Crucial Clues for Trophy 68

Summary of Hints: This is something that is very, very easy to do, can be done by a new account on the first day, and involves typing a pop culture reference into the interface.

When trying to spade Trophy 68, remember the following hints given on the radio show on 2/16/09 by Jick:

Q: New account get it on first day? J: Yes

Full list of given hints

  • it was rolled out with NS13.
  • it's not the kind of thing you can be "close to getting" (no counter in database)
  • it's a pop-culture reference
  • it's easy to do (Jick quote + CDMoyer was qualifying for it on radio in a minute)
  • however, can be screwed up (CDMoyer screwed it up when tried on the radio but confirmed afterwards that it actually was his mistake rather than trophy not working)
  • "you have to use some part of the interface and do something" (CDMoyer quote)
  • a new account can get it on their first day
  • a player in Hardcore or BadMoon can get it
  • it doesn't have to do with numbers 11, 23 or 37
  • the number of the trophy itself (#68 ) doesn't have to do with anything
  • HotStuff wants to give a clue, but not until they add more trophies to the game
  • CDMoyer confirmed typing that happened during the attempt to get trophy. (possibly trophy is related to places requiring typing: notes, the mall, account, messages, chat, graffiti wall, pvp, the strange leaflet, familiar names, profile, and summoning chamber).
--Hrag 16:07, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

I would also remind people that TPTB are very much against spoilers, so that will rule out anywhere a player could stumble across it (ie, the mall, the wall, familiar names, profile). --James111222 19:00, 20 March 2009 (UTC)

Uh, i might be totally wrong here, but when CDMoyer tested it, there were a buttload of chat commands out i think right? so some of that key work could be him typing chat commands such as /equip or /go or /cook etc. right?--Coolness 21:14, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

From the June 11th radio show, "Q: Can you get trophy 68 without completing the altar of literacy? J: Yes. Actually it's impossible to get the trophy if you have completed the quest" --->I'm going to hope that Jick is making a joke. --Sparksol (t|c) 22:18, 13 June 2009 (UTC) --->Yes, this was a joke, do not consider the comment to have been a hint Stickiepants 22:52, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Let's have a list of places where people can type and pros and cons for each.

  • quests notes: pro: private, one trophy already uses this
  • colossal closet: pro: private, closet used for another trophy
  • the mall: store name: cons: very visible, can't change in hardcore

  • the mall: item quantity
  • account profile: location: cons: very visible
  • account profile: age: cons: very visible
  • account profile: website: cons: very visible
  • account profile: quote: cons: very visible

  • kmail: message body: pros: wasn't there a nigerian scam hint?
  • kmail: player search
  • chat: cons: very visible
  • graffiti wall: cons: very visible
  • strange leaflet: cons: can't get on first day pros: one trophy from leaflet already, leaflet gives other things
  • familiar name: cons: very visible
  • outfit name:
  • demon name (summoning chamber): pro: private, one trophy already uses this
  • altar of literacy: cons: don't get to redo, even in HC

Remember to be case sensitive Stickiepants 23:05, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

You forgot the Gift Shop; going to the back room, you can write notes/send items. Pros: Private, doesn't cost much meat Lady Oolong 01:01, 20 June 2009 (UTC) Didnt they decide that anything can be gotten on the first day as long as it does require multi day operations (bounty hunt outfit and higher,olfaction tome, pompedour, combo of multiple bounty items,limited time non-tradables etc.)or more than 300 adventures to qualify for it? Help from experienced players counts as first day, and they didnt say first day of ascension.so leaflet could be gotten day 1--Coolness 20:51, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Custom Outfit

  • Name a custom outfit "Nigerian" or "Spam Witch" --Weasel Measle 13:05, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Send a Nigerian Scam letter to a contact. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 21:34, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Day one for new/badmoon players - Mosquito familiar. Typing - name a familiar. --raorn 17:23, 27 March 2009 (UTC)

Gift Shop

  • Several variations on the theme "Dick In a Box" (from the song: 1: cut a hole in the box, 2, put your dick in the box, 3, make her open the box). However 3 remains untested untill the person I sent stuff to leaves HC. Uses the <3 shaped box, "Dick" on the note, various item combos including WANGs, plot holes, etc. Details here. Lady Oolong 01:08, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Ideas tried that do not fit the clues

  • Has anyone tried visiting the trophy hut with*1337 orcs: Spend 1337 adventures in the Valley Beyond the Orc Chasm. (Can't be done first day. --Club (#66669) (Talk))
  • What about the old leaflet? It involved typing and such. --Gruegirl 05:35, 13 June 2009 (UTC) --->That already has a trophy, an item and a permable skill, so quite a lot for a little side-thing like that. Plus you'd have to make it to level 9 on the first day, which is a bit of an ask. --Phelyan 07:47, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Could it be sending someone a Wang in a (less-than-three-shaped) box? (I can't test this at the moment; in Ronin). --TheArchivist 20:25, 21 May 2009 (UTC) -->>Tried in a plain brown wrapper and a less-than-three-shaped box. No go. --Club (#66669) (Talk)
  • Serious housing downgrade: something better than an Instant House being replaced with a Newbiesport tent. Maybe in hardcore. Sandcastle -> Newbiesport in causal yeilds nothing. --Club (#66669) (Talk) (Doesn't require typing. --Valliant 22:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC))
  • Support the habit: Buying 1000 goofballs in a single ascension, so that the last one costs a million meat by itself. (Unlikely, as it would cost just short of 500 million meat.)
  • Suport the habit V2 (by Ironcheff :P): Do an entire run constantly hopped up on goofballs. Needs to be tried in all types of runs (SC, HC, HCO, BM etc)
    • Problem: Trophy is supposed to be available on day 1.
  • Bad Moon familiars - Hatch a rare familiar in bad moon or bad moon Terrarium weight? (Can't be done on day 1 with a new character. --Valliant 22:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC))
  • Rocky Horror - Using a grue as familiar, equipped with a tiny plastic sweet nutcracker, having the black tongue effect active and adventuring in the Tropical Paradise Island Getaway until you get the adventure "With just 7MP, I can make you a man" (doesn't require typing. --Valliant 22:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC))
  • incredibly unskilled: Purchase no skills for an entire BM run. (Can't be done on day 1 with a new character. --Valliant 22:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC))
  • Spend X adventures in the Dungeons of Doom or the Orc Chasm wearing alpha-mail pants / fez of etymology (suggested by Pastangum)(doesn't require typing. --Valliant 22:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC))
  • Eat 60 Double Bacon Beelzeburgers, 10 orders of Lords of the Flieses-sized Fries, and eight Jumbo Dr. Lucifers (Worst Meal of My Life?)--Parse 16:18, 16 January 2009 (UTC). (Can't be done on day 1 with a new character. --Valliant 22:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC))
  • Have 1000 or similar number of turns of Full of Vinegar or other full of vinegar related things. (Doesn't require typing. --Valliant 22:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC))
  • Spend the entire first day of a run resting (Doesn't require typing. --Valliant 22:52, 15 March 2009 (UTC))

Attempting to buy some number of items from The Market or the Hermitage. I'd guess 42, perhaps? --Morgoth1145 00:55, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Has anyone tried to ascend a brand new account in one day? Is that even possible?--MCScaredOfBees 12:52, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
    • Yes, it can be done with a generous sponsor. Keep in mind that it can't be done in Bad Moon though and this trophy can be gained in bad moon. --Bale 06:18, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
  • Has anyone tried getting 100, 500, or 1000 turns of Gothy and then using a Warm Subject gift certificate for the first(or multiple) time that ascension? What about in HC/HCO/BM?--Mrmongoose 05:24, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Also attempted just in case: completely clearing out one mining spot at the Itznotyerzitzmine.--Sparksol (t|c) 20:51, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

  • Get a spell overflow effect and then use one of the free runaway effects to take it outside of combat, trying to purchase it with such an effect active. --Improv 04:49, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
  • Offered 11 Amulet of Yendor at The Altar of Literacy. Nothing. --Shoptroll 22:29, 13 July 2009 (UTC)
