What does this information mean?


  1. Accepting the quest you receive the following two items:
  2. Use the MAL to find the treasure. Keep in mind the following:
    • The treasure is found in a random location (anywhere in the zone).
      • If you're in a group, each person will be heading to different treasure locations.
    • The MAL gives you two basic readings: a directional color and a distance strength. The directional colors are:
      • Red = directly behind you
      • Orange = somewhere behind you
      • Yellow = somewhere in front of you
      • Green = straight in front of you
      • (Example: the MAL will glow with a green hue when the treasure is located directly ahead of your current orientation.
      • Distance strength in order from far away to close are: faint, dim, dull, bright, and blinding. When you're right on top of the treasure, the MAL will glow with a blinding greenish hue.
    • Sometimes even a single step in a different direction can change how the MAL glows. If you think you're really close to the treasure and then suddenly seem to be far away, try stepping backwards a number of steps and use the MAL again. It takes a little bit of tweaking to find the treasure.
  3. Once the MAL glows with a blinding greenish hue, use the MPMDD to dig up the treasure.
  4. Return to Heron Cogcarrier.
