Think you know AQWorlds pretty well? Want to test your knowledge? Then this puzzling thread is the place for you! Work together with your fellow forum members to solves some riddles about AQWorlds from us, your AQWorlds General Discussion ArchKnights!

The Thread Rules
  • All =AE= Comprehensive Forum Rules and =AQW= General Discussion Forum Rules apply.
  • No randomly guessing answers. Any post that is solely a random guess of an answer will be removed.
  • Do not post your own riddle! We do not want people posting their own riddles as then there would be too many different topics for discussion happening at once.
  • If you wish to discuss an old riddle after the answer has been revealed, please be sure to make it absolutely which riddle you are referring to, so as not to mislead others on the most current riddle.
  • Do not ask the ArchKnights for hints. These riddles are meant to be a problem-solving and team-building thing, and it defeats the purpose if you come to someone with the answer asking for help.
  • Do not intentionally mislead others. If your post is deemed to be intentionally misleading or off-topic, it will be removed.
  • Use only links to images. Use of image tags will result in your post being removed.
  • Use spoiler tags if you are going to mention the name you think the answer might be. Some people may want to work on figuring out the clues but draw their own conclusions for their answer. As such, please put anything you might think is the answer in spoiler tags. To do so, use the following code:
    [spoiler]Your text here[/spoiler]
How This Works
  1. Every few days, one of the ArchKnights will move the old riddle to the bottom of the thread, give the answer to that riddle, and add a new riddle to the thread.
  2. You'll take the clues that are provided in the first post and work together to try to figure out what it is! These clues may be easy, they may be hard, they may require you to really think about what we might be referring to.
  3. Once you think you've figured out what the answer is, you'll go find it in-game and take a screenshot of yourself with it. If you cannot actually equip it (be it Legend-only or a Miscellaneous item, or an AC item you cannot or do not want to purchase), a screenshot of the item preview in your inventory or the shop will suffice. Everyone is encouraged to take these, as they are the best way to show you've figured out and found the answer. Once you've posted your link, indicate it as your final answer. If you wish to change it, please do not post again, simply change the link. If you absolutely cannot get an in-game screenshot of the answer, then we will accept a Wiki link, but only on the final day; it's more fun if you're able to track down the answer in-game, so try your best to do that first!
Riddle of the Period for 27 Feb 2017 to 2 Mar 2017

Mr. Loggins approved, eh? See here, butter is easy to slice if you've got something hot enough. Why make one piece of equipment when you can use billions of tiny ones to make one bigger one? Seems efficient. Did you see that mechsup at the awards ceremony? Awkward!

Hey guys! We've been developing this thread for a while, as we thought it would be something fun for you all to do. Because it's new, there are likely to be a few questions about things, so if you've got any questions, feel free to ask them! I'll do my best to give a clear answer, and if we find a large number of questions keep getting asked, we'll likely add an FAQ to the first post.

I decided to give you a bit of an easier riddle for this week, since we're doing a bit of a shorter week, starting in the middle. Normally you'll have a full week, starting Sunday, to get a riddle, though we may adjust this time frame depending on how quickly you are able to solve the riddles. So have fun with this! We hope you enjoy it, and maybe learn a few things about AQW in the process.

My answer

So will it always be a piece of equipment or a misc item? Or will there also be scenery related riddles? Although i guess those have a harder time being precise, because there can be many same looking scenery.

@Metakirby: As of right now, it's anything. Could be an equippable item, could be a Misc item, could be a map, monster, NPC (for this one, if the NPC is found in more than one map, we'd be looking for the one in a specific map), an event, it could even be a cutscene. If we find people are struggling too much to a certain type correct, we may cut those from the list of possibilities, but until we get a better idea of how certain ones will work out, anything goes. The only thing that probably won't show up are specific quests, since those are just too difficult to do feasibly.

@DarkLore: Someone giving an answer doesn't necessarily mean it's the correct answer, it just means that's what they think the answer is. They might be right, or they might be wrong. Some clues may only give one possible answer, but some parts could be interpreted in different ways that could lead to different answers. You won't know for sure if someone's answer was correct until we reveal the final answer, so once someone answers, it isn't necessarily the end of it. We'll also be having different difficulties of clues, so some answers may take nearly the full week to figure out what each part means.

After having looked at Metakirby's answer, I really don't see how there could be a different way the riddle could be interpreted (I was thinking of that same thing before I clicked on the link).

Here's what I think the riddle means:

Reaving is bound to happen in war. This can refer to the name of the weapon, Savage Reaver. Also, it drops from the monsters in the Bloodtuskwar map.

Chaos cannot be trusted to hold it forever. The monsters that drop it are all charroupted versions of the bloodtusk animals.

A mere pittance you will receive for such an ancient treasure. The description of the item says that it's a really old weapon of the past. That's the "ancient treasure" part. The "mere pittance" part is because the weapon sells for only 250 gold.

We're not trolling you. The description of the weapon says that it's a horc weapon, not a troll one.

Just a reminder, today is the last day for submissions on this particular riddle. Tomorrow at vague o'clock I will put in a new riddle (I'm 3 hours behind server time, so I'm not sure exactly when I'll put up the new riddle, though it'll likely be between 10 to noon server time).

If you choose to look at the answer, it might look too obvious and silly at first, but if you take in all the information you get from the screenshot, it makes a lot of sense.

I just so happened to check on the forums as Shadowhunt updated the post and thought to myself "might as well get it over with".
This one gave me a little more trouble than the last one though, as the clues "could" be iterpreted in a couple different ways. The answer was actually the first thing that came to mind, but it seemed way too obvious at first (untill i looked at the alternatives).

Aura Knight


My initial thought was what Metakirby posted, but then thought there could be another so I went with my second choice of This Monstrosity It's a dog (alien) from the Lore Trek merge shop. The ack part of the riddle lead me to believe it's referring to disgust and the pet does look kinda ugly. While it is a dog it won't replace Daimyo and the Trek part comes from Lore Trek.

There are a few reasons behind this thread.
- Trying to foster a bit more interaction between the community here, as there are sort of disparate groups but everyone plays AQW so in theory everyone could help solve the riddles
- It's something for people to do if they've done most of the things available in the game (a similar concept to the Challenge Thread)
- There are a lot of items, maps, etc. that people may not have heard of or seen, and if one of them is a potential answer or answer, maybe someone will find something new about the game
- Having fun!

The riddle for this week can be found near the bottom of the post, in size 2 italic font. For this week, it is "ACk! Artix would never replace Daimyo! The trek wouldn't be worth the trouble anyways."

Just a reminder, today's the last day for you to get your screenshot of what you think the answer is! I gave a pretty tough one this time, so feel free to discuss what you think the parts of the clue mean.

I still think Aura Knight is either on the spot or close to the answer.

Ack refers to the kind of disturbing/ugly look of the dog. As Aura Knight put it, it's the sound of disgust.
Artix would never replace Daimyo refers to it being a dog, but cannot replace daimyo as companion.
The trek wouldn't be worth the trouble anyways refers to the curreny needed to obtain the pet (loretrek tokens).

My logic behind the clues were:
Ack: I will admit, i don't know how this fits into my answer.
Artix would never replace Daimyo: because the shop is called "the replicator" meaning it wouldn't be the same Daimyo, but a replica of Daimyo.
The trek wouldn't be worth the trouble anyways: it defnitely has something to do with space in 1 way or the other, i thought it was because you would need to go into the space station to get the materials needed which is not worth the trouble for the fear of spooks/death

New riddle has been posted! Had a couple interesting answers and good guesses, but nobody did end up with the correct one. So feel free to discuss what the clues might mean for last week's, as it may give you some insight into how the clues are structured or made. Just be sure to indicate which riddle you're talking about.

Okay, this week's riddle. According to a trusted source (definitely not Wikipedia), the highest pH level for a base is 14. That makes the base level of the weapon level 15. Sadly, I don't know what the rest of the clues mean.

Edit: Typing in search terms with quotation marks makes the search engine search for those words together, not separately. So typing in "base level: 15" into the AQWwiki search brings up a list of all articles with those consecutive words together.

About last week's riddle: the "AC" in "ACk" is capitalized, referring to the Pink Trobbolier Pet being AC tagged.
