Clue scroll detail
Crack the Clue! was a special clue-seeker event held over the course of four weeks during 2016, where map clues are released on an Old School RuneScape Forum post.
Over the course of the next four weeks we will be releasing four clues here on the forums. These clues will be solvable in game, allowing you to unlock one piece of a brand new set of cosmetic gear each week!

Once all four have been released, the information they provide can be combined to create a fifth, incredibly challenging clue. The first player to successfully solve this clue will be forever commemorated in game. All players who are able to complete the clue will also receive the fifth and final piece of equipment to complete the set!

However, this was an April Fools' Day joke, and the player would also receive the message "jk :P[sic]".
  • Upon completion of the final clue, the first player to have done so would have the examine of the helm of raedwald refer to their username. This player was Pikachu Yip.
