This evening I used one of my treasure hunters that is still very much in training to do a plainly drawn Ter Mur treasure map and then to pick and loot some Vesper bank and some static and spawning dungeon chests. I feel compelled to post the results of both activities, because they seem so out of whack with each other! The treasure hunter I used only has 75.1 cartography and 83.1 lockpicking skill. Her suit has a whopping (j/k) 895 luck on it. She was not under the influence of a luck statue at all this evening. From the level 1 treasure chest in Ter Mur (and maybe from one leather wolf killed before digging up the chest), she retrieved 35 items. Every single item, other than a wand, was a "minor magic" item. Of those 35 items, 27 unravelled into 107 magical residue and 8 unravelled into 12 enchanted essence. Next, without logging out first, my t-hunter opened all the chests on the west side of the Vesper bank and looted them. Then she opened and looted all the chests in the Yew crypts, both sides. Then she opened and looted the 4 or maybe 5 "spawning" chests in Destard and all of the "static" chests against the wall, since those now contain magical items (no gold still). She walked away from that trip with 30 items. There was a variety of greater magic, lesser magic, and minor magic items in her bag, but I forgot to tally them up by category. Of those 30 items, 5 unraveled to 19 magical residue; 22 unraveled to 41 enchanted essence; and 3 unraveled to 5 relic fragments. I will be tracking the results of more maps and dungeon forays with this character. Maybe it was just a fluke to get these drastically different results. But then again, maybe it's deliberate. Obviously, more results are needed, so maybe some additional people interested in this issue can run the same experiment and post what they are finding. Edited above to add that one item in the level 1 Ter Mur map was a spell channeling wand. Edited to add the following: Results of a level 1 Malas map, same character as above and same luck amount on suit: 1 spell channeling wand; 4 lesser magic items; 27 minor magic items (32 items total). Yield: 18 items unraveled to 68 magical residue; 14 items unraveled to 23 enchanted essence. Results of a level 1 Trammel map, same character as above and same luck amount on suit: 0 wands; 1 lesser magic item; 31 minor magic items (32 items total). Yield: 20 items unraveled to 74 magical residue; 12 items unraveled to 17 enchanted essence. Results of a level 2 Malas map, same character as above and same luck amount on suit: 3 wands; 15 lesser magic items; 25 minor magic items (40 items total). Yield: 21 items unraveled to 86 magical residue; 19 items unraveled to 27 enchanted essence. Results of another run through (Tuesday a.m., same character, same luck) of Vesper bank, Yew crypts, Destard chests until 40 items were collected (same # of items as a level 2 t-map) and lockpicking is now at 83.6: 7 wands; 2 greater magic items; 20 lesser magic items; 11 minor magic items (40 items total). Yield: 13 items unraveled to 42 magical residue; 26 items unraveled to 47 enchanted essence; 1 item unraveled to 1 relic fragment. Another level 2 Malas map (Tuesday a.m., same character, same luck): 4 wands, 8 lesser magic items, 28 minor magic items (40 items total). Yield: 23 items unraveled to 83 magical residue; 17 items unraveled to 25 enchanted essence.
