    I could not find a slot for the Arkadian Golden Key Blueprint in the tools BP book. If there is no slot for it in the book how can it be crafted? Could you please double check it is in the game?

    Cyrus: after a couple month of treasure hunting with very low numbers of treasure drops, these instance come and drop 3 armour parts (that i know of) within an hour or two which had previously been found while treasure hunting.

    Is there any point to treasure hunting now? is it a dead system already? or can u give us some good news about it?

    It appears the Arkadian Golden Key Blueprint has not been included in the release. We apologise for any inconvenience, and are assured it will be available in the patch next week.

    On the contrary, Treasure Hunting (which as you know is more than mining!) has just been enhanced. The mined "Treasure" resources will now be in greater demand. Treasure drops will continue from mining. We have simply added another way to hunt for treasure. Basically, it is the opposite of dead. For Arkadia, this is another step in coming to life!

    Cut the spin Cyrus and answer the question.


    Treasure 'hunters' are finding treasure at an insane level more than treasure 'miners'. As for the resources, you may aswell have just added those to the regular ore/energy finds and forgotten about the 'treasure hunting' beacuse u get a 'something out of the ordinary' so rarely that's it's almost pointless.

    Since treasure hunting started there's been 5 liakon parts found mining and in the past couple of hours there's been 4 found hunting. Mah'kette seems not so bad at 11 v 4, but considering the time scale involved it's still crazy.

    I like the idea of the instances but u really need to put a LOT of thought into the mining side of things because treasure 'mining' is pointless if u want to find treasure.

    Actualy, at the rate those armour parts are been found in the instances i'd be surprised if there isn't a problem with the loot system.

    well, i am going to add my voice to slither's, with the treasure dropping at the rate it is from hunting in instances compared to the rate this stuff was dropping with mining i really dont see the point in treasure mining and i really dont know what you guys were thinking, treasure mining looked to be something special but now it seems pretty pointless.
    im just glad i waited for the main part and that my storage isnt full of junk resources only good to feed the TT with :P
