FormulasEdit

There are two formulas which are associated with Detect Hidden: the chance to find extra gold, and the amount of extra gold received.

Chance to Receiving Extra GoldEdit

When destroying containers or looting corpses, there is a static 20% chance to find extra gold due to Detect Hidden.

Amount of Extra Gold ReceivedEdit

The following formula can be used to calculate the amount of extra gold received:

Skill Level × 10 + Base Drop Amount × Skill Level × 0.02

Skill Level in the formula is the current number of skill points you have invested in Detect Hidden. Base Drop Amount is the initial amount of gold received from containers or looting corpses. The final value will be rounded up.

In other words, you will receive 2–10% extra gold plus a flat amount, depending on your Detect Hidden level.

For this example we will assume that you have 5 skill points in Detect Hidden. You are looting a container that contains a base amount of 154 gold. If the Detect Hidden effect triggers, you will receive the following amount of extra gold:

5 × 10 + 154 × 5 × 0.02 = 65.4, rounded up: 66

Adding this to your initial gold drop then you would receive a total of 220 Gold.

Notes Edit

  • It is recommended to train with both basic trainers in order to save up skill points and be able to find hidden treasures which can hide valuable items ranging from shards to rare, even unique equipment, and set pieces.
  • Level 5 Detect Hidden is a must in order to retrieve the full Warsworn armor set.
  • Traps disarmed at Level 4 Detect Hidden are not displayed on the map, but you can still go back later to salvage them for components with Level 8 Detect Hidden.
  • Whirlpool caches visually disappear (no visible whirlpool in the water) once you search / open them, even if there are items left inside. Level 10 Detect Hidden can help you re-locate such caches with leftover items. Move close enough and the option to search or dive will appear.
