Players of any level can open a chest, but can be interrupted if attacked. Some of the chests can spawn after finishing specific events such meta events. Event chests can be autolooted with Advanced Logistics mastery when the chest will spawn. Some chests can also require keys to be opened.

Whenever killing a creature yields loot of at least rare quality, a small Wooden Chest appears on the ground instead of the sparkling creature's body.

Bonus chests[edit]

Opened Bonus Chest

After completing certain World boss events, characters level 40 and above will receive a bonus chest, alternatively called bouncy chest,[1][2] with an item of rare or exotic quality, in addition to being able to loot a boss chest. These items will appear with a chest icon in the lower-right portion of your screen. For each event, your account can only receive one such bonus each day. The UI will display up to three unclaimed chests, including the ones from map completion or the daily. If a fourth bonus chest is earned while the first three float in the UI, it will appear after you claim the items from any of the first three. Any additional bonus chests beyond the fourth one will be automatically accepted into your inventory when you change map or exit the game. Only 20 bonus chests can be in the queue; if a 21st chest enters the queue, chest contents will automatically enter your inventory.

Event rewards[edit]

Since the release of Heart of Thorns, most events also have bonus Event Rewards bouncy chest with normal rewards depending on the zone.
