The Twisted Hunt is now upon us. If you are unfamiliar with this event, it is the hardest hunt on the grid. This is not a boast. It is rock solid fact. However, in spite of the difficulty of having hunt items moving constantly, a lack of a hint blog (you have to get hints through the group chat), and as many invisible decoys as you can eat, merchants and the organizers make this one of the most fun. In addition to the many fine gifts you can find in the normal part of the hunt, a lot of merchants give out extra gifts in their decoy boxes, put out gachas, have lots of sales, and go the extra mile with various games and mazes and mini hunts as well. If you’re in the mood for a bit of grid hopping, this is definitely a solid and fun event with a fun group of people in the group helping each other out.
When you start the hunt, you are probably going to be OCD about it and go from the beginning to the endgame in order. This works really well, but you can also skip around, if you find yourself having difficulty finding various items at first. Don’t ever despair if you can’t find an item because chances are that item is going to find a new location at some point during the hunt. They usually do.
If you do wish to start at the very beginning, the Twisted Headquarters is located here. There are some fun gifts set out there, as well as hunt instructions, urls, and everything you might need to make your life a bit easier (or harder, as the case may be).
As you might have guessed by the picture heading this blog post, the item you need to find is a Hellraiser Puzzle Box. It will be Eggplant colored (or Aubergine, if you’re bent that way). For the color-impaired, that’s a kind of purple concoction. The box will be spinning. It will have edges. Use hints to find it, or just try to find it on your own. It’s recommended that you don’t use area search or wireframe. These methods will only lead to tears of frustration.
Avatar Bizarre is happy to be a long-time sponsor and quarter organizer of this event. It is the 2nd stop on the official hunt docket, and you will not only find a male and a female gift (eventually), but there are also many, many gachas. IN addition to the gachas, there is a traditional limited edition shoulder pet cthulhu available for 50L. It will only be available for the duration of the hunt.
If you’d like to see some of the hunt gifts blogged, Shadowed Darkfury is providing some bloggishness for everyone.
The Twisted Hunt runs March 1-31, has 105 stores participating, plus the endgame with all of its goodies. Good luck!
