Yeah I found 2 last night while running my leves. They were your standard blue chests with a bit of gil in them.

yep, I've gotten a couple. All standard blue. I'm wondering if solo they are always blue, groups are the next tier, and faction leves are the best ones. Only a guess.

I ran into 2 blue chests last night while doing 2 different leves.
It's definitely not broken.

Ran across a Blue/Silver chest last night. Contained about 6k gil and a radiant wind moraine that sorted to random party members loot. This was one a leve that had 3 links. We encountered two other "normal" chests as well each giving on average 2-3k gil and those leves had zero links.

I just did 3 leves and got 2.5 gil, 2.5 gil and leather shoes (ochre) and like 3k gil and a cluster.

All blue chests.


My first two chests since the first one I found that gave me an item.

Seen all 3 in 2 sets of leves today, all solo all but the R20 camp leves done on 5 star. Star count didn't seem to matter for what color popped where.

Two Gold chests, one was 10k~ one was 5k and a wind cluster (two people in the party)

One blue chest, 5k and one fire and one ice crystals (5 people in party)

Lots of regular ones for the normal amounts of 2-3k gil. ( solo and various party sizes)

These are all R30 leves.

Edit :

Two more gold chests, one was 6k (eight people in the party) alone I found one with a cluster in it.

Five more blue chests, all averaging 4k, no items

Nope. Solo leves I've found black (or blue? first tier "normal" chests, I see black) and also one tier up of the new chests in the game...the tier up gave me a crappier amount of gil but I was only doing Black Brush leves.

Helped one of my buddies do a R40 Faction Leve at Broken Water, and when we killed the last mob, out popped this HUMONGOUS Silver chest...to be honest, it looked more like a big slab with a lid on top, but anyway...it gave 6k Gil and a Ripped Haub to boot ^^

Found a gold box on a r20 gathering leve. Gave over 7K gill.

When i first saw the pics of different boxes I thought that it might be that one has gil, one has gill + equipment and one has gil + clusters/morraines, but now I am guessing that it merely refers to the quanity of gil that can be obtained (i.e. the higher level boxes give more gil).

There doesn't seem to be a way to predict wether or not a chest will give extra items, despite the theories on party members, dificulty star of quest or amount of leves linked.

Just wanted to see what happens if I quoted your color blindness :P. But I honestly don't think I'm color blind and some people are saying that tier one chests are blue, I see black, and I see tier two chests as blue and white? and tier 3 chests are gold and brown-ish? should I just stop living in denial and get some help?? Smiley: cry

Came across a black chest w/ brown trim during a R30 leve solo, only gave me 1500 gil. :(

Duo-ed the other day during R30 leves and came across blue chest w/ silver trim, which gave between 3000~5000 gils.

I got all 3 grades of chest pretty frequently since the patch went live. The blue/silver and red/gold ones had more gil than the brown/black ones, but I haven't had any really good rewards (equipment) in a while. Algoat horn and raptor talon yesterday, though.
