— In-game description
A Black Lion Chest is a container that, when used with a Black Lion Chest Key, yields four items, with a chance to contain a fifth item. If opened with a Golden Black Lion Chest Key, the fifth item is guaranteed.
Many items within are also available in the Gem Store, though some rare items are exclusive to the chest, and a good portion of the items are Account Bound. Those exclusive items can later be purchased from the Black Lion Statuettes. Players are able to view the items contained in a Black Lion Chest by right clicking on the Chest and selecting the Preview option. The items within usually change with a major release.
When activated, a Black Lion Chest window opens that allows the player to combine a chest and a key.
