Description

Theodore Gorse is a treasure hunter first encountered during the The Ballad of Bingo Boffin. He proclaims himself a master treasure hunter, but also has a reputation for employing others to do his work, then claims those triumphs as his own. In the same spirit, the Treasure Bugan Event tasks players with retrieving treasure from Treasure Bugans that spawn in scaled instances and returning it to Theodore Gorse in exchange for cosmetics.

Dates

This event premiered on July 22, 2021, and ran initially until July 26.

Event Information

Treasure Bugans spawn in most scaling instances, regardless of tier or size (solo, duo, 3-man or otherwise). A treasure bugan will not always spawn, but when it does, it will spawn in the same location for a given instance. Using Theodore Gorse's Lucky Feather will increase the chance of a bugan spawning.

When encountering a bugan, the player will receive a quest to defeat it within 60 seconds. If it is not defeated in this time, the bugan escapes, the quest fails, and no reward is given. In order to accept this quest, the player must be at the same level as the instance. This quest has a cooldown of about 5 minutes. If encountering another treasure bugan during this quest cooldown, the player will not get the reward for defeating the bugan.
