable, or change #2 so that it is easier to read and navigate. Currently the `Locations` section for #2 is a massive list of 70 links, whereas the list for #1 is just 12. If it was left at #2, I would think the Table of Contents at the top to be more useful than the locations section itself.

While I'd like to hear anyone's comments on this, I would especially love to hear from User:MrDew and User:Thingummywut, since you've both been apart of editing the Treasure Trails/Guide/Compass page since it was edited to have subpages.

Sir Veylantz (talk) 23:42, 22 April 2020 (UTC)

I must be in the minority who actually uses this page for every single compass clue I complete. I will not be able to use the page at all if I can't at least search the locations, so I require at least #2. #3 would be even better. Having to navigate to separate articles for each clue is very cumbersome. Thingummywut (talk) 23:45, 22 April 2020 (UTC)
