    Treasure Hunt 2018 - Easter
    The Treasure Hunt will start NOW!


    It's April 1st, Easter day, 2018. You login to Age of Aincrad and find an event NPC at the spawn:
    “Welcome to Age of Aincrad! We have an easter egg for you. The faster you find it, the better the gift in the egg!
    Search for it in the Knowledge Hallway!”

    “Good Luck, adventurer!”

    Clues:
    All phases: Google is your friend.
    Phase 1 (mainthread):

    • Knowledge Hallway is a forum thread, with knowledge in it.
    • Its not the wiki, its a forum thread posted by @KaliTan
    • The thread is in Question and Queries.
    phase 2:
    • The first character of each word of the group of capitals makes the key to solving the puzzle.
    • Look at the riddle only. the rest of the thread doesn't matter.
    • the group is composed of the 4 "words" in capitals.
    • first letter or number of each "word"of the group of 4 "words" will help you decode the error code.
    phase 3:
    • look at the title.
    • The status is important. Take note of clue 1 of phase 2.
    • First letter.
    • of each line (lines are separated by "/")
    phase 4:
    • don't look at what it tells you to look at
    • play it over and over until you get it.
    • don't look at that, but look close to it.
    • in the bottom you'll find the last piece.
    • look closely to the bottom of it.
    • 4.2: the name of the file matters. it is a clue.
    • 4.2: link it up.
    phase 5:
    • Double it up.
    • pay attention to the 2 parts of the sentence.
    • Encoded.
    • 1+ encode or -1 decode in salad
    • double encoded: First salad, then vigenere
    • @Caesar is the Salad
