Cryptic clues[edit | edit source]

A cryptic clue is one of the types of clues found as part of the Treasure Trails Distraction and Diversion. As the name suggests, a cryptic clue does not directly tell the player where to go, but has a secretive message in the clue scroll which points towards a location. Solutions may involve talking to an NPC, searching an interactive object (such as a crate or bookshelf), or digging at a location.

Within medium clue scrolls, a few cryptic clues may require the player to obtain a key as a drop from a monster nearby. This key allows access to the location of the clue scroll.
