How are you people doing with treasure maps?

I have been killing mobs like crazy for 2 days and I have gotten 44 maps. Gotten two off-hand weapons but still no main-hand.

It shouldn't be too easy but this is a bit much. Me and another guy have been trying to figure out how and where you get them but there doesn't seem to be much logic to it. Sometimes you get nothing at all for hours and other times you get one here and one there.

What has your experience been?

    I can relate. Does not seem to be any logic to it. Got some maps in the morning y-day, nothing during the day and then some more in the evening.

    Considering that the weapons in question are a good update for the majority of players, who are still using Alabaster or Burnished, and basically the second or third best weapons in the game I think it is just fine that people have to spend a few days farming them.

    I see no need to change anything.

    I'm not saying it should be too easy either. Guess it's something to do.

    48 now. Not sure if it helps but I do the repeatable quests you get while farming so it takes me all over the map.

    I got 1 map from the very first mob I killed on day one and none since, so I think it will take more than a few days to farm

    I've noticed that on my dps main getting treasure maps is really easy and consistent. a couple maps an hour on average.

    On my healer who is quite geared and runs a xuna to help clear mobs while questing i've managed to get 1 map in 6 hours of farming. Maybe its RNG I dont know....


    I'm not sure what a good average amount of time for farming new mod weapons is, and im not expecting to get a whole set the first week. But if im only getting 1 map every 6 hours of farming that seems a bit excessive in my opinion.

    2-3 maps per hour seems fairly average but then you suddenly get nothing for an hour or two or even longer. I've only been doing it on one char so far.

    Try a few weeks or months .... I have time to farm like 4 hrs every day since the mod stared ... At best I got 4 maps/day on my OP and so far I haven't seen any weapon. As Paladin I do not kill mobs as fast as DPS so yes ... Cryptic again build in a problem that favors one class over another... GOOD JOB.... keep up and soon you will have no players to play this game

    What Maps? 1 week, doing quests, encounters, kill mobs, ZERO maps. It´s a myth, maps don't drop in Avernus.

    Yeah. You are right. I have changed my mind a bit. My suggestion now is actually to keep a low drop rate for the regular mobs, but increase it for the Elite mobs, and increase it signifuicantly for the rare, named ones, like the dockmaster.
    Hoping for improvements...

    i think the drop rates of maps should be increased across the board
    keep the absurdily low rng for the weapons but at least give player the incentive to keep running
    at the moment theres more incetive to keep running vallenhas due to being able to at least grab a chicken every few runs

    Either improve the drop rate or improve the contents. There's no joy in grinding mobs for an hour only to be rewarded with an aquamarine.

    alot people exploit the treasure maps or cheating to get it because the drop rate is like 0.05% the drop rate is so low you can farm 5 hours and you get nothing welcome to farming simulator

    I got the main weapon with 6 maps. The offhand carries more than 200 maps and still nothing.

    Well, if someone else is getting maps, and I am not, they are obviously exploiting the game somehow.

    I'm not looking for forgiveness, and I'm way past asking permission. Earth just lost her best defender, so we're here to fight. And if you want to stand in our way, we'll fight you too.

    Well, according to SOME people, playing the game as it is designed, for instance by peeking into dungeon chests to see if the rewards are worth spending a key on, is exploiting the game. By this logic, taking advantage of certain toons to have favorable RNG ratios, could also be seen as an exploit.

    To list that here will get your account banned, even if its trying to be helpful to the company and warn them about it. Plain and simple, if you find out what it is..don't do it. Not worth the ban in the long run.

    I may be unlucky, but it seems like since Thursday's patch the map drop rate is even lower now! Pre-patch, I would get 3 maps a hour (average) but since this patch, I've farmed for 4 hrs and not one single map. Perhaps when they took the LF placeholder out of the loot table, they removed the map as well?

    What I noticed is that I got more map drops once close to the completion of campaign tasks :/
