Anniversary scavenger hunt guide – year 10

This is it, everyone. The last set of scavenger hunt quests. After ten weeks, we get to follow in Bilbo’s footsteps, defeat treacherous beasts and end it all with a pub crawl. And if you’ve saved those scraps of paper and you’re crafty enough, you might finally be able to decipher the riddle and score yourself an extra housing item.

  1. Gorthorog in Annuminas too, right?

    Also, you can get a button from doing the Goblintown throne room instance. I would assume the Seat of the Great Goblin would work as well. However, the Gollum’s cave found in that instance won’t work.


  2. For Lothgobel Tavern, you either need to be on the quest, get a summon from someone inside, or petition a GM to port you in. And if you do get ported/summoned inside, make sure to go toward the door before leaving (if you map out) so that the visit part triggers.


    • No there is no way to get them back, but they are not bound and dont worry, internet will be covered in solutions to that puzzle


  3. Hey, just adding rems:

    Lothgobel Tavern 2
    Scholar’s Tavern of Dol Amroth 2
    Ethring Tavern 2
    Forlong’s Hall 2
    The Haven 2
    The Merry Swan 3
    Mûmak and Keep 3 (1 upstairs)
    Thirsty Seer 2 (1 upstairs)
    Wheel and Cask 3

    Also thank you for an awesome guide for this festival.


  4. cower, mourn, lookaround, story, sit… in that order, and then you have to complete the quest within the same time frame as well


  5. No reply button on the post: “I’m pretty sure they unlocked it for the duration of the hunt because I was able to just walk in from outside without the quest, without any port or summon.” It’s not unlocked, at least not for everyone; Cordovan says they’re going to fix it. I saw at least one person who had already completed the quest say they could get in but the tavern is empty (since it’s the wrong version, I assume).


  6. I solved the final puzzle with the Scrap Papers, but only by using the internet. I have no idea how “273855.,.” re-arranged in the order of 971624835 gave us the coordinates “23.8,57.5” – I got “..2578,35”.

    Also I have no Idea how the hints “John, Marla Shelton, Seargeant-at-arms Irminric, Bragi Stoutclub and Gapi” were hints for “cower, mourn, lookaround, story and sit”

    I guess after 10 weeks of this, I was just lost.

    • The emotes are the emotes that the NPCs are doing. I kind of figured that was what we needed to do, emotes representing the NPCs, but I didn’t realize (didn’t think about it) they themselves do the emotes (someone DMed my friend that clue). Three of them can be easily figured out, if you know emotes, from their wiki page images but two of them I had to go visit because I couldn’t tell from their images what emotes they were doing.


  7. A tip (that I didn’t realize): You can drag emotes from the collections panel to your quickbars so that you can complete the puzzle much faster (I recommended aliases before someone told me). I assume that will be in the puzzle guide once it gets posted here but for those who can’t wait, there ya go.


    • Did you complete the meta deed that gives you the horse/armor/stag? After completing the standing stone quest, I gave all my papers to my level 66 hunter who did not go past year 7, and the standing stone was not even there for her. So I would guess that you need to have gotten all 10 scrap papers on your toon before the stone will even appear to you.


  8. I’m wondering why the Stone Trolls in Limelight Gorge don’t count.

    Also, Giant Valley in TS is not a good place to do drakes anymore, or at least not when I was there. It seemed like there was only one that was on a very slow respawn rate. I remember there used to be 4 or 5 at a time there.
