No maps/ Chests on Para rune beetles??

Me and my guild have killed about a million para rune beetles and not one map or chest, Is anyone else having this issue?

    Only Mobs that normally have maps can have para chests.  The unique chest is from Kappas.

    I used to get maps off Rune Beetles before the 2019 T-Map update. I haven't hunted Rune Beetles in ages but I know they used to have maps.

    Out of all the lich' that i have killed during this event
    I only looted 1 treasure map from their corpse
    and it wasn't from a paragon

    this was during the first week or so on Atlantic
    and I killed more creatures on that shard
    than I normally do on Sonoma during this event

    Its actually easier to get the sea serpent and kraken chests
    than the other ones

    UO lists Rune Beetles as having maps.  UOGuide does not.

    I have not seen a map or chest on them.

    Yeah so I'm confused. I know I've gotten maps off of Rune Beetles in the past. I have gotten TONS of lich chests, of course lol. Finally got a few para skelly dragons chests last night. My guildie is trying to complete his para chest collection and we spend lots of times on the Rune Beetles.

    Beetlescape is the only place I have done luck hours. The beetles and mages are so thick on the coast that I rarely go to the kappa there or the mountain. 

    I played there long ago but I can't recall why, but it wasn't for maps. So, I can't say whether they had them in the past.

    But one of the websites says they have maps.

    actually those lists you've posted are the guardians that spawn when you dig a map!
    this is the list of map carrying monsters

    Yet from this thread in 2019, people insist that Rune Beetles used to carry maps and after the T-Map update, things that carried them didn't anymore.


    I know I used to get maps off Rune Beetles.

    LOL! Yep, that's what happens when you've been up 36 hours working. Thanks @Mariah

    So you are telling @Larisa that Rune Beetles never had a map?

    seems so, sorry :(  I have gotten chests from revenant lions, ladys of the snow, fan dancers and lesser hiryu.

    I will just say that they probably forgot to code them back in, because I know I used to get them off Rune Beetles.

    Not a big deal, now I can stop farming Rune Beetles and go back to Winter Spur were the drops are much faster! :)

    Ya'll rock!

    Correct. I used to trash them when farming bokutos. Not common at all though.
