Chests are containers of randomized loot that can be earned as quest rewards, Abyss rewards, or by exploring. They can also be purchased from the Store with Gems. Chests are an important method of obtaining resources to rebuild the Town. They supply a certain amount of Gold and have a chance to contain Gems. They can also contain useful equipment, including legendary artifacts. Chests are not considered items; they have their own inventory with a limit of 100 chests. They are usually directly opened when collected, but this can be turned off in the gameplay section of the settings menu.

  • You can sometimes receive targeted limited-time offers of discounted Chests on sale in the Store when you level up.
  • Chests underwent many major changes in update 1.5. These changes relieved the frustrations with the original gacha mechanics.
    • Each Chest had an associated timer that had to be waited out before receiving the contents of the Chest, with only one chest opening at a time. The wait times were 0000005S5STime, 0000001H1HTime, 0000006H6HTime, 0000012H12HTime, and 0000001D1DTime for Wooden, Silver, Golden, Elder, and Legendary Chests respectively. Silver Chests originally took 0000003H3HTime to open before being reduced during early access. The wait could only be skipped by spending Gems.
    • For each Job you completed, you were able to earn a mystery chest. It could have been a Wooden, Silver, Golden, or Elder Chest.
    • Chests had an initial carrying limit of 10, although this limit could be raised by 10 via exponential Gem purchases up to a maximum of 100. These Gems were refunded when the update rolled over.
