Emote clues[edit | edit source]
Emote clues involve equipping certain items in a particular location and performing an emote. They were introduced to Treasure Trails on 5 December 2006. These types of clues are featured in easy, medium, hard, and master clue scrolls, and most (but not all) items required for the emote clues can be obtained in shops, although using the Grand Exchange is recommended. When determining an easy trail clue, there is a 25/99 chance for it to be a emote clue. For medium clue this chance is 20/99, for hard 25/109, and for master 25/100.
Once the emote has been performed, an NPC called Uri will appear and usually give the player a scroll box. If Uri is giving the player their reward rather than another clue, he will give the player a casket. If the player has been requested to do another emote before talking to Uri, and they forgot to do it, he will say, I don't believe we have any business... but will not leave. The player can then complete the second emote and finish the clue. Level 1 clues require doing one emote, level 2 clues require doing two, and level 3 and level 5 clues require doing one emote and fighting the double agent.
Many of the items asked for in these clues are obscure. The Grand Exchange is the simplest way to obtain them but often not the cheapest. As a result of demand by players doing treasure trails, most of these items have been driven up in price considerably above what they would be otherwise worth. In many cases, emote clue items may be bought from shops for considerably less money or even be made with little difficulty. Note that wearing any version of a required item different than the standard one will not work (for example, a rune platebody (t) will not work in place of a basic rune platebody).
For level 3 and level 5 clues, doing the emote will not summon Uri but instead an aggressive NPC known as the double agent, who must subsequently be killed in order for Uri to reappear. If an emote clue is the first clue given for one of these clue scrolls, there is a chance Uri will be summoned without the double agent. The player can change equipment to take out the double agent. Performing the emote again is no longer necessary as of the update released on 28 November 2016.
Items[edit | edit source]
If frequently doing treasure trails, the items should be stored in hidey-holes, located near the relevant sites, to save time and money, rather than selling and re-buying the items. A total of 170 items are used across the five clue levels, so banking them all is arguably unfeasible.
