it's just a sliding puzzle

 

The bit that does make it a tad evil is that the empty space is in the middle which does rather break the standard solve method for sliding puzzles that relies on empty space being bottom right.

 

I solved it like it was a sliding puzzle and it didn't work. 

 

 

I'm guessing you just got all the right shapes in all the right places - you need to pay attention to the colours as well. The 4 colours each move through 1 pipe to the middle square, so although several pipes are identical shapes they are unique pieces.

 

The pipes have to be the right shape AND the colours flow through them logically without jumping around.

 

Plus that last little factor of empty space being in middle makes last few tiles a pita to get right.

I figured as much, but I just cant seem to get it right with the colours as well. To be honest, to save myself the stress I decided to leave it. I don't really need the extra stuff it'll give me anyway.

I finished the holiday event a little bit ago, was pretty good. Nice puzzles, if rather simple. I don't like the grindy holiday events and refuse to do them as a result (e.g., Halloween).

The post-quest sliding puzzle a nice spin, too. I rather liked it, honestly.
 

 

Would you please make a Guide for the Event? I don't like Sliding Puzzles either (that's why I don't do any Clues!)

You solve the puzzle like any other sliding puzzle. Keep in mind certain pieces will change to a certain color for a couple seconds. Since the open spot is in the middle, I simply solved the first two rows like a traditional sliding puzzle, then the left side, then the bottom right, then the middle-right

The general method to solve these puzzles is a simple algorithm. They're trivial, so I don't know how much more I can help.

Someone explained to me that each piece has a place to go even if a bunch of them look the same and they need to be organized so the colors go in a line to the middle without jumping everywhere. After they explained it, I was able to finish it. Otherwise, I would have given up and ragequit.

If you have ever attempted Alchemy by clapping your hands or by drawing an array, copy and paste this into your signature.
