Introduction:
 
This is a guide I wrote on the RSOF forums back in November 2013. It goes through what I do when I complete hard and elite clues including suggested requirements that are helpful to have in order to get clues done faster!

 
Disclaimer: This is in no way the absolute best "efficient" method for clue hunting but it's close enough ;).
 
There is also a very handy tip involving Coordinates + Notes so you can look up hard coordinates with ease - (check out the Hard Clues section for more info).

 

So if you're getting into clue hunting, these are ideally the best monsters to kill although you may have your own preferences i.e getting through PVM or Slayer.

 

Best Clue Droppers:
Hard: hellhounds
Elites: Male Jadinkos
 
Skilling:
Elf City Theiving.

 

Also these are very helpful tools to use while clue hunting.

 

Tip.it's Treasure Trail guide

 

For celtic knots I use this -> http://runeapps.org/ttsolver_app

For scan clues I use this and follow a path -> http://runescape.wik...ls/Guide/Scans 

 

I use 2 presets

1. loads thieving gear and crystals teleport to find clues

2. loads gear, tele runes, jewelry to finish the clue 

 

Having a bookmark to all the different guides and loading it to a new window also really helps speed things up

Requirements
 
Other than unlocking certain areas for hard/elites, these are suggested requirements to have while clue hunting for speed and convenience.
 


Preparing for Your Journey:
 

 

Hard Clues
 
Coordinates:
 
Please note that this method uses the Notes feature in Runescape. It allows you to look up a coordinate with ease. However if you're new to clue hunting, I strongly recommend using Tip.it's Treasure Trail guide as it comes with pictures to help you!
 
However due to limited space, two coordinates are on the same "note" line... so I'm really hoping they will increase the cap in the future.
 


 
Uri Emotes
 
This is a list of all items you should have in your bank when doing Uri's emote clues. You can use costume-skipping tickets if you rather do that instead.
 

 
Maps
 
Just posting this in case. 
 

 

Elites
 
Compass:
 
First before doing compass clues...
 
Repeat after me.
 
I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map, I'm the map!
 
Sounds famliar? It's from Dora the Explorer... ;) and it really helps if you know the map of Gleinor. So I recommend being the map (knowing your locations) when doing compass clues.
 

 

Posting this again for celtic knots and scan locations:

 

For celtic knots I use this -> http://runeapps.org/ttsolver_app

For scan clues I use this and follow a path -> http://runescape.wik...ls/Guide/Scans 

 

I use 2 presets

1. loads thieving gear and crystals teleport to find clues

2. loads gear, tele runes, jewelry to finish the clue 

 

Having a bookmark to all the different guides and loading it to a new window also really helps speed things up

 

  The Celtic Knot solver is a very useful tool to use if you don't wish to use skipping tickets but still want to solve the clue fast.

 

As for scan clues, the images is very helpful!

 

Optional Suggestions:

  • Use Meerkat pouch and scrolls if you don't want to fight Zamorak/Guthix wizards. (it does not work in a few places i.e Nature's Grotto).
  •  
  • You can use skipping tickets if you'd like. I myself don't use them, as I like solving puzzles and such.
  •  
  • You can also use Miscellenia teleport scrolls instead or arrive there via fairy ring.
  •  
  • Have Tip.it's Treasure Trail guide handy. I've been using it since 2008 and still use it today to figure out riddles or anagrams! 
  •  
  • You can lodestone around instead of using runes to teleport though it's slower.

Nice guide! I know RSOF isn't exactly conducive to pictures but adding some in here would be great at some point :).

Thanks for your tips! I included your quote under the suggestions so people know. :)

 

I totally forgot about the Celtic Knot solver and is very useful for those not wanting to use skipping tickets but still want to solve these knots fast. 

 

And having an image of a scan path would be nice to see in the Tip.it's Scan section as that's pretty awesome! I actually never knew about this, and will definatley use it to help me out when doing scans. Thanks!  :D

Yeah, images make guides look alot more prettier and useful. Just added some. :)
