Hello everyone,

This week's update brings about the final level of clue scrolls - Master clues! With this, we have many new rewards, clue steps, STASH units and more. The update also contains many bug fixes and QOL updates to hold everyone down while we work on OSRS's latest update, The Nightmare of Ashihama.

Keep an eye out for more information regarding The Nightmare, and enjoy this update in the meantime :)

  • Client name drawing fixes:
    • When drawing friend/clan names on a tile with many players, it would try to draw all of them and be very hard to read.
      • The client will now only draw the first player on that tile, ignoring the rest.
    • Clicking random settings will no longer toggle the 'Show friendly names' option.
    • 'Show friendly names' colours have been adjusted to better match the RuneLite plugin.
  • Chambers of Xeric QoL:
    • The amount of kindling you can receive per swing is now determined by your woodcutting level. Starting at level 1 Woodcutting you can receive 1 kindling per swing, at 24 Woodcutting you can receive 2 kindling. The amount of kindling per swing goes up by 1 for every 12 Woodcutting levels after 24 Woodcutting.
    • For example, at level 99 Woodcutting you'll receive 8 kindling per chop.
  • Bug fixes:
    • The Netiznot face guard now requires 70 defence to equip.
    • Fixed a bug where Zuk tasks would be assigned in 3-35 kills, and Kalphite queen would be assigned as a 1 kill task.
    • Players will no longer get clue hunter duplicate items.
    • Fixed a bug where picking up noted zamorak wines in the wilderness would cause them to not visually disappear off the ground.
    • The Saradomin Crozier now has the proper alch value and is tradable.
    • The zombie head can now be equipped properly.
    • Added the proper attack interface for the Scythe of Vitur.
    • The attack styles are as follows:
    • Reap: Attack and Hitpoints experience, Slash style
    • Chop: Strength and Hitpoints experience, Slash style
    • Jab: Strength and Hitpoints experience, Crush style
    • Block: Defence and Hitpoints experience, Slash style
    • Dagannoth Prime’s max hit has been increased to 50 damage if the player doesn’t have protect from magic up.
    • Fixed Twisted horns combining to form the Slayer helmet.
    • Fixed a bug where players would sometimes get duplicate steps on clue scrolls.
    • Fixed a bug where 2 Snape grass spawns on hobgoblin isle wouldn’t count towards the achievement.
    • Fixed a bug that allowed Uber donators to do the zuk inferno training.
    • Fixed a bug where you weren't previously able to remove/add an item from the overlay list if you were holding shift.
    • Centred the friendly name overlay.
    • Changed the oak tree easy contract requirements from 45 to 65 Farming.
      • Fixed a bug where transferring an item to a player who logged off would cause the item to disappear.
    • Iban's staff (u) will no longer delete runes if you have them in your inventory.
    • Fixed a bug where infernal training would count towards tzkal-zuk or tztok-jad tasks.
    • Fixed a bug where Lizardman shamans would hit you after they died if they did a jump attack just before they died.
    • Konar Lizardman canyon tasks will now count for Lizardmen in the east canyon.
    • Fixed a bug where removing a pet from your menagerie without a full inventory would cause you to lose it.
    • The gilded 2h sword animations have been fixed, and now requires 40 attack to equip.
    • Shifted the graphics for the staff of dead special attack so that the head is above the player as intended.
    • The right-click trade options on the Estate agent have been re-added.
    • Collection log fixes:
      • Infinity boots have been added to the Mage arena collection log.
      • A duplicate Gnomish firelighters in the Medium clue log has been removed.
      • The Zalcano killcount was not being properly displayed.
      • The Zulrah killcount was not being properly displayed.
    • Item overlay quest scroll bug:
      • If you opened the overlay interface, and then opened another interface that also uses the quest scroll (Achievement progress interface) it would sometimes be bugged and show the names of your blocked items. This has been fixed.

Quality of life:

  • Changed the hide-pet option to still show the options for pets instead of completely hiding them, but will prioritize other non-hidden options instead.
  • Clue scroll caskets are now stackable.


  • When typing ;;gamble, a warning message will be sent telling you to familiarize yourself with the rules on ;;topic 53293 before gambling.
  • Receiving rare loot from Implings (eg. 3rd age) will now update your Collection log with the new items.

Master clue scrolls:

  • Players can now obtain and complete master clue scrolls.
  • Each player can only have 1 master clue scroll on their accounts at any given time, so unlike the other clue scrolls, they cannot be stacked.
  • As a consequence, this means players can now drop/empty the clues they cannot complete, and once they get a new one, it’ll be a new random clue step.
  • The possible rewards from master clues can are as follows:
  • The miscellaneous rewards can all be found in through the following link:
  • https://oldschool.ru...casket_(master)
  • The amounts are generally the same, with some discrepancies.

[*]​The rare drop table contains the following items:

  • Godsword ornament kits
  • Demon masks(except black demon mask)
  • Kourend hoods
  • Robes of darkness
  • Left eye patch
  • Obsidian cape®
  • Half-moon specs
  • Fancy tiara
  • Bowl wig
  • Dragon platebody ornament kit
  • Twisted relic hunter t3
  • Twisted cane
  • Twisted banner
  • Twisted blueprints
  • Swift blade
  • Guthixian icon
  • Armadyl/bandos/seren/ancient/brassica halos
  • Merfolk trident

[*]The mega rare table:

  • This table contains all 3rd age items, including a chance to get Druidic Third Age.
    • Druidic third age has been removed from the elite drop table as a consequence, since it always belonged on the master drop table.
  • We’ve also added a few custom items to the mega rare drop table:
    • Wise old mans staff
    • Crystal grail
    • 3rd age ring
    • Bow-sword
    • Rain bow
    • Shaman mask

[/list][*]Obtaining Master Clues:

  • There are 2 ways to obtain master clues in-game:
    • Speak to Watson, and provide him with 1 of each clue tier(easy, medium, hard, elite), and he will give you a master clue scroll.
    • Players can store the 4 clue scrolls with Watson, however he won’t give you a master clue scroll if you already have one.
  • Players can also obtain master clues from doing regular clues.
    • The rates for obtaining a master clue are as follows:
    • Easy clue scrolls: 1/50 chance
    • Medium clue scrolls: 1/30 chance
    • Hard clue scrolls: 1/15 chance
    • Elite clue scrolls: 1/5 chance

[/list]STASH units expansion:

  • 4 new STASH units have been added due to the expansion of master clues.
    • Zul-Andra STASH unit:
    • Stores the Dragon 2h sword, Bandos boots, and Obsidian cape.
    • Requires level 88 construction to use.
  • Varrock palace STASH unit:
    • Stores a Zamorak Godsword.
    • Requires level 88 construction to use.
  • Soul Altar STASH unit:
    • Stores a Dragon pickaxe, Helm of Neitiznot, and Rune boots.
    • Requires level 88 construction to use.
  • Catacombs STASH unit:
    • Stores an Arclight and Amulet of the Damned.
    • Requires level 88 construction to use.

Twisted blueprints:

  • You can now unlock the Twisted house style using Twisted blueprints!
  • These blueprints are tradable, and you can retrieve the blueprints by changing your house style to any other style. (the blueprints will be re-added to your inventory)

Staff of balance:

  • This item can now be created by attaching a Guthixian Icon to the staff of the death.
  • It has the same stats and special attack as the staff of the dead.
  • Players wielding it are able to cast Claws of Guthix.

Vote shop additions:

  • Inferno training ticket:
  • When used on Tzhaar-ket-keh, this will allow players to take part in inferno training starting at wave 68.
  • Completing the inferno in training does not provide any slayer experience, infernal cape, Tokkul, or kildcount.
  • The cost of this ticket is 400 vote points.

Clue scroll changes:

  • Clue scrolls of Easy/Medium/Hard/Elite tier can now only be obtained if the player doesn’t currently have that clue scroll tier on their account.
  • For example, if a player has 1 or more Elite clue scrolls on their account, they will not be able to obtain another one.
  • There are multiple reasons for this change:
  • We want to encourage players to do their clue scrolls as they get them, instead of hoarding many clue scrolls in their banks.
  • We want to add consistency with how master clues are.
  • We want to eventually integrate a system that will allow players to destroy their clue scrolls that have steps they can’t complete so that they can get new ones.
  • For this to be possible, the multiple-scroll system will need to be phased out.

Clue scroll drop changes/additions:

  • Impling changes:
    • Ninja implings now have a 1/25 chance of giving a Hard clue scroll.
    • Magpie implings now have a 1/50 chance of giving a Hard clue scroll.
    • Nature implings now have a 1/100 chance of giving a Hard clue scroll.
    • Eclectic implings now have a 1/25 chance of giving a Medium clue scroll.
    • Essence implings now have a 1/50 chance of giving a Medium clue scroll.
    • Earth implings now have a 1/100 chance of giving a Medium clue scroll.
    • Gourmet implings now have a 1/25 chance of giving an Easy clue scroll.
    • Young implings now have a 1/50 chance of giving a Easy clue scroll.
    • Baby implings now have a 1/100 chance of giving a Easy clue scroll.
  • Players now have an uncommon chance to get an elite clue scroll from the chambers of xeric.
    • This will not lower your chance to get a rare drop, and will only replace a resource drop.
  • Players now have an uncommon chance to get an elite clue scroll from the Theatre of Blood.
    • This will not lower your chance to get a rare drop, and will only replace a resource drop.​

Herblore Skillcape perk:

  • This perk allows players to make unfinished potions with grimy herbs while their Herblore cape or equivalent Max/Completionist cape is equipped.
  • Players will still receive the experience for cleaning the grimy herb when mixing it into the unfinished potion.

Website updates:

  • Discord widget:
  • Gone are the days where the Discord app must be open to stay up to date! If you prefer to use the forum, you'll now have a Discord orb in the bottom right corner of the homepage and forum index page which allows you to stay connected without having the Discord app open.

As always, please report any bugs that you run into immediately :)

Great update!  Is the Inferno training ticket used up after 1 training attempt?  Does it give you a set amount of time to train like with boss instances?  I'd hate to save up 400 vote points, lag @ start, and die before getting any actual training experience in. 


Edit: Maybe not so great update.  The update screwed up my house.  My very rare skotizo display is now a sire display.  My cerberus display is now a kalphite queen display.  My zulrah display is now my kraken display.  And my kraken display is now just an empty display.  My obelisk also got turned into a grotesque guardian display.

@Omicron Thanks for the nice list of bug fixes and QOL updates.  Sadly even though you made this clue scroll update I still may not have the motivation to do them.


Looking forward to the next update.  Keep up the good work.
