Puzzle boxesEdit

When speaking to an NPC in a level 3, 4 or 5 trail, the player may receive a puzzle box. Puzzle boxes are 'step two' of a clue: first the player has to find the right NPC to speak to (when they get a cryptic or anagram clue), and then they have to solve the puzzle, to advance along their trail.

Puzzle boxes are the RuneScape version of n-puzzles – they contain a scrambled image that players must work to unscramble by clicking on tiles to move them to an empty space. Once the puzzle box is completed, players will need to talk to the NPC who gave the puzzle to receive the next clue or the reward.

Many people find puzzle boxes daunting, but taken from the right approach they can be simple and quite fun. The game scrambles the puzzles by randomly moving pieces approximately 50 - 200 times.

If the player wants a different puzzle, they can destroy the box (not the clue) and ask the NPC for another. If the player logs out, without finishing the puzzle, they will lose all progress and will have to start over again. However, if the puzzle box belongs to an elite clue, they will be unable to ask for another one, and must either complete the puzzle or drop the puzzle scroll box/casket.
