Is this chest really called a victory chest? I can't find anything to confirm it. --Lemming64 17:12, 10 June 2007 (UTC)

I've never seen anything to suggest "victory chest" as well, I'll post a thingie on Emily's talk about it. -Auron 11:00, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Is it fair to say that max Dwarven Axes almost never drop @ max damage now that we've got hard mode? --Tankity Tank 10:53, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

I don't think I've ever seen anything nonmax drop from this chest. Reqs have been all over the place, but I've never seen anything with less than max damage. -Auron 11:00, 14 August 2007 (UTC)

Dwarven Axe[edit]

I'd say the note about dwarven axes almost never dropping max needs adjusting since the release of gwen, gwen HM and the fact there's now a crafter for them. 18:47, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

Thinking about it the same should be done about runic blades since there are accounts of them dropping in GWEN, and on the runic blade its listed they drop in some dungeons? 18:49, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

tormented, destroyer, eotn craftable, zodiac, etc[edit]

According to this, only Factions endgame skins and zodiac weapons don't drop from here. I believe it also doesn't drop the following: Destroyer Weapons, EotN endgame weapons, NF endgame weapons, Proph endgame weapons, tormented weapons, asuran/norn/monument/dwarven eotn craftable weapons. Additionally, I'm pretty sure it does drop factions endgame weapons (such as exalted aegises) and zodiac weapons. Since I can't confirm 100%, I'll comment here first. —JediRogue 17:07, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

You are correct about most of that. This chest (and the Zaishen Chest will not drop a skin if no monster can drop it. This is true for all endgame and GWEN crafter skins. Canthan Elite Mission skins are the only item skins that the victory chest does not drop when monsters do. I'll add a note about this. It hasn't been updated in awhile.
However, I have never seen it drop an Exalted Aegis, as it is a canthan elite mission item. ~Shard (talk) 08:04, 27 June 2008 (UTC)
Well, but we'll have to rework this note again - at least i can't remember having acquired a Cristalline Sword as a monster drop... :P —ZerphatalkThe Improver 18:25, 28 June 2008 (UTC)
They drop in normal mode ascalon, albeit very rarely. I believe they can also drop in presearing, but I'm not too sure about that. It's really hard to tell if they've changed anything in the past three years. ~Shard (talk) 08:04, 1 July 2008 (UTC)
@ Shard and the comment about not dropping a skin that a monster can't--This may be true about the HoH chest but is Positivly untrue about the Z-chest simply because I have recently gottne a Voltiac Spear from the z-chest unless you know a monster that drops it I know that it is wielded by the Enchanted Spears in Gwen But ive never seen one drop :P ~The New Bp 19:41, 8 November 2008 (UTC)

Added later?[edit]

Was the chest added later or was it included from the very start?

There was always a chest, but it used to work differently. A team could only open it once (once per team, not once per player), and five random items would drop for random people. It was also located on the altar, not on the victory ledge as the current chest is. In fact, here's what it said when someone opened it. (I got really lucky). ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 05:02, 14 August 2008 (UTC)
Yeah baby thats my friggin half moon! --adrin User Adrin ecto sig.png 09:49, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
Man, you're so pucking lucky! >:( 'Overlord Frosty'

Max Dmg Weapons[edit]

This chest only drops gold items, but sometimes non-max damage and sometimes non-inscribable. As far in terms of what drops, it drops every skin there is in the game apart from Tormented Weapons, and End-game weapons, and yes it drops Exalted Aegis. --The preceding unsigned comment was added by User:Hero (talk).

I have never seen a non-max item drop, and I know for a fact that every gold weapon/offhand that drops is inscribable. ~Shard User Shard Sig Icon.png 20:32, 30 August 2008 (UTC)
Today a non-max dagger dropped, it was 7-16 damage, please modify the article 11:01, 3 March 2009 (UTC)
