    Yep there's no need to duplicate the work already being done by Lunchbox.

    Question these items are they found when using the finder, using the extractor or when you craft something out of the materials? I see in the other thread they are associated with a mat.

    SOOTO = Something Out Of The Ordinary. SOOTO finds happen when mining. You drop and you receive an item instead of just a claim deed. This is the same way beacons are now found on Calypso (and I am probably the only miner in the universe who misses the adrenaline rush of the Strange Signal finds).
    Hope this answers your question KMax

    Yes thanks, I have never gotten any of those messages, or ever found anything besides mats when mining.

    whooa mining these treasures is not for the faint of PED card that's for sure. hundreds usd in and cycleing, i'd say over 4k ped cycled and still no SOOTO... Did get a nice HoF followed by a global but no much since.

    We all have to congratulate the ones that have gotten them.

    If the jars are so rare, I can only image how rare the "rare" stuff is. About as rare as the new UL weapons in hunting loot I guess.

    If you want to find SOOTO that have better tt value, I recommend you all to find it on ark, rather on caly lol

    Over 6K PED cycled, doing treasure hunting only and 3 depths (demonic/Terramaster1, Z5, Z15), and still no SOOTO. I am actually giving up my search, as it is becoming a fruitless effort. Was fun for awhile but 600 usd worth of mining drops later ugg, moving onto other activities this one is becoming pointless.

    Hopefully MA will adjust the drop rate for us for the next update... same with the new weapons that were supposed to be in our hunting loot. I just hope these "oversights" weren't intentional, to eliminate competition during the migration event.

    I hate to tell you this but that is rather common for a sooto find. I think i have had one sooto in last 12k drops. I only noticed that beacons drop a lot more regularly, but where is the fun in finding something that is common?

    EDIT: removed my original reply

    I guess I just don't see the fun in dropping 1200 usd in bombs for that slight chance to get something then. If the other materials were worth anything and were resellable it maybe worth continuing the pursuit but as is most mined treasures are tt food and a loss, not one person was willing to give me even tt for what I had so I've just been tt'ing and loosing ped for a chance that will most likely never happen.

    Not everyone can dump grands of cash into game and not cycle and keep playing. I know I can't I need to cycle often to play and have been cycling for loss and not even close to getting a treasure drop from what I have heard so it is not worth my time ped or money to continue.

    It's sad but true that treasure hunting not totally ready yet, it is impossible to let treasure have the same average markup as ore/enmatter with a few clothes and furniture and 10 keys. Unless there are new crafted weapons that mostly uses treasure as materials to craft or I don't really think treasure would be worth anything. The demand of clothes and furniture won't be big enough to give treasure a steady market, so even Arkadia team add 200 new clothes and furniture, no matter how good they are look, they are decoration anyway, and basically buy one can use forever, the market will be filled very soon, and all treasures back to TT food once again. But I do believe that A-team has something in mind to make treasure hunting really great, just need more time to make it come true. So hold your breath and wait. ;)

    As for sooto, my last sooto is in 2011 October. I have dropped over 20k bombs since then, hope no one can beat me in this sad record. So I'm not totally offtopic ;)

    I mentioned in the other thread, maybe use treasures for crafting mining amps... that should give them some MU.

    Or just make some blueprints that use only one or two treasures that are common, that way we can craft them away instead of tt'ing them.

    To be fair i think its true that everyone should or could of known that until there is a demand for treasure via the instances or other BP's that use these materials in large quantities they would never have a decent markup, if there is too much supply and little demand it is logical? I'm not sure if my memory is correct but the old sooto's on caly were quite rare and required on average 6k drops to recieve one, some were luckier than others and would get them after 2K drops, the difference is that treasure hunting does cost a lot per drop. It is best to see it this way? as a extra bonus and pleasant surprise and not the sole reason to search for treasure, otherwise you are bound to be unhappy with the results.
    Entropia has always been about cycling at a lvl you can afford if you want to keep playing, anything else is a gamble.
    I agree that if you are TT-ing your mining loot it is time to change what you are doing if its not rewarding for you :)

    well whilst i was mining away like a mining fool i also tryed to keep the used and the rare with some mu akas plating is rare,but morons sell it for tt, and some fixers tryed to keep it at near +0 % , i was doing ok untill i left. balancing agent too should sell ok . ho hum , the economy collapses when i turn my back:D
    by the way i found 2x sooto dunno how many drops but im "able" TH , then i went to cally and had the crapiest mining "ore"session ever,then hit a beacon , i tell u its down to losses or the way you mine , think pattern,think area coverage , think holyshit am i crazy or what....oh no im not look sooto's!!!

    more items wouldnt hurt thats for sure , i like the idea of a treasure amp , one good for like 200+ treasure bombs . they should be only used for treasure and have higher efficiency than any other mining amp and good dura!!! or whats the point for the end user???

    Well i guess its time to come back and show u guys how its done;)
