The Hivemind

The Riddle of the Hivemind is a puzzle to obtain  [The Hivemind].


Step by step

This set of instructions just contains the highlights of what needs to be done but doesn't explain the puzzle or the solution.

  1. The riddle starts by buying the  [Talisman of True Treasure Tracking] from Griftah in the market of the Lower City in Shattrath City.
  2. Four objects on the table behind will light up in various colors once the talisman is equipped: Red Fish - Green Feather - Yellow Pyramid - Blue Letter from Ms. Graham
  3. The colors allude to four pairs of monocles:  [Blue Crystal Monocle],  [Green Crystal Monocle],  [Red Crystal Monocle] & the  [Yellow Crystal Monocle].
  4. The Red Crystal Monocle, represented by a fish, is sold by Sir Finley Mrrgglton in the Shimmering Expanse in Vashj'ir. But the murloc does not take cash. To barter with him, local goods are needed.
  5. The Yellow Crystal Monocle, represented by a pyramid, is looted from the Star-touched Chest found in the Halls of Origination.
  6. The Green Crystal Monocle, represented by a feather, is looted from the Sun-Worn Chest in Skyreach.
  7. The Blue Crystal Monocle is obtained by following the trail of letters from Ms. Graham, leading finally to the Gift from Ms. Graham.
  8. With all the monocles collected, it's time to head to Suramar [41, 69].
  9. Upstairs in the house at this location,is a door barred by four beams of light. The lights of the beams fit with the collected monocles. To pass, the lights must be deactivated. Now it is time to team up with four like-minded individuals.
  10. Four withered in Suramar hold the key to entering the room: Rikei, Blom'an, Giluzui, Yorilan. Bringing all four to low health at the same time, will casue them to cast a spell lowering their respective beam for a very brief time. If all four are brought down at the same time, the fifth adventurer may loot the Lost Cat Toy.
  11. Interacting with the toy, will teleport the adventurer outside and give them a random 5-digit amount of damage. This number will act as a code, unique for the team, for the next step.
  12. Petting the cats in Court of Stars they will summon an Ominous Orb. Click the orb to progress.
  13. The orb teleports your crew to the upper part of a tower where a wide gap must be traversed by jumping on a series of Phaseshifting Platforms.
  14. Crossing the gap, on the other side of a large door, is a bridge filled with what could be described as "Arcane Lava". Above flies a Lightlock.

The Red Crystal Monocle

With the talisman equipped, many creatures of the deep are now willing to trade their local goods with you. These goods will not last forever, and as such, planning is needed to make the deal with the eloquent murloc in time.
