You’ll now need to solve several riddles which were in the letter in order to acquire the keys for the locked box. To begin you’ll need to head on over to (X 7.9, Y 13.8) to find a Sleepy Student that you’ll need to perform /doze at them to wake them up to complete the first riddle.

(1 of 3) Head to (X 7.9, Y 13.8) and perform /doze in front of the Sleepy Student
