Loot Chests appear in various locations in the map. They have tiers ranging from tier I to tier IV which indicate the quality of the chest. Loot chests contain various types of items in them, including emeralds, common equipment, unidentified weapons, unidentified armor, potions, crafting materials and even accessories that are exclusive to tier III and IV chests. As a general rule, the more difficult it is to get to a loot chest, the higher tier it is and more valuable the loot inside shall be. When loot chests are left untouched for longer amounts of time, the better the loot will be.
NOTE: Loot Bonus and Loot Quality do NOT affect the rewards received at the end of a Raid.
Unique items are the second-most common type of items. These items have increased stats compared to Normal items and can be worth more when trading with other players. Unique items can vary, and there are many different variations of the same standard item. Finding the one you want can be hard, so trading with others is a key element in obtaining the item you desire. Unique items can be identified by their yellow item tag and the words "Unique Item" in the lore.
Rare items are less common than those that are unique, but appear more frequently as loot than legendary items. They often drop with middle tier stats, and are recommended for bridging the gap between low and high level gear. Rare items can be identified by their magenta item tag and the words "Rare Item" in the lore.
Set items are dyed leather armour and accessories that can be extremely powerful when combined and are specifically obtained through various means (such as trading with NPCs, killing certain mobs, or completing a quest/dungeon). While some set items can be relatively easy to find as mob drops or loot, others such as the Clock Set require players to go to great lengths to acquire.
Legendary items are extremely uncommon loot; that can only be obtained by mob drops, trading with NPCs (including Dungeon Merchants), and loot chests. They often have higher stats and better identifications than other loot due to their low drop rate and are worth more on the player market. Legendary items can be identified by their light blue item tag and the words "Legendary Item" in the lore.
Fabled items are more powerful and rare than legendaries, but less than Mythics. They often have Major IDs, and can be identified by their red nametag. Most Fabled items are either considered useless or extremely powerful, with not many in between. For example, the Nighthawk and Deadeye are considered probably the most powerful gear of their levels, but the Heat Death and Scarlet Veil are somewhat lacking in versatility.
Mythic items are the rarest weapons in Wynncraft as of the 1.14 "Gavel Expansion" Update. They have a 0.0007% chance of dropping from Mobs and can be identified by the dark purple nametag. With the exception of perhaps Gaia, Mythics are the most powerful for whatever they are intended to do, and give the biggest stat buffs or debuffs out of almost all the gear in the game. All Mythic items correspond to specific builds (Elemental, Rainbow, Loot Bonus, etc).
Mythics have a rough 1/2000 tier 1-4 chests rate for those with optimal Loot Quality, running in decent servers. This can vary. For example, the lootrunner tri has obtained 58 mythics in ~100,000 chests with most of them opened with 40 Loot Quality. However, another player managed to find two Mythics in less than 2000 tier 1-2 chests with 0 Loot Quality.
Discoverer, the current only Mythic chestplate, can only be found in tier 3 or 4 loot chests. Since it is a level 89 chestplate, it can only be found in chests near Level 88-92 mobs. It is not viable for combat and is instead a popular choice for lootrunners that can afford its hefty price.
Mob Drops are common items obtained from killing mobs and some NPCs such as town citizens.
Since the 1.18 update, mob drops differ according to the location. However, armour, weapons and powders do not.
Rare Drops include: Powders, Red Wool, Pink Wool, Pumpkin Helmets, and Rare or Legendary Items, as well as Depressing Weapons used for the Bob's Lost Soul quest.
Daily rewards can be found in the player's compass. After looting the daily reward, you must wait 24 hours before looting it again. You can increase the loot of the daily rewards by looting it actively, up to a streak of 5. Daily rewards are based around your player level, so the higher leveled you are, the better armour and weapons you can receive.
- Lootrunning is a popular end game money making method which consists of running through a route while opening chests with Loot Bonus/Quality identifications.
