Ciphers

So there's an achievement called "The Dantooine Cipher" where you click on 5 books scattered around Dantooine. There are 4 in various buildings and 1 on Polly's island. You don't seem to get anything for doing it other than the achievement so I have no idea what it's for but apparently there are similar achievements on Rishi and Ossus now too.

I've found 4/5 on Rishi but I can't find the fifth one. The first 4 have either been in the slums or the main boardwalk area. I've only found 1 on Ossus so far, in the tunnel between the Canyons and the northern area.

Edit: Finished Ossus ciphers, just looking for Rishi #5 now.

Any ideas what these are for?

They are achievements. They serve as something else you can do outside of repeating the same dailies or heroics or FPs or Ops or Ups endlessly or playing through the story on yet another character.

Well I finished finding them all and you don't get an extra achievement or item or anything.

I was just wondering if doing them all unlocks anything because the text says things like "You know the cipher's code, though not what it belongs to..." and "the cipher appears capable of cracking a code, this may prove useful in the future."

One of the books is near Poly, might be the one you are missing. also there is a hidden mission that awards the players a treasure, but it is currently unfinished or bugged since i got nothing from it apart from 222 command points.

I published a guide on all of this a few days ago, I've only got the Rishi Chipers to include. Not looking forward to it

Nice!

I did end up finding all the Rishi ones. I'll put them under spoilers if you want to know the locations. I don't have screenshots though.

That's about everything now, aside from the unfinished fruit achievement this is a complete guide to all non combat Dantooine Achievements, including Volumes on Ossus/Rishi. https://www.myexpanse.net/articles/d...evements-guide

The only one I can't seem to find is #3 on Ossus. Found all the rest. Been all over the ruins where it should be.
