Random Treasure ChestsFollow

So today I was running around near Camp Emerald Moss (lvl 10 camp outside of Gridania) and there was a blue treasure chest just sitting on the ground next to a river. I went up to it and interacted with it and it opened and gave me 1800 gil.

So do these treasure chests just spawn randomly in every area? Do they only spawn in certain spots? Have other people found these chests?

Sorry I didn't think to take a screenshot before opening it. It disappeared afterwards.

The chests seem to spawn randomly for you and your party while you are under "duty" during a guildleve. If you have multiple people with you on the leve, they can all interact with the chests as well. Nobody else can see them, so they're yours for the taking.

I've heard that the loot gets randomly given to a single party member, though I haven't personally confirmed this.

dunno if its a random person or the person who opens it... Its been a long time since i've seen one with gear in it... but all the ones I've opened distributed to me.

When partying I have found that all members receive equal gil and shard rewards, cannot confirm items.

Item is distributed randomly, I've opened 3 chests myself with items, and all three gone to my party members who were like 30 metres running behind me.

I can confirm this also. Was in a leve with 2 others. One member opened chest, and we all recieved 2k gil. No items in chest though, so don't know about that.

So far I've only seen these appear during battle leves. Most of the time we receive money from the treasure chests, but today we received money with an aldegoat horn.. so items must come them as well! In beta I received a pair of cotton breeches from a treasure chest, but I have yet to receive any armor from a treasure chest since release :(

Chests appear on any leve that takes place outside of town. This includes fishing, botany, mining in addition to the combat leves. I don't know if chest spawns are 100%, as they can spawn anywhere around the route, and some terrains are more difficult to search than others. I would guesstimate that there is probably a 50% chance of a chest appearing, either that, or perhaps a certain leve end-reward indicates the presence of a chest.
