  1. I'm at 99.6, and the GGS has stopped working on World Maps.

    So, do I have to decode to get my final .4?

    And then! BOOYA!! I CAN DO INGENIOUS TREASURE HUNTS SOLO!
    Wooohoo!


    ..erm...
    well...

    I mean I can dig up a treasure map and get a chest full of craptacular loot and a backpack containing a useless arty that everyone has 1000 of.

    ...all in the time it would take to get 3x the gold if I was one-hitting efreets.

    WHY did I work so hard on this again...?

    yeah you have to decode maps to get the final .4

    edit: and btw since they made ancient wyrms much harder... a t-hunter mage is no longer enough.
     
  3. Because you're clearly insane.
     
  4. Congrats on getting 99.6. If you do not have any level 4 maps laying around let me know, I can give you enough to do your GGS over the next four days.

    Question what you Lock picking at?

    Tattered Ingenious Maps - 1000 points toward Spring Cleaning
    Completed Ingenious Maps - 1000 points toward Spring Cleaning
    Chest Artifact - 500 points toward Spring Cleaning

    It is worth getting the artifact from the chest.

    I believe I have a few devious maps piled up in my Sonoma house, PC. Haven't turned them or anything else in yet on Sonoma because it's not going to amount to much. Let me know if you want the maps.
     
  8. Some are also worth keeping, I do better selling the good ones then turning them in for 500 points.

    Hey PC what the template of your t hunter, and is it [him/her] guilded yet? If you like to join the THB on Sonoma let me know.

    My treasure hunter was designed to be completely unable to handle higher level chests by herself. I have remove trap for example (so I could do town chests back in the day without reagents). I look forward to refilling my map chests after Spring Cleaning is over.

    Maps won't give you as much as regular hunting, but they can be a lot of fun with a group. The social aspect of t-maps shouldn't be overlooked. Though I find it amusing that an SOS chest seems to have more gems inside (which I keep for tinkered jewelery), but I could be mistaken.

    I would have to disagree with that edit statement. A t-hunter mage is enough - if you have the right equipment/macros.

    In hopes that some day the developers will bother to look at how horrible t-hunting loot is and buff it up.

    Yes from 99.6 on you have to decode maps. It takes about 100 if you don't ggs it and 4 if you ggs it.

    Not really seeing that in the time it takes to do that t-chest you could be doing vanguards (5000 points) solo with the same character type.

    There is a difference between the most efficient way and the way that results in me having the most fun. I've been mixing up my point gathering between SOS bottles, vanguards, ophidians, miasma for ingenious maps, and the actual maps. Barely had time to turn any of it in. I play to have fun, so while there is probably a more efficient way, there is a certain fun running from a balron with my little guttersnipe of a treasure hunter.
