Scan Clue Scrolls

Scans are a type of scroll that can only be received from Elite Clue Scrolls.

They don't really give you too much information other than an area and an Orb Scan Range.

How it works

The number given by the Orb Scan Range means that you have to be within x amount of paces from the spot to dig before you will be given an idea of where to go to. The Orb Scan Range varies from 11 to 38. Once you do get within the Orb's scan range a yellow arrow will start flashing showing you where to dig. If you are within the scan's range but the spot can't be seen on screen yet, the yellow arrow will still be there on your minimap, so you know in what direction to walk.

Once on the spot just dig, but beware, a Guthix Wizard might attack you.

Guthix Wizard

As you dig you might be surprised by a Guthix Wizard attacking you. This Wizard is level 125, level 110 when in the Wilderness and can do you quite a bit of damage. He attacks with all three types of attack and will adjust his attack according to your Armour and/or Defence. The most effective way to combat him therefore is to wear Melee Armour (which protects better against Ranged and even Melee attacks) and use Protect from Magic. If you Prayer level is rather low, you might want to consider bringing a Prayer Potion with you.

There is however a way to avoid having to fight the Wizard. If you can bring a Meerkat familiar and a few Fetch Casket Scrolls, you can dig up the Scroll Box or reward Casket without evoking the Wizard, thus not having to fight him. Meerkat pouches and Fetch Casket scrolls are a possible reward for all the different levels of Clue Scrolls.

A few of the possible locations

There are lots and lots of locations as to where you can be send to dig. Almost too many to get them all. Nevertheless, whenever I get a scroll (which isn't all that often), I will add the locations on here and will try to always get pictures of them too. but even with these pictures, you will still have to do all the work yourself. They can however, be a guideline as to where to go look for the spot.

The Areas

The possible locations for each area are then grouped in and around towns and villages in that area to hopefully make your search easier.
