Buried Treasure is a Treasure Hunter promotion and may not currently be active.

Buried Treasure is a Treasure Hunter promotion originally released in May 2017.

During the promotion, the five chests are replaced with a grid of six-by-six tiles and each tile contains a buried chest. Of those 36 chests, six are one of the special chests listed below. There are five types of special chests. The amount of chests left to discover are shown at the right side of the interface.

On 3 May 2018, the Dominion Tower maul, Slayer Tower shortbow, and Wizards' Tower staff were added to antique chests as possible items.

On 2 May 2019, the Golden cane, Flaming head, Sunglasses, Leprechaun hat, Silver hawk, Imcando pistol, Imcando axe, and Imcando channeling rod were added to the antique chests as possible items.

From 8 November 2018 one antique chest was rewarded for opening Treasure Hunter for the first time during the promotion, which was notified with the following login message: Buried Treasure is now active! Open Treasure Hunter to get your free prize now.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • On 15 January 2019, opening Treasure Hunter to receive the free antique chest then hopping words or exiting to the lobby then returning to the game would generate another free chest. The bug was fixed 16 hours after release and any antique chests players had were removed.
