    I'm new to EU altogether, just started playing EU in Aug 2016. Glad I started on Arkadia as I enjoy it there alot. This is my first Gold Rush ever and I have enjoyed doing the Cat1 GR instance alot. Thank you and the Ark staff for bring good content and such. I do have a question though, is there any chance that there might be a treasure hunting Gold Rush event coming?? Would be nice to have a treasure hunting only event, maybe even spawn a island like for the hunting one and have it able to mine only for treasure and have chance to spawn points just like the hunting event. As treasure hunting is an Arkadia only thing, I think it would be awesome to have a treasure hunting event also. What do you think and is there something like this planned???

    In the past there were GR events where hunting, mining and crafting were going on at the same time. Currently it looks like they are now separated.

    As there is little info on what's next, here's what I think is going to happen based on the information we do have;

    7 months of GR;
    Each month consisting of 9-10 days of GR hunting division, 9-10 days of the crafting division and 9-10 days of the mining division.

    So we get the hunting, mining and crafting one each month, 7 months long. 7 events for each profession to participate in.

    *edit* to answer the question directly; no. If there is a mining division it will be for all three resources. Ores, Enmatter & Treasure.

    Thank you for the reply. I do hope they make one for treasure hunting only though even if they have the regular one that lets you mine for all 3 resources. As treasure hunting is exclusive to Arkadia, I think it would be awesome to highlight just that in it's own event and also with just mining in treasure only, would even the playing field for globals and such if making it an event.:)

    A general mining event, like in the previous GR will also encourge treasure mining, especially since treasure mining costs slightly more, and you tend to get bigger finds. So if biggest finds get prizes, treasure will be something that more miners will be looking into.

    On the negative side, treausre is mostly tt or close to tt food. With more people doing treasure, all the treasure may end up as tt food, lol.

    I hear you and agree most stuff found would end up tt food as well. I just think it would be fun to have a Gold Rush Event focused solely on treasure hunting as treasure hunting is specific to Arkadia only. I sent a copy of the thread link to Mathias, so I'm very interested to see what he says.

    Treasure still haves its uses (aakas keys, anubis weapons, some other crap) so don't write it off completely. Only problem is, if there is GR mining, the MU's will drop for a period of time. That's why I hope that mining is before crafting in these GR's and we can keep a steady MU going on loots.
