The Wooden Chest is an object used to indicate PvE loot drops of rare quality; it replaces the sparkles that appear for other drops from foes. Like those sparkles, it appears only to you and cannot be seen or looted by others. Unlike chests, they don't have an opening animation.
- The Steel Chest serves as the equivalent mechanic for exotic and ascended loot.
- In WvW and certain events, all drops of masterwork and lower quality appear as a Bag of Loot.
