I passed one of these chest just outside a camp after doing a few leves and if it wasn't for the exclamation icon and people around i never would've checked it.There was 2 head pieces inside i think the was the reward for the leves.I've avoided these chest like the plague at least five times over the past few days in the field. Grandia and FF gave me Mimic fear when it come to treasure chest. The question is, is these chest part of the game and if i see them are they mine?

If you can see them they are yours and I have yet to get a mimic.

I found a few while wandering around, popped them and they gave a few hundred gil each.

Other people seemed to be ignoring them, so I'm not sure if they pop mimics or not. But I didn't get any.

I guess they're just part of the game?

The reason that other people are ignoring them is because they can't see them. Treasure chests only pop up when you are doing a leve and it is specific to you. Only the person in the leve can see, open and recieve the items/gil from a chest. If you don't open it the whatever reward is inside is lost.

As far as I can see there is no correlation between which leve you are doing and the chance of the chest. And just because you have found a chest doing a certai leve does not mean that the next time you do it you will find one. I have found chests doing Battle and Fieldcraft Leves. But I have found that the gil reward you get from the chest is higher when doing higher level leves.

Also if you are in a party doing a leve and one person opens a chest, then everyone in the party recieves the gil.

Thanks i wondered why people would walk right by them too.The more advance video games get the less information is in the booklet.Bonus chest should be written somewhere in a game where any mob can wipe the floor with you.

I had no idea this was the case, and I am going to venture to guess that not many do.

This sounds like something that should be included on the wiki, or another reference here on the website.

I've gotten chests outside leves before, so it isn't just that.
