From Me:

I created this walk through to show everyone how to get through the missions with tombs. I didn't make this for people to ask me how to fix their technical difficulties. My game has NO glitches which means all the missions have worked fine for me, and everything was where and how it was supposed to be. PLEASE stop asking me how to fix these issues with your game.

Market Caves Part 2/Dong Huo Treasure Trove

Mission: Convince the merchant to let you explore the tomb below his shop. Enter Dong Huo's treasure trove and collect his treasure.

Stand on the floor switch in the front of the marketplace to activate the stairs.

Examine the wall to open the hidden door. Collect the treasures. Read the plaque on the wall.

Go through this hall.

Insert the keystone into the slot.

Go down the stairs.

Read the plaque on the wall if you want to.

Steam trap here. Disable or attempt to cross it.

Now we have this monster of a room... You will need to find 4 crescent keystones to get through it. All are guarded by many poison dart traps. Remember that just about anywhere you can walk is booby-trapped. I will show you where the traps are, so hopefully you can guide your sim to walk around them if possible.

Disarm or attempt to cross these traps.

Trap here.

Dart traps will almost always put you to sleep for a short time. Your sim will have a hard time remaining in a good mood in this tomb.

Grab the keystone. If your sim ever needs to take care of a few needs, this room has a toilet and some comfy beds.

Disarm this wall trap.

Examine the hole in the floor.

There isn't much you can do in this room. You w

Floor trap there.

And there.

And there.

And here...

Examine the wall to open the door.

Collect the treasures. Stand on the floor switch.

This opens the hidden door.

Go back around and pick up the keystone.

This treasure is guarded by a hidden electric trap. You don't have to get it if you don't want to...

Go through the door and inspect the wall.

Explore the dive pool to get the keystone.

Attempt to cross or disarm the traps behind me.

Examine the hole to disarm the traps.

Lots of traps in this room.

Grab the treasure.

Examine the hole in the wall.

Go through the door here.

Collect the treasures and the keystone by clicking on the displays.

Now put the 4 keystones into the slots to activate the floor switches.

Each of the floor switches turns off a trap in the hall.

Pull the statues in front of the red one out so you can push the red statue onto the floor switch.

It unlocks the door.

Yay! You finished the adventure! Go collect all the treasure in each of the rooms and report in to the local.


  1. I got the dong huo keystone from the merchant caves, but when i go to insert the keystone, it says i dont have it... but i checked my inventory and its there... did u have any problems like this? or do u have any insight on what i cud do ?

  2. post your issue on the world adventures forum. I can't help with technical problems.

  3. Thank U very much!!!! I made it! It was very thankfull.

  4. Where do you pull the pushable statues after you unlock the secret door behind the chairs?

  5. you missed one hidden door.
    in picture 326, lower right corner, on the shortest wall (2-tiles long)

  6. Also there is hole behind the throne chair in the last room, it opens up a door inside the curtains

  7. @Niamh: I noticed that too. Just deliver the keystone you already have and it will be replaced with the correct keystone. The names of both are similar, if not identical, which is indeed confusing. The shape is different though :)

  8. I cannot for the life of me find all four crescent key stones. I know I can just buy a skeleton key stone, but gosh darn it, I want to get all four. There may be treasure I'm missing (I'm greedy like that).
    I can find:
    - the one in the bedroom
    - the one in the lots and lots of treasure room (three displays worth)
    - the one in the hidden room in the pillar-divided room
    Where's the fourth?!? Any help would be much appreciated.

  9. I found this site to be most helpful.. Thanks for a wonderful site. Yeah!!!! As for the fourth key, I had 2 sims do the mission at the same time to get it done faster and so one could rest while the other explored and they could keep each other company,lol.Most of the time they worked together. It worked out perfectly. I made sure the sim that actually received the mission got all the good stuff though. Most like the key is/was in the dive well.My question, is what does the hole behind the chair in the next to the last room open?

    Note: Do not attempt to do mission with more than one sim if you are not use to doing so.This could cause delay or even the death of your Sims.

  10. I finally got into the final room with rooms of treasures. Then I inspected the switch at the back of the chairs. A hidden door opened and I got another treasure inside. But there were 2 movable statuses. Anyone have any idea if any placing of the statuses will lead to more treasures or something?

  11. thanks, helps alot

  12. You all know there are cheats right? Press control, shift, c. then type in testingcheatsenabled true. You can teleport without having t deal with all the booby traps.

  13. Re: the 4 movable statues. You move the 2 loose grey statues in the hidden room behind the throne into place. The other 2 statues come from over by the red statue that gave you access to the throne room. You have to push both of them right through the throne room to trigger the hidden switch. Just doing it now but my sim needs sleep so haven't finished pushing them yet!

    1. That does not work. It is impossible to push the 2 statues through the door. They do not fit.

  14. Glad I am reading this before doing, as I will finish it next time I visit. Thanks

  15. Where to find the keystone in the hall picture number 4?
