Cryptic clues present as common riddle clues that are found within all difficulty levels during Treasure Trails. These clues ask players to perform a range of tasks which may include speaking to an NPC, searching a specific crate, or requiring a player to dig in a random location. For the more difficult clues, players might be required to perform some side-tasks in order to complete the clue.
Medium cryptic clues may lead to a locked door or chest. When you attempt to open a locked chest, a monster will spawn. You must defeat the monster and pick up the key it drops.
