Anyone experienced this with new tmap?

    After the new tmap changes,
    I have done 7 level-4 TMAP and i have gotten 3 creeping vines, 2 skeleton keys, 3 blue scrolls + imbuing ingred
    I have done 4 level-5 TMAP and i have gotten 0 creeping vines, 0 skeleton keys, 1 blue scroll + imbuing ingreds.

    maybe it's just me, but L5 TMAP seems to yield worse compare to L4 TMAP in turns of the new items.

    Bug or just my luck.

    I'd say that's just luck. Four maps isn't much, I'm sure after you've done a lot more you will see that is all comes out as it should.

    I did 5 pre patch lvl 1 maps and got 2 skeleton keys, in those 5 I got 2 new lvl 1 maps and doing them I got another skeleton key and an imbuing blue scroll.

    I think its just random luck.

    Note about the new map system. I did a low lvl 3 map in tram. An old one I had in my pack for a while. I dug it up, ok and killed the guardians. That too was ok.. but when I used my picks .......... I failed 3 times. So when i did open it i was very surprised. The gold and 2 other items were dust. NO gold what so ever unless you counted the gold from the guardians for a total of 2 k. My t hunter is a gm lock pick, and a lvl 3 map chest is same as a reg lvl 3 chest. I'm sorry in my opinion the change to lock picking is very bad.

    I still have to test more maps, but I think the scrolls of alacrity / skeleton key / tasty treat drop *may* be too high in low level chests...

    You spend way more time on level 4, 5 or 6 maps due to the power of the guardians, while I could walk away with a scroll, a skeleton key, extra t-maps and more just spending time doing level 1's, 2's or even 3's, which are way easier to do...

    I've done about 70 low level maps now and the scroll of alacrity ratio is close to 1 in 3. This is fun stuff, but in the long run might mean nothing inside those chests will attain any value due to the easy way they're aquired...

    I'll keep on testing though, who knows ;)

    Had a Level 6 last night in Vesper Graveyard lol. 5 Ancient Wyrms as Guardians. Took me ages solo with Myst.

    Kind of find it hard to get the energy to do Level 6. Sure, they're meant to be done in groups not solo, but I'm still finding the loot for them a bit lacking. Nothing really sets them apart from Level 5 which are simple to solo with my Mystic. Not saying I want them to easier, just want the loot in Level 6s to be more inspiring and unique.

    Sure, the artie is alright but no one really uses them lol.

    I have done now around 50 lvl 1's. (Still have 70 left ... the curse of an active fisherman. :D ) Soa's, keys and treats might appear to often but I wonder, why ppl from luna trying to sell them for high amounts of gold. I would like to see new players beeing able to afford those items for around 15k gp. I know, how powerfull the 'rightfull' use of an soa can be but I would say, that those items are meant for new chars/players.
    Besides that all of them are consumables. Ppl try to sell and treat them like rares, what they are definately not. Not to mention that many ppl now hunting for treasures and there are too many of them available.
    Same with those crafting recipes. It wasnt much fun to gather them directly from Heartwood quests. One half of me wants them treated as super-rares. The other half relaxes and hopes to see sooner or later more crafters around beeing able and available to craft them.
    Additional notes on low-level-chests:
    - I was very suprized when i got my first creeping vine from a lvl 1 (got 2 this far)
    - I did a lvl 2 and got imbuing reags (essences) from it. I suppose those are not available from lvl 1's.
    - Lvl 1' and 2's are worth doable. But others stated that already before the patch. The ratio of time needed/items for unravelling received simply was/is fine.

    Unfortunately I donated all of my low level maps and only kept the level 6 maps because I ran out of storage space. I notice that I rarely get scrolls of alacrity in the level 6 chests. Over the last month or so, I saved about 10 level 4 maps and received an alacrity scroll in almost each of them. I wish I had more low level maps!

    Seems like the greatest benefit of higher level map is more essence/and maybe cloth. And of course higher number of items to loot, and gold. Most of the drops appear on LVL 1-6, despite what seemed to be wording that suggested the good stuff didn't appear until LVL 2.

    Level 6 maps need something to set them more apart from the lower level maps. I wouldn`t like the solution to be nerfing of the maps from 1-5, but rather an increase in the level 6 maps.

    The chance of the alacrity in lvl 1-3 chests is the only reason to do them at the moment. Why take that away? Leave the alacrity scroll in the other chests as is, but let the creeping vine perhaps be a lvl 6 only drop. The artifact from a lvl 6 isn`t really worthwhile - I wonder why they didn`t add the ML marties in the mix.
