Treasure chests are valuable items that can be found by following maps and fighting the Army of the Damned that guard them.
Finding treasure[edit | edit source]
Hovering over a treasure map in your inventory will display the gold it is worth, and the region to find the treasure in. Simply go to that region, match up the map location to the matching location in that region, and dig with a Shovel after killing the Army of the Damned who are guarding the treasure. Roughly 20 will spawn at varying levels, depending on the level of the map. Archers, soldiers, and warriors are the types that will spawn. Archers should be taken out first if possible, then soldiers should be ganged up on because they are shielded an often you will just glance off their shield instead of hitting them. Beware of warriors, they hit hard and can hit you as the player on your mount. It is HIGHLY recommended you bring mounts (lions work the best, elephants are good for pushing them back however.)
Note: There is a timer for killing the army, which doesnt visually appear but it seems to be about 5 minutes in length.
Note: Army of the damned will go underground to regain 100% health if you dont kill them quick enough.
Types of treasure[edit | edit source]
- Armor Blueprints
- Tool Blueprints
- Weapon Blueprints
- Saddle Blueprints
Item Rarity varies based on the rarity of the treasure map.
Treasure Maps[edit | edit source]
Treasure Maps are obtained from treasure bottles and can be a variety of different rarities, and can be located across the game world.
Bottles are being generated as island items and have nothing to do with any player stats contrary to the popular belief that Intellect increases the map quality upon picking. The quality increment of the map compared to the bottle quality is 22.4%. The only exception of the 22.4% increment are the Boosted maps.
Bottles[edit | edit source]
Bottles containing treasure maps can be found along the shore .
Additional notes[edit | edit source]
Once you are close to the location on the map a beacon will appear on the ground representing where to dig. Once you approach the location, Soldiers of the Damned will rise out of the ground and attack you. Killing the Soldiers of the Damned will allow you to then continue digging for the treasure. The difficulty and number of the Soldiers is based on map rarity (gray, green, blue, pink).
Ranged weapons are to kill the Guardian, while avoiding its melee stun mechanic. Aim for the face to bypass breaking the armor. Stay somewhat close, getting too far out of its range while using a ranged weapon will cause it to sink back into the ground and reset.
Riding tamed animals can also help defeat the enemy with the help of the healing or damage feats from beast mastery tree.
If the carrier of the map dies, the map will be bugged and even if you kill all Soldiers of the Damned you won´t be able to dig for the treasure. However, wait for awhile and kill another round of Soldiers of the Damned, then you are able to dig for it.
There seem to be two theories behind bottles not yielding a map when picked up: 1) Empty bottle is a result of a hidden spoil timer on the bottle and it has not been looted within a given time from when it spawned or; 2) You have too many quality maps in your inventory or in nearby inventories. Move all maps a decent distance away from the bottle before looting, this includes mounts and ship inventories carrying them.
Further testing needs to be done as results aren't extensive enough to be definitive.
