The Relic Hunter is a title rewarded from a series of exploration achievements in Mists of Pandaria. There are 28 lost treasures scattered around the continent but you’ll only need 20 for the meta-achievement. A few of these heirlooms are some of my favourite models in the game and have a few spawning areas. They are also rare spawns so won’t always be up. Once you’ve looted an item on one character, you won’t be able to loot it again.

There are four parts to the meta:

  1. Lost and Found,
  2. Finders Keepers
  3. One Man’s Trash
  4. Is Another Man’s Treasure

I was determined to get my 20th item tonight once I managed to find my 19th item earlier today. Ironically, I thought the Ancient Pandaren Fishing Charm would be one of my 20 items when it happened to be my first and only one on the beta. It’s funny how things turn out.

the Relic Hunter title

Phew! I made it.

In the end, I needed another 11 items to get the achievement but at least I have it now.

Cymre the Relic Hunter… not sure if there could ever be a more perfect title for me. :D
