Elemental Chest Frequency - logging


#1

All,

I know this is topic has been covered in various capacities but I am now tracking my chest completion to see if there is any rhyme or reason to the elemental chest frequency. I JUST completed my first cycle and wanted to post results. I am just starting the next cycle so I will likely only update one a week or so if the cycle holds true, but it could be less or more often if it does follow a truly random pattern/ A few assumptions:

  1. An elemental chest can occur on any of the 3 wanted chests - I have personally only had it come on the monster and hero chests, but have read that it can occur on the titan chest

  2. A titan chest fill is NOT a 5 day exercise for me/my alliance - so a titan chest fill for me may take longer than 5 days. We regularly beat 6* but can’t regularly beat 7*'s so it takes longer. And for tracking 1 I was in flight on a titan chest so I am only counting the newly spawned ones since my last elemental wanted mission.

I hope this is helpful and makes sense to everyone but if it doesn’t feel free to ask questions or make suggestions,

Hey thanks for the info sleeperZ.

A player in my Alliance posted a few days ago that they got a " golden" chest rather than the usual " purple" which turned up the to offer up some decent ascension items they needed!

Has anyone else received a “golden” chest???


#3

The colors of rare Elemental chests were recently changed to reflect the color of the element needed to fill the chest.

It’s working properly! :wink:


#4

Elemental chest with version 1.9 reflect the color you need.
So purple chest now is only for dark, blue chest for ice, and so on.

Your friend probably has a “simply” holy chest.


#5

I’m up to 27 chests spawned (assuming I am doing it right; it’s not an exact science as I have to log it in my phone notepad on the weekend and I forget sometimes exactly, haha) with <1hr until the 28th. This could be interesting - especially if it shows up today or tomorrow.

edit: sadly it didn’t show up yesterday, so up to 29. We shall see.


#6

Just updated for activity over the holiday break.


#7

Thanks for the info @slepperz96BT. I have clocked mine at about once every 20 days.


#8

No problem everyone. Though no one really is posting I will keep updating :slight_smile:

Thanks and welcome to the party :slight_smile:


#11

Just updated - had a very high one - almost 50 chest spawns! Maybe that is the upper boundary (50) if that indeed is the format.

I have to admit the pattern so far has been one in the 20’s followed by one in the 40’s…


#12

It feels like it’s been a long while since my last chest. I don’t feel like I’ve ever gotten one after only 20 something normal chests, but I’m going to take some notes after the next one and see. Good stuff here.


#13

The speculation in here is a floor and a ceiling for how quick and how long you have to wait - I’d say it’s probably based on chest fills not actual day duration as you can see I am pretty religiously filling chests. That said, my alliance member said he got one in 3 days after his last one…so who knows.


#14

Just updated for the latest data…hope people are finding this useful…


#15

Just for info. The other day I had consecutive dark elemental chests in the raid position. I had regular hero wanted chest between those


Elemental chest 15 days to pop
#16

I just updated for the ‘mission’ I had it on, M = Monster H = Hero T = Titan (yet to happen for me but I’ve seen captures showing it is possible).

@talisax - how far apart were the consecutive dark chests on the raid position? If you recall. Literally like one after the other meaning a day or so?


#17

12hrs apart. Finished one 12hr cool down and the next one was dark again


#18

Well, maybe this is a ‘trying to make something out of RNG nothingness’ scenario and human nature trying to make sense of it, maybe any chest at any time can be it. I’ll try a bit longer but this is helpful if it truly is just an RNG thing.


#19

Nice…I might get 1 elemental chest every couple of months if that.


#20

Posted an update. Seems like I am at least range bound for these, though I know others have posted faster (and slower) times.
