A buried ancient relic.

Ancient relics are exclusive rewards obtained during the Smashing Relics promotion on Treasure Hunter. They can be smashed onto the ground to obtain rewards within, which include a medium cash bag, and a random reward like gems, prismatic lamps, and former Treasure Hunter and Squeal of Fortune items.

During the promotion, members can also receive up to two ancient relics per day by finding them partially buried in the ground in various places. Ironmen, however, cannot pick up these buried relics, and instead receive the message You're unable to interact with this relic on an ironman account.. Once two relics have been picked up, players cannot see any further relics until reset.

Locations[edit | edit source]

Partially buried relics can be found on members' worlds in the locations listed in the table below. The relics do not appear on the minimap, and there are no requirements to obtain them (aside from the restriction on ironmen). As the locations vary by world, and also change each hour, not every location listed will currently have a relic. Multiple relics can spawn per hour.
