Welcome to the Ralis Conundrum!

 

Every Wednesday, at some varying point of the day, I'll be posting some sort of weekly challenge for you to figure out. Each week brings a new puzzle: it may be a math problem, a riddle or something else entirely. Whatever it may be, you'll have to use a little (or a lot of) brain power to figure it out. These puzzles may require knowledge outside of Ragnarok! Anyone is capable of finding the answer, but I cannot guarantee you will always know what to do if you have little to no understanding of Ragnarok, computers, math, science, etc.

 

The competition is open to both servers! Chaos Renewal and Classic Loki players may both enter their answers. It may help you to know, then, that the answer to each challenge will be something that can be found by players of both servers.

 

Correct answers may win a prize at the end of the week. However, only a certain number of prizes can be given out and all correct answers are entered into the prize pool. Please do not try and use multiple accounts to get better odds! We check account connections. If you're caught doing this, you will be automatically disqualified from present and future competitions... Including OTHER events on the forums as well.

 

Correct answers that are not chosen for the weekly prize will gain points depending on how many people get the correct answer! When you've saved up 20 points (points will be kept track in the 3rd post of each thread), you can PM me any time during the week to trade your points in for the current week's prize. You may only trade in points once a week for a single prize, so keep that in mind if you're trying to save up for a "better" prize. Winners of the weekly prize may PM me by the end of the week to opt out of the weekly prize, instead receiving the amount of points awarded as a participation prize for that week, up to a maximum of 20.

 

Please keep in mind that the theme for each week is not always a factor in figuring out the puzzle. This does not mean that it will never have an impact, but rather that you should not assume that you must travel to a location or that the answer must fit the theme given in that week's conundrum.

 

Prizes are always subject to change based on Oda's discretion.

 

Please do not post or PM your answers. Use the link below the challenge to submit answers!

 

You may freely adjust your entry until each week's deadline.

 

Helpful links:

 

iRO Wiki

iRO Wiki Renewal Database

iRO Wiki Classic Database

Google

 

I don't consider search engines cheating. You will never find the answer directly, but always use your resources!

 

Please be cautious when asking questions about the puzzle of the week on the forums as they could end up being hints for others. You are always welcome to PM me with any questions you may have.

Week 23: Word Web [ 2/4 - 2/10 ]

 

rc23fixed_zps8348d6ad.png

 

While battling your way over Mt. Mjolnir, slaughtering countless numbers of Argos, you happen to notice that their webs contain a seemingly random jumble of letters. But then, you notice that they're not random at all! It turns out that these spiders, in their webs, spell out a Ragnarok-related word or phrase if you connect the letters, starting on one side and ending on the other (though you're not sure which side is the beginning and which side is the end). The path the letters take can go in any direction as long as the letters are connected. In addition, the same space is never used more than once.

 

What word or phrase is spelled out in this web?

The competition ends Tuesday, February 10th at 11:59 PM PST! Good luck!

Week 22: Follow the Rainbow [ 1/28 - 2/3 ]

What number comes next?

 

Last week's prize:

Incubus Egg

SmokieIdea_zps9afed806.pngThe SolutionSmokieConfused_zps942a489a.png

 

The answer is 500.

 

The colors correspond to the health restored in the description of different potions.

 

Red Potions restore 35 HP.

Orange Potions restore 105 HP.

Yellow Potions restore 175 HP.

Green Potions restore 0 HP.

Blue Potions restore 0 HP.

 

Now, how many of your read that third post in each conundrum thread? It lists the birthdays of people in that week, and it's always in a pretty rainbow format. This week's was a bit different, in the fact that I eliminated the color Indigo. That last pinkish color, however, is classified as Violet by the forums, and there is a potion with that color: Violet Potion, and it restores 500 HP.

 

The number on the Blue Potion was changed shortly after the topic was posted last Wednesday to avoid some confusion. I had intended for you to add the HP and SP restored for an answer of 560, but it wasn't as clear as I originally thought it would be. By changing that last number it (hopefully) made it a little more obvious that the only number I was looking for was the HP value.

 

There were 23 correct answers this week, and the five winners are:

Raspuchin, TrulyLazy, Kalten, shilian and Yugacky!

Congratulations!

 

Everyone else that answered correctly but did not get selected for the weekly prize have earned 4 points this week!

 

Your prize will (eventually) be mailed to or in the inventory of the character you listed on the answer page. If you would like to opt to not receive this week's prize and instead receive points equal to the participation prize, please PM me before the end of the week.

 

Please note: the two-week guarantee thing wasn't working too well as Oda has a lot of other responsibilities that come before getting prizes out. I will try to post in the current week's thread what prizes have been given out, but please be aware that you will get your prizes eventually, it just might take a few weeks. If I've posted that prizes for the week you won have been given out and you don't have yours, then THAT would be the time to PM Oda or I. Sorry about the inconvenience!

Hey, last week's quiz isn't fair for those playing in Classic.

 

I first thought it has something to do with the colors of the herbs/potions, so I guess the following number will be the healing rate of the White Potion but then I look at the title, it says Follow the Rainbow and I got stumped.

 

Do you accept 325 as your answer as well?

 

I always assume your questions can always be found in Classic server because its the one server with lesser updates. Please take note of this when you're going to include questions that isn't found in Classic. Thanks.

True it's not on Classic, but it does appear in the database, which anyone can access... It's actually listed on the classic database as well. xD

But this is what you'd get if you were to click on the link for the WoE Violet Potion using the Classic database.

Uhm, noone said you have to use the classic database. You can access the renewal one too to figure out the answer and that's open to anyone.

It says no letter is to be used more than once, but do all letters get used?

White isn't a color of the rainbow.

It starts on either the four nodes on the left or right and ends on one of the four nodes on the opposite sides.

 

All letters do not need to be used.

God I spent like an hour hesitating whether to put 0 or 500. 0 because there is no indigo potion. Finally decide to put 0 because the topic says we should follow the rainbow, and the color after blue is indigo :sob:

I don't understand your questions...

 

It is a word or phrase that you can connect the letters to spell, starting on one of the four nodes on either the left or right side and ending on one of the four nodes on the opposite side from where you started.

 

Does that answer them? :l

this one is pretty rough honestly.  it's basically not worth it to brute force; too many possibilities.  programming know-how would be required i think, unless there's some stupid easy clue that i'm missing here.

unless you solve the puzzle you can't really say with 100% that you have the correct word.

Actually I spent about 15 min just now and figured it out.  It was actually very easy after I grabbed a piece of paper and started spelling out words.
