Yes the monkey of Monkey palace will be able to help you trade Treasure Chests for greater treasures. Find out when Monkey Palace is open for business, coming soon.

Treasure Isle Pirate Ship

treasure isle pirate ship

Yarrrr, Maties! There's pirates in those waters you're exploring, and now you'll have to build your own pirate ship, which you must use to be able to plunder hidden treasure from the just-released Pirates Barricade islands. To get started building your very own pirate ship, you'll see a pop up message when you log in to the game that says "A pirate ship! Put this in the sea or in your backpack."

To get started building right away, select Place It -- and then situate the ship in the water surrounding your personal island. Then, it's time to get to work -- you'll spend 40 Energy total (5 per activity) getting the frame prepped for final construction.

treasure isle pirate ship frame

Hammer Hull - 5 Energy 2x
Rig Rigging - 5 Energy 2x
Batten Hatches - 5 Energy 2x
Scrub Decks -- 5 Energy 2x

If you've been playing FrontierVille, the whole building process will be instantly familiar. After spending energy to prep a buildable item, well, that's just the beginning. To 'Finish' the pirate ship, you're going to have to collect construction materials from your friends (or buy them for 1 Island Cash each or 22 Island Cash for all of them) to get the job done. treasureisle=finish-pirate-ship

You'll need 25 construction materials in all, which breaks down to five (5) of the following:


  • Ship Nails

  • Planks

  • Nautical Rope

  • Sailcloth

  • Paint


You can send pirate ship construction materials to fellow treasure hunters by sending them as gifts. You have two of the five available in under the Free Gifts tab of the game, and those will rotate regularly so you will eventually be able to send all of the items to your friends.

Once your pirate ship is complete, you will be able to access the Pirates Barricade isles, located in the newly released Pirate Isle IV maps.

If you look in the store, you'll also notice that you can buy a second Pirate Ship frame for 10,000 coins, just in case you delete or sell yours (or just want a second ship) -- though it's not required to have two ships to access the Barricade Isles.

Hammer Hull – 5 Energy x2

The 5 stages of building your ship look like this:



1pirateship

4pirateship





Once you have built your the frame of your Pirate Ship you need 5 Ship Nails, 5 Planks, 5 Nautical Rope, 5 Sailcloth, and 5 Paint.

Complete to sail to new, mysterious islands!



You can also get items to build your Pirate Ship from your neighbors. Each neighbor will have 2 random items (eg. Ship Nails and Paint, Nautical Rope and Sailcloth, etc…) so just ask your friends for whichever items you need.



Congratulations! You can now sneak past the Pirate Barricade and visit the hidden pirate islands!



Once complete your Pirate Ship looks like this:

Treasure Isle Fire God Mountain Guide

What is the Fire God Mountain?



Fire God Mountain is a special set of maps that are in a scary volcano surrounded by lava, imps, and other exciting surprises. When you're in the volcano, the entire game changes. Instead of trying to clear the whole map in search of all of the treasure - each map has only ONE treasure. The objective is to find the treasure in the least amount of digs possible. Using the hot and cold mechanism is the way to know if you're close to the treasure. A leaderboard tracks your progression compared to your friends, and you get more coins if you find the treasure early. Once you have found the treasure, you progress to the next map. There are 14 levels of the volcano, each one deeper than the next.


How to get to Fire God Mountain



The very first thing that everyone always wants to know is how to actually get to the volcano. Where is the Fire God Mountain? To enter the Fire God Mountain, you first need to have 5 SPF, which are an item that you can get from friends or buy from the Store. To actually find the volcano, open up your travel map and go to the Tiki Isles. From there, you will see the volcano in the top middle of the overland map. Click on it, and if you have the required amount of SPF-3000 you will be allowed in.

How to get SPF-3000 in Treasure Isle



Everyone starts out with 5 SPF, which makes entering the volcano for the first time easy as can be. You only need to pay to enter the first time that you log in to the volcano. Once you beat all levels of the volcano, you will have to pay more SPF in order to gain access again.
Treasure Isle SPF-3000


SPF-3000 has the following prices in the store:

1 SPF-3000: 3 Treasure Cash
8 Pack - 30 Treasure Cash
32 Pack - 50 Treasure Cash

Fire God Mountain Rewards




In addition to getting oodles of coins for completing the Fire God Mountain, you can also receive other items. This includes collection items such as the Volcanologist set which awards a Volcano Flag, special decorations for your home island, Treasure Cash, a permanent increase to your maximum energy, mangoes, and other rare items. You also get a trophy to display on your home island showing your score when you complete the island.

Other Fire God Mountain Tips and Hints






  • If the game tells you the treasure is "Nearby" after you dig, that means it is 2 tiles away. If it says "Really Close", that means that it is 1 tile away.

  • Make sure to eat your fruit

  • When you're searching for the treasure, click once and if you don't see a hint, click in an area far away. Keep clicking in areas that are not close to each other until you get a hint and can better track down the treasure.

  • Ask for fruit whenever you can. Lava mangoes regenerate more energy in volcanoes, so they are a great help in progressing through the volcano.

  • Replay the maps over and over again for coins. You will earn 10,000 coins for each time you finish the volcano.

Treasure Isle Mysterious Eggs will hatch into a Phoenix?

There seems to be some new mystery eggs washing up on Treasure Isle many people dubbing these eggs " Lava Eggs" . Once you find the mysterious egg you can then either choose to store it or to place it. If you click on store it will get stored in your backpack. If you choose to place the egg it turns into a animation and clicking on it you are asked the question. Where can I take this to hatch?


Well definitely into Fire God Mountain. Once you reach the bottom of the mountain you can place the mystery egg and it will hatch. Treasure Isle is now asking the question what will the mystery egg hatch into.


We think it will be hatched into a phoenix or Firebird. Only a Firebird can come out of Fire God Mountain. 


Consider this passage from Wikipedia




The phoenix  is a mythical sacred firebird that can be found in the mythologies of the Persians, Greeks, Egyptians,Chinese, and (according to Sanchuniathon) Phoenicians.

A phoenix is a mythical bird that is a fire spirit with a colorful plumage and a tail of gold and scarlet (or purple, blue, and green according to some legends). It has a 500 to 1000 year life-cycle, near the end of which it builds itself a nest of twigs that then ignites; both nest and bird burn fiercely and are reduced to ashes, from which a new, young phoenix or phoenix egg arises, reborn anew to live again. The new phoenix is destined to live as long as its old self. In some stories, the new phoenix embalms the ashes of its old self in an egg made of myrrh and deposits it in the Egyptian city of Heliopolis (literally "sun-city" in Greek).



The bird is a fire spirit and the new lava eggs are definitely the phoenix that is going to rise out of the Ashes once Fire God Mountain erupts.



What do you think, are we wrong?
