Clue 2 (Analyzing): There's a pile of neatly stacked stones in the field. I wonder what will happen if I take away a piece…

Clue 3 (In Progress): Unluckily, the man in front of you with a painful expression suffers from serious OCD…

The Intelligence hint to unlock The Man's OCD Encounter isn't entirely clear. The issue here is that it involves exploring a realm that we can only activate at character level 64, so this is the real minimum level requirement for the anecdote, not level 50 as the clues may tell you.

To trigger the Encounter at level 64, you must approach Duane near the huts south of Aquilaria Town, he's the one near the glowing rocks disposed in a circle. However, the Analyzing status only appeared for us at level 64, so you may have to level up until then before you can proceed.

Then, approach the rocks and interact with a stone to pick it up, instantly triggering the Encounter start.

Talk to Duane by choosing the option [Encounter] Mental Damage. He is clearly troubled by our messing up his perfect stone circular pattern and starts talking about punishing us. Then we have two options:

  • Take out some gold as compensation
  • I can spend the whole day with you

We chose the second option, and our next task is to find an exact replica of the stone that we just lost. Go into the Realm of Nightmare by clicking on the mission objective from the Others tab. Activate the realm if you haven't done so already – requires level 64 – and enter.

Inside, press the objective to go directly to the stone, but you must do this three times so that uncle Duane may choose the best stone. Exit the realm manually when you have the mission objective updated to [Encounter] Return to the uncle and give the selected rocks to him.

Talk to Duane and The Man's OCD Encounter will end, rewarding you with 60 diamonds.

Completed: There are no two identical stones in the world. Just as you cannot satisfy an obsessive person.

Chest Clue (require Lv. 2 and above lightsaber): On the peak of the Fortress gate.

Analysis: Destroy a neatly stacked stone pile.
