Mysterious indeed, for now...
Finishing your Island Weekly now also give you a random treasure map, that give you a follower mission
List of treasure map on WowHead Database :
Follower missions rewards are random but bonus rewards is always 1500 AP, so far for me :
16-21 Titan Residuum
Pets, Mounts and BoE's (seems to be anything that can also drop from Island expeditions)
I got a mission for 20 Residuum. Wow, that was underwhelming.
Do these things have a time limit? I didn't see one on the table when I used the map.
I picked one up last night, used it, and saw there was a pet reward.
I went to bed as my followers were on a 6 hour mission already. Woke up, the mission is gone.
I just added screenshot of mount poping up as mission from treasure map. should be visible soon
Using the treasure map gave me a mission that would expire after 8 hours, so make sure you use it when you've got followers ready to be sent out.
Fortune and glory, friend, fortune and glory...
How much do these missions cost in terms of war resources?
I got a mission for
from the map.
I got 5k gold from my current 3 120s. Roommate got 19
I will update my comment with other stuff I got in the future working on my other 2 110s getting them to 120 right now.
is it me or if you do the map on an alt it will require you completing the war campaign to unlock certain heroes aswell as level them up in order to beat its item level requirement? nice manipulation of the player base blizz
After I got this mission, I couldn't for the life of me get Shaw to give me the proper troops to run this mission. I tried killing off my troops as quick as I could to get new ones, but I never got the "needed troops" and the quest disappeared. There goes 5,000 gold this week, seems like a bad tease from Blizzard. "Oh do you want these monies? Good luck beating our RNG boss."
What's the point of these rare missions if you can't complete them due to the game's inadequate RNG settings?
Oomgut Ritual Drum
from the mission.
reward was a piece of transmog gear that i cant equip or use. Just like regular island expedition loot..
Disappointing for a weekly reward + 20 hour mission. At least reward something we can use.
Would rather take gold or ap, Dont implement game features like azerite gear and ap farm that incentivizes playing one character, then turn around and give rewards for completely different classes...
Got the Treasure Map "Wild Ride" from completing the heroic island quests. I loaded it up in the mission log and activated it. The description said I will be rewarded with a level 310 leather Feedbark Striders. I have no damn use for it as a level 379 hunter with mail gear. Nothing else is listed, like any AP, Gold, or Titan Residuum.
I sent already a bug report and ticket. Will update this entry once I got a response. My take on this is: If Blizzard can't do any better on this, just drop it. It's not a "rare" mission if you get crap worth less than anything else any mission can get you. It also takes over one full day.
I got a
from my map. Didn't know that BOE weapon could come from maps ...so happily surprised !
It seems there's some misinformation and misunderstanding of the potential rewards from the Treasure Map Missions.
First, the reward that spawns is ENTIRELY RANDOM. Yes, you may receive transmog that you cannot use. No, these missions are not intended to give you gear that will upgrade beyond your 375 gear. None of the rewards from Island Expeditions had that potential before. The only "upgrade" that any number of these transmog items could make sense for would be a fresh alt.
Second, the reward can be any number of items. There is potential for Gold, Azerite Power, and Titan Residuum, as well as any of the rewards found on Island Expeditions: Mounts, Pets, Toys, Blue 325 Weapon Transmog, Green 310 Armor Transmog.
The Treasure Map mission is entirely RNG, and it's not a bug if you get an item you cannot use (a hunter with a plate armor mission), simply send that to an alt that can utilize it, or sell it on the Auction House. Please do not expect to see 375 gear, as Island Expeditions were never intended as a means of gearing up.
The Treasure Map missions are intended to 1: Incentivize individuals to complete their islands each week to obtain more of the rewards from said Islands; 2: help individuals catch up in a way with acquisition of the already established Island Expedition rewards (see above).
Say for instance you've completed all of your islands to finish your weekly quest, but you received no loot, except maybe some dubs. Now, with the treasure map, you're at least guaranteed one piece of loot (from the variety of options)!
I picked up the
from my treasure map last week! Been hunting that one for a while! Stoked!
Do the maps themselves disappear on reset? As in, can you stockpile them, or save one for when Season 2 happens (to try to get lucky and spawn a higher value AP reward after AK steps up)?
I seem to have some misunderstandings regarding the map. I used mine and I received nothing. My question is if you actually get a mission every time you use it or it’s by luck? I opened a ticket and the GM said he cannot discuss the rewards of the map and just directed me to this link. So do I get a mission every time I use a mystery map?
After months of doing these and getting either gold or Titan Residuum, I finally got something different! The Candle toy that puts a candle on your head.
Sometimes I get a map that will only give me a success rate of 94%. It's usually the really good ones. Is there any way to boost the percentage? They even tease with a bonus reward, but I'd be satisfied with a guaranteed win.
