My first treasure map

    Well i have been hunting with my tamer for years now and decided to convert him to a tamer/t-hunter after collecting about 40 miasma boxes and not being able to open them :cursing:

    So I dilligently train my carto and lockpicking to become a gm in both, decode my maps and go a treking! My first map is on fire isle which wasn't too bad as far as spawn and room goes. My first spawn 2 daemons a titan and a poison ele. Fortunatly, thanks to all the tips here I was able to stage my Greater Dragon a few screens away and immediatly invis when the box came up fully. My dragon didn't have much problems with that spawn. Now my first comment is this... I was wearing a 1656 luck suit and the spawn dropped nothing useful... now I hunt balrons regulary and this loot seemed inferior to what I usually get off them. I figured maybe it was just RW bad luck. Next thing to spawn was an AW, which my GD dutifully munched on... again inferior loot compared to the ones I usually hunt in illsh. (Not much more inferior since they seemingly tweeked the loot from them anyway) and so it went for about 30 minutes were i spawned another 2 AW, a balron, blood ele, poion ele. Loot was slim pickings in the box itself (maybe 4-5 pieces i kept) and plenty of regs, but overall I had a blast doing it! I believe i am hooked :heart: Now here is hoping they upgrade the loot in the boxes!! :pint:

    Congrats! I remember when Vanquishing Weapons were the prize. Now it's all about item base. I've come across a couple of items worth millions. All the rest I recycle, recycle, and recycle.:pint:

    Treasure map loot needs some love, but we've only been complaining for 4-5 years. Some day sombody might listen.

    glad to hear we have another T-hunter among us!
    As for the Loot - well that might be as soon as tommorrow or as late as never. We can just hope for the sooner.
    Good luck and hope you continue to enjoy T-hunting!
