Buried Treasure

Dig for treasure again and find great rewards!


Treasure Chests have been lost beneath the autumn sands and the time to unearth them has come. From 00:00 game time on the 15th November through to 23:59 on the 20th November, scoop up some Buried Treasure on Treasure Hunter.



On opening the Treasure Hunter interface you'll be met with a grid-based map, and you'll open chests by clicking on squares within it.



Each square contains at least a normal chest, but 6 per grid will contain a special chest, containing a trove of 4 or 5 prizes.



These come in four types, which can contain different types of items and the amount left to find on your grid will be displayed at the side of the interface.



Here's what each chest type may contain:


Experience ChestProtean ChestSkilling ChestAntique Chest
MeteoritesProtean barsSpringsGold coins
Lava lanternsProtean hidesSpirit gemsPulse cores
Smouldering lampsProtean trapsPortable packsPrismatic lamps/stars
Hydra lampsProtean memoriesDungeoneering tokensDragon ceremonial outfit*
Celebration lampsProtean cogsSkilling dummy packsQueen's guard outfit*
Prismatic lamps/starsProtean planksCombat dummy packsWicked Hood teleports
Protean logsPulse coresD&D tokens
Protean packs (s/m/l)Silverhawk feathers
Magic notepaper

*Note that the antique chest will always contain at least one piece of these two outfits, unless you already own both – in which case it will contain rare tokens.



There's also a chance that any of these above chest types will contain a special prize: a Treasure Chest rest animation, a held Treasure Map item, or a much rarer chance to get a lucky item (including retired ones).



Good luck! May your foraging be fruitful!






What is Treasure Hunter?


Treasure Hunter is playable from within RuneScape, allowing players to use Keys to claim in-game items as prizes. These range from useful resources to rare weapons and exclusive gear.



Playing Treasure Hunter is simple - click the treasure chest icon that pops up when you log in. If you've not played before, just follow the on-screen guide.



Everyone gets at least one Key per day, and RuneScape members get two. You can earn more Keys while playing the game, or stock up by redeeming Bonds.



If you'd like more, you can also buy Keys on the website, or by clicking 'Buy Keys' within the Treasure Hunter interface in-game.

Of course Jagex, gotta make that quick buck again.

When will you start putting more effort into the MTX?

I mean, yeah, a business needs money to sustain itself, otherwise it goes out of business.

Google for Jagex's financial statements, then compare them to the "quality" updates we've received. You'd be surprised just how well they're doing financially, in fact they've been making more profit each year even if you excluded all of the MTX revenue. They could easily remove TH altogether and still make lots of profit.

Could someone please post a picture of the Queen's guard outfit on a male character?

Maybe for next time the concept could stay the same but with 2 different outfits.


This is the outfit combined with the Golden Cane keepsake.



When you own all 5 items (including the staff) you can recolour it to these colours.

So, literally, all the MTX explanation letter was totally made full of lies and you are gonna still continue to do all those MTX promos no matter how much we rant or scream at you... You will never care about your community honestly and also this is kinda weird, that you are not even total liars, but also damn lazy bastards, because you just re-released this MTX promo second time... But I guess, it is still better, because if you start making new MTX promos, then some players would get upset, that those rich lums can once again get advantage of cosmetic items and start to annoy the poor ones who would also want to get those items, but don't have money every month.
Player since 2010 September. Although, not always rich.
