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 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.

 

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 27: The Missing Link [ 3/18 - 3/24 ]

The answer for this week is Potato! Without the exclamation mark at the end, of course.

 

...But this is awkward. It seems that I've misplaced the link of where to go to submit the answer. I know it's in this thread somewhere... Maybe you can find it?

 

Last week's prize:

3x Battle Manual x10

SmokieIdea_zps9afed806.pngThe SolutionSmokieConfused_zps942a489a.png

 

Here's the link:

 

rc27solved_zpsct3fjent.png

 

Clicking on this particular Poring in the bottom banner would send you to the Survey page where you could submit your answer.

 

There were several ways to find it, including viewing the source of the page for the link itself or by increasing the size of the text / images to reveal that the banner had actually been split into three separate images.

 

There were 63 correct answers, so everyone that answered correctly earns 1 point this week!

there are no automatic prize winners anymore.  everyone who answered correctly got 1 pt last week.  I guess what we are waiting on is a proper pt conversion table (e.g. bmx3s shouldn't need as many pts to redeem vs a skull cap)

Fixed, thanks!

 

Yes, no more weekly prizes unfortunately. It was just too much work for Oda and I, as well as the problem of puzzles being too easy for the prizes we were giving out.

Four hours of brainstorming and no positive results. Now I feel stupid for thinking "ah, it should be piece of cake" when I started.

if people want to redeem their points this week, this is the prize they would get.  Ralis would need to determine how many points it's worth though.

the points awarded per week depends on the number of correct answers.  it is out of 100, so 50 correct answers = 2 pts per person.

 

the maximum you can get is 20 pts.

In other words, if nothing changes, it's very likely that all winners of this week will be able to get Skull Cap (or any other week's prize)   :wah:
