What’s a pirate’s life without a treasure map and some digging on that X-spot? This week Tale of Pirates ( http://top2.igg.com) officials have cast the spotlight on the all-time favorite feature Treasure Digging system, showing how a pirate’s life goes beyond cutting down barnacled monsters in Tales of Pirates II.

If you reach Level 41, you can approach Treasure Hunter Leya in Argent City and spend 2,000 G to purchase a Killing Token. Inscribed on the token will be the last known coordinates of robbers who made off with precious treasures from the city. Hunt down these scurvy dogs and recover a map to their hidden loot. These bounty quests can be done several times a day. By nabbing these infamous hoodlums, you will improve their chances of uncovering the whereabouts of the rarest treasures.

Getting your hands on a map is simply the beginning. Using the coordinates on the map, you will embark on a grand journey across the waves and the continents in search of these hidden riches. What might be concealed under the layers of sand and dust? You will need to dig to find out. Wondrous rewards await those who make the effort, including gold, copious amounts of EXP, Death Set Parts which will yield the ultimate Death Set Armor, and items from the item mall which could only be bought with real-life cash.

Of course, with robbers being a mischievous bunch, fake maps floating around are aplenty. If lady luck shines upon them, however, players may chance upon a portal to the mystical Fortune Room. The place is protected by ferocious guardians, and only the bravest buccaneers can defeat them and lay claim to the trove of amazing treasure of the secret room. Fancy your very own Baby Black Dragon? Want a powerful purple weapon? Or… the most epic weapon with incredible attack prowess, the legendary Evil Sword? All these and more will be the booty waiting in the Fortune Room for pirates with the most luck and pluck!

Treasure Digging is but one of many exciting features found in TOP II. Join the game now and immerse yourself in the exhilarating thrills and spills of a pirate’s life!
