While finding and obtaining the various treasures in Fire Emblem: Awakening is not necessary to complete the game, the weapons and items that they award you can really help you on your quest.
It’s no easy task, though, as you’ll be competing with an enemy, Ruffians that will try to make off with them at every available opportunity. This guide will tell you where you can find these treasures, how you can beat the Ruffians to them, and some hidden treasures you can get from sources other than chests.
Without further ado, we present the Fire Emblem Awakening Treasure Guide! We’ll start off with the Paralogues (side quests).
Fire Emblem Awakening Treasure Locations
Paralogue 1: Sickle to Sword
There are two chests on this map towards the upper right. One of them contains a Rescue Staff and the other contains a Killer Lance. One of these will be snagged by a Ruffian who will try to make off with it to the south.
Move your party along the bottom of the map from right to left and intercept him, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get in his way. Collect the treasures and move on.
Paralogue 2: The Secret Seller
There is only one treasure to be obtained from this map, a Physic Staff. You can get this by finding the merchant in the upper right part of the map. You can help her out and visit the village to get the treasure.
Paralogue 3: A Strangled Peace
There are no chests on this map, but there is a village that you can visit for a treasure (Blessed Bowl). Try to save the escaping villagers, if you can rescue one they reward you with a Seraph Robe and Log.
Paralogue 4: Anna the Merchant
There is a total of four chests on this map. One is on the left, one to the upper left, and two to the upper right. A ruffian will target these last two and be gone within four turns so I recommend you take about three people and charge up the right side so you can intercept.
Gaius will be useful for this group since you can use him to open doors and chests. These two chests contain a Mend and Arms Scroll, the one on the left contains large Bullion and the one to the upper left has the Killing Edge.
Paralogue 5: Scion of Legend
In this map you need to rescue three villagers in order to get three treasures. The villager at the top will net you an elixir, the villager on the lower-right will give you a Speed Tonic and the last one on the lower left will get you some Spirit Dust.
That’s it for the Paralogues! Now the story chapters in which you can get some treasures are as follows:
Chapter 6: Foreseer
On this map there is a chest on the upper middle. However, you don’t need to bring keys, as you can recruit Gaius on this map and he is a thief who can open locked doors and chests by himself. The chest contains a Secret Book.
Chapter 8: Grimleal
No chests on this map, but there are three villages you can visit to get the following rewards; Rescue, Master Seal, Second Seal. You shouldn’t have any problems with this one. No Ruffians.
Chapter 10: Renewal
This chapter is a bit tricky. There’s four treasures, but they’re all in the hands of four Ruffians who are going to try and hightail it off the map towards the top. Take your fastest followers (that means those with horses) and run them down to get a Master Seal, Seraph Robe, Wyrmslayer and medium Bullion.
Chapter 11: Mad King Gangrel
There are two chests on this map, one of which is being contested by a Ruffian. Intercept him as he tries to make for the chest on the left (which contains large Bullion). Then collect from the treasure chest to the right for a Goddess Icon. Now you can focus on the Boss.
Chapter 14: Flames on the Blue
Three chests on this map. Take the ones on the right first to obtain a medium Bullion and Recover Staff. Now you can take your time and head towards the chest on the bottom. There are no Ruffians to race here, so you can be as relaxed as you like. The last chest contains a Second Seal.
Finally there is one Xenologue that contains some treasures:
Xenologue 1: Champions of Yore 1
This is the first DLC map for Fire Emblem: Awakening and while there are no chests on the map you can visit two villages for a treasure each. Keep in mind that these treasures will be randomized so you might get anything. There are no Ruffians to compete with.
