        1. They are under “The Crooked Masts”. The island’s official name starts with the word “The” so it’s under T alphabetically.

    1. Hmm, what islands? We are not missing any islands that have riddles that I am aware of. The Devil’s Thirst is also present with 14 riddle clues on this page.

  1. The man spent his time to organize all the riddles n their is no thank yous?
    Thank you Amir Abdollahi, ur a true pirate legend:D

    1. Great catch! We do not have that one. It’s on the East shore correct? We will go hunt it down and get it added to the map as soon as we can. Thank you so much for letting us know!

  2. Hi, I was doing the north rock passage between the 2 boarposts on ashen reaches, and it wasn’t working even tho I was reading the riddle like the riddle said

    1. Hmm…that is odd. So these were the boar posts to the North of the island near the “Cave of Bones to the North”? What did you have to do there? If it is play music, sometimes you have to start and stop playing while switching between songs.

  3. Thanks for the great info. Found this riddle I didnt see in your list on Flintlock Peninsula. (Reading this map at the rock trapped remains of “Flintlock” Bert near the North Beach is wise, another clue it does disguise.)

  4. Thanks so much for posting this Amir! Is there any way to view this from within the RareThief SoT app?

    1. No problem 🙂 Is there something about the current search feature in the app that doesn’t do the same thing here?

      1. It’s just so much faster to be able to quickly scroll through an alphabetical list of islands such as in this article rather than searching for each waypoint and being scrolled around a map that you need to zoom into, that’s all.

    1. Inner twin waterfalls eh? Is that the official name from the riddle map? Thank you for letting us know about this landmark! Do you remember whereabout we can find it? We can’t wait to add it to the map!

  5. thank you so much this site has been super helpful with all our riddles that have been hard to find! You are amazing to go out of your way to do all this

  6. First of all, thank you for this site. It has been extremely helpful in solving the riddles. However, you are missing one for Mermaid’s Hideaway. It starts with “Find the top of the smallest grassy rock stack to the South..”.

    1. Thanks for leaving the nice message! Glad we could help out 🙂 Ooh, good catch! That one will be great to add to the map. Thanks for leaving the specific riddle text as well. Is it this one here?

  7. Yes that looks like the right area. Only reason I caught it is because that is the riddle I had today and couldn’t find a matching descriptor on here to help out.

    1. Great, thanks! We will get it added to the map as soon as we can. We love hearing about new riddles we don’t have yet so this is awesome! Thank you again!

  8. Hello, I’m not certain if it goes under a different name, but there is a riddle on wanderer’s refuge that isn’t on the list. It goes, “Secrets hide my only legacy, at the high ground above the rocky tunnel to the far south west unlocked by melody.” I found it above a small rock passage just north of the last extension of the island.

  9. Hi. Not sure if anybody else has updated you on this but since I don’t see a link to it under Sunken Grove. It is a riddle talking about the barnacled chests to the north east. And the second half of the riddle varies because of reading the map, lifting lantern, etc.

  10. Nevermind, ignore this comment. I see that you have the barnacled chests for Sunken Grove but they are classified under opened treasure which is why I didn’t see it.

  11. How the is this a riddle guide? You don’t list any riddles! If I knew what I was looking for I wouldn’t be looking for a guide now would I? This is worse than worthless because I got my hopes up on how to solve a riddle but it just shows the land marks at the end of the riddles!

    1. Ahoy there! The riddles for the Gold Hoarder voyages can be different for every pirate. While one riddle might tell someone to play an instrument in front of the Painted Fire, another riddle could have someone raise their lantern in front of the Painted Fire. Having to sort through every variation of the riddle would be exhausting so we narrowed the riddles down to the part that really matters. Since there are only several ways to interact with each riddle clue (raise lantern, read map, play instrument), the hard part of the riddle is locating the landmark or rock painting. So if you are stuck on a riddle, pick out the action you need to do and the landmark or rock painting you need to do it by. If you know where to find the landmark or rock painting, then you are set. If not, hopefully this guide will help you find the clue in question 🙂

    1. Hmm, we haven’t come across that one yet. Which island was it on? Do you happen to have a picture of the riddle so we can see the whole thing? Thanks!

  12. Found a clue for Thieves Haven not on your list.
    “Secrets hide my only legacy, at the rickety hanging platform above the inner waters unlocked by melody”
    I had to drop down to the platform. Music didn’t work from above.
