Welcome to the first annual Scwufflehunt, designed to mark the first year of Ganker Squad. So what's it about...
For those new to the guild, I have run a few treasure hunt style events in the past, typically consisting of clues that lead to locations, which lead to the hiding spot of one of the Myon family. Ely got lost looking for snax once, Aira was investigating some ruins and ... got lost, so needed finding.
This year, scwuffy isn't lost! However she IS making some soop (or something akin to soop, its based on one of Yuffis recipes, minus the Marmite).
The general rules have been slightly changed this year.
Firstly this is both a scavenger hunt and a race. People can work together (cos no one can stop you) or alone (so posting progress isnt a good idea )
You will have 2 tasks, which will be described in detail in the post below, upon the assigned date (Sunday 12th June).
Task 1 - Will be to gather items and screenshots (as proof of visiting) of locations based upon the recipe that Scwuffy provides. It's no good finding Scwuffy without these items, as the Soop can only be made with the correct ingredients.
Task 2 - Will be to find Scwuffy and deliver these ingredients to her at the hidden location, information on that location will be cryptically given in the post below the ingredients.
You can of course choose which to work on first, but in order to be successful, you need both her location, and the ingredients.
Proof of the ingredients list (name of items, screenshots of locations found etc) and a nice screenshot of Scwuffy by her cauldron making the Soop will win you the event!
The prize is 100 Gold!
Additionally, the closest second place person, will win a Sample of the Soop. (worth about 15-16g as long as no one puts Marmite in it).
Further instructions and whatnot will be provided on the day, I will be uncontactable in game during the event, which is to last from 11am - 11pm BST (UTC+1) However I shall be on Teamspeak, where no hints or clues will be given.
It is strongly suggested to use a character with FULL map completion, I'm not ruling out locations within the guild hall, HoT maps or any of the core tyrian locations. Only PVP and WVW, as well as personal instances are out of bounds as far as this is concerned.
If you have any questions, let me know via in game email, otherwise, happy hunting!
