Hello Wurmians! It’s been a little bit since we’ve had some news ready to share but with the first part of the Exploration Update coming soon, there are a few sneak peeks I’m able to share with you all!
One of the things I’m looking forward to the most with the Exploration update is the new opportunity for adventures while looking for treasures. While this is a work in progress and treasure maps could look a bit different from this at release, I do have a sneak peek here for your perusal:
For those of you who hadn’t yet seen the Development Update posted by Keenan a few days ago, here’s some more information on the Treasure Hunts!
When getting a rarity roll on actions like mining, fishing, and digging, you will have a chance at uncovering a lost map or clue to lead you to the location of a lost treasure. These clues come in several difficulties and types, each less common and more challenging than the last. The clues will include maps to nearby or farther away locations, hot and cold clues where you are told if you are getting closer or not since your last time checking, challenging clues leading you to a specific task, etc. The map clues are items that will visually lead you to a location and will come in varying quality levels, whereas the more challenging older maps may be missing sections or have been smudged or distorted by the hands of time. More difficult clues can have more than one step and may have creatures guarding the locations ready to pounce on anyone who dares to claim the rewards. Some rewards will be given at the end in a chest of treasure that can contain some new cosmetic items, rare metals like seryll, glimmersteel, or adamantine, and other valuable items.
