Would somebody please repost the comprehensive list of possible solutions for the DQ1 room order riddle?

thanks, but no, thanks.

I think Loki posted it originally, before teh forums cataclysm. If I understand correctly, it is a comprehensive list of all the possible combinations for the room orders. Very simple to cross reference upon entering the quest and completely eliminates having to determine what the second and third rooms are.

What's so hard about:

The book reads (random runes):
A - 1st to draw blood.
B and C - never cross each other.
D is close to E.
F gets the killing blow.

There are a few possible combinations.
A is always be first.
B or C could be second.
D or E could be third.
Remaining D or E is fourth.
Remaining B or C is fifth.
F is last.

not to be an ungrateful jerk or anything, because i do appreciate the "help," but this is not what i'm asking for and it is already available elsewhere in the forums.

Just curious. Are you sure it exists? You did say previously "If I understand correctly, it is a comprehensive list..." which lends some doubt. I don't see how a list could exist given the randomness that would prohibit an exact solution every time.

and just fyi you are coming across as ungrateful so if this last bit of "help" isn't what you'd like to see, please keep in mind that I won't be coming back to see your witty retort.

The list that had been posted was not complete because at the time the puzzle still had a 2% chance to send players to the undead room. The solution posted above is one of the better ways to avoid the undead room.

As of my limited understanding of the exact order of swords two and five and swords three and four are not given by the riddle. they are both 50/50 chances once you find the correct one of a set then the other slots in nicely where shown in the post above. So a set if you read this then this is the order is not possible.

I hope this answer is found helpful.

There is a limited number of paterns tho. So every riddle combo only has 1 solution, allot of my friends have a table wrote down for it so they never get it wrong, not even 1 part..

But I have no idea what it is sorry.

ooo, new info!

I wasn't ever willing to test and write down all the possible permutations and honestly, I never thought it wasn't random 50/50.

I'll be linking this to my quest guide, that is some great info!

Ya, I didn't know they cheezed out and only did 20+ hardcoded options rather than the 700+ that could have been if it was truely random following the formula they created.
