It points to great treasure!
A clue scroll (easy) is a valuable random drop from a large variety of lower-levelled monsters. If a player possesses a clue scroll, they must either complete it, drop/destroy it or open the casket in order to receive a new one. Clue scrolls are the start of a Treasure Trail - a treasure hunt that sends players hunting all around RuneScape. At the end of the hunt players receive a reward of items randomly selected from a specific list, possibly including very rare and very valuable items.
For a guide on how to complete a clue scroll, see Treasure Trails Guide.
Level 1 clue scrolls are the easiest to obtain and complete, and offer lower rewards in return. The rewards can range from Black equipment to Wizard robes (g). A quick way to get easy clue scrolls is by pickpocketing H.A.M. Members in Lumbridge (Note: Wearing H.A.M. robes will increase the likelihood of successful pickpockets(1/50 to get a clue)). Same goes with killing the thugs in Edgeville wilderness dungeon while wearing a ring of wealth (i), as the thugs also drop valuable herbs and runes.
Easy clue scrolls do not feature any co-ordinate clues, and require nothing to be fought. They also do not take the player into the Wilderness.
This clue scroll may contain the following types of clue:
Completion of easy clues will give another clue or a casket, containing the final reward for the trail.
(Its also possible to get runes and God pages)
It should be noted, that if a player dies in the Wilderness with a clue scroll in over 20 wilderness it WILL DISAPPEAR whether it's a PvP death or not, unless it is an item kept on death, or if that player has a clue box. Players will find that the clue scroll will be gone upon returning to their loot otherwise. However, when dying in the Wilderness with a clue box, provided the player returns quick enough, will be able to loot their dropped clue scroll. In lower wilderness however (lvl 20 or lower) in PvP death, the unprotected clue will stay on the ground for up to 1 hour. The same goes for reward caskets. If you die in lower wilderness due to a monster you will always keep the clue whether protected or not.
The average easy clue scroll reward is valued at 5,000 gold. As well as unique treasure trails rewards, players may also receive a variety of items such as black armour, black weapons, oak planks, willow shortbows, coifs, leather armour, yew shortbows, salmon, trout, elemental talismans and steel pickaxes.
