'Lord of the Rings Online' revives the Buried Treasure event in latest patch

Players in "Lord of the Rings Online" now have a shot at some rarer items through the revived Buried Treasure events, digs that will take place periodically throughout the year.

The Lord of the Rings Online has revived the Buried Treasure events in which players can hunt for hidden goodies, instating them as events that will occur periodically throughout the year, developer Turbine announced today.

The return of the hunt brings new rewards to dig up as well as a number of bug fixes. The current event is now live across all servers and will end on September 23rd.

The Treasure Field is in the low-lands of the Ered Luin, but players who don't want to make the trek on foot can hitch a ride with swift-travel non-playable characters located in Bree, Celondim, Michel Delving, and Thorin's Hall. Treasure caches will vary in size, with larger ones being rarer, but there is only ever one Huge Cache on the field at a time. The rarity of treasure items depend on the cache size.

Lord of the Rings Online launched in 2007 for PC.
