The new Vault of Tears update to Infinity Blade 2 brought with it the introduction of treasure maps. I’ll be posting all the treasure maps here as I find them, along with the locations of the treasures. This is a work in progress, so bear with me, and feel free to help out in the comments section.
1. Victors Spoils Map:
Go into the arena, and while you’re facing the second enemy (after the Wretch), turn to your right and tap on the door directly next to you. Your treasure will likely be an attack gem around +25.
2. Worn Treasure Map
At the very start of a rebirth, you’ll see this tree. Tap on it to get a treasure (I got a Big Prize Wheel).
3. Wet Loot Map
When you face Ronin, tap the water under the bridge to the right and you’ll find the Herring.
4. The Vile Map
The Vile set can be found as follows:
Sword: A new path opens up near the beginning of the rebirth. Follow it and try to pull the sword from the tree stump. It will turn out to be a monster. Defeat it and it will morph into a bigger and stronger one. Defeat them both to get the Vile Sword.
Armor: In the arena, climb up the tree. (If you don’t see a tree yet, you have to wait a few rebirths until it grows). Halfway up there will be a lair with a Gargap. Take his treasure to wake him up, then defeat him to get the Vile Armor.
Helm: You need the Crown Map (shown further down the page) to get the helm.
Shield: To the right of where you got the sword, there’s a statue of a woman holding a sword. Tap on it and if you have the Infinity Blade, you’ll be able to activate the statue. You’ll have to fight another enemy (of course) to get the shield.
Once you have all four pieces of the Vile set (sword, helm, shield and armor), equip them in the Shrine (the room where you tap on the weapon icons to get special equipment). After you defeat the guardian, tap on the stone altar. Take the elevator down to get the Holy Band, which pretty much makes you a god. It has 10 Holy power, which does damage and heals at the same time (like leeching the enemy’s life source).
5. Key Treasure Map
You’ll find it on one of the broken pillars at the top of the tower. Once you’re up there, look to the right and tap on this pillar to get a key (I got Medium).
6. Crown Map
The drawing you see is carved into the stone in the area by the Stone Demon. Tap in the spot shown on the map and you’ll get the Vile Helm.
7. Dusty Treasure Map
In the valley, to the right of where you get the Vile sword, there’s a statue of a woman with a sword. You need to tap on the sword the first thing you do when you get to the valley, or it won’t work! You’ll get the Warth from this map.
(Stay tuned for info on the Skycages update. Feel free to help each other out until then.)
