A mystery in Tibia is most commonly defined by places that can be seen, but not entered. Some kind of a construct that looks like there is more to it. In most cases there is even great literature ingame concerning these subjects, yet no one seems to be able to pierce this veil of secrets.
Why is there a Banshee in an unreachable room in the The Desert Dungeon Quest area? What does the teleport inside do? What does the hidden lever below the rock do? Is this connected to the hidden fire devil lair below the surface of the northern Jakundaf Desert? How can these Magic Walls be removed to get into the room? How can we cross the lava to reach the other lever?
This is a fraction of the questions that remain unanswered regarding this mystery. Of course there are always people claiming to have solved it, Knightmare himself once stated himself that every mystery in Tibia can be solved. Unfortuanetly there is no evidence whatsoever that this is true.
However, before I get into great details, these are the big mysteries driving people crazy:
The Serpentine tower
The Bonelord language (469)
The Banshee in the Desert
The Sword of Fury
There are more mysteries than only those, such as the demona pentagram, the Griffin Shield Quest in combination with the Basilisk , the edron poison tower etc. but let us stick to the ones mentioned above.
To give you a general idea about these mysteries, what people expect to get and what they are trying to do, this is it:
The Serpentine tower:
Endless stories about this seemingly infinite mystery sizzle through time, the basic concept is, that there are 3 creatures in the basement, a Vampire , a Behemoth , a Fire Elemental and on the lowest floor a Blue Djinn . You can release the Fire Elemental without any problem, but what is next? The lever next to the Djinn does nothing and the Empty Coal Basin don't seem to interact with anything. Literally everything has been tried to make something happen here, from pouring blood all over the floor to setting the entire place on fire, trying to sacrifice stuff on the basins and even letting the character die in certain spots. Nothing has ever worked. All we know stems from the books we can read, and those tell a long story about a dark pharao working seperately from the others south of the Serpentine tower, he has been brought down by bombing his place and it sunk in the ocean. Now there is a dark pyramid in Draconia that has risen in these hell-like depths. Fittingly with damage that looks like it has been inflicted by bombing. But this is where the lead ends, there are spots unaccessable by us explorers.
Solving the quest promises a great fortune! Fame and Praises from all Tibians and probably the gods themselves and the opportunity to obtain an item that people have been dreaming about for literally years! -> Boots of Waterwalking and Ring of Wishes are just a few displayed in the tower.
Despite those obvious reasons there has always been a huge appeal to the unknown, everyone wants to achieve something that was believed to be impossible.
Now many believe that there has never been a mystery solved in Tibia, this is false. One of the struggles the old veterans had to think their way through was the Bright Sword quest. Try the quest yourself without a spoiler and have fun with it.
Another good example for a mystery that as been solved is The Paradox Tower Quest . Now you might consider the rewards of these quests as ridiculous and disappointing, but imagine them being unsolved. EVERYONE would be craving for a Bright Sword or Phoenix Egg .
This is an increasingly frustrating fact, it has been well over 12 years that nothing has been accomplished anymore and the community, still trying to get somewhere is getting demotivated very quickly now. If CIP would decide to give some hints concerning these mysteries, a whole wave of euphoria would break out and make people go crazy, it would be the perfect move for CIP as a company and an awesome experience for all of us explorers.
This most likely has multiple reasons. They themselves have stated, that they don't want to lift the secret and the mystery about this part of Tibia, which on the one hand ist fairly reasonable, on the other hand however counter-productive, people are just getting annoyed by the state of the game and they need some motivation. Another possibility is, that those are just unfinished quests, something the game designers worked on, but abandoned after a while. They might have left the areas ingame just to fill the void with something to look at. THIS WOULD BE CRUEL.
Please CIP, give us some hints or at least a hint to either free us from the burden of trying to solve this or at least give us an updated statement to this subject, we are craving for a light at the end of the tunnel! (or just tell me personally via pm) ;D.
Now let us take a closer look at the great mystery of the Bonelord language, the most in depth riddle there possibly is, a topic with infinite possibilites and crazy thoughtprocesses.
Neroox memories of childhood and youth
A journey through cave and forest searching for truth
Mystery of the language still to be found
The burden of solving can't be unbound
This is a mystery so deep and interesting that I couldn't help but get poetic.
It all begins here:
This is the great library, inhabited by A Wrinkled Bonelord . This library is filled with books written in the Bonelord language, consisting of numbers and numbers only. To provide you with a glimpse, this is one of the books:
5 6 1 1 4 5 7 2 7 8 5 7 2 6 1 1 8 5 7 6 4 3 6 4 6 7 2 4 3 5 3 4 5 2 7 5 6 0 1 9 2 8 8 9 5 2 1 9 7 3 5 3 6 4 6 7 2 4 9 6 8 4 7 5 6 0 1 9 9 6 8 4 7 7 0 9 0 8 8 9 5 2 1 9 7 2 7 8 1 6 7 0 5 1 2 1 6 4 8 5 6 1 1 4 5 1 9 1 9 9 1 1 8 0 0 3 6 4 6 8 8 9 5 2 1 9 9 1 1 8 0 0 6 5 1 2 8
