Introduction


icon Archaeologist’s Map is a very rare treasure to collect. It requires you to grind monsters to collect 4 rare items to craft it and can take hundreds if not thousands of hours to acquire all three pieces so just be aware that this is not something you should expect to get quickly if you do decide to go for it. It’s also recommended to use Item Drop increase buffs as much as possible to increase your chances and try to make the grind a little faster.

The Archaeologist’s Map allows you to teleport to any town and back to your locatio
n. Simply right-click the item to use it.
  • You can only return back to your original location within 30 minutes from teleporting to town
  • You cannot teleport back to your original location if you leave the town you teleported to
  • Cannot be used during a node war or siege
  • Cannot be used during Red Battlefield or if you are in jail
  • The map has a cooldown of 6 hours


Creating the Archaeologist’s Map



The Archaeologist’s Map requires the following items to create it:
icon Archaeologist’s Map Piece (Grinding monsters at Roud Sulfur Mine)
iconArchaeologist’s Map Piece (Grinding monsters at Roud Sulfur Mine)

iconArchaeologist’s Map Piece (Grinding monsters at Pila Ku Jail)
iconArchaeologist’s Map Piece (Grinding monsters at Pila Ku Jail)
icon Blood Ruby (craft using processing or buy from the central market)
icon Ocean Sapphire (craft using processing or buy from the central market)
icon Gold Topaz (craft using processing or buy from the central market)
icon Forest Emerald (craft using processing or buy from the central market)


Once you have all 8 items you must place them in the following pattern in your inventory to create the Archaeologist’s Map




How to identify the pieces


When the parts drop, they all have the exact same name and icon:
iconMap of Unknown Piece

This can be frustrating because in each grind spot, two different pieces can drop and you won’t know which one you have unless you check your system chat to see which mob it dropped from.

You can identify the parts by taking them to the Caphras’ Journal at the Caphras Cave node near Florin.

The Caphras’ Journal can be a little hard to find so refer to the images below for help.

Once you get to the Node Manager in Caphras Cave, follow the left path going down into the cave. Keep following until you reach the bottom of the cave where there is a pit in the middle called the “Caphras’ Seal”. On the right of the seal, there is a doorway that you must hit to destroy and enter into the secret part of the cave.



After entering the secret part of the cave, you can find the Caphras’ Journal on the table in the middle of the room.



Interact with the book and choose the “Exchange” option to identify any map pieces you have. This will change their name and icon, allowing you to distinguish which piece you have.





Obtaining the pieces


Roud Sulphur Mine


Roud Sulphur Mine is where you can obtain two of the pieces for the map. Roud Sulphur Mine is a fairly easy grind spot for level 58+ and has a recommended AP of 210 and 250 DP. In this grinding spot you do NOT get the desert disease and there is a Villa nearby which also has a daily quest to kill monsters at Roud Sulfur Works.

iconThe first piece can be obtained by killing the “Lava Tukar” mob only. It has a 0.003% chance of dropping.

iconThe second piece can be obtained by killing the “Lava Devourer” mob only. It has a 0.002% chance of dropping.

In this grinding spot you do NOT get the desert disease and there is a Villa located just north of Pila Ku Jail, which also has a daily quest to kill monsters there.

iconThe first piece can be obtained by killing the “Iron Fist Warder” mob only. It has a 0.0025% chance of dropping.
