Sherlock chathead.png

Sherlock is an NPC to whom players speak if their elite or master clue directs them to do so. He is located between the Sorcerer's Tower and Keep LeFaye. Players may teleport to Sherlock once a day with the completion of the hard Kandarin Diary using the Kandarin headgear 3. Upon completion of the elite Kandarin Diary, players have unlimited teleports to Sherlock using the Kandarin headgear 4.

He will assign players a skill challenge before giving them their next clue, which may consist of one of the following (temporary skill boosts may be used).

Note that in order for the challenge to be completed, the challenge scroll must be in your inventory. If the challenge is completed, but the challenge scroll is not in your inventory, it will not register as being completed.
