OK ... I have scoured the forums to try to find a treasure  thread, but this seems the closest to addressing my issue. I also agree that certain treasure items are available at a certain time of the day or a certain day (not sure which). The only thing I'm missing from the Southern Island Treasure game is the left Emerald earring. I do not recall what time of day, nor what day of the week I picked up the right Emerald earring.

 

If ANYONE has an idea when this particular jewel appears, please share. Thanks! Smiley Happy


I've been searching for the Golden Treasure chest for a long time. A little help would be appreciated. Smiley Sad

All the other chests and finished pairs of earrings were appreciated, tho. Smiley Happy

I think it's just chance. Some are really rare. I have personally found all the items from waves 1 and 2 but I've been living at the island and each time I assay I head underwater to check.

I haven't done any digging lately... but thats in part because RE6, Jak and Daxter HD, and DBZ Budokai HD, but more because I haven't been able to replenish my tickets yet, because Christmas Shopping has prevented me from grabbing a PSN card.

So, yeah, no news whatsoever to speak of from me.

I didn't notice this mentioned, maybe it's crazy.. but do you think your avatar's gender makes any difference when appraising on whether you'll get 2 in 1s? Like the man would be more giving to a lady and vice versa, or maybe they're 'nicer' to the same gender? Just another possibility. 

Well, here's some more proof that there's a Chance of getting a Bigger fossil from a Smaller one, as well as XL's in the 1st site.

I only have access to the Public Dig Site (unless a friend invites me to the 2nd site, which is rare). So I'm only digging once a day, but thanks to this thread, getting 3 clods now instead of 1 with just two legendaries (I also bought 2 charms).

 

I only had about 5 Clods to appraise, but this was my nice prize tonight, thanks to MB:

Large clod "looks really promising" = Pteranodon Body. THEN = 2 in 1 ! XL = Mammoth Front Legs Woman Very Happy

I now have 42 fossils Lol. Not too bad I figure for only having started a few months back, with just 1 clod daily. I'm holding off on buying anymore tools to see if that affects the chances of getting those less rare, eslusive fossils that you talk about. I'm also trying to keep a log of my appraisels/fossils to see if I notice anything significant.

After my washout the last time the girl was here, this week she finally gave me a 2-in-1, yay. For info, it was a M clod, found in a M clod, and was one of the elusive shellfish, this one was the Cyrenadea (or something like that).

 

That leaves me still with another 5 shellfish to find, plus 1 very annoying half of a fish which I cant for the life of me find.

 

Good luck to all you Archeaologists out there, I hope you find something new whilst the girl is on the island.

I arrived just as Mermaid made the find. SHE IS SOOOOOO LUCKY!  Smiley Happy

 

Oh goodness don't get me started with how frustrated I am. I just got up from a nap and am going to try some more. I don't think I'll ever get the last two that I need.

 

Perhaps I need to get a script together with 100 mediums. The 100 extra large don't seem to be anything special. I had hoped that with those the assayers might just be generous. I'm wondering if given the Shellfish are in medium clods whether or not that might be a better way to try this.

A new treasure will appear at :00 / :15 / :30 / :45 and will not disappear until you pick it up or the next treasure appears.  Unlike before, you can't reenter the space to generate a new treasure.  Also, even if you click on the space to enter it before a new treasure is placed, if you do not complete the loading process before the new treasure is scheduled to appear, it won't show up for you, and you'll have to wait for the next treasure to arrive.

 

Contrary to what Conrad Max claims, it isn't possible to load it in 15 seconds, it usually takes about 3 minutes, often longer if it's your first visit to the Island for that session.  So don't wait to the last minute to enter the space before a new treasure is scheduled to arrive.

 

The treasures from the Sea Hunt are random.  You can test this out using multiple alt accounts, and you'll find there is no predictable patern .  Some of the treasures are just more rare than others, which is also why they are worth more Tropical Points.

OH MY GAWD!

 

I GOT A SECOND FOSSIL AND A SHELLFISH.

 

Got this one: Cyrenidae (M) (2+)

 

I only need this one to finish: Swiftopecten Swiftii (M) (2+)

 

i don't know if it helped but I wore all Granzella – to be specific I wore the chinese dress and I got it. I was in complete shock. I still think I'm in shock. I need one more and I'm done. Someone pinch me to be sure I'm not dreaming. I don't even know what it came from given I was simply mindlessly pressing X over and over and saw a reward pop up. I couldn't believe it. 

 

OH MY GAWD. I'll update with a picture shortly!

 

Edit: Here you go!

You're my good luck charm, I got the 2-in-1 just as you arrived.

Congratulations on finding the shellfish, which I think was the same one I found, so, just 1 more to find now!

 

I used to wear everything Granzella for the appraisals, but after last weeks washout I didn't bother this week, and it was this week I got my 2-in-1. I dont know if wearing Granzella helps, but its certainly another angle to consider...
