The Sims Freeplay- Raiders of the Lost Artifacts Quest

LEVEL UNLOCKS: 10 TIME LIMIT: 2 days PRIZE: treasure chest

Once you complete the mysterious island quest this quest will begin, this quest will show you how to complete monuments on the island. If you complete this in the 2 day time limit you will receive a treasure chest full of Artifacts, LP, XP and more! You can still complete this quest once the time limit is up but you won’t get the treasure chest prize
How long does this quest take to complete?


Times may vary depending on the star rating the item has.

  • Go to the mysterious island (click on the bridge)


  • Tap on a monument (symbols are rock, water, air and fire)



  • Leftovers from a fridge- 18 seconds
  • Search for artifacts in the garbage- 8 minutes 30 seconds (you need to kick over the garbage first to get this option)
  • Find the third artifact (you get them at random by baking, gardening and using objects, you can see if you get one because a material will appear above your sims head) TIP: just plant peppers until you find it! or have a shower- you just need to do something quick!


  • Upgrade the riches of terra to level 1 (first monument-rock, click on it and click upgrade now)



Once you upgrade all 4 monuments to level 25 you unlock the volcano! Find out more in my Mysterious Island Monuments post

Time Limited Prize: Treasure Chest

Is the prize worth it? Yes, the treasure chest contains the items as shown in the image below and also 3,000XP!

The treasure chest location is on the mysterious island in the sea as shown in the image below:

You can only collect the chest once

The next quest is Need for Steed which unlocks horses! You will need to build the promotions r us store to complete this quest so start building it now!


please read before asking

I have missed this quest! Why can’t I start it yet?
You cannot miss main quests they have to be completed in order. You need to complete all previous quests (list can be found here) including the mysterious island quest and reach level 10 before you can start this quest

Can I complete this quest even though I have passed level 10?
Yes, you just need to complete all previous quests then this quest will start automatically

How do I visit the island?
Click on the mysterious island bridge, this will take you to the island

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

Why do blue footprints appear when I try to use an item?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

I cannot find the third artifact, where do you find them?
You get them randomly by baking, gardening and using objects, I cannot tell you where to find them as any action can give you one. Try planting peppers or any other action that takes seconds to try and get it quickly

How long does it take to upgrade the riches of terra?
Go to the island and click on it and select upgrade and it will complete straightaway

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
A treasure chest

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?
This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

Have you posted about monuments yet?
Yes, it took me a long time but I have finally finished my monument post, click here to read it

My game is stuck on level 10, why is this?
Once you reach level 10 your game needs to download additional content, this link explains what it is but it doesn’t say how to do it, I’m guessing your game should do it automatically. If you still can’t progress you may need to contact the makers to see if they can fix this for you

The next quest is Need for Steed which unlocks horses! You will need to build the promotions r us store to complete this quest so start building it now!

  1. Woah, ok weird thing just happened…So when I got the chest, I opened it and got all the stuff inside. But today, I went to the mysterious island, saw the chest, clicked it and got more
    LP and XP and Simeloeons! Was it a glitch? Cuz I read that the chest is a one time thing only.

  2. Hi! How’s your progress with your monuments? I really wanna know if the volcano has anything interesting in it. But these things take forever to build, I am already level 40++ and I haven’t even reached level 10 on any of them. 😥

    • Really slow! They take so long to upgrade! I have been told that the volcano isn’t interesting though, it is just another daily simoleon/XP revenue when you reach level 25 in all monuments like houses and businesses

  3. I can’t find the third artifact! I’ve had a shower, done baking, gardening, gona to work, cleared the trash … Nothing seems to be working.

  4. I am at level 51, I have completed all the quests but I cannot build any of the monuments except the Riches of Terra which is at level 70. All of the other monuments are still locked. How is this possible?

  5. I never got this quest in my game. Does completing this quest and reaching the appropriate level automatically unlock the other three monuments?

  6. I just wanted to say this helped me finish the quest so much faster than I normally would! Thank you!
