# Area Description Map

2 Arrowhead Vale Glide southeast from the Wanderer's Waypoint, the chest is inside the tent in the center of the Quetzal camp. Auric Basin chests Arrowhead Vale 2.jpg
3 Arrowhead Vale From the Northwatch Waypoint, head west and slightly south. There is a set of mushroom steps leading up the trunk of a tree (above the "e" in Arrowhead on the world map). The chest is at the top of the second flight of steps. Auric Basin chests Arrowhead Vale 1.jpg
4 Burnisher Quarry After reaching Burnisher Quarry, either by ley-line gliding or via the Nuhoch Wallows south of Wanderer's Waypoint, follow the circuitous path towards the hero challenge but instead of gliding across to the north, drop down to the chest located at the top of the waterfall. (Alternatively visit the waterfall after the vista/hero challenge). Auric Basin chests Burnisher Quarry 1.jpg
5 Maguuma Shallows Head east from Northwatch Waypoint, and climb up the mushroom steps. Instead of heading left to the Quetzal, head right and use the ley-line to glide over to a ledge. Four hostile Itzel can be found in the cave beyond, two patrol and the other watches the sleeping flopper. (If you avoid attacking the flopper it can be ignored entirely). The chest is to the right of the campfire. It is possible to reach this chest without ley-line gliding, however you will first have to take the Nuhoch Wallows to Burnisher Quarry, and then use Updraft mastery to reach the ledge, which takes much longer.

6 Maguuma Shallows Head east from the Northwatch Waypoint, and then climb the mushroom steps over to the waterfall. A second flight of steps leads to two Veteran Quetzal guarding a chest. Auric Basin chests Maguuma Shallows 1.jpg
7 Maguuma Shallows Head east from Northwatch Waypoint, and follow the path along the side of the hill. There is a small cave nestled within the roots on your left, with 3 Itzel Shadowleapers guarding a chest. Auric Basin chests Maguuma Shallows 3.jpg
8 Bristleback Cavern This chest is found above the Quetzal hero challenge. Climb the steps in the tree to get there. Auric Basin chests Bristleback Cavern 1.jpg
9 Eastwatch Bluff On a ledge to the left of the waterfall. Head east from the waypoint and drop down to the chest. Auric Basin chests Eastwatch Bluff 1.jpg
10 Bristleback Chasm Starting from the Eastwatch waypoint, head south up the vine. Auric Basin chests Bristleback Chasm 1.jpg
11 Bristleback Chasm Glide southwest from the eastwatch waypoint, the chest is on a branch looking towards the waterfall, with several Veteran Quetzal nearby Auric Basin chests Bristleback Chasm 2.jpg
12 Mossheart Walk Head north from the Chak Hollow Waypoint. Due south of the chest are some mushroom steps which you can use to climb up, and then you must jump across the ledges to the NPCs. The chest is to the right of the NPCs, overlooking Bristleback Chasm. Auric Basin chests Mossheart Walk 1.jpg
13 Mossheart Walk Cross the bridge to the pylon that spawns after the completion of the event Gather meat from saurian nests to attract the wyvern away from the Mossheart pylon. The chest can be found to the behind the hostile mushrooms, under the "h" in "Mossheart Walk" on the world map. Alternatively, if the pylon has not been activated, you can glide from the top of the bouncing mushroom just to the north of the bridge. Auric Basin chests Mossheart Walk 2.jpg
14 Chak Hollow Head west from the Chak Hollow waypoint. If you head up the ramp to the north of the point of interest, then you can glide to the chest without fighting any mordrem. Auric Basin chests Chak Hollow 1.jpg
15 Morwood Wilds From the Southwatch Waypoint, head south to the entrance to the Morwood Wilds. On the northern side of the first clearing, climb up a tree root followed by some mushroom steps to reach a ledge that leads to the chest next to two hostile sparkflies. Alternatively, in case the entrances to the Morwood Wilds are blocked by vines, this chest can be reached by using the updrafts above the Jawatl Grounds to climb to the highest point of the log. From here you can glide over the vine wall into the closed off area. Auric Basin chests Morwood Wilds 2.jpg
16 Morwood Wilds Head south from Southwatch Waypoint into Morwood Wilds. Go west at the crossroads to the enclave south of the letter "M" in "Morwood Wilds" on the world map. The easternmost bouncing mushroom will propel you onto a ledge shared by two Mordrem Snipers. The chest is up the mushroom steps and across the trunk. Auric Basin chests Morwood Wilds 1.jpg
17 Griffonfall This chest is found along the path of the A Fungus Among Us adventure, in the first large cavern at the bottom of the waterfall. Auric Basin chests Griffonfall 1.jpg
18 The Falls At the Falls, head up the southernmost vines with the mushroom steps. The chest is right at the top. Auric Basin chests The Falls 1.jpg
19 Lastgear Standing Climb up to the area with Quetzals which would normally lead to the golem hero challenge (if you were to glide across the leyline). The chest is north of the champion. Auric Basin chests Lastgear Standing 2.jpg
20 Lastgear Standing Head to the golem hero challenge, and then complete the Lastgear Standing jumping puzzle. The chest is at the end. Auric Basin chests Lastgear Standing 1.jpg
21 Westwatch Patch From the Westwatch Waypoint, take the path that leads to the cave where Auran the Golden Ooze appears. After the Ooze has appeared, a passageway appears at the back - the cave beyond contains a few elite trolls and a chest. Auric Basin chests Westwatch Patch 3.jpg
