The Riddler’s Mind-Worm

A few months ago, screenshots of this mysterious mount were popping up from everywhere on my twitter feed. Granted, I thought it looked pretty ugly, but I got very curious nonetheless.

Apparently, in order to get this mount, you have to solve a puzzle that consists of riddles where you have to hunt down pages across Azeroth in a certain order. Thanks to the Secret Finding Discord Community and the online guide of Nightswifty, we managed to get the Riddler’s Mind-Worm in no time.

I still wonder how anyone could have possibly solved this puzzle, I completely fail to see the logic. Anyway, I love to explore and I find it exciting to know that there are still hidden secrets in the game. I wonder how many more of these are there, ready to be discovered… Maybe, one day, another genius mind will uncover another mystery in Azeroth.

In the meantime, here is an ordered list of the pages and where to find them:

  • Page 9 …of Sea, Spirit and self… : Inside Legerdemain Lounge ground floor on the bookshelf in Dalaran.
  • Page 78 …first of lords to fall… : Duskwood, on the table near the moonwell in Twilight Grove.
  • Page 161 …the wind, the eye… : Inside Firelands, on the left wall of the Ragnaros platform.
  • Page 655 …the plume, the tomb, a scarab moon… : East of the Lost City of the Tol’vir : between the two small trees.
  • Page 845 …in snow, sand, and stone… : In the Sha of Pride room from Siege of Orgrimmmar (in the far back left corner of the room).
  • Page 1127 …behold the battle, unblinking… : Inside the Well of Eternity dungeon from Caverns of Time (on the first stairs).
  • Page 2351…bejeweled watcher… : Near the Shado-Pan Monastery in Kun-Lai Summit : Between the paws of the left tiger stature.
  • Page 5555 …ray of sunrise… : Uldum : at the base of the statue.
  • Gift of the Mind-Seeker is found on the west coast of Westfall (hidden in a little boat wreck).

Note that you have to finish all before the weekly reset, otherwise you’ll have to restart from scratch. Unlike the rumours spread all over the internet, this doesn’t take much time at all and is easily soloable. I had much fun doing this with Sardoken one Sunday afternoon (no, it didn’t require the entire afternoon!) and I would gladly do something like this again, once presented!

Happy hunting!

    Hahaha, looks like you were doing some Azeroth tourism. Best holiday resort ever imo ^^

    Yeah, some things are very well hidden and are hard to discover. It’s one of my favourite things in the game. Just when you think you’ve discovered it all… surprise! 😀

    Congrats on one hideous mount!

    I too have no idea how they manage to solve these cases. I guess, lots of time, a keen eye and tons of players joined together?

    Thank you for a list over what the notes say – I did it with a friend (read: I followed my friend around, cluelessly, and while I was swimming around in the ocean, I sometimes had to pay attention and click some kind of page), so I had no idea what was going on, hah 😀

    I’m rarely on the hype train, but it was right after the discovery of this, so it was all pretty crowded everywhere.

    Hidden things are so fantastic. Only, I wish they were a little easier to figure out for me, personally :p

    Oh, swimming in the ocean is just my thing, I guess 😀

    I know!
    I’m running around putting out and honoring fires right now, the hardest part for me is not to stray. I pass by so many places I “juuuuust” want to explore a little…

    It’s very tempting to wander off in the game, completely forgetting what you were actually doing. There’s always something catching my eye, whether it’s a new discovery or something magnificent I completely forgot about…

    Especially while doing the world events… I love those cause it makes you return to the old zones. I always wonder if they’ll ever come up with new world events (bigger than the new micro ones). I would really love that 🙂

    Have fun exploring and extinguishing/honoring all those fires ^^ Don’t wander off too far though, I wouldn’t want you to get lost ;p

    Glad I am not alone in wandering off. 🙂 Yes, exactly, normally I do not play with high music sound on – I’m all about the ambience, but despite the big revamp Cataclysm brought, there are still many places with their original music on. Oh, the memories when running through it during these world events…

    How does a day in the life of Soforah and Sardoken look like, I wonder 🙂

    I think I have gotten lost so often that it is now the new normal. :p Thanks though!

    Grats on obtaining the mount! I’ve started it a few times but get distracted easily, so haven’t managed to finish it before reset yet.

    Love hidden mysteries and puzzles. Although I have no clue how they managed to solve it, it’s really fascinating to read about!

    Thanks Bryssa 🙂

    I think it must have taken them a looooot of time to have figured out this one… These kind of mysteries and puzzles make me fall in love with WoW over and over again 🙂 Just love it!
