Hi! i'm new here! And Buried Treasure question

Recommended Posts

Good morning!  I've been using this very helpful site for probably a year now and can't thank you all enough for your help.  This morning's trudy mess - up prompted me to finally post.  Tears.  My next question is, does anyone win anything anymore at "buried treasure"?  I gave up a month ago, but not before pumping tonnes of money into it.  I never even won booby prizes.  is it just broken?

No, it gives out prizes still; just a matter of luck. I do it in hopes of the avatar.

I think that maybe it was sinking the economy a bit so they changed the odds? I used to get something good almost daily, now I rarely get anything at all and when I do it's either junk (map piece- which oddly enough I still hoard) or 2k.

 

EDIT: I realized as I was doing the dailies that as I wrote this I was thinking of the Forgotten Shore, not Buried Treasure. Buried Treasure does occasionally pay out, and when it does (for me at least) it usually makes up for losses. Typically 5k and 20k.

I often go on auto-pilot doing dailies so I couldn't remember if I had won anything recently... then played just now and found 1k. Not a fortune, but it's something!

I play it for the avatar. I believe it's mostly random, but I remember some theory about the location of the treasure moving across the board like a 'wave'; dunno if that was proven or not.

Payouts are kinda rare, but if you're looking for the avatar, then go for it. (I've been at it for years and still nothing, though...)

I play it for the avatar, but I win something often enough. I always use the same square, this one, for no other reason than because.

Not the same coordinates though, just somewhere within that square.

Hopefully NOT starting off as I mean to go on today. xD

I'll play this 2 or 3 times a day I'd say, and there's not usually that many days that go by before I win something.

I'll go out on a limb here and say the treasure definitely does drift. Bearing in mind that I always click in the same general area and I've had days where I'll win a dubloon or 2.5k on my first try, and then 500np on my second, and yellow growth on my third, sequences like that.

I'm told it drifts and if you can quickly hit where someone else won a prize, you'll win a prize there as well.   I don't think this has been firmly tested.   I used to pick a spot then stay there until I won something, then move to a new spot.   Did okay, but not enough to bother with any more.

I know I'll certainly not bother with it any more if I ever manage to get the avatar. 😅
