    Extremely strange Treasure Map, impossible coordinates.

    Heya! I like doing treasure maps, and I'm from the NA server. I was buying some today, and found a cheap one with some pretty... interesting coordinates. This is what I found:

    Now, this is where it gets concerning. If you're unfamiliar with the coordinate system, W and S are like longitude/latitude. If you plug these numbers into a known, well functioning map website for ArcheAge, it shows that the map is basically impossible to solve.

    I just made this account to post thing since I never really used the forums before. I'm curious if this is potentially a hacked in item, or some item that has been broken through some old patch or something. It was quite cheap on the auction house so I assume they were trying to get rid of it. Willing to give more details in game to a GM if they'd like to investigate, thanks! If anyone is experienced with these sorts of maps dropping from the in-game methods (ghost ships, advanced fishing), please let me know.

    If you don't throw it away and keep selling on AH with a cycle, someone may use in 12.5 patch lol. I don't think it's hacked or exploited. Just a 5-8g item. Must be a bug

    That is very interesting. I also think it's a bugged item. Perhaps it's locating to an instance. ArcheAge is "truly" an open-world game because even the instance maps are actually present in the actual game world somewhere. Usually in inaccessible or off-map locations like those coordinates. You could even theoretically travel between them (if you managed to glitch out of an instance somehow and survive). For example Ayanad Library zone is actually floating above all that debris in Queen's Chamber where Orchidna is (so you're actually seeing the "same" sky).
