What does the rank of treasure chests mean and how could you tell?

  1. I've seen so many people and the guides mention rank (number) chests to find certain items but i don't know how could you find these or how could you tell what rank are they.

  1. Yes, the blue treasure chests in grottoes give out treasure by rank. What that means is a specific ranked chest will only give out items listed for that rank. To find out what rank a treasure chest is you pretty much have to do trial and error and test its contents and compare them to the list. Open the following URL (you'll need to remove the spaces) and look at the bottom of the page to see what items are found in each rank. Ranks are I, H, G, F, E, D, C, B, A, and S, or if you prefer numbers they're 1 thru 10.

    These do not apply to treasure chests outside of grottoes. It is believed that other blue treasure chests also follow their own ranking system, but it has not been studied thoroughly as far as I know.

  1. You can determine the rank of a chest by its contents. Though you may need to get many items from it to tell which rank the chest is since there is overlap in what rank chests drop what, like with mini medals.

    Here is a place you can look up what each rank chest may contain:
