Discovering a Treasure Chest

  • When a player has successfully dug up a Treasure Chest, a wave of monsters will appear which must be cleared before the Treasure Chest can be accessed
  • Additional waves of monsters will generate after a time, based on the Treasure Map difficulty, until the Chest has been "Demolished" by the person who dug the Chest up, or after it decays
  • Any player not in the Party of the person who dug up the Treasure Chest will perform a criminal act (and turn gray) if they open the chest or take any items
  • Treasure Map Chests have a single wave of spawn, and this spawn occurs 3-5 seconds after digging up the Chest
  • Players are unable to Lockpick, Snoop, or Demolish a Treasure Map Chest until all creature spawns are killed
  • Players are unable to Demolish a Treasure Map Chest until it has been unlocked

Unlocking and Untrapping a Treasure Chest

  • Players can double-click a Treasure Map Chest to open a special window to see their progress and choose their actions
    • Players can also elect to simply double-click Lockpicks or Trap Tool and target the chest
    • Single-clicking on a Treasure Chest will display the chest's Lockpicking/Remove Trap progress (if any has been made)
    • Players cannot open a chest until the Lockpicking Progress on the chest reaches 100%
  • Treasure Map Chests have a Lock and Trap Difficulty from level 1-8
    • Traps increase in power and effect based on the Trap Difficulty level of the chest
  • Players can make Lockpicking attempts on the chest using Lockpicks, with successes increasing the Lockpicking Progress on the chest (with more difficult chests requiring more successes to reach 100%)


Triggering a Trap

  • A player who triggers a Trap is not able to use the Hiding skill or be hidden with the Invisibility spell for the next 5 seconds
  • Players have a chance to trigger a trap when making Lockpicking attempts, which will cancel their Lockpicking attempt, and instead deal one of 15 different harmful effects to the player
  • A player triggering a trap on a Dungeon or Treasure Map chest does not remove any traps from the chest (players may continue to trigger traps on it)
