Crystal chest: Misc



Up to date as of February 07, 2010

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape

The Crystal chest is the unofficial name of a treasure chest in Taverley that is famous for containing a Dragonstone, among other things. The chest is locked and can only be opened by a Crystal key. The crystal key is made up of a loop half of a key and the tooth half of a key you can acquire the crystal key by using them with each other. The Crystal key sells for more than most of the rewards, making it more monetarily satisfying to sell the key. Sadly when the key is used it disappears, so opening the chest is a gamble.

Attempting to open the chest without the crystal key yields the message, "This chest is securely locked shut."

Value analysis and Contents

The chest loot always includes an uncut dragonstone and will normally include another random reward, but not always. Below are the values of the chest's contents, based on current G.E. prices. Most times you have a 9 out of 16 chance to make a profit, or a 56.25% chance, however this can fluctuate due to the price of the crystal key. The frequencies below are based on a batch of 1750 keys. There are theories floating around about only being able to obtain Rune Platelegs if you are a male character, and Rune Plateskirts if you are female. Presumably the chance is equal to get either of them. These tests were done on a Male Character, so there were actually no Rune Plateskirts achieved.
