The hunt is on!

Want to win a precursor? Sign up for The Hunt for The Energizer via email to liteguild@gmail.com or in-game mail to The Charrdian before May 9th at 7:00pm EDT. Please include your account name.

The Hunt for The Energizer is a competition open to Lite guild members and allies, where the grand prize is a precursor (The Energizer). All guild members except for myself are eligible for the full competition. All allies are eligible for all prizes except for the grand prize. The competition will consist of 5-6 "rounds", depending on participation, and will take place during May and June (2017). All participants will be eligible to receive prizes. More participation will result in more/better prizes. The prize list can be found here.

The results of each round will be used for scoring. Scores will be hidden until the end of the competition. Cheating, such as providing portals to other players for jumping puzzle rounds or showing another player where a hidden location is will result in disqualification.

Requirements:
  • Heart of Thorns (for gliding)
  • Lite guild member or ally
  • Email (I won't share your email address or use it for anything but this competition.)

The Energizer was contributed by Dwaffy, other prizes were contributed by various guild members.

If you have any questions, please ask.

Round 3 - Hidden Statues
May 19 to May 28
___________________________________________________

Instructions
19 statues are hidden around the guild hall. The first 15 can be found through a series of clues. The last 4 are bonus statues. Bonus statues are well hidden, have no clues, and are worth more points.

Each statue that is a part of this puzzle can be interacted with. This will reveal a dialog box containing that statue's number and non-bonus statues will give a clue to the location of the next one.

When you find each statue, take a screenshot of your character standing in front of it with the dialogue open. Interactive with a statue through a wall or other barrier will not count. Email those screenshots to liteguild@gmail.com by May 28 at 11:00pm EDT.

Your first clue is below. Good luck!
___________________________________________________

Hints
  • One hero stands against a mighty lion.
  • No jumping puzzles are required to reach any of the statues.
  • No statues are in the sealed area in the northeast corner of the map. (No decorations can be placed there.)
  • Explore the guild hall. You may find a statue that you weren't even looking for.
  • Each statue is worth points. Don't worry if you can't find them all.
  • You need gliding lean techniques for statue #7. (There's a way to get it without that mastery, but I strongly recommend it anyway.)

Round 4 - Jumping Puzzle (Hard)
May 31 to June 11
___________________________________________________

Instructions
There is a jumping puzzle that begins near the Super Adventure Hop jumping puzzle from round 2. This jumping puzzle is designed to be difficult, but it has 10 checkpoints along the way, so you don't have to be great at platforming to participate.

Take a screenshot of as many checkpoints as you can reach, as well as the end of the jumping puzzle (if you make it that far). Email those screenshots to liteguild@gmail.com by June 11 at 11:00pm EDT.

Each checkpoint has a name. Tell me the theme of the checkpoint names in your email for bonus points.


___________________________________________________

Hints
  • You need gliding lean techniques.
  • Most checkpoints are signposts, although the sixth is a grave marker.
  • There are tricky jumps right after the 8th and 10th checkpoints. If they seem impossible, try a gentler approach.
___________________________________________________

Jumping puzzle guidelines
  • Each requested screenshot counts, so don't get discouraged if you can't complete all of them.
  • Using your own skills as a safety net is allowed (Portal, Spectral Walk, etc).
  • Using other players' portals is not allowed.
  • Guiding other players is not allowed.
  • Gliding may be required, advanced gliding mastery is recommended.
  • Officer and Exemplar ranks will not have the Decorator permission during jumping puzzle rounds.
  • The jumping puzzle leading from the guild portal to the highest point in the guild hall will be blocked during jumping puzzle rounds.

Round 5 - Challenges
June 15 to June 22
___________________________________________________

Instructions
This round consists of a set of 9 challenges. Harder challenges are worth more points. Unless we have a tie for the grand prize, this will be the final round. The deadline for challenge submissions is June 22 at 11:00pm EDT.

The first three challenges are questions. The answers can be sent to me via in-game mail to The Charrdian or email to liteguild@gmail.com. One challenge can only be completed via in-game mail, and the last five challenges can only be completed by emailing screenshots to me.

Challenge of History
What is the first and last name of the Ascalonian man who traveled Tyria with his companion, Professor Yakkington?

Challenge of Sobriety
How many red lanterns are in our guild tavern?

Challenge of Remembrance
There's one grave marker in our guild hall that is used to memorialize someone. Whose name is on that grave marker?

Challenge of Apprenticeship
Send me one of the ingredients of linseed oil via in-game mail.

Challenge of Teamwork
Send me a screenshot of you and at least one other guild member fighting a world boss or dungeon boss together.

Challenge of Adventure
Send me a screenshot of yourself getting gold in an adventure.

Challenge of War
Send me a screenshot of yourself capturing an objective in WvW.

Challenge of Victory
Send me a screenshot of yourself winning an activity or PvP match.

Challenge of Ascension
Send me a screenshot of yourself at the highest point in the guild hall.


___________________________________________________

Hints
  • Challenge of Remembrance
    • The grave marker is not hidden and is toward the center of the guild hall.
  • Challenge of Adventure
    • A list of adventures can be found here.
  • Challenge of War
    • Objectives include camps, towers, keeps, and Stonemist Castle.
  • Challenge of Ascension
    • The Oakheart's Reach mastery can be helpful, but is not required. There are 3 Oakheart's Essences placed in the guild hall.
    • The jumping puzzle that starts at the guild portal has been unblocked. Following that jumping puzzle will take you to the top of the guild hall, but it's not the only way to get there.
    • Standard jumping puzzle rules do not apply. You are allowed to guide or even portal each other for this challenge.
  • As long as you get your submissions in before the first time I log in after the deadline, I'll count them.
