1. Introduction
**********************************************************************
I am MysticWeirdo also known by my real name Warren Grieder.

The purpose of this guide is to list the location of all of the chests
required to obtain Sheena's "Treasure Hunter" title.  There are a 
total of 270 chests scattered through the various dungeons in this 
game that count towards this total.  One of the two Katz at the top of
the wooden stairs to the right of the entrance to the Katz Island 
village in the northwest corner of Sylverant awards the title to 
Sheena after all the chests have been found.  Prior to that if you 
talk to this Katz using Sheena as the avatar he'll tell you the 
percentage of the chests that you've found so far.

games. They offer two services that may be of use in obtaining the 
title. When paying for their services you can ensure that the mission
is successful by giving them extra Gald, I usually use 10000 which
can be easily recovered by fighting the Dragon in the Earth Temple.

One is the missed items service. When successful this service will 
tell you how many chests you've missing in the dungeons you been to in 
the region that Katz shop covers.  

WARNING: the Katz counts are not always accurate so don't rely on 
them. Some examples I've observed:

The Palmacosta Katz count for the Palmacosta Ranch is one greater than 
the actual number of chests so if they're reporting 1 missing you've 
found them all. 

The count in Flanoir is one less than it should have been after 
deliberately missing every chest in the Temple of Lighting and the 
Tethe'alla Base, so one of those dungeons in undercounted.

The count in Triat is quite erratic:  When running an item recovery in 
Triet the count dropped from 45 to 31 although only 13 chests were 
recovered. Picking up 1 chest in the Temple of Martel, and 6 chests in
the Iselia Ranch caused the count to drop from 45 to 28.

There appears to be undercount in Asgard on disk 2.

The some of the Katz appear to alter their missing item coverage areas 
between Disk 1 and Disk 2.  Listing for both disks follow.

The other service offered by the Katz is item recovery. I've disproved 
my previous theory that a location needed to be completely destroyed 
for the Katz to recover items from them, they'll recover from some 
partially destroy locations and some chests from one location that 
you're still able to get to. Except for the Asgard Ranch, which the 
Katz will recover from on your return to Sylverant, these recovery 
services become available at the beginning of disk 2.

Triet Katz:
----------
Triet Ruins: all chests

Sylverant Base: the four chests that can be obtained in the first 
mission there even though you can still get to them.

Izoold Katz:
------------
Palmacosta Ranch: All chests except 2 of the 3 Life Bottles and the
Panacea Bottle. An Apple Gel is recovered instead of one of these.

Island Human Ranch: All chests except the Varja and the Holy Staff.

Asgard Katz:
-----------
Thoda Geyser: All chests
Asgard Ranch: All chests

Luin Katz:
---------
Tower of Mana: All chests except for the Lunar Guard, an Amulet is
received in its place.

Areas with non recoverable, permanently missable chests:
2 chests in Palmacosta Ranch cannot be recovered.
2 chests in the Island Human Ranch cannot be recovered.
1 chest in the Earth Temple
All chests in the Tethe'alla Base
2 chests in the Sylverant base 
All chests Tower of Salvation
