    The 1 step over does not work for the actual treasure maps like it does with dungeon chests.

    Looting chests reveals you.

    If you have hiding on your cartographer you can hide as the monsters spawn if you time it just right (it is not difficult to time).

    Thanks for the answers! And you can't just grab the whole chest right? It's "locked" in position?

    Yes, they are locked in place. Bring an axe or hatchet to destroy the chest when you are done looting because the chest will not despawn for awhile and block other would be treasure seekers from digging up their chests. Plus, you get an achievement.

    Sure

    No, looting reveals

    I have Hiding on my Carto. I dig, then hide as soon as the mobs pop. I use another character or two to kill the initial spawn, then loot and kill as I go

    If you are around tomorrow hit me up on IRC and I will take you on a treasure hunt. It may only cost you your head, but at least you can get a bit of experience under your belt!

    I realize its an old guide and such, but in building up my T-hunter (current date April 2018) I found that the skill for decoding Lvl 5 (deviously drawn) maps is 90 shown skill (I had 89.1 real skill).

    It took a number of attempts, and I got .4 skill ups in the process, but I was able to decode a lvl 5 map.

    Lvl 4 maps were less than 85 show skill. I hadn't tested them prior to reaching that skill level however so I don't know the exact minimum.

    When/If I ever get a lvl 6 I'll try to find its minimum as well.

    The skill requirements were fixed in a recent patch. You should find them in the patch notes


    Edit:
    http://uorforum.com/threads/patch-7...een-updated-minor-bugfixes.27649/#post-270604

    Level 5 maps will require 90 cartography to attempt to decode the map with a roughly 50% chance for success at 100 skill.
    Level 6 maps will require 95 cartography to attempt to decode the map with a roughly 25% chance for success at 100 skill.
    Level 7 maps will require 98 cartography to attempt to decode the map with a roughly 10% chance for success at 100 skill.

    what would be your recommendation for a skill besides lockpick. I would thing using unlock and telekinesis works just as well and frees up a skill. Am I missing something else regarding lockpick?

    Magic unlock only works so far. I don’t think you can unlock anything over a lvl 2.

    Free bump for this amazing guide, I used alot of the info from the main page for my video guide. More great info about the addition of lvl7 Tmaps back in 2015 at Patch 64 - Treasure Hunting Update.
