Treasure Hunting

This is a guide on how to effectively treasure hunt in Shilla.

Overview

This guide will show you the best way to get treasure, the odds of getting treasure, and any other bit of treasure info you will need to know in order to find what you are looking for.

Preparation

First off, you can't do any of this with a compass, so if you have one, discard it in Town.
Before you go any further, don't waste your time if your like a 6000 Wall Score player who just got in the Desert and is going "Yay! I wanna find me an Engagement Ring cause I'm poor and need help!" Why?
Because this guide requires you to have the maximum level of the Treasure Hunting skill possible. And at that wall score, you're getting nowhere close.

You need about 15-18 Billion experience to pull this off. So I recommend that you wait til you make at least 20 milllion exp a kill, and obviously the higher the better, so that you don't waste too much time training to make this happen. Also, you want to stay below 23500 Wall Score, otherwise you can't rent the Divining Rod.

Finding Odds

The maximum treasure hunting level is about 1300. You can train it higher, but the result is the same and more or less is a waste of precious experience. With this your odds of finding a treasure are 50/10000… or 1/200 clicks. Note that is a number, can be higher, can be lower, but for the most part that was the estimate given.

The Divining Rod has the same effect when equipped. 50/10000. 1/200. Again, can be higher, lower, but was the estimate given.

Together, they combine into 100/10000 or 1/100. Like before, can be higher, lower, but was the estimate given.

Treasure Odds

Now, once you find a treasure, here are the odds on you finding what you are looking for:
If you are on a 2 way spot, with different directions, your odds are 100% going to be a 2-way treasure.
If you are on a 3 way spot, odds are 50% 2-way, 50% 3-way.
If you are on a 4 way spot, 1/3rd 2-way, 1/3rd 3-way, 1/3rd 4-way.
If you are on a 5 way spot, 25% 2-way, 25% 3-way, 25% 4-way, 25% 5-way.

After Shilla figures out what kind of level treasure it is, it will go through another set of %'s.
Possibility of it being a food item is 50%
Possibility of it being an armor item is 20%
Possibility of it being a weapon item is 15%
Possiblity of it being a ring item is 10%
Possibility of it being an amulet item is 5%.

So, for something like the EoR, you got a 1/4 shot of it being the right group, and then a 1/20 shot of it being the actual item. So… its 1/80 from a Hidden Treasure in a 5-way.
NM Ring = 1/40
M Helm = 1/20

Searching

After getting the TH Skill to 1300, rent the Divining Rod. Now, depending on what treasure you are looking for, head to an area with those directions. Mostly though, people want the 5 way treasure. So make sure the compass is off, and start wandering around looking for a 5-way. Once you see one, stop.

Now, you need to click "Consider" or some people have clicked "Mining"… either way works just as well. The point is to refresh the screen, to get a new set of directions, and get a treasure. Keep clicking, and eventually over time, you'll come across a Hidden Treasure. Click that, and basically pray it's what you're looking for.

I would probably spend an entire day, or various times throughout a 3-day rental, til you find what you are looking for. The main items are, obviously, the E ring mentioned above, Nightmist Ring for the Elven Fetch Quest, Mithril Helm to use in the Dwarven Forge, and the Eye of Ra for training/scrolls.
