Well, I don't think I would have gotten the clue without the title... here goes:

So I saw the title and saw the Greek letters.  So I thought it might have something to do with them.  Since I don't know all the greek letters, or what order they are in, I looked them up on the internet.  I looked for Omikron and saw that the greek letters around there were Omikron, Pi, Rho, and Sigma.  I thought it was too much of a coincidence that Juggler listed some in order, but left out Pi.

The only digits of Pi I know off the top of my head are 3.14159.  I saw that this could fit into the sequence, as Q is used both times where the 1 is, and the other letters don't repeat just like the numbers don't repeat in this short part of the squence I know.

Long story short...

Pi is
3.14159265358979323     84626

So the next 5 letters are for 84626, which are I R Y W Y
