This post will be used to gather all info on this new type of event that was announced on 27th June 2018 on the various social media of the game.[1]

So D061418 Scavenger Hunt V4

General Info

  • Duration: The event will run for 4 weeks.
  • How it works: You need to find 4 fragments of an antique relic that are hidden around the game location. Once a week, a clue will be posted on the game social media (twitter , Facebook , Tumblr , forum ) for where to search for that week's fragment. To advance in the game, you need to find and have the previous week's fragment. That is, you can't find the second fragment if you haven't found the first one.
    When you reach a specific point in the location suggested by the riddle, you will get a new quest (that will award you an artifact).
  • The quest Eret's Plunder is an introduction to the scavenger's hunt, but it's not a requirement to unlock the first quest.
  • Tips: The clue will hint to a major feature in a location, that can be ANY in game (including Expansion-locked Locations ). The NPC that gives the quest, might not be close to the actual feature of the Location, but they're "hidden" out of sight - The quest arrow will NOT point to them.
  • Reward: Stormshatter sword, weapon that you can use for Dragon Tactics.

  • The announcement about the fourth clue also having a 1 week delay accidentally introduced a hint on the third clue's chest location;

Fourth Clue

The admins announced the fourth clue will also be released with 1 week delay:

A surprise visit by Whispering Deaths has left the School grounds covered in rocks and dirt, and the Dragon Riders have moved the fourth clue in our Scavenger Hunt to next week while they clean up the debris. Be ready to continue this adventure and solve the final clue!

    Stormshatter Chest

    • When opening the chest, make sure you have space for the Stormshatter.

Tips:

  • It's in a free Location, originally part of an expansion. The chest itself is in a sub-location of the main location, now accessible to all players.
  • Somewhat easy to notice as the access to said sub-location was re-positioned.
    • The location is relatively close, as it requires you to do 2 sharp turns.
  • No NCP will appear in the location after you find the chest.
  • Check that you have your quest arrow turned ON.
  • The last sentence from the riddle hints at the location;

Gltiches:

  • Currently, there's a glitch that re-adds the Stormshatter Chest to the Backpack, allowing the player to receive the Stormshatter again.

Quest Location

Link to Quest Location of the Quest
Is This a Treasure? Titan Island - The very highest top of the mountain
The Hobblegrunt Mystery Hobblegrunt Island - On the side of the taller, rocky, sharp-esque mountain
Spelunking Whispering Death's Cave - Near the small, green, glowing (if on pc) water spring, if lost, use this map for reference
Storm Reforged Underwater section in The Ship Graveyard. Behind a shipwreck on the left, to reach it do a sharp turn to the left from the bell, passing by the large shipwreck and then a shard turn to the right, passing by a small shipwreck and entering a corner cave, the chest is in the seaweeds, so a dive into the cave's floor will do to pass by it and trigger the quest.
