Default Tranquil Thought (Lucent Circle neck questline)

So I'm on this step where you're supposed to solve a riddle... and the clues it gives you are a note that reads

My first is in risk but not in safety.
My second alone distinguishes creatures marred by single sight.
My third and fourth spell both death and destruction.
My fifth begins anew what is loved.
Yet my sixth marks the start of the early grave.

and at the waypoints there are clickable tablets, that I assume you have to click in order...

the names are
Nitoci
Hordji
Retenu
Medjay
Bakare
Corbla

.... I think maybe they have to do with anchient egypt... only misspelled? otherwise they are just completely nonsensical to me... someone please help lol...

Is this supposedly common knowledge to anyone?... wtf is there even any lore relating to these in the game really?

Letters.

Try:

Medjay
Hordji
Corbla
Bakare

I haven't tried this ingame, just sat here and read the puzzle.

Here is how it works:

My first is in risk but not in safety.

Retenu
(first word = first letter = R)

My second alone distinguishes creatures marred by single sight.

Nitoci
(i = eye, 2nd word, 2nd letter) see the pattern?

My third and fourth spell both death and destruction.

Medjay
Hordji
(third word, third letter, fourth word, fourth letter)

My fifth begins anew what is loved.

Corbla
(fifth word, fifth letter)


Yet my sixth marks the start of the early grave.

Bakare
(sixth word, sixth letter)

I like the twist that the riddle spells out the word: "Riddle". - I had immense fun doing the quest (serverfirst on Infineum). Keep em coming!

And don't spoil them on the boards. You people are a bunch of spoilsports

I nor the rest of my group had any info from the tabs after clicking them. It said reading the inscription but never gave me any text as to reference to the riddle.

So I simply noticed that one of the runes was not clcikable more than once. That my my indication that there was even a specific order needed. Then I just systematicly eliminated all the runes by using clicking the first rune then any of the others, then back to the first to make sure it was not clickable.

If it was indeed not clickable then I knew the order that I clciked them up to that point was correct.

The tablets are listed in your journal, all 6 of them have their own waypoint so I simply labled them using those waypoints. Had to invis to tablet, click it and then run off. Rinse and repeat until I had figured out the correct order.

I would much rather have had to decipher the riddle had I the option so I would suggest maybe looking into why the tablets did not have lables nor did they give me any text after clciking them. There was no way to refference them to the riddle.

Mhhh... the inscription is not to read by clicking them... it's shown in the tooltip just by hoovering the cursor over it.

I had that problem when I was doing the quest.

That is because I had press ALT to see tool tips selected.

Some tips just need to override that function. I just can't play with giant windows telling me that I'm casting a spell that I've used for the past 3 months, but knowing the name of somethign that I need to know for a quest. Yeah that'd be useful

Yup, that would be the reason then. I'm guesing my whole group as well as myself and another person I saw running around the place invis all had that setting turned on so none of us noticed.

In hind sight I still think the quest would be even better if you did have to actualy read the inscription first then it would show in your chat what it said.

Like your actualy taking some time to decipher the text off the old half broken down tablets.

I click on Retenu after having the quest, and nothing changes. I can keep clicking on it over and over -- and the tablet doesn't disappear, nor does my quest update that I've clicked the first one. Clicking my amulet does nothing. I tried the other tablets, and its the same thing -- you can keep clicking on them, a "reading inscription" window pops up, and then after its done reading -- nothing changes.

Any suggestions?

This riddle is weird in that it is hard to tell if you're on the right track. The way to tell is that the one you are supposed to click first will not be clickable once you've clicked it (will not have the exclamation mark) if you have not made a mistake. So you figure out where to start, then you can try the others and check back at the first one to see if it is still okay. If the tablet you are supposed to start with has the exclamation mark again, then you need to start over!

Thanks,

Psi
