So, I got three items that start quests from Earth invasions. I went to where one of these treasures are supposed to be, but I found nothing. Did they remove these quests when 1.3 was released?

According to the o-boards this seems to be a universal problem. And it's not just that we're missing something because apparently there was nothing all that special about finding them when they were working on the test shard. I'd guess those quests are bugged for the moment. I'm just holding on to my maps and seeing if anything happens with it.

There are 3 Treasure Maps that drop from rifts in Shimmersand. Each is for a Hidden Cache and all 3 have different spawn locations in Shimmersand. I have camped these spots for about a hour each and have never found a single Hidden Cache.
It would seem that the reward would be somewhere in the lvl 43 area, as anyone can receive a map drop from a rift. It would also stand to reason that you would have a good chance of getting a blue item, however, since no one has yet to find a Cache and complete the quest, the rewards are unknown.
If anyone has more/better info than I, please let us know.

According to people on the official boards who have playtested the update on the test server, the treasure maps intentionally can't be completed until a later phase. So hold on to them.

The treasure maps and the hidden caches are now fully functional. They are extremely easy to locate and guarded by non-elites. I had four maps and earned 25 seals with each cache and a quest turn in for a rare staff or token --- it was below what I use and BoP --- so trader trash for me.

not to mention they are repeatable and you get 25 coins everytime.
i had like 5 of them in my bag and i could just stand near the quest chest and keep accepting and turning in :)

I've had them drop for a level 30 with a pickup in Gloamwood. So not only high level.

I also had one evaporate on me today. I opened the bag and it just vanished. I thought it was because I'd done it previously but reading above that can't be it. The shard was suffering horrible lag after the influx of transferrees so maybe the lag ate it.

I'm loving these quests! I've gotten them in Stillmoor, and Shimmersand, but I've also seen them drop in Silverwood on my lowbie Guardian.

I've also seen some abyssal guys showing up at an equivalent level to myself. Usually the cultist has an abyssal drudge minion with him, and they're terrorizing a dwarf. The cultist himself drops a coin, and talking to the dwarf after gives a bag that has a coin and either a scroll or a potion. I've found at least 3 spawns for these guys in Droughtlands. Every little bit helps!
