Treasure Hunting Mod Information
The Treasure Hunting System is a custom mod unique to this server at this time.  It may be released for general use by other servers.

The Treasure Hunting System functions in the background.  Simply performing common daily tasks in Wurm can allow you to find a mysterious treasure map.

Treasure maps may be found by Hunting, Fishing, Digging and Mining.

Discovery of a treasure map will be accompanied by a distinct noise and the swirling rare item visual effect.

Treasure maps discovered by hunting will appear in the corpse of the slain creature.  Treasure maps discovered by Fishing, Digging and Mining will appear in your inventory.  

Treasure maps vary by quality.  The quality of the map affects the quality and quantity of the treasure inside the chest as well as the guardian creatures protecting the treasure.

A low ql map (10) may be guarded by rats and wildcats, whereas a 70QL map may be guarded by no-gumps and rift creatures.

A Treasure Map can be damaged in a forge to reduce it's effective quality.  This will allow lower fight skill players to be able to use their higher QL maps.  The loot contents of the chest and the mobs guarding it will appear at the effective level of the map.

Effective quality level can be calculated as: 
  • effective quality = quality * (100 - damage) / 100

Locating the map
To locate the treasure, activate your compass and right click the map, choose read map.  This system uses the Locate Soul mechanism for reflecting distances.  You may read the map while mounted on horse or cart.  Smart use of village portals in conjunction with map readings can greatly reduce the amount of time and travel necessary to locate the treasure chest.

Eventually you will work yourself closer to the treasure chest until you are "Practically standing on the spot".  Once this happens, it is recommended that you dismount and lead your horse or be prepared to mount your cart quickly when the chest guardians appear.

To dig the treasure, activate your shovel while standing on the spot and right click the map, choose "Dig Treasure".

When you have finished digging, the guardians will likely show up and you may have to fight them to be able to open the treasure chest.

If you are attempting a higher QL map, consider marking a rune prior to digging up the treasure.  This will allow you to return to a populated location, solicit assistance and return to the treasure location using your marked rune (share the rune by dropping it to the ground so that your fellow warriors may port there)

Do not leave guardians alive.  It is considered poor form to hunt down a 80ql treasure map and leave very tough monsters alive that will likely attack some poor unsuspecting nearby settlement.
