Master Cryptic Clues

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.

During a master cryptic clue, players will receive three cryptic clues and may receive a puzzle box challenge.
