Once you are in the water, you will find yourself on the submerged Tutorial Island's South Western shore near a giant oyster. Oysters have a thing for turning sand and grime into pearls and this one is rather special in both regards. In order to make anything of value, it must be fed a Sea cucumber and some Delicious seaweed.

Da Map

Note that if you completed the Oyster during a previous month, you will need to check it before you can obtain a Sea cucumber or Delicious seaweed.



Obtaining the Sea Cucumber

To get a Sea cucumber, swim a little West of the oyster and you will find yourself by some Fishing spots. Fish there and, after receiving 30 ticks of experience, you will receive the Sea cucumber. The experience received is based on the player's Fishing level (see the table below) and a player can only receive up to a certain amount of experience in this manner each month. The cap is equal to the total amount of experience earned in order to obtain the Sea cucumber and is reset by a D&D token (monthly). Thus if you use one, you will gain Fishing experience when fishing for the second Sea cucumber.

Cucumber

Note that the experience gained can only be boosted until you have reached level 99 in the skill. This can only be done by boosting your skill level. As a result, the experience gained will match the skill level you have boosted to.

Obtaining the Delicious Seaweed

To get the Delicious seaweed, go a little North of the oyster and you will find a patch of tasty looking seaweed. Harvest from it and, after receiving 30 instances of Farming experience, you will receive the Delicious seaweed. The experience received is based on the player's Farming level (see the table below) and a player can only receive up to a certain amount of experience in this manner each month. The cap is equal to the total amount of experience earned in order to obtain the Delicious seaweed and is reset by a D&D token (monthly). Thus if you use one, you will gain Farming experience when harvesting the second batch of Delicious seaweed.

Feeding the Oyster

Once you have both the Sea cucumber and Delicious seaweed, swim back to the oyster and feed it. When the next month rolls around, you will be able to check it, revealing its special treasure. You can also use a D&D token (monthly) to reset the oyster, allowing you to check it and feed it twice in the same month.

Oyster

Rewards:

Checking the Oyster each month will reward the player with items as though they had completed a Treasure Trail. The difficulty of the Treasure Trail is based on the player's total level, meaning that a player with a higher total level will get rewards as though they had opened a casket of a higher difficulty. For information on possible rewards, reference our Treasure Trails Rewards special report.

Oyster Check

When you are finished, it is easiest to simply teleport away in order to leave. Another option is to enter the building North of the oyster. Here you will find a stream of large bubbles which you can use to take you to the surface.
