Cartography
This article is about the Cartography skill. For a guide to leveling the skill, see Cartography/Training.

Cartography is a skill in which the player can explore the map of Melvor, uncovering hidden areas and secrets throughout their journey.

Skill Overview

The World Map of Melvor consists of a grid of 944 hexagonal map tiles (called Hexes). The map layout is the same for all players and all players start on (15, 16). The primary action for Cartography is Surveying map tiles in order to discover them.

Once a Hex has been fully discovered, the player may travel there. Some Hexes contain Points of Interest which will be revealed upon traveling to the tile. Visiting a Point of Interest will always provide a blurb of text explaining a bit about the location, and some Points of Interest will reward the player with resources upon the first visit.

The base interval for a Survey action is 5.00 seconds. It can be reduced through various boosts.

Map Mastery

When first uncovering the map, each hex will have a level between 1 and 5 that will determine how many times it must be surveyed in order to be fully discovered. Initially only point-of-interest tiles will let you survey to level 5. Once the map has been fully discovered, the maximum level for all hexes will increase to 5. Levelling a hex to 5 is referred to as "Mastering" it, and Mastering all 944 hexes is referred to as "Map Mastery".

Hex Level Total Surveys Difference
1 24 24
2 108 84
3 264 156
4 504 240
5 864 360

Mastery Unlocks

Once enough tiles have been mastered, the following bonuses will be unlocked:

Carthulu

Prior to fully revealing the map, there are just over 100 hexes that can be mastered. The higher mastery levels can only happen once the map is fully revealed, which is sufficient to get to at least Cartography Level 100 in most game modes. The map takes a total of 944*864=815,616 actions to fully master, for a total of 47 days, 4 hours, 48 minutes at the base time interval of 5.00 seconds, and will get you to over Cartography Level 120 once this is complete.

Undiscovered Hexes

These icons will appear on undiscovered Hexes if there is something to discover underneath.

Icon Description
! icon
Denotes the location of an undiscovered Archaeology Dig Site. Locations for these dig sites can be learned with unique items in Archaeology.
? icon
Denotes an undiscovered Point of Interest (POI). Discovering a POI will reveal more of the lore, and may earn you a reward.
A cat
If "Toggle Cat" is enabled in Settings, then this icon will denote a hidden Archaeology Dig Site. It will display only when you locate a required Dig Site item in Archaeology (One example being the Torn Chart).

Points of Interest

These are the types of Points of Interest (POIs) that can be discovered underneath a Hex.

Icon Description
Dig Site
An Archaeology Dig Site. Use Cartography to create, upgrade or refine maps for dig sites. Use Archaeology to excavate dig sites you have discovered.
Standard Point of Interest
A standard Point of Interest (POI). If you select the tile you can read the lore associated with the POI to learn more.
Active point of interest
Provides powerful modifiers, but these will only be a when you are standing on the Hex to become active.
Port
Provides free travel between ports. The ports are automatically used when two or more ports are discovered, and can help reduce travel expense Coins.svg  when traveling long distances.

Surveying

When you embark on a journey to explore a hex in Melvor Idle, your visibility extends to the tiles closest to you, with the tiles near the edge marking the limit of your sight. Over time, both your visible range and survey range will expand. Initially, you can only survey a hex that is adjacent to your starting tile.

There are two methods to survey tiles:

  • Survey: This option allows you to queue one or more tiles for surveying. There's no limit to the number of tiles you can queue, but initially, you can only queue up to the six tiles surrounding your starting hex. Some tiles cannot be surveyed until certain conditions are met.
  • Auto Survey: In idle mode, this feature enables automatic surveying of the entire map. Auto Survey is primarily designed for later in the game because early on many of the tiles have requirements that must be met before they can be surveyed.

Travelling

Travelling around the map costs Coins.svg  and the total for every path taken is shown before you move to a new Hex. As the game progresses, you will find ways to reduce travel costs, but early in the game these costs can seem quite high. Each Hex has a different base cost, and you can see the cost of each tile on this map.

In the map, the colors represent the base Coins.svg  costs associated with each tile.

Heat map colors for travel costs
Map Color Travel Costs (per Hex)
Blue Up to Coins.svg 5,000
Green Coins.svg 5,000 to Coins.svg 25,000
Red Coins.svg 25,000 to Coins.svg 1,500,000
Yellow Coins.svg 1,500,000 upwards

Travel Events

Every time you travel, there is a random chance that a unique event will occur. The odds of these events occurring can be increased with certain shop-purchases. The travel events will often result in temporary boosts that last until you next travel, and eventually you might obtain a very rare item (hint!).

There is no way to disable travel events, and there is also a chance that travel events will repeat as time progresses given the limited number of events that can be discovered.

Creating Maps

In addition to surveying, Cartography can help create the Dig Site Maps used in Archaeology. Creating a map has three stages:

  1. Create paper: Convert any type of Logs into Paper. Higher tier logs will produce more paper. Turning logs into paper has a base interval of 5.00 seconds, which can be reduced by bonuses that affect non-combat skill intervals and can also be affected by chance to double items or chance to preserve resources. You can also earn paper by completing tasks and discovering certain sites in Cartography.
  2. Update maps: Select a dig site and create a map in one of the map slots for that dig site. If they already have a map for the selected slot, map creation actions will instead make progress on upgrading the map towards the next tier. All new maps, except the first map you receive, will be created at the Poor tier. Creating and upgrading maps costs paper and has a base interval of 5.00 seconds. The upgrade interval can be reduced through bonuses, and in addition you can increase the chance of preserving resources. Regardless of tier, every map for a dig site will always discover the same items, but with differing chances of success. Upgrading maps is optional, but recommended as it will greatly reduce time taken excavating sites for rare items. You will only gain the benefit of upgrading once the map has changed to the next tier, and once you have reached the final tier other maps in this site will also be upgraded unless you stop the action manually.
  3. Refine maps: Select a map and select one or more refinements. At each refinement, you are given a choice of refinement will permanently upgrade that map. Each refinement happens instantly, but the Coins.svg  costs increase exponentially with each refinement. Refinements will be lost once the map has been exhausted through Archaeology actions. Refining maps is optional, but recommended as it will help reduce time taken excavating sites for rare items.

Shop Upgrades

The shop contains several upgrades that can be purchased to provide permanent boosts to Cartography. These fall into two categories:

Ship Upgrades

Ship upgrades require a specific Cartography level in addition to various items in order to purchase.

Enhancements

Enhancements require the player to discover specific points of interest first, at which point they can be purchased by spending the required amount of GP.
