I opened the giant oyster and got what appears to be a medium level clue reward, because there was an addy thing in it. I forgot already what I got other than an addy crossbow, nothing spectacular this time, but still fun.

What did you get?

Completing the quest "Beneath Cursed Tides" grants member accounts access to the Giant Oyster D&D on RS3, where accounts may gain Fishing and Farming XP, feed the Giant Oyster and claim a Treasure Trails reward once per month. If a player has a D&D token (monthly), the token may be used to play the Giant Oyster D&D a second time in any given month.

An Off-Hand Brief Case, addy arrows, and some runes. Grand Exchange said 8.66m for the Brief Case but when I put it in it sold for 65m.

Either someone really wanted it or... it's that much. I dunno.


I think you got the most valuable reward, congratz!

I got a Cat Mask, sold for 4M!


Wow! Really nice! Gratz!

Somewhere under the sea

The NPC stands outside the Wizard's tower South of Draynor and lets you dive to get fishing and Farming XP and feed the giant oyster, then at the beginning of the next month you can collect the clue scroll reward. As many have said, just the XP is worth it.

Oh. This is a monthly D&D for the Beneath Cursed Tides quest, I still get notification in-game to find out what happened to tutorial island, since I haven't started the BCT quest yet.

Thanks Trans for the thread and for bringing awareness to the giant oyster! ^_^


You're welcome!

Now ask me again next month. :p


You can post on this thread if it is still here next month!

As I see it, you get the items without having to do all the steps of a clue scroll plus you get the XP, and even though most of the time you get something low value, there is a chance to get something worth more.

This month I got:
75 astral runes, 24 noted mahogany planks, 5 noted black dragonhides, a yew composite bow, a magic composite bow, and 7 Pollnivneach teleports. 103,439 coins value.

Junk on this character and on one of my other characters, but I got 75 nature runes, Zamorak Platelegs, rune longswords x2, and a rune pickaxe worth in total 899,999 GP on my noob account.

Oh, I forgot to mention, I got 99 Fishing on my other character from the Giant Oyster fishing this month. I didn't realize I was that close to getting 99 Fishing on that character so it surprised me. lol.

Total crap worth 30K. Can't be worse than that...


I got around 12k worth of items or less on my other account. For me the XP still makes it worth doing even if the GP reward is low sometimes.

Almost mid month, time for a bump to remind people who might not have checked the Giant Oyster yet this month, and maybe motivate some players to complete Beneath Cursed Tides quest for a chance at a dye or other Treasure Hunter rewards and some Fishing and Farming XP. Hi.

For those who haven't checked the Giant Oyster yet this month, there is still some time, and for those who have not done the "Beneath Cursed Tides" quest, if you do it now you can check the Giant Oyster April 1st which is just a few days away. Hi.

Yeah, you get bloody good XP doing this D&D - the prize is an extra and if you get anything good that's purely luck and I think we all hope for that little bit of luck - but I feel that hope is for those that have had long term membership, no difference of opinion with the green or gold...


Yep, that is how I look at it, the Treasure Trail reward is a bonus you get in addition to the XP. The chance at a dye or something else valuable makes me want the reward though too.

Giving this a bump to remind people to check the Giant Oyster before the end of the month. This also gives a chance for those who have not yet done the quest "Beneath Cursed Tides" to do so to be ready to check the Giant Oyster at the beginning of May. Hi.

Shadow Dye (got it 2.5 week ago). :D


Very nice! Congratz!

Mod Shogun said:
The normal rune stuff and a puzzle knot skip ticket!
That is probably the best the oyster has ever given me.


Aw, well at least the XP is good! Keep trying maybe you will get a dye someday, I'm still waiting to get a dye too.

Ahura said:
What I've got up to this day is crap like I always get from doing actual clues, so there's no difference. XD


Its not supposed to be different from what you get from a clue scroll, though I have noticed if you have a lower level character the rewards tend to be lower value, so as your character gains levels you can expect better rewards. And of course you get the XP, which I like.

Backstab cape and some other stuff.


Nice, that is one of the best items anyone has won other than a dye.

@Lynxlynx

2 Bandos pages is definitely above average for prizes, nice RNG there. =)

The nice thing is we all get XP, so even if the value of the items we get is low, its nice to have some XP toward level 120 or 200M XP, and if we get something worth more that is a bonus.

My noobiest account: Just under 18K worth of items.

2nd noobiest account: 24,467 GP worth of items.

3rd lowest level account: 1,204,011 GP worth of items.
Mystic air staff, black dragonhide chaps, mystic firestaff, puzzle-skipping ticket x4

2nd highest level account: 1,404,646 GP worth of items.
Rune longsword, rune full helm, rune plateskirt H5, maystic firestaff, rune platebody h5

Highest level account: 155,631 GP worth of items.

I've noticed the higher level an account is, the higher the usual reward value usually is, though of course there are exceptions where a lower level account can get more, I think in general higher level accounts get higher value rewards most of the time.

"Pippyspot, I believe I have only had one monthly on my members account and yes I would only use it on the Oyster minigame too. I got another one the other day, possibly on this account but Dong U Dead will never become a member unless my other two get maxed and at the age of 50 I doubt that very much.

The Oyster seems to have lost its top after I opened it. The top came back after I opened it again. The first item is the reset, not a reward from the Oyster, and went away again after I fed it again.

159,688 GP worth of items



494,139 worth of items after using a reset. Rune platebody (H3), Rune platelegs Saradomin.

How many month resets do you have transcendent?

two sara page 3, paid for the vis wax i bought


None left, you can only use one a month anyway though.
You can make 28 daily resets into a monthly reset, or 4 weekly resets into a monthly reset.

That's true. I do end up selling most things, but Invention components are also welcome :). I didn't mean to sound ungrateful or anything! :P


I agree composite bows are nothing exciting, a dye or anything worth several hundred million would be exciting. =)

I missed last month by half a day because I was too focused on elite dungeons.

When I returned after realising it, I could only do this month’s.

RIP me for doing hard content solely to disprove elitist opinions. Sorry if I’m still affected. But not in the mood to share this months. Nothing special to cover my 50m loss learning elite dungeons before finally clearing first boss solo normal mode.


Gratz on clearing the boss at least!

People are wasting precious time doing the Oyster and other DNDs during DXP, when the XP they give out isn't boosted and can easily be done after DXP ends? Given the reliability of the oyster I'm doubly surprised.


It doesn't take that long and gives good XP even when not boosted. I don't think anyone needs to be worried if they spend five minutes on something that it hurts their XP gains too much, people have to sleep and eat too so you aren't going to be gaining XP every minute of the day, its not a big deal if you miss five minutes to do something fun.
