Before the main event, I'd like to mention some changes to existing tiers of clue scroll:

Elite clues now reward trimmed orikalkum armor, masters trimmed necronium.

And now, what you've all been waiting for: A new level of clue scroll, bringing new kinds of puzzles and awesome rewards to go with it!

tl;dr version:

New puzzle types, new rewards including insanely expensive and rare first-age armor.

Rewards:

coins, holy biscuits, purple sweets, teleport scrolls, god pages, gnomish firelighters, Saradomin/Guthix/Zamorak arrows, noted meerkat pouches and fetch casket scrolls, sealed clue scroll (Master)

Everything from master clue scrolls: https://runescape.wiki/w/Treasure_Trails/Rewards/Master

Unicorn Dye.


Trimmed elder rune armor

First-age equipment: It's red and black, and tends to be as jagged/spiky as possible without looking ridiculous. It's T94, but every piece costs ~10b. They degrade to nothing, but can be repaired with an infusion of pure coins, around 10b for a full repair. There's 3 armor sets-melee, magic, and ranged, as well as assorted main- and off-hand weaponry, along with a set of shields. OFC, there's a toolset, as well.

Alchemical onyx dragon mask: cosmetic

Runes cape: a cosmetic cape

Fashions Cape: Ditto

Bloodwood cosmetic override: colors all wooden items red.

Aura Break bolts/ arrows: 10% chance to disable your opponent's aura for 5-15 seconds. T85. Te bolts are for crossbows and the arrows for bows.

Seren/Zaros/Tuska arrows: T85, +5 prayer, the Seren ones lower your foe's strength, the Zaros ones magic, and the Tuska ones prayer.

New Puzzle type:

Basically, there's an opening in one side of the box, and you have to move around wooden blocks until there's an pathway for something or other to get out the opening.

They've already done exactly what you are suggesting not too long ago...

New tier - Master Clues
New puzzle types - Lockbox and Towers
New Rewards - Orlando hat, 2nd age equipment, Ice Dye, Golden Thread, Ornament Kits, Weapon overrides, and many more...

This would eventually have to happen at some point in the future, but as for right now... They just had this exact same update and it hasn't stagnated yet. I'd much rather see them put work into giving clue grinders more ways to show off their achievements/accomplishments/dedication to the clue life.

Also, I'm not a fan of adding anymore dyes to the clue drop table. I think that if clues became oversaturated with dye options, the market would react and dye prices would drop. I'd suggest something else that is both useful and fun, but no more dyes.
Oops... Did I just say that? O_o

I don't think we need another tier of treasure trails for now, but I'd leave some commentary towards your other suggestions.

New puzzles would be something that could be used to extend lower tiers to make them more diverse. Especially elites get dull extremely quickly. I think all other tiers are fairly decently covered.

I don't have too much of an opinion towards most of your new rewards suggestions, since most of them also could be included in elites and masters, but...

Your idea for a t94 set obtained via treasure trails is crude... It doesn't help anybody to give it unreasonable high stats (which are beyond everything ingame now), but make it unreasonable to use at the same time 'to balance it out'. 3rd and 2nd age pieces are intended to be used by a few minmaxers out there, not by nobody at all.

The other stuff doesn't sound too shabby to be honest.

Thank you both for your feedback. As far as too many clue updates, it doesn't have to happen immediately. In addition, it's one more dye, for crying out loud.Also, did you notice it was a link? I was actually shocked when I found out dyes were tradeable. Also, just realized i forgot to include my (less serious than the other ideas) idea for having insanely rare discontinued holiday rares (unreasonably so, to the point where it will most likely never happen don't worry.)

Again, the update doesn't have to happen immediately.
