    Hi all,

    For digup a treasure. I need Cartography on that char? Or I can have on another char to decode the map and then use another for dig up the treasure?

    I have my merchant crafter which has 100 skill points unused and I was thinking use for Cartography and save the map decoded.

    But then,

    what I need to be able to dig up the treasure and open it?

    Thanks!

    Yes, the character that decoded the map needs to be the one that digs up the map. After a map has been decoded, no one but the original cartographer is able to use it.

    In order to loot the treasure you will need the following:
    • A cartographer with the appropriate skill level to decode the map
    • A shovel on your cartographer and the location of the chest. If your mining is 0 you will need to get within 1 tile of the treasure chest, if your mining is at 100 you can be within 10 tiles of the chest to dig it up.
    • A lockpicker to unlock the treasure chest (Level 1/2 can be unlocked with the "Magic Unlock" spell, anything else requires someone with the Lockpicking skill)
    • A way to remove the trap (Unless you feel like dying!), the simplest way is to get 5-6 tiles away and use the "Telekinesis" spell on the chest to pop the trap without taking damage.
    • A way to clear the monsters or to distract them while you loot the chest. You'll get between 4-6 monsters spawning instantly when you dig up the chest, depending on the treasuremap level these monsters can kill your character very quickly.
    • A way to clear monsters or distract them while you loot the chest. Every time you loot an item from the treasure chest there's a chance for a monster to spawn, so unless you take care of the additional spawns they will overwhelm and kill you.
    Overall, treasure maps are a great way to make money with relatively minimal risk. A little bit of practice and determination and you'll be able to handle level 5/6 chests by yourself, but in the meantime the level 3/4 chests still provide good loot with a chance of level 7 maps!
