Treasure chests

Postby Mansfieldml » Mon Nov 16, 2015 5:47 pm

Does anyone know the secret to getting them? Do you have to have so many sells, production or is it based on time? And how often will you see the chest in dead birds fort cave on the island?

Dead birds is one a day. Before the karma thing, I got chests all the time. Now, much less. Maybe one every 2-3 days.

I think you get fewer and fewer treasure chests as you level. I'm ecstatic if I see one a day now, besides the one at Dreadbird's Fort.

I get multiple chests a day, including storage items. If you have seen a slow down, I suggest searching your island very carefully from every angle using zoom. I've found some hidden ones by the hedges near the docks, partially in unopen territories, and behind trees and mills.

I am now back to getting two or three per day, often when I open the
game in the morning.

TIP: Search your island very CAREFULLY. Zoom in and keep your eyes
glued. Some chests are hidden until you scroll the screen to the far
right/left/top/bottom when viewing. Found one 75% hidden behind the
docks walkway that did not show in regular view. If there is a hidden
chest, it may prevent renewal of others.

They also like to hide them very close to the moles when placed by one. Like literally inside the little box they have. But yes search your island very slowly and zoomed in as others have said they like to put them in odd spots lol, but makes it fun!

If you look very carefully at your blue treasure map pieces, you will find that
that "X" marks the spot where there is a treasure chest.

Okay, I'll bite. How exactly do you look closely at your blue map pieces? And how would they indicate at any given time where a treasure chest is? I have one in storage. It has a red cross mark on it in the middle of (presumably) my island. I haven't figured out a way to zoom in on an item in inventory. I even brought my map old table out of storage and blew the dust off it. Didn't see any 'x'. So ... um ... whaaaaat??

Have you cleared any land? You don't say what level you're on - that's always helpful when you're asking a question. You'll get chests where you have cleared land. I'm on level 41, and I get a few everyday.
