Elite Treasure Trails and New Rewards

Date: Oct/23/13 09:38:35 Views: 15

Treasure Trails have been given an improvement today with fiendish new challenges to test even the mightiest adventurer, but also many new rewards to tempt them. You may find that the likes of Bork, the Corporeal Beast and the Skeletal Horror (among others) now have a rare chance of dropping an elite clue scroll.

These clues are a step beyond what has gone before, whether it’s a scanning orb that only highlights the next clue when you’re standing near it, or a simple compass showing the direction of the next clue but not the distance. Even finding your next clue might not be so easy, as you may disturb a powerful follower of Guthix or end up racking your brains over one of the tricky new Celtic knot puzzles.

Stick with it, though, and you may be lucky enough to receive one of the 150+ new reward items! There are new bows, Third Age druidic gear, dragon masks, animal staves, kits to improve the look of dragon armour, and items for followers of Armadyl, Bandos and even Zar- (shh!)

Many of the new reward items are for the elite trails, but easy, medium and hard trails have had some added too. We’ve also added a mechanism to ensure that each and every treasure trail completed will reward you with at least one treasure trail-specific item, by introducing new items common to all levels of trails.

The cross-trail items include Saradomin, Guthix and Zamorak arrows (which have a chance of causing elemental damage and vanish on impact); single-use teleport scrolls to out-of-the-way places like Nardah and Miscellania; stackable biscuits that each restore one Prayer Point (plus a few life points); and existing items like sweets, torn pages and firelighters. Oh, and let’s not forget the meerkat summoning pouches, which will bring a cute little treasure-hunting familiar to your side...

Finally, we’ve introduced scroll boxes, which look different from caskets. This way, you can know for certain that opening a scroll box will always lead you to another clue scroll, and that when you do finally get a casket, you’ll know not to open it in a dangerous area, because it will always contain...TREASURE!
