treasure caskets (ffxi)  

Contents [hide]


Treasure Caskets can be found by defeating monsters in the original areas of FFXI. Upon defeating a monster, there is a 10-percent chance the monster will drop either a blue or brown treasure casket. Blue caskets open automatically, whereas brown caskets must be skillfully unlocked.

The original FFXI areas are: West Ronfaure / East Ronfaure / La Theine Plateau / Valkurm Dunes / Jugner Forest / Batallia Downs / North Gustaberg / South Gustaberg / Konschtat Highlands / Pashhow Marshlands / Rolanberry Fields / Xarcabard / Beaucedine Glacier / West Sarutabaruta / East Sarutabaruta / Tahrongi Canyon / Buburimu Peninsula / Meriphataud Mountains / Sauromugue Champaign / Qufim Island / Behemoth's Dominion/ Ro'Maeve/ Cape Teriggan/ Eastern Altepa Desert/ Western Altepa Desert/ Valley of Sorrows/ Yuhtunga Jungle/ Yhoator Jungle/ The Sanctuary of Zi'tah/ Ru'Aun Gardens

Opening Caskets

When a monster drops a treasure casket, the casket can be opened by anyone in the party that killed the monster. The caskets despawn in they haven't been opened after 3 minutes.

Blue caskets open immediately upon inspecting them. Brown caskets must be opened using a specific combination:

  • The combination is between 10 and 99.
  • Players have 4 to 6 tries to unlock the casket.
  • One try = an attempt to guess the combination or examining the lock (asking for a hint).
  • After each failed attempt to guess the combination, a hint is given as to whether the actual combination is higher or lower than the number you tried.
  • Thieves can use tools to receive a free hint about the combination.

Treasure Types

Blue caskets contain an array of temporary items that can only be used in the areas they were acquired. Brown items contain normal items and equipment.
