On Thursday, Jagex introduced its newest Old School Runescape (OSRS) Treasure Trails growth. The new upgrade is a sizable one adding a great deal of new challenges and features for beginners and veterans alike. While a large portion of the content targets beginning and free-to-play players, the devs also included changes to content for premium subscribers also. In the upgrade, fresh scrolls clue rewards are added, and the frequency by which Elite and Master puzzlers will experience the Mimic Boss has improved also. These are just a few of the many changes listed in the Treasure Trails upgrade patch notes. Below, we've compiled a complete overview of everything new and changed from the latest upgrade.
Among the biggest changes the Treasure Trails growth brings is the accession of newcomer clue scrolls. In the past, clue scrolls were only available for premium subscribers, but with the current update free-to-play players have access to a new pair of newcomer clue scrolls. The newest clues are a series of short 1-3 step clues that can be completed by any participant regardless of experience or membership. The new clues provide rewards for finishing them but seasoned players aren't required to finish beginner clues in order to acquire Watson's Master hints. You may check out our guide with all the new suggestion scroll options, here.
Apart from a new tutor, the update provides a segue from the X Marks the Spot Quest into Beginner Clue Scrolls. After the quest is finished, Veos will now reward players using a Beginner Clue Scroll, and direct them to talk to the new clue tutor to learn more about it. If you have already completed the quest, you will continue to have the ability to claim your Beginner Clue Scroll benefit from Veos. Stash units have been added around the free-to-play area for Beginner Clues that require items to be worn out.
Though traditional clue scrolls have included riddles anagrams and ciphers, beginners will experience a new type of clue scroll targeted at teaching them how to craft new items and equipment. These clues come from a homeless man in the game called Charlie. The final change added into the April OSRS update is that the annual Easter Event. As in the past, players are in for a pun-filled party of Spring. Throughout the event, players are tasked with helping the Easter Bunny gather components to fuel his egg-making machine. Players have to tread through the Easter bunny's burrow system to locate his helpers Eg, Egg and Eggy who will assist in locating the needed ingredients. Completing the event allows players to unlock all of the prior Easter holiday event benefits as well as some brand new ones.
