    Can I ask you to help me document the new details to treasure hunting?

    The kind of things I'm looking for:

    What are the new guardians? are they by facet? and are they only different at level 6?
    How many guardians, by level? I'm getting the impression level 6 spawn a variable number possibly between 4 and 7?
    Are people recording the co-ordinates at which they find the new maps?

    Just did 3 maps on test, details as follows.

    Level 6 - Malas, 63.54N 28.32W
    Guardians - Devourer of Souls x3, Rotting Corpse x1 (one of which dropped what appears to be a deco item "Playing Cards")
    6 LP fails, message of "Gas escaping from chest" - reulted in 0 gold being in chest. Also a message of a "Grubber" spawning and stealing an item. Grubber runs off, almost like a vorpal bunny. You can kill said grubber to reclaim the stolen item (150-200 HP).

    New loot:
    1x Skeleton Key (10 charges)
    1x Tasty Treat
    1x Recipe (Rune Carving Knife)
    1x Pardon (gold scroll, reduces murdercount by 1)

    Artifcact bag containted alchemists bauble.

    Spawns while looting the chest = Wanderer of the Void x4 (no loot?).

    Actual loot items within in chest, nothin special.




    Level 6 Ilsh, 52.23N 17.9W
    Guardians - Exodus Minion x3, Gargoyle Destroyer x4, Titan x1 <- one of which dropped "Playing Cards"
    3 LP fails, resulting in a "Grubber"
    New Loot: Runed Sash of Warding (Sash with properties Spell damage ward / Brittle / 50 Charges)
    1x Tasty Treat
    1x Creeping Vine (deco?)
    1x Lvl 6 map (Ilsh)

    Artifact bag : Blazing Death
    Spawns while looting chest : 1x Gargoyle Destroyer

    Actual loot items within in chest, nothin special.



    Lvl 6 Ilsh, 119.38N 65.36W (Really close to valor champ spawn)
    Guardians : 3 Titans, 1 Gargoyle Destroyer, 2 Exodus Minions
    1 LP fail, no special messages

    1x Skeleton Key (10 charges)
    1x Scroll of Alacrity (detect hidden)
    Artifact bag : Alchemists Bauble

    Spawns while looting : 1x Exodus Minion, 1x Titan
    Actual loot items within in chest, nothin special




    As a side note, all 3 chests spawned with exactly 19 of a random gem (ruby, tourmaline, etc) and 6 SA essences (again seemingly random). Maps 2&3 contained 30k gold, while map 1 was empty (i believe from the gas escaping message).

    I did all 3 maps with a template of

    110 Myst
    110 Focus
    90 Mage
    90 Med
    100 Cart
    100 Mining
    100 Lockpicking

    and found them very straight forward. Actually having to deduce where the chest was, rather than just visiting a rune librabry wasnt a problem, and in all honesty took no longer than having to tab out etc.

    So far, I am enjoying the changes :D

    Thank you, that's exactly what I was looking for. I've not seen the playing cards mentioned before. I suspect others haven't looted the guardians.

    As for finding it. the n/s orientation difference between the radar and the map confuses the hell out of me. I'll maybe use the zoomable maps on Stratics to help me.

    Just decoded a lvl 6 trammel map... its in the middle of the ocean.. Simpley a red pin in a blue map :p

    Edit : Just decoded my other trammel maps on test.. only 6 but ALL are showing as a red pin in a blue map,i.e. middle of water.

    Level 1 maps done for each facet. So far only ter mur had anything unusual in the guardians, clockwork scorpions.
    consistent loot: 5k gold, 4 of the jeweler type gems, single stack. ie 4 amethysts or 4 diamonds etc. No special loot on guardians, alacrity scrolls, recipes and skeleton key obtained, so level 1s are worth doing.
    started level 2s. consistent loot: 10k gold, 7 gems. 2 essence of (virtue)
     
  7. Ben Sherman

    Ben Sherman Guest

    Lvl 1 Ter Mur maps : Corrosive Slimes also spawn as guardians, otherwise all i've seen tallys with whats already on the page.

    Lvl 5 Ter Mur : Lava Elementals, Fire Ants, Maddening Horrors. One guardian dropped "Vile Tentacles" never seen them before, possibley deco item.

    Lvl 6 Tok : In addition to those you have listed already. Yomotsu Warriors and Yomotsu Priests.


    Some of the locations could prove to be tricky for the weaker hunters, i.e. those most likely to do the level 1 and 2 maps. Had them right by rune beetle spawns, in the bake kitsunes woods, right by the big 3rd evolution demon things in ter mur etc.
     
  8. Ben Sherman

    Ben Sherman Guest

    Lvl 2 Tokuno : Gargoyles, orc Mages, Hell Hounds

    Lvl 3 Tokuno : Fire Ele, Lich, Ogre Lord, Air Ele

    Lvl 3 Ter Mur : Leather Wolf, Stone Slith, Toxic Slith

    Lvl 3 Ilsh : Lich, Ogre Lord, Fire Ele, Air Ele

    Lvl 4 Malas : Lich Lord, Elder Gazer, Dreadspider

    Note: First time I've found a chest with none of the spcial loot. Lvl 4 had the gems/essences but nothing else of note aside from gold and the usual magic items (I.E. no treats/keys/scrolls etc.

    I received a message in a bottle in a level 2 chest. I fished it up but the prechest loot and the chest loot is the same as it always has been.

    Thank you, and welcome to Stratics.
    One question. Are you sure the Dark Guardian was on the Ilshenar map, not the Malas one?

    Level 5 Malas - lich lord, wander of the void (2), ravager (2)

    Level 6 Tokuno - yomatsu warrior, yomatsu priest (2), oni (2), hiryu (2), rune beetle

    I just added the number of items and reagent stacks for each chest on uoguide:

    The number of magic items on a Level 1 chest is 32. For each additional level, the number of items increases by 8. So for a Level 3 chest its 48 and for a Level 6 chest its 72.

    Level 1 maps give 3 stacks of reagents and the number of stacks increases by 1 for each additonal level. So for Level 6 maps, there are 8 stacks of reagents.

    I opened all chests in Trammel, so these might change on other facets.


    I also noticed two things:

    The locations of Level 1 maps on Trammel seems to be not randomized. They are the exact same locations that can be found on rune libraries.

    The location to dig can be found using an program as basic as Paint Brush. The exact location to dig is not under the red pin or the needle's end; its 4 pixels under the red pin's center and one pixel to the right and this always holds. Since these maps are 50% zoomed out, this pixel represents a 2x2 tile. But even without any mining skill, you can dig the chest from one tile away, so this is not a problem.

    Thank you for that, I'll integrate it into the page

    This information I found particularly interesting. I'll check it out so that I can include an image for better clarification.

    Very interesting - and a very good map for demonstrating it, with the distinctive features.

    Would you mind if I copied it to use on the page? Properly credited of course.
    In my own attempt to get an image I managed to get a picture and lore info for Hunter's guide on the grubber http://uo.stratics.com/database/view.php?db_content=hunters&id=3198

    Not at all. I couldnt take a screenshot of the Grubber, seeing the most comedic creature I've ever seen in uo I forgot what I was doing there. I wonder where it is running. Is it disappear after a while or just hide on a remote location?

    Has anyone gotten any imbuing resource other than the various essences or abyssal cloth?

    Can anyone confirm that the Guardians are actually dropping special items? We did about 10-15 maps last night and got zero special loot from guardians.

    As for the imbuing ingredients, we only received essences and abyssal cloth.

    I've gotten several maps from chests that were the same level as the chest dug up. Kind of interesting and didn't know that was the case!

    I havent seen any playing card on the corpses after the second update of Publish 67. I was getting them frequently in TC1 before that final update so I guess they either removed it from the loot for the rare collectors who previously collected such an item or they reduced the drop rate (close to zero if I might add).

    I also got a Level 6 map from a Level 5, then got a Level 5 map from the very Level 6 map I previously got. So it is possible to get a map one level lower from the chests.

    I got two 0.5 Sots from the Level 5 and 6 maps in Felucca out of three maps and I think its not a very bad ratio.

    Finally, I still continue to dig chests with 0 mining skill and I havent got any diffculty finding the locations yet.

    I'm still tweaking the page ( Treasure Map Quests ) as more information becomes available. I have some questions, do you have any answers for me?


    What's the lowest level you had a mib from?
    What's the lowest level you had a vine from?
    what's the lowest level you had a forged pardon from?
    What's the lowest level you had a sash/shield/orb from?

    I got mibs and vines from lvl 1's. (But I am not shure about the mibs. I got a feeling that those might only appear on trammel/fel maps. Other have reported getting maps out of chests so often, that i would guess that mibs are taking up the same reward slot in chests as maps. Out of my around 100 lvl 1's I cant remember that i got a map and a mib from a chest.)

    But another question.... :D
    Has anyone done fel maps lately? I would like to know spawn rate, intensity and minimum map level for sots. (I would need to get an additional runebook set for my t-hunter then.)

    I haven't gotten a fel map yet.
