How to Break Encrypted Cipher Codes

If you’d like to have a go at breaking these Encrypted Cipher codes yourself, you’ll first need to remember the sequence: “,” which is displayed in the Quests tab.

To crack a Cipher, first, subtract each number in a Quest from the number in the sequence. Once you’ve reached the end, loop back to the beginning of the sequence. For example:

  • 1 – 0 = 1
  • 17 – 3 = 14
  • 23 – 1 = 22
  • 9 – 0 = 9
  • 14 – 2 = 12

Your new sequence of numbers will correspond to their placement in the alphabet. Which would make this code:

  • 1 = A
  • 14 = N
  • 22 = V
  • 9 = I
  • 12 = L
