You are missing the Sunstone Riddle on Plunder valley

Nilv

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

Shane

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.)

Rob

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

Rob

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.

i’ve found butterfly lookout but the next part of the riddle doesn’t show

[…] all landmarks are landmarks. Containers cannot be landmarks. If the clues are too hard for you, there’s always a way to cheat and find the answers, but you still have to find the […]

Thanks a lot man. This is most helpful

Jemini

Nothing shows when I click them now they aren’t showing me them on the map anymore.

Thieves haven inner twin waterfalls

Shark Bait Cove’s “Opposite Facing Fish” is known on riddles as “Twin Fish boulder”. RareThief Maps also has it listed as “Opposite Facing Fish”.

Stephanie

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

Alison

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..”.

Alison

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.

Justin Hoppe

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.

Alison Jog

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.

Alison Jog

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.

Alison Jog

Yes my riddle said barnacled chests to the North East.

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!

Peter

Thanks a lot man, helped me and my friends a bunch of times

Alex Kacary

What about “A fortune stolen by the renowned watch yor backson”?

Bill Weaver

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.

Yo, I don’t know how to solve this “At the duelling crabs on the South West beach secrets once were lost, a shanty is the rumored cost“ on Crook’s Hollow

Alison

For this guide, you need to go to the Crook’s Hollow section and find the clue that says duelling crabs. That clue will show you the location on the island where you need to go. Once standing in front of the duelling crabs, you need to play an instrument. That part will be some trial and error with different instruments and shanties. Hope this helps!

Alison Jog

Hi Amir, I have a riddle on Shipwreck Bay that you don’t seem to have on this guide. The specific text was “Find the tunnel cut through the rocky peak”. This is referring to the tunnel in the highest peak area.

Artemis

hi so i got stuck at the riddle in Cresent Isle. It said “Get to the top rock of rockpool waterfall to the north …, light shining is what you need” can anyone help me with that

Alison Jog

Hi Artemis. So if you are using this riddle guide, go to the section Crescent Isle. Then click the clue “top of the rock pool waterfall to North” which will show you a picture of where you need to be. For the light shining part, you need to raise your lantern. You might need to try shining the lantern in a few directions at the top rock to get it to activate. Hope this helps!
