Official Cryptic Clue Fest Event Walkthrough – RuneScape

This is the official guide for the Cryptic Clue Fest!

Many players need help with clues and how to easily get them. Many players also have unfinished clues that they want to be done but can’t continue. Along with many other players that also want clues but never get one. But now, this guide will help you with getting them done and how to get one.

These are the items you need for the first clue, when the second, third and fourth come out, I will add the solution to this thread.

Here is the first solution:

Cake – Rope 2
Cane – Shrimp (Cooked) 3
Cate – Bronze Med. Helm 1
Care – Lobster (raw) 2

Bake – Iron Dagger 1
Bane – Pot (Possibly unfired I can’t tell) 3
Bate – Tin ore 3
Bare – Bucket 1

Rake – Potatoe 2
Rane – Logs (Normal or possibly oak) 1
Rate – Banana 8
Rare – Cowhide 1

The second one is yet to come. Bookmark, and if you have any questions just post a comment!

  23. Sir Crane II
    Posted November 28, 2009 at 10:40 am

    I can only figure out the first answer of the third clue (today’s).

    I think he has 6 threads left over

    Collar – 5 (half the hem)
    Trim – 10 (given)
    Hem – 10 (given)
    Sleeves – 20 (4 times collar)
    Sides – 4 (five times less than the sleeves) -divide 20/5=4

    Making 6 the leftovers

  24. Anon.
    Posted November 28, 2009 at 10:40 am

    thanx, i was stuck with the jugs.

  25. Sir Crane II
    Posted November 28, 2009 at 10:41 am

    I get the water. But why is Fred entitled to half? He did semi-less work?

  26. Anon.
    Posted November 28, 2009 at 10:51 am

    Fred planted more other ploughed? more. together they did 50:50 work.

  27. Boom
    Posted November 28, 2009 at 11:31 am

  28. keeekoooo

    WHAT ARE THE ITEMS!!

  45. Lady Dragonbat
    Posted November 29, 2009 at 11:00 am

    Answer for day 4 clue’s 3 Small Nets
    10 Air Runes
    7 Cabbages

    How? You’re taking 8 off every number, therefore 11 – 8 = 3
    Which means you pick every third letter in his worded clue which leaves you with those items Once you’ve taken these item’s to Frauq the final clue is revealed & the leader of the group is Roddeck in Lumbridge
    Our leader is south of a furnace and east of a store,
    Seek him out and you’ll search no more,
    He’s north of a bard and west of a river,
    Find him now for he calls you hither

  46. Uchiha123
    Posted November 29, 2009 at 11:00 am

    Puzzle 1

    Let me introduce Mod Mark H, Mod Kathy and Mod Crow. Each of them is going to tell you *one* of the items you will need. The only problem is – only one of them is telling the truth.

    Mod Mark H: “You need a Cabbage”
    Mod Kathy: “You need an Egg”
    Mod Crow: “You need a Potato”

    But who is lying?

    Mod Mark H: “Don’t believe Mod Kathy; she always lies! She stole my princess crown!”
    Mod Kathy: “Don’t listen to Mod Crow; he lies! He isn’t even a real bird!”
    Mod Crow: “Don’t listen to either of them; they are both lying. They are both lesser beings, after all!”

    Figure out who is telling the truth – you’ll need three of their item!

    Puzzle 2

    Below are five objects. One is the ‘Odd One Out’. The ‘Odd One Out’ is the kind of object you will need for this task. You’ll need eight of this object.

    *Chisel
    *Ruby Necklace
    *Pot
    *Coif
    *Basket

    Puzzle 3

    Ah, here’s one of my favourite little rhymes. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

    “As I was travelling to Falador, one bright and sunny day, I came across a group of knights, heading towards the other way.

    There were thirteen knights in total, each noble in their attire. Each knight then had three attendants – officials known as squires.

    Each peasant lad was charged with caring for three mules, or t’would be their hides. Each mule had then two packs apiece, in each pack a coin to pay glad tithes.

    The number of coins the party possessed – this you must unravel! For the same amount of golden coins will surely complete your travel!”

    i’m not gonna tell you the items.. i’ll let you work it out but here’s a hint for you…
    go onto forums
    then scroll down to community and click “creative gameplay” (the anagram for active game players)
    then click forum specific rules at the top of that page (forum specific rules is the anagram of rescues our cliff imp)
    then when on the specific rules page scroll down for the clues =)
    hope this helps =)

  68. Posted November 29, 2009 at 12:57 pm
