Chests and how they work

Post by DUTCHMAN » Sat Apr 21, 2018 10:12 am

Topic.

To go a little further with it, The other night chest drops were amazing Willow and I were finding some amazing stuff. Last night Willow and I found next too nothing. So how do chests work in all maps, from regular dungeon to instances, Regular difficulty to Epic difficulty?

I am highly confused on how all this works.

Thanks

Every chest has a lvl. The higher the lvl the better the loot. More higher lvl chests spawn in harder areas.
But it's a vague thing still. Better to ask around for exact details :)

That's mostly what I was looking for. It seems inconsistent, like most of the time even epic chests are bleh, but that 1/100 times its amazing LAUGHING OUT LOUD LIKE A MORON.

High level chests don't guarantee a "good drop" it might be like 1 in 50 dropping an arty instead of 1 in 200 or something.

Copy and paste from discord for future ref

"Egg: black is 13
so with loot qual +1, then the red dragon gets black dragons loot qual

ah so the + jacks it up as if you had killed something more difficult/with a higher loot rating
so what happens when you kill a 15 with improved loot, nothing?
eggmceyeLast Friday at 1:09 PM
but at end of day, its still random - and in euo, just because it is loot qual 14 it is actually randomly 13 to 15 i think
so if u kill something with q=15 and your buff, makes it 16
so i wld have to test it - make sure it actually helps

which crashes the server

well as long as it makes arties more common
or adds on to the + of stat items etc
but the loot qual aura is very like, long game
not sure if worth wearing it
radius of auras: is .....7
i think it will take a bit of grinding before anyone thinks that the loot aura is worth it
unless it added a big amt to it , say 3 - which would help out early on but later on maybe do nothing
i dunno, im not convinced"
