I don't even know you but I have to share my thoughts in my darkest hour. I've been bitten by one of the monsters and I can feel myself turning. As I fight the urge to eat my own family I feel the need to do one last good deed. Follow this map to one of my many personal stashes. May it keep you alive.
Finding The Chest
Once the quest is accepted, an icon is available in the map menu and once the character is close enough to the chest, an icon of a treasure chest will appear in the compass, as in the screenshot below.
Once the character is within the "hot-spot" of the treasure chest (determined by the character's Treasure Hunter (Skill) level, the white treasure chest icon in the compass turns red.
Once inside the "hot-spot" of the chest, indicated by a red treasure chest icon in the compass (see picture), start finding the edges of the hot-spot where the icon just turns red and use wooden frames to map the edges of the hot-spot. Once the hot-spot radius is mapped with wooden frames, locate the center and begin digging 3-blocks deep in the center, then one block out from the center, in concentric circles until the chest is located.
The hot-spot area is reduced based on the characters Treasure Hunter (Skill) level
Level 1 Treasure Hunter = Within 9 block radius
Level 2 Treasure Hunter = Within 7 block radius
Level 3 Treasure Hunter = Within 5 block radius
These settings can be found (and changed) in progression.xml.
- The treasure "hot-spot" isn't a true square. The corners are angled, making it diamond-shaped.
- The box may not be located in the center of the "hot spot"
- The box could be 3 blocks deep or more.
- The box can only be opened once, after-which it self-destructs along with everything left inside. Take everything you need the first time!
