Since we have recently added artifacts, we are now able to expand on this and add a whole new side to the game - Treasure Hunting! Similar to fishing, you will be able to excavate for treasures here and there.
Let's do a breakdown of new things added in today's update.
This is where it all begins. If you go to Keepers' Village you will find a new character there - The Archeologist. There is a small quest that you need to complete for him and then he will teach you how to dig for treasure at various spots in the world.
The Treasure Spots
There are now numerous treasure spots of different sizes and potential rewards. A lot of them have Artifacts in them, so they are worth digging into! Unfortunately, to find the majority of the spots it will require creating a new player - or at least new town. Towns existing prior to this update have a limited number of treasure spots available.
You cannot do excavation without tools. You will need to find some tools - the Archeologist will help you to get started on this as well.
Treasure Hunter Perk
The perk is working now and improves your treasure hunting process. More complex treasure places will require you to have this perk.
Treasure spots are perfect places to find artifacts, so let us know in the comments below what kind of artifacts you have found - if any. You might need to raid some ruins though.
