Introduction

Finding Maps
Uncovering Treasures

Treasure Hunt is an activity released in patch 2.1. While gathering resources as Miner, Fisher or Botanist at gathering points that are of level 40 or above, players have a chance of receiving Timeworn Maps. Players can decipher these maps to receive a location where treasure can be found. After arriving at the correct location, players will have to defeat one or several monsters guarding the treasure before it can be opened. The maps come in 8 grades, grade 8 being the hardest and giving the greatest rewards.

  • Players can only receive one map through gathering every 18 hours Earth time. They can decipher as many maps as they like, however.
  • Fisher must have the Snagging action active to find maps.
  • While players can sell the Timeworn Maps, they cannot be sold after they are deciphered.
  • Rewards listed below are possible outcomes of what might be in the treasure. It's possible for some of the rewards to be HQ. You will get many chests that do not contain these rare items. It's possible to find another treasure map.

To unlock Treasure Hunt, players need to complete the level 36 quest: Treasures and Tribulations. Players can start the quest by talking to H'loonh in Eastern La Noscea (x21,y21).

Tutorial

Finding the Maps

In the course of gathering, Disciples of the Land will now be able to obtain items known as timeworn maps. These maps can be used to reveal the location of hidden treasures. Maps are found in level 40 or above gathering nodes throughout Eorzea. Higher level nodes will offer more difficult maps with better rewards. Players cannot find maps at unspoiled gathering points or guildleve gathering points.

  • Timeworn map locations are not recorded in gathering and fishing logs.

Examining a Timeworn Map

Players can examine a timeworn map by using the action Decipher. Doing so will change the timeworn map into a treasure map key item. Only one treasure map can be in your possession at any given time.

Discovering Treasure

Using a treasure map will bring up a window indicating the general area of the treasure. Players must cross-reference the area map to discover its precise location. Using the action Dig in the approximate location will cause a treasure chest to spawn.

Examining Treasure Chests

Treasure chests are armed with a trap which, when triggered, will lure an enemy (or several) to your location. If the enemy cannot be defeated within the allotted time, or you and your party leave the area, the treasure chest will disappear and the hunt will end.

  • The treasure map will be lost upon triggering the trap.

Obtaining Treasure

Players will be free to examine the treasure chest after defeating the abovementioned enemy. All party members will receive rewards such as EXP, gil, Allagan tomestones of philosophy and mythology, minions, aetherial gear, crafting ingredients (including HQ), housing materials, medicine, and elemental shards. The contents of the treasure chest will vary depending on the type of treasure map.

  • Gil and Allagan tomestones will be distributed evenly between party members.

Unhidden Maps

Occasionally players will find Unhidden Leather Maps in the Treasure Chests. Unhidden Maps lead players to even rarer treasures.

  • Unhidden Maps were introduced in patch 2.3.
