I've discovered that mining is needed to find treasure map locations

    After a two year break, and random location maps, I don't know what I'm going to do. My lock pick hand is itching to open up a high level chest to see what changes have been made, but I can't seem to find the location!

    Any help?

    Re: So lost, can't figure out how to find t-map location

    Some people use UO Cartographer or another map program, but I don't. I made a world map of each facet. I look at the world map to see the general area of where I need to be. Then I go to the general spot for the treasure map and make a local map. I have 100 mining so I can dig within 10 tiles of the actual spot. I just keep digging all around where the needle is until I find it. Sometimes I find it right away and sometimes it takes a while. Once I find it and dig it up then I mark a rune to it and lock the completed treasure map and rune down on the floor of my house so if I get that same treasure map again I'll be able to go directly to it. There are treasure map libraries also that you can check out.

    I have no mining, but I guess I can get other members with it to join me. I've been unable to find a library on Lake Austin that has the recent map locations, all of the old ones are in there.

    I do like the idea of marking a rune and placing it on the map after you've completed it, I'll start doing that as I build up my stack.

    Anyone else?

    I thought 100 mining gave you a 5 tile bonus.

    It does. I tried a while without but gave up after a couple maps. The random locations make it too hard without mining.

    even with 100 mining and UOC it takes me 5-15 minutes to find the typical map.

    Currently I use EC. Previously I used CC with screencap method. It typically takes me 1 - 2 minutes to locate the chest using careful study of the terrain. I have 0 mining.

    What can your screencap method and a careful study of the terrain tell you about this map location? ;)
