Lesser Arcane Chests are chests found in the Horn of Maguuma. Lesser Arcane Treasures mastery is required to be able to interact with this chest. To open it you will need to press the Channel skill 3 times (or only once, if Wayfinder Mastery is completed) before Aquatic Ruins Chest Disabled.png Time Running Out effect runs out of time. It is not required to press this skill in a row.

  • Most of the chests have an entirely random chance to spawn, much like ore nodes. Similarly, there are a few permanent locations, such as the two on the lower ring by the Dagda's Perception POI.
  • A maximum of 100 chests can be opened per day per account. This number is shared between all three maps.
