Treasure Maps

Treasure Dirt MoundLost Treasures are found in every zone in Elder Scrolls Online. These treasures can’t be seen unless you have a corresponding map, and when you do they are displayed as a pile of dirt (dirt mound).

Treasures you can dig up are often not particularly valuable, but they are still a source of gold and items which can yield some rare traits useful for research.

In a way treasure maps are similar to survey maps you get from crafting writs: only you will be able to see and loot the treasure, and you need a map in order to do so.

Unlike skyshards, treasure maps can be difficult to spot even when you know its location. In certain terrain these dirt mounds can be hard to notice so feel free to refer to our maps for more detailed coordinates and explanations on how to find them.

Where to get treasure maps?

Cyrodiil Treasure Map VIII

Cyrodiil Treasure Map VIII

A few dozen treasure maps are available exclusively if you purchased Collector’s Edition (Explorer’s Pack) of Elder Scrolls Online. Other treasure maps are gained from monster drops or lootable objects, or alternatively you can purchase them from other players on guild stores or via direct trading.

Considering lost treasures don’t give out valuable rewards I would not advise spending gold on them. Achievement junkies may wish to find treasures and complete all related achievements, so you’ll be glad to know they are fairly inexpensive on guild stores.

How to dig a treasure?

To dig a treasure you need to have the corresponding map in your character’s inventory (bank stash does not work). You’ll need to find a specific location where the treasure is located, and each map only allows digging up one specific treasure.

Once you dig up your treasure, the map is consumed and will disappear from your inventory.

Once you have the map and found the location, you can simply right-click the “dirt mound”, after which a loot-able chest object will appear with your rewards.
