To help explain how Chests work in The Elder Scrolls Blades, we’ve put together this The Elder Scrolls Blades Chests Guide. We’ll take a look at how to get Chests in Blades, how to open them instantly, and how to increase the number of Chests which you can carry at any time.

The Elder Scrolls Blades Chests

Chests are an important feature in The Elder Scrolls Blades. Not only are they going to be where you’ll get the best of the game’s loot, but they also contain valuable resources that you can use to upgrade your Town. Unfortunately, Chests don’t really work in the same way they used to, as you’ll need to open them after collecting them into your inventory. Let’s take a look at how they work.

How to Get Free Chests in The Elder Scrolls Blades

Chests aren’t all that difficult to find in The Elder Scrolls Blades. They are scattered along the main path of each mission, and are rewarded for completing certain missions and challenges. The best ways to get Chests in The Elder Scrolls Blades is to do Jobs, as there will be new Chests each time.

The Elder Scrolls Blades Chest Rarity

There are a few different types of Chests that you can find in The Elder Scrolls Blades. Each one will take a different amount of time to open, though rarer ones will give better loot when they do. Let’s take a look at the different rarity types in The Elder Scrolls Blades.

  • Wooden Chest - 5s to open
  • Silver Chest - 3 hours to open
  • Gold Chest - 6 hours to open

The Elder Scrolls Blades Mystery Chest

There’s another type of Chest which you can get in The Elder Scrolls Blades: The Mystery Chest. Mystery Chests are offered at the Quest screen, and you’ll receive any of the Chests listed above on completion. In our experience, Mystery Chests are always Silver or higher.

How to Open Chests in The Elder Scrolls Blades

To open the Chests in The Elder Scrolls Blades, you need to tap on the Chest icon in the top left of the screen. You can then choose which Chest you wish to open, though you can only open one at a time. It stands to reason then, that you should open all of the Wooden Chests first, as they take mere seconds.

You Can Use Gems to Open Chests Instantly

You don’t always have to wait for every Chest to open, as you can spend Gems to unlock them instantly. It’ll take 75 Gems to immediately open Gold Chests, and this is not recommended unless you’re regularly spending money on Gems. It’s worth waiting, and doing missions as you do so.

How to Increase Maximum Chest Limit in The Elder Scrolls Blades

Early on, you’ll run into the issue of Chest storage space. You can only hold 10 chests at a time, until you upgrade your stash that is. To do so, head to the Chest menu and then click the ‘/10’ listing in the top middle of the screen. You’ll need to spend Gems to upgrade your Chest storage, and you’ll want to do it before heading into missions.

How to Get Gold Chests Easily in The Elder Scrolls Blades

If you’re looking to get Gold Chests in The Elder Scrolls Blades, you’ll want to check the Quest tab. Some Quests will award Gold Chests on completion, and weekly Jobs are guaranteed to.
