Scan (Treasure Hunting Kit).png
4 Scan the area for buried treasure. Red: more than 15,000. Blue: more than 5,000. Green: less than 5,000.


  • When used outside of the Crystal Desert, the message "Item can only be used in the Crystal Desert." will appear in chat.
  • Scan will mark an area on your map with blue circle. The chest is located in, or close to the border of that area. Upon clicking the Special action button you will see a colored orb, moving in the direction of a chest. Red = far, Yellow = closer, Green = very close.
  • Every 2 hours, on the odd UTC hour, during the 20 minute long "The Search for Buried Treasure" event in Desert Highlands these kits lead to Superior Buried Treasure.
  • If you try to open a buried treasure that was located by someone else, it will work, if you have a kit yourself. However, it will expend one of your Kits.
  • The special skill is on a timer. It will disappear if not used within a certain amount of time.
