    After listening to the recent interview by David Dobson and Cyrus I was a little confused about their comments on treasure hunting.

    David seemed to suggest it would only be partially realeased i.e. we get the keys that may give access to it later. The keys being crafted I think. Said something about making them before treasure hunting is released.

    Then he also said treasure hunting will be released on 29th and we have a front page article stating it will be released 29th of may.

    So I'm confused which is it? full treasure hunting release or only the keys for it?

    This is just my interpretation of what I heard...

    So the treasure hunting of component of mining is available from the MAy 29 release. I'm a bit hazy on the details of the loot but I know it includes some items and I think it may also include components for crafting items. I believe it may also include components for crafting the keys.

    Also part of treasure hunting is the use of instances. To access an instance you need a crafted key. So we need the bps to drop for the keys and we need the components to be looted. There are various difficulties of instance and there is a different key for each degree of difficulty. Accessing an instance uses up a key. Given he said it was designed so you could do several instances in a day if you wanted, I am going to assume that the components and bps for keys will not be too rare. But it could take a little while for them to start droppping.

    Regards,
    KikkiJikki

    What Kikki said I believe. Keys are for instances, which hopefully are to come late summer. The keys needed and mats to craft them will be in advance of that. The mining finder system was only ever going to be a part of treasure hunting, and yes, we get that much next week. But yes, another interview on Friday, maybe questions will clear any confusion up then.

    If this is the case it's not a full treasure hunting release because we can only make keys but not go underground to actually use the keys for instances.

    no no what i got from it is. This release we will get lots of new stuff including new UL armours and weapons and such that will be attached to treasure hunting. so lots of new stuff with treasure hunting.

    in the AUGUST release we will be get new craftable keys from possibly treasure hunting and normal enmatter and ore matterials. The keys will be used for instances are are supposed to be a very common and high turn over thing for crafters.

    I just gotta listen to the 1st part again cause i missed the first little bit and wonder if they said anything about mission changes

    Yes, this is what I understood as well. So we can get out there and start finding stuff right away. Not sure if some of it is tied to instances, of if the key/instance stuff stands as a completely independent system from treasure hunting.

    I believe the key bps will start dropping May 29, they will be craftable but we won't be able to use they keys until august. At least that's what I understood when I listened. Not saying I couldn't be wrong.

    But we have 6 days to speculate wildly, so....

    By the way, I think we should settle it right now... are we going to abbreviate Treasure Hunting with "TH"? Where's that abbreviations article?

    Treasure hunting will be fully functional with all the goodies when it comes on the 29th.

    The instance key BP's and materials will come before the instances. Instances will come later in the summer.

    Instances and Treasure huntiing are two seperate things, but instances can certainly have mining/treasure hunting in them.

    Treasure hunting does not in any way rely on instances.

    All these wonderful questions should be asked at Zume's interview with Dave, then maybe we won't have so many different interpretations. The Interview will take place Friday at 15:00 MA time at Celeste Quarry.
