|Also known as||Chests|
|Function||Unlocking new cosmetic items.|
|Used in||Main Lobby|
Treasure Chests are a Cosmetic on Mineplex and were added on September 19th, 2014. When opened, players receive various items, including other Chests, Game Amplifiers, Rune Amplifiers, Carl's Spinner Tickets, Clan Banner Access, Treasure Shards, Cosmetics, premium rank upgrades and Power Play Club Subscribtions. Some are awarded exclusively during events.
To open a Treasure Chest, players must find a Stone Brick pedestal, all (four) of which are located next to the spawn of the lobby area. Treasure Chests were formerly able to be opened anywhere in the central lobby area. On each pedestal is a chest. After clicking on the chest, a menu will appear on the screen, prompting players to activate or buy a chest. If a chest is activated, players are bordered in the pedestal; any attempt to move out of the area will result in a teleportation back to the center, and other players that go too close to the area are flung back.
Eight chests will slowly appear around in a circle, either 4, 2 (for Minestrike chests) or 1 of which the player is able to choose from. Using the RMB on a chest will cause a reward to pop out, accompanied by a tag elaborating on what the reward is. Different qualities and quantities of items are given a rarity rating in-game; the higher the rarity, the less often the item will appear in a chest. Items rare and above are displayed in the chat with the format "
<player> has found a(n)
<item>!". After four chests have been selected, the pedestal is cleared, letting other players open their chests.
|Common||gray and white||
|Uncommon||dark aqua and aqua|
|Rare||dark purple and
|Legendary||dark green and green||
|Mythical||dark red and red|
Although eight chests appear and the player can only select four, the rewards that the player receives are already predetermined once the player chooses a chest to open, making chest selection purely cosmetic and for the enjoyment of players. This means that in case the player disconnects before opening all of their chests, the items that they would have received are automatically added to their inventory.
Prior to an update, Treasure Chests were only accessible through the player's Cosmetic Menu. In addition, Treasure Keys were needed to open chests,
which could be found in Game Loot or bought for 1000 Coins. A reason for the update was because players with ranks had too many Treasure Keys and too little Treasure Chests, while normal players had the opposite scenario.
There are different tiers and types of Treasure Chests, with each successive tier containing a higher quality and quantity of loot. However, a better chest only increases the odds of a better reward; it does not guarantee one. An Old Chest may contain legendary loot, just as a Mythical Chest may hold common loot.
