Is this list correct? No geodes are included despite the description? 01:24, 22 September 2014 (UTC)

Yes, I personally tracked every single drop and this container is the only one that did not drop the items mentioned in this description - in this case - geodes. It is possible that I got a dud drop or something; I might check up on it in the future, but for now I'll slap on a bug tag, which I forgot to do initially. --Ventriloquist 12:34, 22 September 2014 (UTC)
It is correct. You probably got them added to an existing stack. You can check "Game Messages" in the chat log for the exact list of items when you open this. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 22:04, 31 January 2015 (UTC)
This was months ago, they fixed in the meantime, but I definitely did not receive geodes the first time I opened it, which was the first week of the track's release. --Ventriloquist 12:55, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
They could be a random drop with a high chance, though. I've been adding drops to PvP reward tracks lately, and one got 40 geodes added by someone, but I didn't got them. I double checked in the chat log to make sure. MithUser MithranArkanere Star.pngTalk 23:21, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
Well, Track chests are affected by MF, although I don't think it works on fixed rewards, such as geodes? I know that materials and rarity of weapons/armor/accessories are affected, though. --Ventriloquist 09:12, 5 February 2015 (UTC)
Hm... It could also have been a bug. Drops from these items are usually in "slots". The guaranteed piece of gear of at least masterwork rarity is in an slot that always has gear and has 100% drop rate. I suspect that scrolls of knowledge are in a separate slot too that may drop either the scroll or nothing. So each guaranteed drop would be on a separate slot, and the random stuff in other slots that may or may not drop nothing each. But if when they set the drop rate of one of the guaranteed slots and put something like 0.9 instead 1 for the drop rate by mistake, we would get people getting different drops.
