Total War: WARHAMMER Wiki

Treasure hunts are a new type of event introduced in Total War: Warhammer II. Instead of choosing to colonize a ruined settlement, an army/Lord can choose to treasure hunt. This brings up an event window with some text, and a puzzle to solve, after which a reward is given. An army cannot colonize a settlement on the same turn they treasure hunt.

Treasure hunts can also be done in the ocean: at shipwrecks, sea corpses, skull reefs, fell cargo, mysterious islands and remnants of battle. Some of these also present options, while others merely have an instant effect. Some even require the player to win a battle.

For a list of treasure hunts that have been removed from the game with the Aye-Aye! Patch, see Treasure hunts/removed.



Added in the Aye-Aye! Patch. Some of these have multiple variations.


If the player attempts to use Flank Speed stance to reach a sea treasure hunt that includes a battle, they will get the Sea Location of Interest! event, which indicates that they were going too fast to explore it, and they need to change to neutral stance.

In many of these ocean treasure hunts, the player can choose to fight Rogue Pirates to claim a greater amount of money.
