I got my first lockbox key just a while ago.

SBA 48 - Murky Depths (Bottom Right, Puzzle 3 - Dark area at the left, Walk into the light)

Early yesterday morning, I idly clicked on Chrome.

I saw BW2 and thought my mind had finally snapped because my game has been missing since February. That's THREE MONTHS of hardship beyond belief!!!

Thanks for posting locations of Secret Bonus Areas.

It's sooooo good to be home.

Hi Graywinter,

I come up with 11. I changed the equals sign after 34 to a plus and added a parenthesis before 162 to even out the parenthesis pairs; hope it matches the equation Kryptik handed you - might want to double check just to be sure. Happy hunting!

((34=(((1x162-((8/(21-17))x18)))/3)-27))-48)x11
((34+(((1x(162-((8/(21-17))x18)))/3)-27))-48)x11
((34+(((1x(162-((8/4)x18)))/3)-27))-48)x11
((34+(((1x(162-(2x18)))/3)-27))-48)x11
((34+(((1x(162-36))/3)-27))-48)x11
((34+(((1x126)/3)-27))-48)x11
((34+((126/3)-27))-48)x11
((34+(42-27))-48)x11
((34+15)-48)x11
(49-48)x11
1x11
11

Oh, dear. I'm stuck on this one.

66-((64+(44-((77-(2x(56-50)))-31)))-44

Any help will be greatly appreciated

wildgamer:

I came up with 64 but you are missing a ) assuming it was at the end

66-((64+(44-(77-(2x(56-50)))-31)))-44 )

if the parentheses is not at the end, it could change the out come BTW area 64 is in the Nimbus village.

Tracy,

Thanks for the reply.
Indeed the ) is at the end of the equation.

I have several problems with the number 64. I am not that far i the game. My list shows that Nimbus Village is number 68. That 64 is Summer Village.

I have gotten 3 different answers but my quest item doesn't drop from any of them.

66-((64+(44-(77-(2x(56-50)))-31)))-44 )

So difficult.

wildgamer,

Try 36, but first please check with Kryptik and double check the equation I used; I had to add an open parenthesis in front of 77 otherwise you end up with three factors in a parenthesis and previous experience shows that they always have two.
Plus it helps "consume" the parenthesis pairs logically.

Original equation:
66-((64+(44-(77-(2x(56-50)))-31)))-44 )
66-((64+(44-(77-(2x6))-31)))-44 )
66-((64+(44-(77-12)-31)))-44 )
66-((64+(44-65-31)))-44 )

Here is the updated equation and solution.
66-((64+(44-((77-(2x(56-50)))-31)))-44 )
66-((64+(44-((77-(2x6))-31)))-44 )
66-((64+(44-((77-12)-31)))-44 )
66-((64+(44-(65-31)))-44 )
66-((64+(44-34))-44 )
66-((64+10)-44 )
66-(74-44 )
66-30
36

Happy hunting!

Easy peasy. Go to an online calculator with parenthesis, put in the formula, get the answer. Go to BW2 wiki secret areas, look up the right one, look at the picture and read the info. Then go there.

Helps Emensely! Though I wish some of the missing numbers were in there. Partly because I'm lazy [wry chuckle] but partly because trying to sort out what number equals what SBA from the wiki page is such a pain in the tail.
Makes me curious as to why there Is such a difference between in-game and the wiki... Likely to distract myself from the headache of actually doing the math. X1
Thank you in any case. You and the others helping us poor peeps out are such lovely people. <3

~p.s. sba 25 is the mausoleum, yes?~

@Kstorm the reason for the difference in the numbers on the Wiki and in game is that some of the early SBAs were released after later ones and the devs didn't want to disrupt the numbering. The wiki page for SBAs has each entry numbered island by island but then does also specify which number in the in-game numbering system the SBA actually is.

I just double checked in game and the Mausoleum is indeed SBA #25.
