Chests

Chests can give Mesos, Crystal Fragments, Rusted Keys (which you analyze in Tria), Mini-Elixirs, and Blue and Green crystals, and Voucher Fragments. Wooden Chests and Golden Chests seem to drop the exact same loot. One thing to note is that the daily guild mission where you have to open 10 wooden chests with 2 other guild members in your party and in the same map will give you the ability to see wooden chest locations on your minimap with a ping. When you have this guild mission, you may find it useful for farming wooden chests in North Royal Road before eventually finishing the guild mission.

Most notably, you can select the “friendly NPCs” option to show NPC’s on your minimap easily.

By default, you can also show the minimap increase the minimap size temporarily by holding down the Tab key. Minimap Legend
