Maps[edit | edit source]

Map clues include an image of the location the player needs to search to advance along their trail. Maps are found in easy, medium, and hard clue scrolls. When determining an easy trail clue, there is a 25/99 chance for it to be a map clue, for medium clue this chance is 20/99, and for hard 25/109.[1] They are rough pictures of a very local area, normally about the size of Lumbridge Castle. If the map leads to an X, the player needs to take a spade to the place indicated on the map with the X and dig there. Any game square in the three-by-three area centered around the marked square can be used for this. The spade on a tool belt will work, contrary to popular belief, as right-clicking on the scroll gives a "dig" option. The spade is available on the tool belt by default for newly created accounts. If the map leads to a crate, it must be searched. Sometimes players may find a small pile of crates or a multitude of them. Search all of them until the next clue or the reward is found. Maps can include landmarks, such as buildings, fish to indicate fishing spots, roads, rivers, bridges, and other things. Map clues are not easy to do without help. Players will often find that they simply have no clue where the map is pointing to. A player can try to compare the maps to the world map, and they match up very well, but the area to compare is vast. It is easier to use the list below.

Digging in the location pointed to by a map clue will never produce a Saradomin or Zamorak Mage, even for master clue scrolls.

Map clues that take a player to the Wilderness (only on Hard clue scrolls) have a far lower chance of appearing. This is due to the Wilderness and Free Trade Vote.

List of clues[edit | edit source]

Following is a list of all known map clues with the exact locations they lead to. To make it easier to find the clue needed, it has been split up into categories.
