MapleStory 2 Guide: How To Hunt For And Capture Chests & What Rewards Can You Get From Chests

There is a lack of information on chests online so here's what I know after hunting around.

Spawn

- Golden chests spawn every 10 minutes form the hour in its spawn locations. There have been a few cases where the chest does not respawn on the 10-minute mark. I'm not sure if standing on the chest spawn spot blocks the chest from spawning.

- Wooden chests have a chance to spawn in one of its spawn locations. I have a few theories of when they spawn:

- Sometimes a lot of wooden chests will spawn, sometimes only a few.

- A gold chest will never spawn in place of a wooden and vice versa.

- I've seen wooden chests disappear in front of my eyes and I have no idea why. I have never seen a golden chest disappear unless it's refreshing it spawns at 10 minutes from the hour.

Location

- Wooden chests spawn in locations that are easily seen. This tends to be:

- Golden chests spawn in various locations, both in easily seen spots and in ridiculously hard spots that require you to go behind structures. Each map has an achievement to find all the golden chests (hence why gold chests always spawn every 10 minutes). There is a guide for this here.

Drops/Rewards

Common between wooden and golden chests:

- Wooden chests can drop voucher fragments for cosmetic related things (hairstyle, face, skin tone, gear dye, face cosmetic). These do not character bound (can be traded through the bank) and will not stack with character bound ones. This means if you have 4 characters bound fragments and 6 non-characters bound fragments, you cannot make full voucher. Out of 245 chests opened, I have found 23 voucher fragments (5 cosmetic, 2 faces, 2 hairstyles, 5 gear dye, 6 skin tone)

- Gold chests can drop mini-elixirs (25% healing). These have a fairly rare chance of dropping.

- Gold chests can also drop blue and green crystals.

Good farming locations for wooden chests

Crooked Canyon: The wooden chest behind Urza will always spawn there every 10 minutes making it an easy place to have a guaranteed wooden chest spawn. This chest will drop the voucher fragments and count towards the achievement to open wooden chests.

North Royal Road: This is a small map and has loads of wooden chest spawns. Chests seem to spawn in bulk at xx:00 and xx:05 every hour. There's a downtime from xx:30 to xx:59.

Revoldic Dam: A large map but circular making it easy to fly in a perfect loop hunting for chests. Chests seem to spawn in bulk at xx:30 and xx:40 every hour. There's a downtime from xx:00 to xx:29.

Other notes and tips

- Chests are not instanced, if someone loots a chest that you see, you won't be able to loot it.

- You can change channels to find more chests.

- You can use the command /nextchan and /prevchan to quickly change channels to farm chests. These are variations of the same command: /previouschannel, /lastchannel, /backchannel, /prevchan, /lastchan, /backchan, /nextchannel, /nextchan.
