The Treasure Trove will be open to hold special token raffles featuring Jackpot Tier items during Duskruin, drawing once a day near midnight Eastern time. There is one raffle a day. When the item you want to try to win is featured on the shelf, use "a silver raffle token" to enter. Each token is good for 1 use. Items will not cost any silver if you win.

There is a limit of one Treasure Trove Raffle win per account for the duration of this Duskuin event.

Tokens can be found by anyone in bonus loot drops in the Arena, Sewer, and the Heist.

Tokens can only be used in the Treasure Trove drawings by characters on a paid subscription.

In the Treasure Trove Building, look on the shelf for the current raffle item, and on the tray for a preview of items that will be randomly selected for the next raffles. You can INSPECT the items on both surfaces for more information.

The TownCrier LNet channel will announce the winner when it draws and what the next item on the shelf is.

The HELP Command is specialized in the Treasure Trove Room to give you Treasure Trove info!

Wiki Page instructions for contributors

There's a commented template to add the Trove items at the very end of the page when you select to edit this page or the Trove section. That lets you put a new item into the table without fuss. Copy/Paste it for new items. Please edit missing information as needed. In the unlikely event there are multiple items, just list it once, and winners can be placed in a comma separated list in the Winner column.


a silver raffle token

You analyze your silver raffle token and sense that the creator has provided the following information:

This token will give you entry to a Treasure Trove raffle!  This token currently has 1 charge.  A raffle token will be destroyed when:
 - all charges have been depleted, or
 - you win a raffle, regardless of how many charges are left.

Your silver raffle token is from Duskruin Arena and can only be used for Treasure Trove raffles at that event.  In addition, tokens are event-specific and must be used during the event from which it was obtained.

Editor's Note: You literally type HELP inside the Trove and read all you need to know, as listed below:

Rules / HELP

Via the HELP command while in the trove room...

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*   THE TREASURE TROVE   *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

Welcome to The Treasure Trove!

 - Find a raffle token somewhere in this realm.  In many cases, these tokens will drop from games and/or event activities.  In other cases, these tokens may be purchasable.  Refer to information provided about the particular event for further details.
 - Look on the display shelf.  This is the current item up for raffle.  Raffles will not run between 2 AM and noon, Eastern time, so if the shelf is empty, it is because the Treasure Trove is currently inactive and will "wake up" outside of those designated times.  (Please note: the "wake up"  time may vary by as much as 30 minutes from day-to-day.)
 - Look on the circular tray.  This holds the next item(s) up for raffle.  The "next" selection is random.
 - If you are interested in being included in the raffle for the item on the tray, insert (DROP) your token in the wooden drawer for a chance to win the raffle.
 - You can LOOK at the cabinet and the drawer to get important information about the Treasure Trove.

 - Raffle tokens have 1 use.
 - DROP your raffle token into a token drawer.  You can enter a raffle as many times as you want.

 - If you win a raffle, you (and only you) will be messaged that you won (if you're online), noting the item that you won.  This item MUST be picked up before the next raffle item draws.  If you fail to pick up the item, both the item and the token used for the raffle will be forfeit.
 - Winning accounts will be locked from raffle participation for 336 hours (14 days).

 - When the Treasure Trove is awake (not between the hours of 2AM and noon, Eastern time,) raffles will draw every 1438 minutes [23 hour(s)].  A raffle will not start (ie: no item moved to the shelf) if its draw time would fall during the sleep hours.

 - Maybe!  Depending on the event, it's possible that an NPC will buy-back your tokens.  Look for an attendant near the Treasure Trove and ASK him/her about TOKEN to get more information.

 - In some cases, participation in the Treasure Trove may require some kind of pass.  For Ebon Gate, either a Games Pass is required, or you must be participating in Deep Sea Diving.  If you are participating in the latter, you will be eligible for 7 hours (real time) to use your tokens with your first dive.  This eligibility doesn't refresh with each entry to diving, so it will need to be refreshed after the eligibility period ends.  The Games Pass and Deep Sea Diving entry licenses can be obtained in the SimuCoin store.
a very large sign

In the Common language, it reads:

* The item on the shelf is the current raffle item.  Items on the tray will be raffled next, selected randomly after the current raffle ends.  Items with no raffle entrants will be removed from raffle circulation and will not return.
* You may enter a raffle as many times as you like, provided you have eligible tokens.  (Raffle tokens obtained from Duskruin Arena may not be used for the Treasure Trove at other events like Ebon Gate.)
* Raffle wins will block the entire household from winning another raffle for the duration of this event.
* Failure to pick up a won raffle item before the next raffle is drawn will result in a forfeiture of the win.  Pick up your item as soon as you are notified to avoid item loss.
* Raffles have no limit on entries.
* Entrants living in free homes (F2P) cannot participate in these raffles.

A rainbow glaes counterweight rests at the base of the hilt, while alternating light and dark rawhide is woven together to create a sturdy grip upon the gold.  You also notice a small enchanter's glyph.
It imparts a bonus of +25 more than usual.
It is a small item, under a pound.
It is lightly weighted to inflict more critical wounds than a normal weapon of its type.
The dagger requires skill in edged weapons to use effectively.

Shaggy and scraggly rat fur squares are sewn together to create a voluminous, patchwork cloak that has a high collar and wide lapels.  Catgut, thin and opaque, binds each square together, while also providing a thick, durable edge to the either piece.  A copper ring decorates the right lapel, while the left house a burnished rat head complete with beady eyes and ivory fangs.
It appears to weigh about 5 pounds.
It is estimated that a scraggly rat fur cloak can store an exceptional amount with enough space for any number of items.

Special Property Details:

Blink, Chuckle, Get, Glance, Pinch, Point, Preen, Pull, Put, Rub, Scratch, Shake, Snap, Stretch, Thump, Wave.

If you do not have a corresponding Bloodrune active, then you will get generic messaging for the above verbs.

Lastly, a scraggly rat fur cloak must only ever be a cloak-worn item.

a heavy bronze-edged footlocker (Clockwork Armor)
In the bronze-edged footlocker you see a pair of bronzed vultite boots, a pair of bronzed vultite gauntlets, a riveted dragon's head burgonet and an articulated breastplate. [EDITOR'S NOTE: an articulated breastplate of interlaced bronzed vultite plates; suspect this is plate armor based on the description]
Clockwork Armor Info from 2016 Great Auction

"Nuts 'n Bolts" set of 4x half-plate and armor accessories that go with it. Arm greaves, leg greaves, and a helm. If you lock the accessories on to the armor, it increases the padding of the armor. The padding starts at 24 points, and reduces a wee bit each time you get hit. The wearer can TEND the armor to start a self-repairing cycle that will restore a bit of padding every half minute for 15 minutes. The user can do this once every day, and again, but if you do it more than once per day it could lock up and increase the amount of round time per each activation of TENDing it. You can NOT remove it while the repair cycle is going or while it is damaged. An articulated breastplate of interlaced bronzed vultite plates, a riveted dragon's head burgonet formed of bronzed vultite plates, a pair of bronzed vultite gauntlets constructed of overlapping plates, and a pair of bronzed vultite boots formed of overlapping plates.
