— In-game description

Black Lion Chest window

A Black Lion Chest is a consumable that, when used with a Black Lion Chest Key, yields three items. Many items within are also available in the Gem Store, though some rare items are exclusive to the chest. Most items are account bound.

When activated, a Black Lion Chest window opens which allows to combine chests and keys to draw items.


Each Black Lion Chest contains 2 randomly selected items from the below list, as well as one randomly selected booster. It is possible to receive two of the same item, including two stacks of the same item, if that item drops in stacks of more than one.
