enter image description here

In this picture, there is one missing picture (the question mark) that represents a word/phrase. What is that word/phrase?

HINT 1: Each picture represents a word, which is part of a "list" that the question mark list completes. (Note each picture may have completely different context to each other.)

EDIT: It has been pointed out to me that I have made a mistake in making the puzzle, please see the accepted answer for more detail.

  • $\begingroup$ Just a quick question, apologies if this is the wrong place to put this, but what are the guidelines for further hints? $\endgroup$ Jan 10, 2022 at 13:28

    $\begingroup$ There is no regulation around hints, you're free to release them when you please. It is common practice, however, to spoiler them using ">!" in front of the hint. Some people release theirs after certain amounts of time or after the post passes a threshold of total views. Also, welcome to PSE! $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ We usually wait for 24 hours before (and between) hints, that way people in all the different time zones get a chance to see the question. $\endgroup$

I think this is something to do with:

the online multiplayer first-person shooter, Destiny 2 - specifically, we are looking for something that represents one of the 'Raids' known as Eater of Worlds and Spire of Stars.

The three images depicted here represent the words:

Top-centre: Scourge (this is the crest of The Scourge faction in World of Warcraft);
Bottom-centre: Crown (this is the Royal Crown from Runescape);
Right: Leviathan (from the Elder Scrolls).

The use of the word 'sunset' in the title suggests:

a connection to 'sunsetting', i.e. the process of retiring or discontinuing a service.

Putting all of this together...

In November 2020, when the Destiny 2: Beyond Light expansion was released, they retired (i.e. 'sunset') several of the Raids that could be played in the game. This list included the Raids known as Leviathan, Scourge of the Past and Crown of Sorrow - each represented in the puzzle image.

To complete the image we are looking for a fourth Raid that was discontinued at the same time - however, as far as I can tell (not being a Destiny player myself), there were two further Raid Lairs connected to the main Leviathan Raid that were also retired at this point: Eater of Worlds and Spire of Stars, so I would propose that the missing image represents one of these (though I cannot be 100% sure which would have been intended by the OP).

Tell you what, let's go safe and add an image which represents both World and Stars to cover all bases!

  • $\begingroup$ Really good job, I thought this question might be here for a while, but someone answered it. As to your final box, that is my fault, as I never ran Eater of Worlds and forgot it existed, but brilliant answer! $\endgroup$ Jan 12, 2022 at 13:00

    $\begingroup$ @Capercailie Aha, that makes sense - thanks for clarifying. I'd suspected I was in the right ballpark but wasn't 100% sure :) $\endgroup$
