I think everyone wants to be the one to solve this, and that's understandable, but no matter who solves it, or at least figures out the purpose, it will still be solved, and as Tchester says, it's inevitable for people to come and offer duplicate suggestions

@asgardian02 I did read the entire thread before proposing anything.
But any new perspective requires the repeat of the things we considered to be confirmed.
Before diving into the cistercian cypher, I stopped and thought. This grid appeared in the 13th century, in a religious Order.
Eivor, fundamentally "pagan", would not have a reason to foresee a grid used in christian manuscripts some centuries later.
I tried though to translate a series of asgard runes, but the symbols hardly match the cistercian cypher.
I dont plan to investigate further until someone from the dev team actually tells us whats going on. Everything we tried lead to a dead end..
But at least we got to see the visuals of the game, which got me entirely I will take that as my reward for now
I agree, whether it's an abandoned quest, or a real solvable mystery, the answer is in the game, but the only way to know for sure which it is, is to wait for an answer, for God's sake whatever you do don't spill a drop of coffee on your keyboard,you'll be forever making corrections
i do my dailies, still use double spears yes, its super fast and deadly
Full mentor set, with fyrd spear, cadfarch spear, viper bow
3x +chd runes, 3x +4attack runes, 1 chained perfection rune, 1x curative perfection rune,
1x chained swiftness rune, 1x brigandine rune, 4x evasion rune, 3x great life rune, 7x great warrior rune.
you could swap chained perfection out for 1x chained fury rune, but i feel i do more damage with more chd.
What have you been getting for max attack power?The evasion rune is for dodging?
you could also use the spartan bow, but thats only when dodging and with the constant slowmo finishers i feel you dont get max out of that bow, thats why i prefer viper bow.
evasion rune is for extra dodge. There is no point to keep stacking warrior rune in all your armor because at a certaon point it adds zero stats.
You constaly have to check on your stats screen if the rune you add are actually improving your stats, cos after a few of each you get diminishing returns, the game doesnt tell you this, but you can see for youself.
What you mean, what do i get for attack power?
Oh nice, we have now an offtopic
Sorry for beeing absence, was out in the real world searching runes
I´ve found one next to McDrive, was an ugly one with a lot of color
I read everything what I missed and for sure, I would also say, let´s wait some time to get fresh or maybe useful clues. Currently we are at a specific point where we have nothing more to investigate.
For sure, this is very positive and a good news because we did a really fantastic work all together and that´s why I´m happy to "work" together with you all.
Thank you all for that good feeling

Just my 2 cents:
Regarding the fireflies idea, I can at least tell that even with a captured firefly in your inventory, no prompt to release it appears when near any of the known Odin's Rune...
I followed the Bran letters last night, because I realized I had missed that "story", and caught a firefly in the ruins by letter#3, so I thought to myself, why not try?
I can also confirm, since a lot of people think the mystery's linked to the number 9, that having 9 fireflies in Raventhorpe also does nothing... (Since the one I caught last night was my tenth, I've had 9 in Raventhorpe ever since I tried solving this.)
On another note, I've seen a few people saying "I already checked that area, no need to do it again", but missing a rune is so easy that the more of us to check a given area the better IMHO. What a single pair of eyes can easily miss will eventually be seen by additional ones.
Short summary of my "Hermit" investigation:
During the funeral of Hemming Jarl you can talk again with the hermit. He is sitting in the snow far away of the people. During this conversation, he spoke with another voice which is strange for me and is absolutely not connected with the voice in his cave and / or Odin´s voice.
Also I could remember, oh, sorry, this will be a spoiler, click to read it:
So, also strange. Now we have multiple people wearing this cloak. I think, that is pure intent from the devs, or?

Listen, when this mystery was first shown there were 3 runes to find, then the next day four then the next five, there's been nothing since,with so many people looking I personally believe if there were anymore to find someone would have found it by now
